Transforming the Table



I started out with my white dining room table with nothing on it. Plain and boring.

I pick a color for my tablescape based on napkins or plates or something in the centerpiece. I love the colors of these blue and green napkins they are so refreshing don't you think? I just picked them up over the weekend at TJMAXX 4 for $5.99. The colors remind me of California for some reason and the beach!
So that is what I am going with. For my centerpiece I stacked my white plates with black lettering (also from TJMAXX a few years ago) on one of my clear cake plates and topped it with a birds nest under a glass dome!

On my npakins I have used a set of my White berry wreath napkin rings. They really pop against the colorful napkins. You can buy them for $1.00 each here on my blog.

Isn't the green cut crystal wine glass gorgeous!! These belonged to my grandmother and she passed them to my mom and recently my mom passed them on to me!
I llike mixing plain things with sparkly fancy things.
I loved the print on the napkin so much that I used one in the center for a a mini tablecloth. That left me short one napkin but I remembered that I had some other green and blue striped napkins and brought those out and they matched perfectly!! I was able to use them in this tablescape as well as the paisley ones. I just did it every other one and I think it just adds to the table to use more than one fabric!

I also tried using lime green napkins with a blue napkin ring around it.
I loved that too!

How about just a crisp white one napkin with the blue napkin ring!
I love that one too!

It is just so refreshing isn't it?

Here is the same table only I changed out the centerpiece. I used my thrift store glass hurricane jar and filled it with decorative lime green apples and I also used white glasses instead of the cut crystal ones and I changed out the floral napkin in the center for the striped one.

I am amazed at how versatile the white dishes are. I am able to use them in so many tablescapes and have it look so different!
Just by changing out the salad plate makes it look completely different. Here I added back in the cut crystal glasses and blue soup bowls sitting on top of the lime green salad plates.
Setting the table is so fun to do and makes meal time more fun.
I decided to have another giveaway!!

A set of 8 napkin rings any color (white, blue, red or pink)!!
