Oriental Tablescape With a Twist

Pat never designs a bland table - she loves color and mixes it freely. Today's tablescape is no exception. Although black is a fairly common color used in Oriental design, Pat mixed it up with sage green and orange to create a definitely unique setting.

The place setting - the Pumpkin orange colored napkin sits under the charger

Pat used the very popular "Bamboo" flatware by Cambridge

"Kabuki" by Mikasa salad plate

Sorry the picture is not very good - the charger is actually a soft sage green

Pat used a soft gray vase to hold white silk cherry blossoms. She placed them on a square mirror lined with votive holders and pumpkin orange tea lights that coordinate with the dishware

Our brother bought these Oriental figurines while stationed in Japan 45 years ago

  1. I love the Mikasa Kabuki china, such a pretty pattern for a lovely Spring tablescape. The cherry blossoms are lovely in the grey vase. The faux ivory figurines are a marvelous addition to a table with an oriental flair.

  2. Elegant and understated...beautiful table. Love those dishes!
