Teal and White tablescape

Back in June, the girls found themselves as guests at Diane's again. She is certainly a wonderful hostess and pulls out all the stops to entertain her guests. Sit back and enjoy this gorgeous table!

Sorry about the phone pictures. Can you believe I left the camera at home? Me either! Teal, silver and white is really a very comforting and elegant setting.

Silver napkin rings held the napkin and sheath in place. Sheath from Pier One. Teal plates on silver chargers with a Pier One salad plate. Personalized place cards to make everyone feel wanted and welcomed.

The teal glass plates let the charger shine right through.

Silver goblets always make a statement. Individual salt and peppers also graced each placesetting. Notice the peacock feathers sticking out of the rose centerpiece.

Gorgeous votive holders provided ambient light closer to the table. 

The table looked so opulent!! And the food matched the table decor, over the top wonderful!!

So glad you stopped by. Thank you Diane for your hospitality, generous invitations, delicious food and friendship!  Linking to Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish and Susan's Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Thanks all for coming by. I so appreciate your visits and comments. Summer has taken it's toll on us. The days are long and miserably hot (not complaining, really), the yard keeps calling with things to do and we've been on a trip or two. I'm sure things will get back to normal!!  Oh wait, my sister in law, her daughter and four of her grands will be here this week...  so much for normal!!

The salad plates really are stunning and different, I was shocked to learn they are from Pier 1, I would have guessed they were from a very upscale specialty store!! So pretty!

Such a pretty table. I have those same silver goblets. I need to get mine out and use them more often. I just don't want to polish them. Love those aqua napkin sheaths, and they look so pretty with the silver. laurie
