I set up my tablescape to go with my hydrangeas so I centered my attention to draw on the natural colors found in them.
I posted about them "here" just yesterday.
Gold, green, ivory and purple
The purple stemware pulls on a color from the dishes.
You don't notice the purple without looking for it very closely.
I used the green bowls that match the dishes on my plate rack that I recently posted about as seen "here".
These golden leaf embroidered placemats offered a good base of autumnal tone and the napkins shared the same coloring. I tried green napkins but it became too dominant. The rattan chargers were chosen to keep the look casual. The green bowl offered just enough color to work with the dishes and the hydrangeas. The napkin rings were selected to add to the leaf and floral design and I liked that their muted tone didn't compete with anything.
This picture captures the overall colors the best.
Chasing the sun for pictures can be challenging! There are no do-overs once it's moved away! Currently the sun hits my kitchen area around 9 a.m.! I like how it highlights things I just wish it wasn't so early!
