Tablescape Thursday

I'm joining Susan's Tablescape Thursday this week. It's still very hot here in FL and I'm not ready for fall's browns and oranges just yet, so I opted for a setting with mostly greens.
Inspiration for this tablescape came from these April Cornell napkins:
I bought two sets of these napkins a few months apart not realizing they were very similar.
Today I chose the napkins on the left as the background color was closer to the tablecloth.
The placesetting:
The dinner plates are from Dollar Tree. The salad plates from Marshall's.
Napkins from T.J. Maxx, I've had the napkin rings so long I've forgotten where I bought them.

The Centerpiece:

started with this iridescent dish from TJ Maxx:
the bottom is also pretty:
but, alas, the bowl can't even been seen!

I used velvet and silk flowers with faux berries.

The goblets are also from T.J. Maxx



A special place for you!

Please join us!


I hope you like my slow transition to fall here in hot Florida!
Thanks to Susan, Between Naps on the Porch, for hosting. Click on her name for lots more inspiration.

My favorite thing about it is the colors. I'm just like you in that I'm not ready to leap into the oranges and browns yet. I love the greens.

Those napkins (both sets) are the kind of thing I like to find.

Oooooohhh, Katherine, I love the salad plates!!! I have been a good girl and stayed out of Home Goods all summer long, so I'm glad to live vicariously through others' great finds! You good folks in Florida have the luxury of pretty much year-found summer temps, so enjoy!

Hi K!
It is lovely. Such pretty colors. I agree, it is still summer here, people at the beach. Not ready for browns and golds. Plenty of time for that!
Hope all is well there.
