Elephant Inspired Tablescape

This table is inspired by the cute elephant plates.  I love the colors.  We happen to have quite a few elephants in our home

I hung some elephant chimes from the chandelier for added interest.  They also have small cups for candles.
This table is full of color.  I using a turquoise tablecloth sets the mood, matching the blue in the plates. Even the napkins have elephants on them.  The napkin ring is a carved wooden elephant.

These small carved wooden elephants are from a HP co-worker.  He is from India.  We had invited him to dinner one evening, so he gifted us with these cute elephants. My husband is retired from HP.

The  centerpiece is Anthurium plant  - a gift from my parents for Mother's Day.

How can anyone resist these sweet elephants?

I borrowed these two rose colored lamps from our bedroom.  I like the fringe look for this tablescape.

The rattan chargers I have had for years.

Nomad Elephant plates and bowls are from World Market

Floral Elephant Napkins Set Of 4

A fun and yet exotic tablescape to enjoy.  I hope you all enjoyed a very special Mother's Day.  The brunch I prepared turned out lovely.  We even had leftovers.

  1. Linda, what a cute tablescape . Love the elephants . That tablecloth is so pretty . As always you do beautiful tablescapes . Hugs and blessings , Cindy

  2. Ooh I love this. I have always had a fondness for elephants. I had my eye on those dishes too and they look elegant on that pretty tablecloth. Those hand carved elephants you were gifted with are quite a keepsake. I like the added chimes on the chandelier and the turquoise elephant on the tea cart. The anthurium is beautiful- can you plant it there and keep it going?

  3. Love all of the bright colors in this setting! The tablecloth is lovely! "Elephant shoes" has always been a special phrase in our house (look in a mirror and mouth the phrase and you will see why) I still use it with my daughters!!

  4. A very lucky table:) One of our daughters collected them for yrs;)

  5. Yes, another unique and pretty tablescape, Linda! Love the colorful elephant theme!

  6. Just perfectly gorgeous! I would love to put my feet under a table decorated like that. I'd surely feel like a Queen. Hope all is well with you Linda.

  7. Hi Linda, what an incredible table setting. Love the elephant theme. World Market has come very unique treasures to make the best themes. Love those carved elephants and the aqua piece is a treasure! Always inspiring to visit. Hope your dad is doing better. Happy midweek. xo

  8. I am crazy over your exotic color elephants Linda, so festive and fun! We have a lot of elephants around our house too, Alabama elephants that is! 🏈 Beautiful table for summer!

  9. What a fun theme with those great elephant dishes and that gorgeous tablecloth. Pillows, napkin rings, and elephant accessories are darling especially the wooden carved ones. Even cute elephant graphics! The aqua elephant centerstage on your sideboard is so cute.

  10. Well, THAT'S fun, Linda! I love elephants. I just talked to my friend today and she just sold her late husband's elephant collection. He had several hundred of them and she sold the lot of them to a collector. I wish I had known she was going to do that because there is one I would have loved to have that he was going to give me when I visited next time. Just a small stone one..but...it is what it is, isnt' it?
    This is a fun setting, Linda. Hope you are having a great week. xo Diana
