I was excited, when Kathleen challenged us to do an all white table with an accent color. I have had this table in my mind ever since I made a trip to the Old Time Pottery store in Destin, Florida.
While I was shopping there, I bought these wonderful beaded napkin rings and these fabulous aqua wine glasses. Both were great bargains and every time that I looked at them, I thought how pretty they would look with white.
I had purchased these Fino Lino "Florentine" placemats, runner and napkins on One Kings Lane a few months ago and thought they would be a nice foundation for the white table.
I had several choices for white plates, but I always seem to reach first for my Lenox "Opal Innocence Carved" dinner plates, since they always add texture to any setting. Next, I used J. C. Penney white "Coventry" salad plates, which are more the size of luncheon plates. On top, I placed a Clay Art "Sunflower" salad plate for even more texture.
I do own white flatware, which I used in my July 4th post, but it seemed too casual for this table. Kathleen said that we could use silver flatware, so I chose Wallace "Sir Christopher". Again, it added a lot of texture and shine to the place setting.
I thought that my Cambridge "Diane" stemware would work with this table, since the etching shows white on the goblets.
I love the way that the aqua pops of color look with all of the white.
For the centerpiece, I started with simple white vase that is actually a pitcher from Tuesday Morning with white mums inside. I, also, placed on the runner tall silverplate Towle salt and pepper shakers and white birds from Michael's.
