I love the colors of yellow and blue together. There is something so refreshing about it. So today, I choose those colors to set my table with. Nothing fancy. Just simple. Yet pretty.
The shades on these places are a muted pale color. I just love them. I felt they fit in perfectly with the weather we have been having here in CA. Sunny, yet not very warm. Still a little bit of a chill in the air.
I didn't have any napkin rings to go with this setting (I KNOW!) so I just tucked the napkin in under the salad plate.
I like this look. It seems like all the magazines and stores are starting to do this with their napkins too.
Even though we are not going to have any company over, I still got out the real silver. I wanted a bit of shine brought to the table. It shows how you can mix expensive, fancy items with more plain items to make your tablescape look beautiful.
Here you can see the pattern on the plates. Even though they are plain in color, they are not plain in design.
The tablecloth and napkins are by April Cornell and I found them at TJ Maxx. I thought the colors in them were a great match for the plates.
The center piece is what inspired this whole tablescape really. I saw it and fell in love with color.
Of course, the little white Target,salt and pepper birds fit in nicely. A little touch of Spring! Plus the white is a nice pop of color on the table.
Here is a better look at that pitcher. I put flowers in but of course you could use it to serve iced tea, lemon aid or water.
The serving dishes are all white. I just went through what I already had and thought they all looked nice together so out they came. The food will be added at dinner time.
So there you have it! A simple, yet pretty tablescape.
I got the dinner and salad plates at TJ Maxx also. I just love that store. No I don't get paid to say that.
I'm linking this post up to Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch. If you have not yet done so, go take a look at all the other beautiful tablescapes over there. These ladies have some wonderful ideas!
