Pre-Marathon Run Tablescape

Pat's daughter, Jennifer, was home for the weekend to join her Mother in the 43rd annual Avenue of the Giants Marathon Run (run through Humboldt Redwoods State Park) this Sunday. Both love to participate in the marathon run - especially since it is held in one of the most amazing and beautiful places in the world.

In addition to running a marathon, performing medical attention and care (Jennifer who is a doctor removed Pat's stitches from her finger where Pat and a large French knife recently battled and the tip of Pat's finger lost....), Jennifer joined us to set a table for this week. A very busy girl.....Anyway, she selected the napkin as the starting point and went from there:
Over view of the table

The place setting

The inspiration napkin (wrapped around a hot pink napkin and held by two napkin rings in matching colors)

Jennifer loves Fiesta by Homer Laughlin - so you can always be assured any table she does will use it

This is a Rose Luncheon plate

She used a Lemongrass colored Dinner plate

The other things that Jennifer loves when she tablescapes are Maryland China Company chargers and white "Primary" Noritake ceramic flatware - so you can expect to see them too.

Ceramic handled "Primary" flatware by Noritake

Glassware is "Bayonne" from Pier 1. The stems match the centerpiece candle holders.

To add a little interest, Jennifer used the Maryland China Company coasters

Simple PVC pipe cut into 1" rounds and spray painted lime and hot pink act as the napkin ring

The candle holders have colored mesh netting stuffed into the stems to add more color

One last look from the other end of the table

We will be joining Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" this Thursday:


  1. This looks like a perfect feminine celebration table with the lime and pink color combination and the swirls of ribbon in the center. I think it would be great for a birthday bash, or celebrating a marathon well run. The mesh in the candleholders is such a clever idea for adding more color. Good luck at the marathon to Pat and Jennifer (I hope Pat's finger is completely healed now)!

  2. So very pretty ... bright and cheerful! Thanks for sharing.

  3. How cheery ith the pink and green. Perfectly spring!

  4. WOW!! Gorgeous table: your colors are just striking. I love the napkins and flatware, too. Another inspirational tablescape that exemplifies all that is good about this hobby and the creativity needed to be succesful at it. Bravo! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  5. AAH my colors of spring pink and lime green this is an AWESOME table well done.Susie
