Tablescape Thursday...warm reds, yellows, and greens

t
Here is a warm tablescape featuring shades of red, yellow and green.
Three mini olive jars anchor the center of the table and are filled with tropical leaves and sunflowers.

Red and yellow striped dinner plates sit atop bronze chargers. A lemon yellow bowl is ready for some juicy summer fruit while tall glass tumblers with a slice of lemon are ready for some fresh squeezed lemonade.

The table runner is made using four placemats placed side by side. These are reversible and are a burnt red on the other side with yellow stripes...just like the napkins. I love how the dark stained table grounds the tablescape.


A coffee station is waiting nearby...flavored coffee anyone?

What's your favorite coffee or tea? Please share!*!

This is just one of the prettiest tablescapes I have seen so far, and I am trying to make my way down thst LONG list!! ;-D

The yellow and red bowls look so familiar to me and I can't place them. Do you remember where you bought them? I just love them and all of your dishes. The olive jars are unique as well.

I like the idea of using the placemats as a table runner, I will remember that! The coffee station is a nice touch as well.

My favorite coffee? Nice and bold! Lately I have been drinking Tully's French Roast and if I am out and about, nothing beats Dunkin' Donuts!!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend with your family! :-D

So beautiful and cheery! Good idea to use the placemats like that as a runner!

My favorite tea is creme brulee black tea leaves (hot.)
