Poppies and Turquoise

I was playing around with some of my dishes....I have these blue plates with orange flowers, so I thought I would pair the two colors.  I layered Turquoise chargers with orange chargers.  I then added my blue  dinner plates with my orange and blue salad plates.  The bowls are from another set, so this is definitely mix and match. I set the blue chargers at an angle for added interest.  I then added turquoise glasses.
The table runner is a bright orange, rust color.  I am using my pretty turquoise napkins from Z Gallerie.

 For more  punch, I added orange water beads plus Grasses and poppies.

 I added orange tulle to the back of the chairs just for added cuteness...is that a word? 

 I started out with this orange vase.  I love the shape of it.
I bought it from Home Goods.

               Sweet earth, we have this.
               Tread so kindly upon it.
               Meant for forever.

Happy earth day and always remember, we all live here. Our one home. Together.

I couldn't resist putting in a picture of Jacob....He has orange hair, (actually red), it looks orange. with blue eyes and he  is wearing a blue shirt.
I hope you enjoy this post.  Enjoy the rest of your week!

  1. Beautiful! I love how everything on your table pops with your gorgeous ceiling. You have a cutie pie.


  2. Orange is one of my favorite colors, and it really pops with turquoise. Happens to be the team colors of my favorite baseball team, too. Jacob is adorable and he definitely matches the color theme of this post! xo

  3. I LOVE 'cuteness' and your little Jacob has TONS of it!!

  4. What a beautiful table and I love your colors! Your centerpiece is lovely! But, that little one at the end has stolen the show.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Oh little Jacob is perfect - I love his colors! My daughter is a red head too.

    You know when you think about blue and orange - it's hard for me to imagine a beautiful table scape. However when I see it - I think it is fabulous! I loved it.


  6. Beautiful tablescape. I love the colors together and the pattern is so pretty. Your centerpiece is gorgeous! I enjoyed your tablescape but the best part of this post is that adorable red head, Jacob!

  7. Fabulous color combo, Linda...lots of vibrant excitement to this tablescape! I ♥♥♥ it, but then I ♥ anything turquoise! Matches my eyes.

    That picture of Jacob is priceless...what a cutie pie!! You should frame that one. It would make anyone smile right back at him for years to come. They grow up sooo fast!

    Thanks for inviting us to enjoy your table & lovely room & grandson.


  8. forgot to say your gorgeous vase reminds me of the art glass of Dale Chihuly!! Spectacular!!

  9. Beautiful job Linda! Love these colors mixed together! Your vase turned out beautiful! Jacob is adorable- that's quite a head of beautiful red hair.

  10. It seems that orange & blue are the new green & mauve of 15 years ago. It's time for a change and orange is one of my very favorite colors. Beautiful job!! And, we have lots of red-heads in our family so they are very special to us. Your little Jacob looks like he could belong to our clan!!

  11. What a beautiful tablescape. I love those colors!

  12. Hi Linda!

    What a colorful table you have created, very festive and full of energy. Little Jacob must have been your inspiration!

  13. Hmmm - do you think Jacob would mind sitting under a cloche for a centrepiece? His colouring is perfect! ~ Maureen

  14. You know the colors actually worked together. Everything looks lovely and Jacob does match. :)

  15. Well I would have never thought of those colors together, but I love them. Your table is just so festive looking. Jacob is the perfect added touch of decoration.

  16. The dinner plates are among the prettiest I have ever seen. This is truly a stunning tablescape..WOW! I love the poppy and turquoise together. This post has made me smile!


  17. Wow, so pretty, Linda! That vase is beautiful. Love the dishes too. Jacob is ADORABLE!!!! And, is "cuteness" a word? YES!!! It is what describes YOU!!!!! XO, Pinky

  23. Linda,
    You really choose the colours that I love. So pretty.

    Your kitchen is a haven. Very romantic. I love your touch.


  24. That little picture at the end is just too cute. It measures a 10 on the "cuteness" barometer. I'm a sucker for poppies and I love orange paired with shades of blue, so this was a table I HAD to see!!!!! That orange vase is gorgeous! I love how it's so shapely. Everything is really poppin' and works great together. Woo hoo!!!! Great job! Have a good weekend!

  25. That would be "depressed" -- this auto correct on the spelling is making me crazy!

    What I said was it would be impossible to be DEPRESSED at that table, and the adorable child does match the color scheme.

  26. Oh what fun. This color combination is great. That little Jacob is quite a cutie, too!

  27. Great color combination. Jacob is too cute!
