A Sea of Blue Green with Orange Table


I set this table up in our Breakfast room.  The jewel colors of teal, turquoise is so rich, I wanted to add a pop of color.  It is amazing how well these colors go together.

I started with our rattan round chargers.  I bought them years ago at Crate & Barrel.  An orange charger plate goes on top. Notice the blue peacocks?  I must love peacocks....LOL  I find myself creating different looks with peacocks in mind.

The  blue dinner plates I found at Home Goods  last year.  They have the orange colored blossoms, so they look pretty with the peacock salad plates and bowls.
I found the bright orange lanterns at Ross, along with the orange candles and turquoise candle holders.

A night time shot.  I am having a heck of a time taking great pictures...

There again, I am using turquoise pillow cases on  my red chairs. Orange napkins keep with the theme.

Happy Wednesday....  I shall be joining the following parties:

What's It Wednesday @ Ivy and Elephants
Thursday"s Favorite Things @ Katherine's Corner
Home Sweet Home @ The Charm Of The Home

Add A Pretty Site Map to Blogger

This is a cool sitemap for your blog. It's  an index with all of your posts .This is highly recommended for Blogger users.  It helps them to navigate easily around your blog.  I know we offer  navigations menus, in addition to the search button.  However this lists all of your posts together on one page.
Below is an example of what you will see...Of course this is mine, so it will shows your posts.

If someone wants to see all of your posts, they are listed here alphabetically.  An index page.
Whenever you write a new post with labels, they are added to this.  There is no need for you to do anything else.

To achieve this:  Create a new page and name it Sitemap or Site Map

Click the HTML portion of the page and paste this code below in there.

 <link href="https://googledrive.com/host/0B-koCsA6FhQKTEwtQ0hxVmVLOFk" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link>
<script src="https://googledrive.com/host/0B-koCsA6FhQKMTFvYnFCZmxVZFk/" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://www.testblog.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=9999&amp;alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=loadtoc">

Look at my example.

Change www.testblog.com  to your blog's address.

Click publish.  View your page to see what it looks like.
If you are using pages for your blog navigation, then you can add the sitemap to your menu.
 Open your page widget near your Header.

 This is your pagelist with the added Sitemap.

Enjoy!  I have been busy assisting people with their blogs.  I am planning another tablescape soon with Turquoise and orange.   We have been quite lucky with temps near 70.   Our plum trees are in bloom and the daffodils are also in bloom.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I want to wish everyone a very happy Valentine's Day.
We are having another dinner party tonight, so I have been cooking all day...

For fun, I made these Rice Krispie lips, dipped in chocolate and then sprinkled with  edible red glitter and red mini lips.

I also made caramel, covered heart candies.

For tonight's dessert, I whipped up dreamy, fluffy Chocolate Mousse.

The table is all set.  This time I added some silver elements.  Silver hearts with a rose and baby's breath and a centerpiece of red and white flowers.
Each lady receives a French dark chocolate red heart candy in the little gift box and the  gentlemen get a small box of chocolates.

I decorated our Baker's rack to go with tonight's theme.

Cheers...here's to a romantic evening with your loved ones.

Ooh La La!


Valentine is almost here, so we are partying once again.  We have another dinner party planned for Valentine's evening.  This table is for fun!  The dinner on Valentine is for 8 people.
I will also be using the same French inspired dishes, Les Etoiles , which means, The Stars.

I am using black, white and of course a daring red to liven things up.  Romance is definitely a red color. I started with the gorgeous red tablecloth I bought from Linen Table Cloth.
Since the plates are square, I am using red square charger plates.  The dishes are French themed.

An added little gift with red, black and white.

Adding more ambiance with the tall mercury candle holders and a vase with the white rose ball
I found these at Home Goods..

Black and white striped napkins with the black and white MacKenzie-Childs napkin rings, Liz  from Infuse With Liz gave me.

Cream flatware...I may have to add black to my collection.  Look out hubby! It's a good thing, we have lots of added storage in the new remodeled laundry room.

I love dressing the chandelier.

I tied my red sashes to the back of each chair.

Have you any plans for Valentine's day?  Please share.

I am linking up with the following parties:
Table it @ Rustic-Refined
Amaze me Monday @ Dwelling- The Heart of Your Home
Make It Pretty Monday @ The Dedicated House

Divalicious Pink & Black Tablescape


What woman  doesn't like being a  Diva now and then?  This table is created for lady friends who wanted to feel like a Diva!  Hot pink and black are dramatic colors and so fun!  Throw in some leopard and cheetah and we are there. Definitely looking forward to this fun day!

I decided to use our breakfast room for this fun table, since it has a  round table.  I am using different chairs than usual and for a switch up, I turned them around.  Adding leopard print and hot pink glitter ribbon.  Each setting has a Divalicious gift bag.

The tall glass vases are filled with water.  I added a few drops of red food coloring to make them pink.  I topped them off with a round rose ball.

Hot pink and black striped napkins really tie in with the table theme.  They sit elegantly in our black Zgallerie glasses we bought last year.

Small black picture frames are used as place settings.
Black and white patterned chargers  were layered with black dinner plates,  and the girl's dessert plates on top. Pink champagne glasses.  Gotta have the bubbly!

The centerpiece is beautiful pink, fuchsia, and white roses.  They are sitting in a glass vase, I covered with a toddler's lacy, layered skirt.  They fit perfectly around so many of my glass vases.  Drama!

The gift bags are different with pink and black paper.

Perfect for a girlie Valentine Day.

We girls love chocolate, love to shop, find great sales, be pampered and enjoy being a Diva!
Thanks for visiting my Divalicious table setting.
