Don't Be Envious!

Green--a color I loved as a child, but as an adult...not so much. Until I went to a professional to have my colors done. Guess what? Turns out green is MY color! So, I have been introducing green to my life...a little at a time. Like my blog!

I hope you like green, and I hope you enjoy this tablescape!







Green and cream--I just love it!






The large plate and bowl are from Ross.
The other dishes came from Goodwill, purchased
at different stores and at different times. I think
the checkerboard plate adds some whimsy!












To add to the whimsical vibe, musical frogs!









This topiary had a brown basket. I think
it looks much better painted ivory.





















Yes, these are my go-to Dollar Tree goblets...again.












I will be joining:

Green is (of course) so "right" this month! How exciting to grow into this color - "YOUR" color.

The tablescape is "perfect" in my book--green isn't dominating or aggressive in presence, but very much there at the same time...

Loving this green and cream! My Ross rarely has dishes as nice as these and certainly never has 4! The frogs add just the right touch too.

Love your green and cream table! Good call changing the basket on the topiary!

Denise said...

Boy! Your dishes are lovely. I mean, really lovely. And I'm not green with envy. No. Not me. I don't care at all. Keep your old, stupid dishes. See if I care.

Actually, I've never been a fan of green myself. But you have to embrace it in March.

How funny that the very color you thought you didn't care for so much turns out to be YOUR color!!! I love green...it always looks fresh and fun to me, and it comes in so many wonderful shades! I like to mix it with other colors, but my favorite color is probably cream like you have displayed here. It softens it so beautifully. Great mixing/matching with the dishes!!! I love it when people step out there and go a little nuts with that! It just makes the place setting so interesting!!! The napkin fold is really pretty, and it totally suits this tablescape. I agree...the cream basket on the topiary looks great! Isn't spray paint a wonderful invention? :-) And don't despair about using the green Dollar Tree goblets again. They are a great find and look good with so many designs...use 'em 'til you use 'em up, girl!!! I do that with SO many things. My husband often wonders out loud (because he thinks he's funny) why I have so many dishes and stuff when I tend to use so many of the same things over and over. First, NOT his business! Second, NOT his business!!! :-) Have a great weekend!!!

I love the color green and am trying to incorporate it into my home decorating! This is such a pretty table - love the checked bowls! And that frog is a fun surprise!

Love it! Your dishes are so pretty and the musical frogs are too cute.

Green is certainly the color for March, it is popping up all over blogland.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Such a pretty tablescape! The green and cream look great with your beautiful wood table and lovely home as a backdrop. I love those bowls, and I wish I could find those green wine glasses.

That is truly a perfect tablescape.

It is STUNNING, actually I love every element.

WELL DONE!

Hi lovely lady.
This has to be my favorite table setting that you've done since I started following you! It's really festive and beautiful! I also love your Gorgeous wood table. Thanks you much for your sweet comments on my new tablescape. I hope you have a wonderful week with your sweet family.

The green and cream dishes are so special, and I adore the frogs. The ivy, meandering down the table, pulls the eye right along. Good design choice! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

This is such a pretty table! I think the green looks lovely and I love the whimsical musical frogs.

Very pretty! I really like the mix of plates you used--it makes the table very interesting. Glad I ran across your post; I hope you'll visit back.

The green checkerboard plates are a knockout. Green is my favorite color. The tablescape is delightful!

As Scarlett O'Hara (an Irish lass, indeed!) said, "I am pea-green with envy". Beautiful table! Green is somewhat of a neutral to me. It looks good with almost everthing. It certainly looked good on Scarlett, when she wore the green velvet "curtain" dress!

I love those dishes. Green is such a soothing color and I have a lot of it in my dining room and front room. You can mix it with almost any other color it is like a neutral.

I like your combination of colors too. Your table is lovely. That topiary is wonderful. Pat

Ivy and Elephants said...

What a gorgeous table you've set!
So perfect for spring. The little frog is the cutest! Thanks so much for linking with us.

A very pretty table!

Bonnie said...

Love your green and cream! I like your reticulated cream bowls and you are right the checked plate adds that touch of whimsy. The napkin folds add that elegant feel. I think your Dollar Tree glasses look fab! Our store does not have any color glasses!

Great tablescape.

The pierced bowls and the checkerboard plates are marvelous! Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.
