69th Tablescape - Mikasa Mediterranean

 Had a lot of fun with this tablescape!  Isn't it amazing how you pick the dishes you want to use and then add and take away accent items til it all comes together....

 The placemats are a turquoise, same as in the plates.  Then I pulled the green from the plates using the green chargers and green flatware...
 The flatware is is ceramic - "Denby"
 The napkins are "Jonathan Allen"
 The dinnerware place settings are Mikasa "Mediterranean".

 The centerpiece is a "McCoy" pitcher.

 Pulling the turquoise from the table to the buffet.  These large hurricane lamps are cut crystal - and I purchased them at Goodwill for $3.06 each - what a deal....

Hope you enjoyed another thrifty tablescape...

  1. "...and the blue pitcher is one that my sister has loved for so long, that I should have given her, but I decided to wait until after I did this tablescape..."

    haha- looks great!!! The plates are so unique!

  2. Beautiful tablescape! I love how you pulled away this beauty with such terrific colors! Love the dishes, very pretty. Your dining room is great, it evokes the 1930's with the silver, kind of art deco, I love it! Hugs, FABBY
