I first fell in love with peacock blue when I selected it as the accent color for my wedding three years ago. I think it is such a gorgeous jewel tone that looks great against nature’s lush green so I used it for a pop of color in this week’s patioscape.
I picked up the tablecloth at Home Goods and found these dreamy lightweight, silky wave napkins in peacock blue on One Kings Lane (from Divine Designs).
For the place setting, I layered cut crystal salad plates on candlewick glass dinner plates on top of ruffled edge silver chargers. The Waterford crystal stemware is from Think Twice Consignment (Gillette, NJ). The silver is Wallace Windsor Rose pattern (1948) and belonged to my husband’s grandmother. The napkin rings are Reed & Barton.
For the centerpiece, I used a set of clear glass candlestick pairs with hanging crystals from Home Sweet Home (Chatham, NJ).
In the center is a silverplate serving basket I found at Summit Antiques as well as a strand of green glass beads.

LOVE that color! LOVE IT!!! I am working on a client’s table design for a 2013 wedding, and I wish they had endless $$$ so that I could buy a ton of those napkins for the place settings! Those napkins are just gorgeous!!! The color goes beautifully with the table linen you selected, too! Gorgeous silver serving basket!
Those napkins are just the pop of color that makes the table really stand out. Love them.
Those chargers are very nice. Your table is very pretty .
WOW!! What a gorgeous table. So refreshing yet so elegant. Everything coordinates beautifully. Great job!
What a beautiful table! I love the napkins, they are perfect. Your outdoor setting is the perfect backdrop. Thanks for sharing.
Love the color! This tablescape is gorgeous and perfect for an outdoor setting. Your choice of crystal salad plates with the candlewick plates over the silver chargers keep it light and airy while lending an elegant touch. Adding in the Waterford, beautiful silver flatware, and the vintage silver basket are the finishing touches. Beautiful, beautiful!
