This tablescape is for a brunch I am hosting. Being that this is one of the coldest days we have had in NJ so far this Winter, I was inspired to create a vibrant tablescape.

I started with a lively patterned April Cornell tablecloth. The color palette is sage green, gold, and pink so I coordinated with green placemats (Ralph Lauren) and gold napkins (Martha Stewart collection) and simple silver napkin rings (Reed & Barton).

With such a bold and colorful tablecloth, I kept the place setting simple layering my wedding china (Lenox, Opal Innocence) with four Limoges dessert plates I bought a few years back at Grand Bazaar Antiques that has soft yellow and green floral accents and some gold detail on the rims. I also chose a set of 4 vintage tea cups and saucers (Remington) that picks up on the pink in the tablecloth. The coffee pot, creamer, and sugar bowl are also Lenox Opal Innocence. The vintage compote has pink florals and is Jean Pouyat Limoges (to find out more about this piece, see prior post).

For the centerpiece, I chose one of my favorite antique crystal vases-I love the beading on it and its unique shape-and filled it with the same palette as the tablecloth: pink gerber daisies and yellow roses. The candles are glittery gold (Oak Forest Design, see Taper Caper!) and I picked up these Tiffany’s crystal candlesticks at Summit Antiques.



Hope this table brightens your day!
