Beating The Winter Blues Tablescape

Even though we are going through a horrible, horrible drought at the moment, most of the nation is experiencing typical winter weather. Pat decided to "beat the blues" with a colorful table:
Over view of the table

The place setting

Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings

To beat the Winter blues, Pat chose three different colors for the glassware (we might not have water, but Pat is making allowances for "other liquids" - she said enough of that and we won't care if we have water or not.........only my sister.......)

Purple, Yellow, Periwinkle Blue, Tangerine, and Rose........

Pat used a Waechtersbach dinner plate instead of Fiesta Yellow - it is much brighter

Nothing dull about the napkin, either

Where it came from:
Colorful Placemat - Pier 1
Flatware - "Montana" by Gourmet Settings from Bed, Bath, and Beyond

We will be joining Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" this Thursday:


  1. This is so bright and pretty! I love all the colors on a drab winter day!

  2. There's no such thing as too much color for me, so I absolutely love this. Color is the ultimate happy for me.
