Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting so we can play with our dishes. Click on her name for lots more inspiration.
Inspiration for this tablescape came from the silk flowers above. They are purple and green hydrangeas that I fell in love with a few months ago not knowing what I would use them for.
I found these purple wavy edge plates at Walmart last month. They were only $3 each, not as good as Dollar Tree, but still a good price!
It is so hard to get a true picture of purple, it sometimes looks blue, or light purple,
I placed a sparkly leaf in the center with a sparkly purple pine cone in the center of each plate.
The gold leaf chargers and gold trim flatware compliment the purple.
For the centerpiece I placed the hydrangeas in the gold mercury glass bowl.
I have used all the gold recently in other tablescapes. I love being able to use the same items, with different tablescapes since they all turn out differently.
The photo below was taken with the flash, but it washes out the color of the flowers.
This purple is too dark:
This purple is too light!I just held a plate up to the screen and none of the pictures are the true purple! Please use your imagination! LOL!
Even the wall colors are not the true colors here:
Another one too dark and dull:
This is a very simple tablescape, but a doable one that anyone can use and can do it very inexpensively.
We have been invited to Thanksgiving dinner with friends, so it is an easy time for me! What are you doing? Cooking? Dining out? Whatever, enjoy your day!
