Bordallo Lemon Leaf Table

Enough Winter! Enough Winter tables! It's storming outside, again. The rain is pelting down. It's cold.  I was just without power for over three hours after going through several outages throughout the day, and now it's time to stop with this....Am I frustrated? Yes.....I shouldn't complain, I know, as I say ad nauseam, we need the water here in California, but how about spreading it out a little bit more???? We are fifteen inches above normal already.....and we still have weeks of the raining season to go.....

So Pat took pity on me (she lives a half hour south of me and has had no power outages) and decided on a very UN-Winter table.

One of our prized possessions in our collection of Fiestaware : Vintage "Forest Green" Bread/Butter plate [1951-1959].

Where it came from:
Placemats - from TJMaxx last year
Chargers - "Lemon Leaf" by Bordallo Pinheiro from eBay and Replacements
Coupe Dinner Plate - "Home" from Target several years ago
Accent/Salad Plate - from Pier 1 last year
Bread/Butter Plate - "Forest Green" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Replacements
Flatware - Sage "Sofia" by Hampton Forge from Tuesday Morning several years ago
Glassware - "Lawrence" from Pier 1 three or four years ago
Yellow Checked Napkins - from Pier 1 several years ago
White Napkin - from Tuesday Morning
Napkin Rings - Inexpensive PVC pipe cut into 1" rounds and spray painted
Glass Cylinders - from Michael's
Glass Candle Holders - from TJMaxx last year
Candles - from Michael's

  5. What a wonderful table!! If "smell-o-vision" existed I bet you could smell the fresh scent of lemons in the room!! Love, love, love the bright colors and the yellow and green combination! Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  6. That table brings the sunshine even if there's none outside! The lemon patterned placemats and accent plates are perfect together, and as usual, the whole table is stunning.

  7. Your table is like a breathe of fresh air this time of year!!!I love those chargers!!
