It’s easy to prepare a table when a beautiful woven silk runner and tulips left from Valentine’s are already there to inspire.
Looking in the cupboard for dishes, the fake Fiesta ones offered the most possibility.
The lavender was an obvious choice, but looking again at the runner I saw hints of orange in the stripes where color had merged to create a new tint.
That made the coral plate an interesting addition.
Mixing patterns and textures is something I enjoy, so the multicolored/patterned napkins from Anthropologie were an easy choice. That store is such a great place to find fun accents and sometimes there’s even something special on the sale rack!
I love using these textured pink glasses at every opportunity. There’s no telling how old they are as they once belonged to my very good friend’s grandmother who would be well past 100. Needless to say, they are very special treasures.
Finally, just for fun I added a little bell to each place. I have such a collection , and I like finding ways to get them off display shelves.
Simple though it is, the table has what for me makes a happy table: color, texture, pattern, whimsy. Now, if I can just decide what to fix for dinner all will be well! Any ideas?
