Green and Blue Table for One

Inspiration for this week's table came from a glass we bought on sale at Pier 1 a while ago. Green and blue go together for a glass as well as for dish colors. Pat took an ever popular Peacock Blue Fiestaware dinner plate and paired it with a Fiesta Shamrock luncheon plate. Together with the glass, she set a table with a nautical theme.
Over view of the table. First, Pat layered a white tablecloth with a fish net. Then she used a green and light brown placemat to hold the place setting.

Next layer is a Peacock Blue Fiestaware Dinner plate

The "Driftwood" charger from World Market holds it all. It is made from Mango wood and has a very unique grain to add interest.

These very colorful glasses are from Pier 1

Flatware is inexpensive Cambridge from Ross several years ago

Pat and I walked into the Ferndale Emporium the other day and found these fantastic crab napkin rings. The Emporium is a great little local shop where you can find all kinds of unusual items for the home.

  1. I adore these colors! This makes me so happy just to look at it. Great job as always.

  2. This table is so vibrant and fun! Even my husband, who has no interest whatsoever in tablescapes, couldn't resist this one thanks to the lovely crab napkin rings (he is an aquatic ecologist who studies crustaceans). We have a set of silver lobster napkin rings but I guess I am going to have to find some crabby ones now as well!

  3. I have been in a blue and green mood for weeks now. this table fits together like well oiled machinery. The sea items are wonderful. xo marlis

  4. Love this table setting! The glassware is gorgeous and the dishes and napkins blends perfectly. I really like the touch of the netting and the shells. Your crab napkin ring is adorable. What a fun seaside tablescape!
