Tablescape Thurs. - It's All About Flowers


How fun to be joining Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thurs. Such a fun chance to play with my dishes.

My Mother's Day flowers are still so pretty, they just keep opening more and more and getting prettier and prettier, so naturally this table is all about the flowers.


I love the colors of the flowers and wanted the table to echo all the same colors.


Since the flowers are yellows, golds, oranges and white, I chose two table runners with the same colors. I love the crewel design and colors in these runners and they seemed perfect for the flowers.


Touches of orange to accent the flowers.


I kept the garden theme going with the placesettings. White chargers, yellow dinner plates, white leaf salad plates and orange leaf bowls.


Amber goblet and clear wine glasses.


My ivory Horchow flatware and a checked napkin in colors to compliment the runners.


A few tealights and a couple of orange candles.


Thanks for letting me share my Mother's Day flowers.


Chargers - Roscher Enchanted Baroque
Yellow Dinner Plate - Nikko Woodbury
Leaf Salad - Homegoods - no markings
Leaf Bowl - Better Homes and Gardens Collection
Ivory Flatware - Horchow
Runners and Napkins - Ones I made years ago.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  16. Hey Marty... We have the same white ceramic bread basket! :-)
    Your Mothers Day flowers are BEAUTIFUL! I just love the assorted colors. We both also used white pitchers in our posts this week. LOL Great minds alike again.

    Your ivory Horchow flatware is so special looking & I adore your scalloped edge chargers. You pulled all the colors of the arrangement together beautifully. I took the easy way out & just did all cream. ~giggle~

    I hope your Mothers Day was extra special.
    Hugs,

  26. I really like how you have used "leaf" dishes and rich orange colours in this 'scape! Usually, you think of those as fall accessories but you have inspired me to get some of mine out and use them for summer. Your flowers are gorgeous and make the perfect centerpiece in that pitcher!

  48. Marty, I was all set to say how smart you were to think of buying TWO runners to overlap that way, and then I saw you'd MADE them! I am going to make some for myself -- I've only made one for my mother's table till now. Your table is so beautifully put together -- all the whites and creams with pops of orange really make your pretty Mother's Day flowers the star!
