Floral Fantasy Tablescape

I don’t want to jinx it, but my garden has never looked better! Even with the plant loss from our crazy winter, this rainy June has rejuvenated all of my sad plants. It seemed a perfect week to feature a flowery tablescape.

GotMyReservations Floral Fantasy  Intro

It all started with my inspiration piece –a Nippon Rose pattern vase. I traced its history here. The greens of the piece combined with the yellow and red roses reminded me of English country gardens, overflowing with colorful flowers. The base of the centerpiece is a distressed green wooden tray found on the sale rack at Joann Fabrics. I created a floral centerpiece with faux flowers picking up the yellow, red, lavender, and greens in the vase and the linens.

The table is set for a small party of just four people. When I pulled out all of my Nippon porcelain pieces, I was surprised by how much gold trim there is in the decorative paint.

The light green needed some depth of color to complement the dark wood table, so I layered a green placemat, a straw placemat, a white wood charger, a white stoneware service plate, a leafy dessert plate, matching linen napkin, and a stoneware bowl.

Nippon salt and pepper shakers sit on a Nippon plate on each side of the table.

The table setting was crying out for more gold, so my Murano amber goblets found their way onto the table. I don’t usually use these in the summer, but their warm color balances all the bright colors in the flowers.GotMyReservations Floral Fantasy Murano Goblets GotMyReservations Floral Fantasy 1Almost everyone has family heirlooms that can inspire a beautiful tablescape, but if you don’t, new-to-you inspiration pieces are as close as your local Goodwill store. I really appreciate your kind comments and your love for my family stories. I’m linking up today with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

  1. Jennie, what a pretty table your Nippon Rose vase inspired! I love all the greens you included, especially that gorgeous teapot. The tall candles were the perfect touch!

  2. Very pretty! The flowers set a nice tone and I like how you layered the colors with the dishes, chargers placemats and napkins. Your Nippon Rose vase is a treasure! The candle holders look great- they added a nice texture. Love the Murano goblets!

  3. You’ve created such a beautiful table with all your treasures! I love the different patterns you’ve mixed, yet mostly floral. The greens and golds work wonderfully as neutrals against the colors in the flowers. It’s lovely and elegant!

  4. I can see why you were inspired by that vase. It is gorgeous! You have pulled this together beautifully. That gorgeous green teapot took my breath, and your linens are perfect with this table. Have a good weekend. laurie

  5. What a beautiful, beautiful setting you’ve created, Jennie! I don’t know much about china and crystal and flatware patterns. I’m kind of a dummy when it comes to that since my shallow heart only goes for what’s visually appealing. I wish I could step up my game in that department. It would be nice to know a little history that goes along with pieces! I have a number of family heirlooms that I can’t identify for one reason or another. I need to rectify that soon, especially since many of them are surely approaching the true antique age of 100.

    I love the softer colors against the deep color of the table. They really stand out nicely and give us a great show! I love that you used the Murano amber stemware, too. It really is beautiful for this setting! While it’s not a tone we might have considered, it is PERFECT!

  6. The Nippon vase was the perfect inspiration for this lovely table Jennie. The flowers and the beautiful dark wood of your table are perfect companions to complement the vase. Everything looks perfect!
