Turquoise and Orange Table


It's been quite a while since I've posted anything, since I've been up north visiting friends and family.  The night before I left, I set this table up outside on the white deck for a quiet dinner with Mr. Pressed Pants.  

It was inspired by this fabric I found that I intended to make into napkins.  Then I decided to take an even easier way out and used it for a runner over a white caterer's linen cloth.

I already had all of these dishes and the placemat.  They've all been used in several posts in the past.

When I found these orange Gerbera daisies at Whole Foods, I knew how I would do this table.

The tablecloth photographed blue, but it was bright white.  The napkin is a bright turquoise with a turquoise acrylic napkin ring.  I used our everyday flatware from Williams Sonoma.

The daisies went into a turquoise McCoy vase and I added this white French butter dish and this salt and pepper dish from Pierre Deux.  (I miss that store.)  Then I chose an orange acrylic water glass and a clear Reidel stemless wine glass.

Here's the coffee pot, cream and sugar sitting on the railing.

Here's the way it came together.

This was a lot of color......

but I loved the slight "specialness" it gave to our last evening together for two weeks.
