A bit of brightness here! I found this tablecloth at HomeGoods a few years ago and have been wanting to do a tablescape around it for some time. When I saw the lemon salad plates at HomeGoods this spring I knew it was time.
Struggled a bit to find the right shades of yellow, everything I have is a gold yellow instead of a lemon yellow.
We bought the Wedgewood charger at an outlet mall a few years ago. The pattern is called Night and Day. I love the raised pattern that covers the entire charger. I use this charger often.
Buying a simple white charger can really add interest to your table settings.
This dinner plate is actually a darker brighter lemon yellow than the photo shows. I bought them several years ago at Sur La Table, the pattern was called Fresh Squeezed Lemon Collection. Sur La Table has great plates and table linens, I have bought several things online on sale from there. They sell really good quality products.
This is another Bordallo Pinheiro plate from Portugal. I bought it on Ebay several years ago, Ebay sells many Bordallo Pinheiro items. I have several different patterns in my collection and this one in other colors as well The pattern is called Morning Glory, I love the detail and raised relief on their plates. I went through several different shades of green until I gave up and used this one!
The lemon plate is melamine, there are so many melamine plates being made now and they are dishwasher safe and some can even be put in the microwave. It’s from HomeGoods this spring, made by Nicole Miller Home. I bought the place mats on Amazon after returning a couple other sets that I bought online from other places that were the wrong shade of yellow. It actually is a bit brighter than the photo shows.
I bought the yellow stainless flatware online several years ago, can’t remember where. It was made by Villeroy and Boch. There was only a three piece place setting available but I really wanted the color so I bought it anyway. It is a smaller scale than many of my other flatware sets.
The plastic green hammered goblet came from Pier 1 several years ago. I bought the yellow goblet on Ebay several years ago. It was made by Noritake and the pattern is Perspective, I have the same goblet in cobalt blue and sage green. It was made between 1970 and 1983. You can still find them on Ebay.
The napkins probably came from HomeGoods, I have had them for a few years. The plastic Koziol Pip Bird napkin ring in Translucent green came from Ebay several years ago, I have it in red also. It is still for sale on Ebay.
I got the place card holders from my daughter-in-law. She used them for a birthday party and didn’t need them anymore and I grabbed them!
I went round and round about a centerpiece. I found some cute flower pots with lemons on them, a perfect match for the tablecloth and I was going to put faux lemon tree branches in them with lots of hanging lemons but all the branches I found were fake looking or too expensive so I finally decided to do this after I found a tall glass vase at HomeGoods. Hubby had to go back to the store twice for lemons. He is such a treasure!
The small white vases and lemon branches came from Hobby Lobby. Hubby and my daughter found them for me. The vases were both chipped so we got them really cheap but who can tell! They were the perfect size.
Breakfast should be served on this table setting, the brightness should wake everyone up!
