Recently, Zulily Bargains offered some April Cornell tablecloths, and I ordered three of them (they were really good prices, but I can’t remember how much). The one I used on the table this weekend looks like two different cloths have been combined. The top of the cloth is green and navy stripes.
The border of the cloth is a busy floral.
I realize that it is not necessary to use every color in the cloth on the table top. I never start out doing that, but somehow I usually end up with almost all of the cloth colors on top of the table.
White chargers: Lace by Kennex- purchased at J.C. Penney on line four years ago; topped by blue glass chargers purchased at a Kitchen Outlet years ago; topped by Royal Doulton dinner plates (no pattern name)-purchased at an estate sale a few years ago; topped by clear glass salad plates that belonged to my Mother; topped by green depression glass bowls.
I used a green and navy runner on top of the cloth (purchased on sale at Pier One years ago),
so I wouldn’t have to iron out the folds in the cloth for added interest.
I’ve used these stems in a blog post before. I ordered them through One Kings Lane Bargains, and each stem, in sets of four, was a different color. I ordered two sets.
The green stems were our “every day” selection when we married. I marched the juice stems down the center of the table, and I practically floated a rose in each stem,
because the stems on my rose bush are so short so the flower could be seen from both sides of the table.
Thanks for dropping by. laurie
