Dinner Party Tablescape in Purple and Orange

Love this shade of orange ribbon!

What a beautiful centerpiece - made by Mariterese from flowers from the Farmer's market!

Little tussie mussies of fresh herbs and scented geraniums adorn each napkin.

Vintage crystal and Arte Italica- very pretty glasses to enjoy the wine!

Mariterese's courtyard reminds me of being in New Orleans- very, very lush.

The weather in Chicago is absolutely perfect for an evening of alfresco dining! A dinner of Apricot Chicken, grilled asparagus and pasta salad- yum! The purple chargers from Romancing the Home are the perfect compliment to the vintage yellow and gold dinnerware. The gold and cream tiger motif napkins are the unexpected "pop" on the table. I hope the lucky guests enjoy the evening- Bon Appetit! Be sure to visit for other inspiring tables.

Orange is most definitely the new red! I am blown away with the gorgeous centerpiece created by Mariterese!!! The color and texture combinations are fabulous! I also love the orange ribbon on the napkins. Very chic! I used orange in my scape this week, too, paired with blue & white. Orange is the predominant color in our dining room, and it seems to have the same effect as red when it comes to teasing the appetite. It is such a cheerful color, too, but can easily take on an air of sophistication. You did a beautiful job...and the tussies tucked into the napkins are great!
