Old World Country - Tablescape



With the changes to the breakfast room wall, you can see that post here, I just had to put together a coordinating tablescape.


I borrowed a few things off the kitchen counters. I just thought the colors worked well with the placesettings.


The yellow and orange looks so good with the colors in the room.


The flatware is from Horchow on sale and the white plates are from Big Lots. Everything else are Goodwill finds. Isn't it fun to find such treasures.


I love these salad plates. Green, yellow and orange, all my favorite colors.


The amber goblets came from Pier One years ago, and the small wines are also from GW.


The sun is going down so I decided to light the candles. Love the little chef's face with the glow of the light.


The little baskets, votive holders and candles all came from the Dollar Tree.


Bright and cheery.


Love the look against the breakfast room wall vignette. Coordinates beautifully.


I'm linking to the following parties:

Vignette Friday @ Color Outside The Lines

  12. Another lovely job, Marty! I wonder how you keep coming up with imaginative tablescapes! The dishes look great together and I am loving the cute centerpiece. At first I thought the cloche has lemons and limes in it! lol!

    Nicely done! :-)

  13. I love the variety of sources represented on your table, Marty! No one would ever know which was from the dollar store, Big Lots or Horchow unless they were told. I think that's one of the great things about decorating. You can bring in items from so many different price points and mix them together for a very cohesive look.

  16. Hi Marty Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share this evening. I love the mixture of the summer colors, the yellow, green and orange work so well together. I am so surprised.

    Love the plates and the pattern is gorgeous. Your two glasses looks so awesome together. Quite exquisite.

    I really enjoyed the photo of the light going down and the candle glow on the little chef's face. It is just precious. Thank you so much for sharing with me today. I have so enjoyed my visit.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  17. Your mixture of smooth and textured elements with warm, glowing colors goes to create a welcoming, lovely 'countryside' tablescape. I really like the lemons and limes confined within the cloche. Thank you for sharing your charming design and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay
