Oriental Tablescape

I thought it was time to share another tablescape. We have had these dishes for a long time.
I added different elements to the table to enhance the setting.  I found the awesome Buddha at Home Goods.
Each setting has it's very own Buddha silver candle holder. I bought them from Zgallerie.

The dishes are from World market.

This picture shows the green accent lighting my husband recently installed.  The bulbs are Phillips Hue. He also added the wemo switch and the app.  We can control the lighting from our ipads.

Isn't this the cutest?  It hides the wine bottle.

Two silver Buddhas from Ross. They were marked down for clearance.

I wanted to add the paper lanterns for some accent lighting.  World Market has some cool little battery lights you can hang inside.

I bought the two figures at Pottery World years ago.  They are fun and add some whimsy.
The large sculpture we bought at California Backyard.

Dramatic lighting for a dinner party.  We can add some oriental music with Alexa, our Amazon Echo.
The best part about having Phillip hue light bulbs  with wemo switches, we just tell Alexa to turn on Dining or fireplace lights, or any other lights we have connected.

We got a surprise visit from my son and his girlfriend. it was great see them and also hang out by the pool. We treated them to the Studio Movie Grill.  A whole different experience.  We saw Antman....

I hope you all have a great week ahead.
