I found this elephant this weekend at a thrift/home consignment shop and I knew he would be just right for the tablesetting I had in mind.
|Not only was he the perfect centerpiece.....he was just the right colors as well!|
|I brought out my tropical palm candle sticks.......and ended up smashing one of the globes when I got distracted and it tumbled over. But hopefully, I will find another globe soon to fit. In the meantime, I decided to use them anyway.|
|and in for a close up......|
|Here's a place set just for you!|
Paper bamboo napkins in green water goblets.
|A layering of the dishes --- on top we have a creamy dish that's a little ruffled......|
and next a heavy green glass plate that has olives etched into the design......
|....and our last dish is my "workhorse" creamy white dinner plate from a set I found at Goodwill about 5-6 years ago.|
|Aren't these darling placemats? I treated myself to a set for my birthday back in June.|
|And what could go more perfectly with bamboo napkins....than bamboo flatware?|
Shades of greens cloth napkins......I know I have two napkins here.....two napkin "rule" at my house.....cloth for your lap to protect your clothing.....paper for your mouth to protect my cloth napkins!
|And a final view of my tropical table....at this angle you get a view of my new carpet......|
