Setting a Table with Purple Dinnerware


purple, green, and yellow tablescape


This is my first tablescape on the new breakfast table since this area was redecorated.  Instead of using a tablecloth, I took advantage of the white finish.


purple, green, and yellow tablescape


The centerpiece was the last thing to go on this table and I did walk around trying to find something to use!  I wanted something with a little yellow and went to grab these flower branches and decided to use the container they were being stored in.

The place setting started with wicker chargers, vintage Homer Laughlin white chargers, purple dinner plates, floral soup bowls and vintage yellow napkins.  All pieces are from Goodwill, yard sales, and auctions.


amethyst goblets


Amethyst glasses are from Old Time Pottery.




Some votive cups with a little bling were also from Goodwill.


reed & barton flatware


The flatware is made by Reed & Barton.  You can see the napkins bring out the yellow centers of the purple flowers on the bowls.
