Pattern, pattern and more pattern in china, linens and choosing elements for an interesting tablescape is what today’s Blog is all about. Welcome, Friends, as we combine lots of different pieces to come up with a pleasing whole.
This tablescape begins with a newly found tablecloth in a lovely blue and white paisley print. Blue and white is such a great combination and I use it pretty frequently when setting a table. This one has lots of movement and a lively look to the pattern.
The plate stack starts with a shiny silver charger. Each charger is different and adds its own pattern to the place setting. The one above has an interesting edge and cut out rim. Next comes a hand painted Polish plate followed by a blue and white flowered plate. The last plate has some blue in the flowers to tie it into the blue and white theme. It also has some gorgeous greens, golds and pinks.
Here’s a closer look. You can see that little bit of blue in the green and gold plate does a great job of tying the plate into the rest of the stack. Polish and English plates make happy companions in this plate stack.
The napkin is formed into a rose and further ties the colors together. The pinks and greens, yellows and blues are represented in the top plate and echoed in the rose napkin.
Here’s a closer look at the rose.
Beautiful silver-plate in a flare pattern goes well with each of the silver-plated chargers.
Lovely crystal adds to the fun feel of the setting. The wine glass is Mikasa and each glass sports a different pattern. They add some levity to the table. A blue crystal water goblet picks up the blue and distributes it around the table.
Adding a centerpiece in deep pinks and whites picks up on the pinks and greens in the top plates and in the napkins. You can really see the pinks and deeper pinks that are distributed around the table. I love how it all pulls together to give a completed look. The cut glass vase adds some weight to the table and is a lovely vessel for the flowers. The vase sits on a flowered plate from Mikasa.
Another picture that highlights the pinks on the table. You can see the many patterns that are displayed in this table setting. The patterns are all different but they don’t conflict with one another. The multiple patterns add interest to the table while the blue and white theme adds cohesiveness.
The table colors are also reflected in the background adding support for the colors on the table.
I really liked how this one came together. Patterns and colors are basic to any tablescape so have some fun with them. Everything on the table was thrifted which allows for some interesting mixing and matching.
