Bright and Sunny Tablescape and Centerpiece Wednesday!

By Karin Brosnan - Wednesday, June 27, 2012



Bright and Sunny is what I call this tablescape!
Centerpiece Wednesday (a little late)
I love the color orange and when it is mixed with lime green it is even better!



I love these Orange and white polka dot plates I bought them at TJMAXX a year or so ago...4 of them for $7.99. I used them at Halloween HERE


Here is a shot showing my beautiful chandelier that we found at a thrift store here and my cute hubby installed it for me. I just love looking at it day or night...it makes the room sparkle!
I made the lime green napkin rings out of a bunch of silk flowers. They really pop off the plates and look so nice with the crisp white napkins. The small orange glasses were purchased at a store in Albuquerque New Mexico that no longer exists.
I put together this fun centerpiece using the unique shaped white bowl and filled it with lime green candles I found at Ikea on clearance for 1.00 each. At first it looked so plain so I added the orange ribbon tied around all four candles and tied in a bow. Then I added a few Cutie oranges on the ends. I love how it looks so fresh!
I just love my bamboo placemats that I bought in Texas at Garden Ridge...I use them all the time and I have them in multiple colors...Look Here and Here.
I used these little mini glass appetizer glasses to hold a blueberry scone that has a toothpick holding a bright colored place card. Fun way to direct your guests where to sit.
Below you can see strips of orange criss cross fabric on the table....I found this fabric at a thrift store...they are actually ties used on chairs for weddings. I love these fun embellishments on the table. I simply tied knots in them all the way down each tie....mostly to cover the fact that they were really wrinkly.
Hope you enjoyed my Bright and Sunny Tablescape...I had fun putting this one together.
Ta Ta For Now......Karin :)

  12. Welcome back to blogging. Your tablescape, and your photos, just pop with color and orange and green are so fun. You will have to be careful at Tai Pan Trading -- there's always a little something to pick up. P.S. the pink salad looks yummy. Joni
