A Touch of Provencal

Continuing on with the late summer sunny golden tones...
I've gathered flowers from the garden in the morning...

The Black Eyed Susans are in full bloom around here right now.  I chose a few cuttings from my Limelight Hydrangea for an accent and used my sunflower pitcher...

 I laid the napkins out on an angle under the plate to get the most out of the design from them.  They ended up working well with the denim overlay and the fleur de-lis plates.  This is the fun part about tablescaping.  Mixing things together and being surprised at what works!

I layered two chargers for texture and color.  I wanted the texture of the rattan but it was absorbed by the blue so I lifted it with the white charger.    

These chicken plates came from One King's Lane a while back and the same with the fleur de-lis coffee mugs.  I've used them several times.  The rooster glasses came from Pfaltzgraff a few years ago.

We're experiencing rain and thunder today and it's kind of dark.  I had to put the camera on manual and use the tripod to get these pictures taken.  This causes the outside to look almost burned out but that's how it works.  I'm just glad to get what I got!

FYI- this is using the automatic setting on the camera.  Learning how to use a manual setting can be a big help. 

I didn't put out wine glasses because I thought of this as being a brunch.  
I prefer wine with dinner or afterwards. 
 Au revoir my friends!

  7. It's beautiful, Liz. I love the surprises that happen while setting tables, too. Smart idea using the two chargers together. The white really does separate the rattan and blue. I love your fleur-de-lis plates, and I'm drooling over the chicken (or rooster?) plates. I've never seen glasses with roosters, but your are adorable! You have some really fun dishware to mix and match. Your napkins and table cloth are the perfect foundation for it all.
