So, I'm sure you will understand how the little napkin rings shown in this post inspired this table setting for brunch.
I was captured at first glance by their little lemons accented by the blueberries. The little green leaves just spoke of spring, and even though I'm no "foodie" all I could think of was blueberries and cream, maybe even some lemon bars. So, home they went with me!
I began with a soft yellow tablecloth
so the deep blue chargers
(which are probably the biggest I've ever seen)
would be a standout anchor.
I then stacked a yellow scalloped charger from CTS, followed by a plain navy blue dinner plate
and a blue rimmed salad plate
from the J.C. Penney American Living collection.
I just loved the pattern of this salad plate, and
although the soup bowl is not from the same collection,
it accents the pattern quite nicely,
and I love, love, love paisley!
Inside the bowl is a beautiful paisley sprig.
The napkins, also from the J.C Penney
American Living collection
are amongst some of my faves!
To the right is a sugar and creamer
that has been around for eons -
they are from Crabtree and Evelyn
I think their casual style works well with this setting.
No matchy-matchy here.
I've tempted the designer gods
and added yet another pattern!
This is my attempt at creative floral design.
Getting those leaves to stay put
was a test of my patience!
I think I must have a thing for pitchers.
If you've visited before,
you know I seem to have
one to match every tablescape!
Whatever - a girls gotta have a vice
and I just love how it sets off my
inspiration piece - the napkin rings!
Which by the way are from BBB.
In this pic you get a glimpse of
all the accents together.
Another old piece; this butter dish is from
the Block Country Orchard collection by Gear.
Are you inspired by the little things?
