Green is one of my favorite colors, as you can see it’s prevalent in the Pomegranate Lines. I just think it is so timeless and goes with every season. In the summer it reminds me of fresh cut grass, at Christmas it invokes holly and pine. When I set a table with it, I also know the florals can be simple or grand as the greenery in them will reflect whatever pattern I choose.
For this table, I wanted to mix and match two patterns. The new hand block prints are so much fun and thought they would go perfectly with my green goblets. I folded them into the Lotus shape so that the printed edges would pop off the table cloth. The shape on the Provence pattern really goes well with that and the circles of the glasses and florals.
I also love that the plates had a leaf pattern on them. Keeping with my theme of natural elements the bamboo silverware seemed like the perfect choice. Then to jazz it up just a touch I put in my grandmother’s silver salt wells and pepper shakers. It’s a simple table that only took minutes to throw together but it’s fresh and bright and brought joy to the dinner table.
To add a little height to this setting I used a tall vase and then built out the floral arrangement with bulky flowers like hydrangeas. Using their leaves as part of the decor is an excellent way to fill more space on a smaller budget. I also liked how the shape of the vase was similar to the shape of the goblets. Try to concentrate on things like that, shape, texture and color that can bring your items together and it makes for a cohesive setting. Can’t wait to make the salmon for dinner to add some gorgeous pinks once it’s all served!
