Tablescape Thursday

in the yard 016

     While my grandsons were playing on the patio, and I was watering the yard this morning, I found a spot of absolute inspiration for Tablescape Thursday.I looked at the following plants and saw green and white.

in the yard 021

     I immediately thought it would be the perfect place to tuck a tablescape for one- all done in green and white.

     I started with a white matelasse runner , followed by a Bordallo charger.

    I topped the charger with a Kinnex Lace dinner plate and a Bordallo salad plate.

     The other additions?

I used my silverplate and a light green goblet.



Go to Susan’s Between Naps on the Porch for more Thursday tablescapes.

Where on earth do you store all your fabulous dinnerware? You have got the best collection of serving ware I have ever seen amassed by one person. I am pea green (get it?) with envy!

I love it. Inspiration from nature. Love all your pretty dishes, especially the Bordallo salad plate. The texture is fabulous.

I haven't done a tablescape in awhile and I am due. Inspiration isn't coming easy. I pulled weeds today and took a nap. Hmmm...don't see anything there.

Have a lovely rest of the week, Laura!
