Summer Tablescape



















We just received these beautiful new serving bowls at the store and it inspired us to set a new table in our entry. On a midnight blue taffeta tablecloth, we placed silver crocodile glass chargers and layered Arte Italica Pewter rimmed plates on top. The iridescent grey napkins also came in this week and are perfect for the color of the dishes. Folding the napkins in triangles, we then placed the silver lined pearlized bowls on top. Fuchsia orchids and flowering cherry blossoms added the pop of color. Vintage mother of pearl flatware worked perfectly with the dinnerware. Large pearlized bowls held the orchids, but would be perfect for a cold pasta salad, fruit salad, or greens. Vintage crystal stemware mixed with a new silver compote added the sparkle to the table. The overall effect was dreamy, reminding us of a cool summer pool -a perfect tablescape to kick off the beginning of the summer entertaining season! Please be sure to visit www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com to see many new tablescapes.
