The blossoms are all beginning to fade here at
Purple Chocolat Home
so I had to quickly do an
before they were all gone.
I bought these gorgeous salad plates
and bowls at
early in the spring and couldn't
miss a chance to include them out in
the garden for a tablescape.
They are amazing in their detail and shape.
The irridescence is just stunning and
I love the silvered edges.
This is the salad plate. It is gorgeous
all by itself.
But top it with the bowl and it is two
more layers of ruffled petals!
I tried a hydrangea bossom in the
bowl, but it covered everything up
Wait, they didn't just have pink plates
and bowls, they also had them in
lavendar (and pale teal).
I felt lucky to get enough.
Of course I couldn't decide which color
so I got them in all three, although I
only found one teal one.
I decided to use these adorable miniature
forks and spoons with their curved leaf handles.
They are so cute tucked into the
beaded napkin ring.
Here is a closeup of the handles.
I think they are fantastic.
Green bubble glass goblets
go nicely with the garden theme.
The flower plates and bowls
sit atop my favorite wooden chargers
that seem perfect whatever the
Hydrangeas don't winter over here
and they have pretty much lost
their color by now but
we sure enjoyed them all season.
The hydrangea on the right still has specks
of pink. I will definitely save the dried
blossoms for future use.
It is always sad to see summer end.
It is definitely my favorite season
and I haven't had enough time to
savor it this year.
I haven't done a tablescape all summer but managed
to do at least one post a week and felt badly
but after getting back out reading your blogs
I realized many of you had busy, busy
summers also and hadn't done much
It feels great to do a tablescape again.
Ahhh, so sad to see it all end, but
what a beautiful ending!
I hope you enjoyed your visit to
Purple Chocolat Home today.
I have missed you all and hope to
have a lot more time now.
