You may remember that I’m crazy for bottles so I filled my trusty green ones with blooms gathered on my morning walk and placed them around the bowl. Voila, a simple centerpiece.
From there it was easy to pick these wonderful plates purchased at Marshall’s 13 years ago. No question that I couldn’t resist them because they reminded me of Italy for which I’ve had long affection. Also, I like their shape and, as with the bowl, the multiple colors make them very easy to work with.
Playing off the plate’s border, I chose these olive themed napkins and tucked them into the wonderful napkin rings that I found on my recent Italian adventure.
I thought hard about buying these, and I am so glad they came home with me. Not only are they a reminder of a wonderful month, their herb leafed design is such a unique feature.
Flatware from TJ Maxx and glasses from Target complete the table which now is ready for a casual dinner that we are sharing with friends who are traveling by boat and using our mooring for a few days.Hmmm, with a distinctive Italian flair, it’s a good thing I have ravioli in the refrigerator as it would be a shame not to serve a meal that complements the table. You wouldn’t believe how often the table setting influences our evening’s menu. Somehow I think it all goes together.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
