This cheery tablescape begins with a vintage black and white checked tablecloth, a great base for all the color to come.
A chartreuse green runner (or actually a cute scarf from Target) adds a pop of color. Next, I layered my Hampton Green dinner plates from Crate & Barrel atop a simple black placemat.
How could you not love these Wild Flora dessert plates by Zak Design (available at Hobby Lobby).
And that's also where I found this fabulous fabric, June Bug (The Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection) which I whipped up into napkins.
Covered with butterflies and dragonflies, flowers and do-dads, this fabric is adorable. I like the playful look of my Aero flatware against the napkins. Of course when it came to glassware, I scoured the cabinets for something colorful...
...and settled on these bubbly glasses with multi-colored swirls.
Just perfect. I twinkle of candlelight comes from some brightly colored votives perched on my very versatile centerpiece,
decorated with these cute little...
...beaded dragonflies from Pier 1. I think it's time to plan a menu. After a big holiday dinner, one of my nieces thanked me saying she always appreciates all the work that goes into these parties, but that just once, I should take it easy and just serve M&M's and wine. I think with this tablescape...
...that just might be a menu that I could pull off! Thanks for the advice, Kate!
