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

  4. LOL- Great minds think alike. I use pillow cases for chair covers, too. lol
    I LOVE those peacock dishes. Our school colors were blue and orange. They are right across from each other on the color wheel so play off each other nicely. You always set such a fun table. lol
    I like your header, too- xo Diana

  14. Oh wow, that is so colorful! I love the two together. I can't believe those are pillowcases!! I was wondering where you got the fabulous chair covers. What a clever idea and one that would be easy to sew too, it looks so rich to have the chair covers. The peacock plates are beautiful. I have been tempted several times to get peacock plates. I really am overflowing with plates. I got some new things this week and now have to move things around to find a place to store them!
