It's time to tablescape again!
This week I drew my inspiration from my Lang 2010 kitchen calendar. They have such wonderful pictures I have a hard time throwing them away. This was the picture for January 2010 that inspired me for this week's table.
Welcome to my "orange blossom" table.
Here's your place!
This blue and white bowl and stand was given to me by my parents almost 20 years ago. When I saw the picture, I knew I had a similar blue and white bowl and so I started "shopping" around the house.
Orange bowl overview.
Blue glasses were found a couple of years ago when I was finding all sorts of colored stemware at thrift stores, antique shops and Goodwill. I think this pattern is called "Jamestown".
The mercury glass votives came from Target Christmas 2009 and since I couldn't find any orange for my table through linens or china -- I just curled some orange ribbon around.
The napkins are the only things that are new (other than the fresh oranges). They came from Marshall's $7.99 for four.
My "Style Sister" napkin rings were the perfect compliment.
Layering of dishes and flatware.
Shell patterned everyday flatware.
These blue and white dishes were found last Spring at Marshall's -- do you believe that these are my only blue and white dishes?
Love Johnson Brothers transferware.
White Gibson Clairmont dinner plates.
Antique Irish linen placemats.
So how do you think I did with my inspiration picture?
Time to light the tealights....
....and say goodnight from the "Orange Blossom" table.
This is week # 3 with my paperwhites. I've got some more tiny growth from three more of the bulbs.
Be sure to visit Susan of "Between Naps On the Porch" this week for tables that will welcome you and inspire you!
