Vegetable Soup Table

Dish hoarder confession: this week's table was set because Pat could reach the flatware used on it. All of our other tablescaping flatware was buried behind an avalanche of dinnerware, glassware, napkins, and other stuff in my "dish room" (a small unused bedroom dedicated to tablescaping.) That's because I had to move out three dozen boxes to get to a box of glassware painted with flowers on them for our other tablescaping blog. Of course, the box I needed was on the bottom of the last eight-foot-high stack way in the back between shelving units.....

Anyway, the accent plate was on a shelf just inside the door - an easy reach. Ergo, the theme to this week's table is "casual" and vegetables.

The napkin ring was selected because Pat could just barely reach around the door to the dishroom and it was the closest.

Fortunately, all the Fiestaware is store in the laundry room (that's another story.......)

  1. Purple and green is one of my favorite color combinations. And I just love both styles of glassware!

  2. This looks colorful and wonderful.So very beautiful. The colors just make you feel happy. Beautifully taken photographs. Love the napkin rings. How pretty they are. Thank you very much for stopping by to leave your sweet comment for my homing coming cat after a year. Sweet of you. Yes we are happy to see him. Everyday he comes here for his nap and for his catty food. He plays a lot these days and wanted to be petted. Love Sujatha:)

  3. for a table set from what was "within reach," this one looks beautifully designed. Love it and all your wonderful tablescapes.

  4. I'm amazed at how much I like the purple and red together in your plate/bowl/napkins/stemware mixture. I love it all! It's very fresh and fun. Color energizes!
