Tablescape Thursday Friends and Fabric

I'm doing a double post here because I purchased some fabrics that I liked to go in my dining and living rooms.  The rooms are open to each other but I wanted the drapes to be different but compliment each other.  My kitchen has black in the granite with a soft green so this printed fabric blends in well. 

This is a picture of my patio door valance and roman shade.  The striped roman shade can be let down to cover the entire window for privacy.

I wanted to bring a little Spring in my tablescape centerpiece so I started with this ceramic planter.  I first used an olive topiary to give a touch of  French flair with some greenery bushes all around the bottom of topiary. Anytime it is Spring, I think of birds so I added a nest so she is comfy.

The bird is hovering over a cute cement bunny.
The centerpiece is quite simple with a bouquet of Spring flowers.

The color scheme started with these beautiful paper napkins.  The contrast of the black background with yellow flowers just set the stage.  My yellow plates are big enough to use as chargers. The black Fiesta dinner plate pulls the color scheme together.  I used my black flatware that you can see in an earlier post.

This is the detail edging on the charger plate.

I used yellow glass stemware.

You can view the setting from this angle.  The black bamboo placemats anchor the settings with the table.

I sometimes add an accent plate such as this butterfly plate.

I used this tablescape when my friend
Beverly at My Sew Sweet Studio and her husband came over to put the final touches on my drapes that she made for my dining and living rooms.  Click on Beverly's name to see the full story.
