Simplicity is Beauty

This looks a lot simpler than my other tablescapes.

It was a perfect time to take photos because the sun was setting. Do you see it out there?

Isn't the sky beautiful?

I used a dish set by Villeroy and Boch called Twist Alea. I combined the dinner plate (Verde), salad plates (limone) and dessert plates (caro). My stepdaughter has this set, I think in limone for one of her wedding patterns and I want to eventually give this to her to add to her set, but I want to use them first. I got a really good deal on Ebay.

I really like the combination of colors and the pattern is very contemporary I think, so I used a flatware set with simple lines also.

The plate chargers are a really faint green translucent glass.

Here is the salad plate.

And here is the dinner plate.

For a centerpiece, I just placed a peach on a tall stand, 2 tapered candles on crystal holders and a live olive plant in a ceramic lion pot.

Crystal water goblets and La Rochere wine glasses. They have similar shapes, don't they?

Isn't the olive plant pretty? I bought it on line from Sur La Table on clearance for $14 and it was already in this pretty ceramic pot with lions. I did not know they sold live plants there. I wonder if I can plant it outside. Does anybody know if they grow in Mississippi?

I love the lions on the pot.

The table topper is actually a bridge cover. I found it in an antique shop downtown and it included 3 matching napkins. I love the braided edging and the linen material.

Thank you so much for your visits and especially to you who takes the time to leave a comment. Special thanks to the following wonderful hostesses. I hope you all get to visit them too.
