I pulled the dishes from the plate rack and put together a tablescape. I worked to keep some Asian flair going.
I added the table runner to break up all the white and it added a bit of elegance to the setting.
I wanted some fresh flowers but because of icy conditions and schools closed I didn't want to run to the store for another choice. I still had one more Amaryllis stalk in bloom so I decided it would be used. This red and white mix would not have been the first color I would have chosen for this tablescape but it ended up working out nicely. The vase was a find at T.J. Maxx that was meant for a seascape table I never put together. I decided it's texture was a good pickup to everything going on here. I rolled some paper toweling and placed it around the center to support the stalk.
The little white teapot holds just enough for two servings. The cobalt blue stemware came from Pier 1 in the clearance section a couple of years ago.
The blue bird salt and pepper shakers fit in here nicely too! Visit my previous post to see most everything here and details of where I got these.
I chose some bamboo flatware to pair up with the dragon salad plates. The green napkin ring holders have been with me a good while. Again I liked the texture for this setting.
I've been home a lot over the past week and a half due to a mild cold I came down with after taking care of my hubby who got it much worse. We've drank just about all the tea I had on hand and since neither of us is interested in cooking right now we're going to get soup, sesame chicken, fried rice and egg rolls from the Chinese takeout at the mall.
