Tablescape Thursday...

Another Thursday..another table....

Photobucket

I found these napkins at a neighbor's yard sale..they are from Wm Sonoma, and are in great shape.

I got 8 for $2.00...When I saw the Lily on them, I knew I could use lilies from my garden for the centerpiece.

Photobucket

Hmmm..now what else can I use, I asked, scratching my head....

Photobucket

The napkins look tropical, so how about those leaf placemats from WmSonoma outlet...

Photobucket

Green straw like napkin rings, white square plate and bowl...green stems..

Photobucket

Photobucket

Monkey place cards holders..and since I am doing tropical, Tarzan and Jane were the guests..:)

Thanks so much for spending some time here!
BTW, I got a few emails saying they would be interested in doing another WHITE table theme..how about with a twist added.
white dishes, and ONE other color ( not counting silverware, silver accents, etc)
let me know if you are interested, and maybe the end of July? we could do it...??)

  7. I really think that it would be appropriate to wrap up the whole tropical shebang and send to me here in Florida. You do so many beautiful tablescapes and make so many lovely goodies that I think in the name of charity it would be fine to send it along (crumb loaf included) to me. I will pay the postage. No? Drats. It would look so cute on my lanai...
    Seriously Kathleen, it is really cute. I love the monkeys and those napkins and he way you have pulled it all together. Just lovely.

    Big Hug,
    Sue.

  17. What a lucky find those napkins were! They are fabulous, and the leaf placemats look great with them. Those monkey placecard holders are just the cutest things! (Was Tarzan able to keep his knees together, so nothing would show under that little skirt he wears-I hope not!). This is such a pretty tablescape. laurie
