Purple Summer Garden Table

Several months ago, Pat picked up a set of inexpensive dinnerware from Ross. It was called "Vera" by Coventry and then it was put away in my garage for a "future use." Well, today is the day - she pulled it from the storage shelf and came up with this table:

Since the dinnerware and charger are rather "bold" Pat used simple flatware - "Vintage Countryside" by Ricci

This is "Lemongrass" Fiesta(ware) sold at Kohl's as a luncheon plate

  1. Another bright and cheerful table with lavender and lime green. Love it!
    Have a great day, Pat and Katie!

  2. Wow, purple! & beautiful, love the china and probably would have grabbed it myself. :)
    So pretty with the 3 vases of flowers on the table too.

  4. Beautiful summery colors! Great dishes- love the Vera floral pieces. The floral arrangements are perfect!
