As confessed before, I love bottles and frequently have them as part of table decor. Sometimes they are filled with blooms, other times they may be a candleholder or they may simply add color to the table as they do here.
The runner in shades of purple, orange and green was already in place and provided clues for the colors to be repeated. With all the shapes, sizes and colors of bottles I have, it was no problem picking the ones that would work.
I hadn’t thought about what dishes to use for dinner, but when I opened the cabinet door, these jumped right out. They are from Target’s Octavia Hill Collection and have all the right colors. How lucky is that!
Completing the setting for a week night dinner at home are green Fostoria glasses and a mixed collection of Pier One napkins. Setting the table is, for me, the fun part of preparing dinner. The little extra effort to make it attractive communicates positive vibes to the family and, perhaps, makes the food taste better!
Later in the day, the light shining through the glass added an extra sparkle. Until that moment, I had not noticed that the colors on the table were very much the same as those in the chair behind. I’ll not confess to that being purposeful!
With the table set, it’s time to move on to dinner. Since it is the beginning of the Chinese New Year, this will be a good time to try one of Grace Young’s stir fry recipes. Come back tomorrow and I’ll share some of her tips with you.
