Love aqua in the Spring.
For the centerpiece, I decided on all white flowers. Photos of making the floral arrangement will be at the end of the post. Little white porcelain bird figurine is Haviland. Gravy boat with aqua rim and monogram is Old Paris found at a charity consignment shop as well as the aqua-rimmed bowl. Candles, glass candlesticks and prisms all from Pottery Barn.
Next in the tablescape build is this dinner plate with aqua rim, gold lattice and a burnt-orange center motif. It is by French maker Bernadaud in the Etoile pattern. I only have dinner plates in this pattern as I like to do a mix.
For the tablecloth, I am using a thin quilted scalloped cloth with embroidered flower clusters in the same aqua tone made by Martha Stewart as well as the aqua hemstitched napkins. Napkin rings are by Kim Seybert. Love the big aqua stones and beads. I am using a mix of flatware, some antique mother of pearl and a Durgin Empire fork with a Durgin Iris spoon.
Stemware is William Yeoward's Flavia pattern for water and Waterford's Colleen pattern for white wine.
The centerpiece is made in an old white ironstone tureen with crown handles which you can't see. It sits in a metal lift that has a glass bottom and swirled metal arms.
I found the metal stand and white ironstone at Roundtop antiques show.
I add the greenery first to the shape that I want the overall design to be and then insert the flowers. Be sure to remove the stamens of the Lilies or you will have orange stains all over your tablecloth.
I am participating in Tablescape Thursday this week on the blog Between Naps on the Porch. To see all the entries, after 10:00AM Eastern on Thursdays, go here:
