White Plate Challenge

Cuisine Kathleen of "Let's Dish" [ ] issued a challenge to tablescape bloggers for this week posting - design a tablescape using white dishes and only one other color. Pat set about to do just that. Here's the sleek, modern table that she came up with:
Over view of the table - just white and olive green

Close up of the place setting

Flatware is sleek, shiny, and very modern.

The pattern is "Fluence" by Oneida

The perfect choice - inexpensive Dollar Store glassware

The plates are also sleek, smooth, and modern looking. The simple olive green napkin is folded and placed under the salad plate.

One of Pat's favorite things to do to add interest to a table - use matching colored tea lights or votives

The centerpiece consists of just four glass cylinders holding white candles - no fuss, no glitz

One last look from the other end of the table
Where it came from:
White tablecloth - gift from Pat
Olive Green/Teal Reversible Placemats - from Pier 1

We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" this Wednesday for her annual "Let There Be White Challenge":


  1. Sleek and Modern says it all! Gorgeous and I love the subtle green! Great job on the challenge!


  2. This table looks so fresh! The shade of green is just so pretty and I adore the square hurricanes holding the candles. How did you ever find those placemats in the perfect green shade for the table - wow. Beautiful job!

  3. Wow....your table is downright spectacular! sooo much of it I am in love with....the modern square white dishes...and that flatware?......if those every turn up stolen?

    it wasn't me...Honest! Love love love your table!

  4. A beautiful tablescape with a modern design! I love the elegant white square china with the olive green place mats and napkins. This is accented by the great olive green glassware. Have a wonderful week!


  5. This olive accent color is very nice! The entire table is so well put together and so sleek and clean. Linda

  6. Perfectly cool and sleek. Cools us down this summer.

  7. I love the look of those candles in the large glass cylinders!

  8. This definitely says "sleek and modern". Well done! The soft green with the crisp white plates offers a cooling ambiance for this last day in July.

  9. Modern, sleek, and elegant all at the same time. I love the square plates and the green stemware.

  10. Very calming! Crisp and sharp, great job, you met the challenge!
    Thanks for linking to Let's Dish!

  11. Absolutely stunning! My jaw literally dropped.... (maybe it's the TMJ) but WOWZA your table is stunning. Hugs, Holly @ coconutheadsurvivalguide

  12. So simple, clean and green~I imagine an Asian inspired or vegan menu served as art on those beautiful white square plates!

  13. I love it! Its very modern and contemporary, which I would not normally like, but the olive green with the white is very appealing. Jennifer

  14. garbage. whoever called this sleek and modern has no understanding of minimalism watch 2001 100 times in 10 days.

    1. this has extra junk everywhere. its flowery in its desire- the opposite of the spirit of modern. about as modern as plastic covers over grandmas couch.
