Pretty Artichoke Tablescape


Lovely gladiolas fill the crystal vase to add some  ambiance and height to the table.

Green flatware from Horchow complete the green theme with the dollar store green goblets.

I am using the cabbage leaves placemat,  because they seem to go perfectly with the  green and white theme.

I bought the cute special artichokes plates years ago at Sur La Table.  Perfect for artichoke with their little cup for sauce.
I found these beautiful white artichokes at Ross, while shopping with my Mom.

My husband loves artichokes.  He is the one who cooks them and makes his secret sauce.
They are a good source of vitamins. The chart below shows perfectly the nutrients.



When left in the  garden, they will bloom into beautiful purple flowers.
I hope you have a great weekend.  It's pool time, so I am down by the pool relaxing.

  4. What a pretty tablescape, Linda! The placemats are perfect and I remember those artichoke plates from Sur La Table. I'll bet you get great artichokes out in CA! I just dip mine in melted butter, but I'll bet your hubby's secret sauce is wonderful!

    1. Mayonnaise, lemon juice, Tabasco, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Don't tell anyone, it's a secret.

  5. Hi Linda, what a beautiful table setting with an artichoke theme. I love your pretty white set from Ross. I miss the Ross we had close by. It closed and was replaced with Bed Bath and Beyond. Just not the same!! Your cabbage plates are beautiful too and I love the little side bowl.
    The secret sauce sounds so good.
    Enjoy your pool time. I am ready to hang out at ours too ~ but with all the rain we've had, the season is behind. The flowers love it though! Have a nice weekend. xo

    1. Thank you Ellen. I would love to see your artichoke plates. Some people do not like artichokes or don't know how to eat them.

  7. Enjoy your lovely pool time, I know how relaxing that can be.
    I am always inspired by your table settings Linda, and this may be on of my favorites:) Although I think I may think that every time!
    I am fond of the artichokes.
    Have a lovely Saturday and I did get my email taken care of.
    Thank you again my dear California Friend.

    1. Jemma, yes, pool time is relaxing. I take the dogs down to the pool and manage to relax. It's been hot, so the pool has heated up. Artichokes are not for everyone. We do enjoy them, especially with the sauce. So glad to hear you got your email taken care of. Have a fabulous Sunday. XO

  8. Pretty table. We love artichokes here. I've never seen one bloom. Do you grow your own?
    Enjoy your pool side time. It's raining cats and dogs here. '-)

  10. Lovely and creative as usual! Glads are My Rare One's favourite flowers. I always try to buy her a couple of big bunches when they're in season. A single stalk looks gorgeous all by itself in a Japanese ikebana dish as well.

  11. The most scrumptious colors are in your tablesetting! I'm ashamed to admit that I've never eaten fresh artichoke. But I would if someone cooked them for me!
