~~~ A Tropical Luncheon~~~

HI everyone! It is so good to be back. I thought I would set a table to show you our everyday dishes that we use during the cold dreary days of winter. I LONG for tropical skies and surroundings during the winter so surround myself with items that bring that feeling to mind. I got these new rattan chargers on our recent trip to Fl. My sister took me to a World Market near her. We used to have a World Market up here  but they closed???? I love that store!  So I grabbed these cahrgers when I saw them. I decided to use them on this table because I love the dark contrast with the lighter hues of the table setting. As you can see the dinner plate has tropical leaves around the edge and the salad plates have 4 different palm trees depicted.
 I used my centerpiece that is so natural looking. And the tiki S and P stay on the table all the time.
 I found the palm tree juice glasses at CTS a few years ago. Love their shape and size. They are hand painted though and have to be hand washed.
 At first I used a tan napkin paired with the leaf one but liked the crisp white one to go better with the tablecloth. The leaves on the napkin closely resemble the leaves on the edge of the dinner plate.
 They are gathered simply with a green napkin ring. The different SHADES of green blend nicely, I think.
 Here is another of the salad plates.
 I love this little votive holder. I found it years ago before tablescaping, so only have ONE:( So, the guest of honor will get it at their place:):)
 Another salad plate. This is the banana palm.

 I also have this pretty platter. I placed it on a palte holder for you to see.

 Here are some details of the tablecloth. I love the bamboo and the palm trees.

 Maybe someday I will get to live in a warm climate.....but I doubt it. So, I just dream.

  6. What a beautiful tablescape. I love palm tress, so your theme really appeals to me. Gorgeous job, I love it! xo ~Liz

  7. Pinky, this table has me singing Hawaiian songs and wanting to put on Hawaiian clothes and head over there - for the rest of the year - oh who am I kidding - the rest of my life!

    Everything is so elegant and lovely and you have so many wonderful little accessories. Take me away!

    I hope you have a wonderful week with your family.

  9. Love it Pinky! The whole table is so attractive you could leave it set up like this all the time!
    That's a great tablecloth and those new chargers are perfect! Love the dishes and the Tiki S & P's!
    I would love to shop at a World Market, I'm always hearing and reading good things that come out of there!

  10. I'm with you, Pinky. I am looonging for warm weather! Your terrific tablescape is just what I need to get my imagination flowing - warm sun, warm breezes, sand between my toes...ahhhhh.

  11. I so love that tropical flair!! Beautiful table Pinky..Have a wonderful "warm" day...

  12. I love the dishes! It makes the room feel like you're on vacation in beach house.
    And I want to thank you for your kind, encouraging comment about the seasons in our lives. I do feel better's been warm and sunny.


  13. Pinky,
    Gorgeous hues of lime green, brown and whites! Tropical,indeed! The attention to detail is exquisite, dear friend!

  14. Yes, this feels like the tropics..... a beautiful table!!
    I love the color of the glasses.

  15. Wow gorgeous so colorful .I love this post

  16. Very tropical tablescape! Here in New York, I've never even thought of having tropical dinnerware but it would be wonderful during winter. I L.O.V.E. those placemats. I saw some similar in Pottery Barn, but the price was pretty up there since I wanted 12 of them. Welcome back!

  17. I wish it were a tropical day here to go with the tropical table you have so wonderfully created. You always do such a nice job!

  18. Hi Pinky, Thank you for the recommending I turn off my word verification. I figured out how to do it!! Your table is lovely and I love the chargers. I'm going to have to visit our World Market when I go back to town.

  19. So creative...and yes, the tropics are calling me too! Love the glasses ~ such a perfect color.


  20. *sigh* Your lovely tropical table brings back so many fond memories of our years living in FL. We had a triple pigmy palm tree in the front yard that was just beautiful!

    I especially like the linens you used, Pinky. I'm hoping to get to our local World Market on Wed. & I will think of you while I shop.

    Hope you feel better fast, Honey. Go rest!


  21. Such a pretty and tropical setting! I moved to my beach house permanently, so I relate to palm trees, for sure.

  22. Very tropical indeed! I love those chargers, I put together an on line order from World Market with Alma, and she got those , so I have seen them in person. They are really nice.
    If you buy on line link through and you get a 3% rebate for WM. It all adds up! You could order with Y and save the shipping! :)

  23. You know Pinky, I have those same plates. I also have bamboo flatware, but darker. I should do a tropical tablescape sometime. It's perfect for this time of year, when we need some sushine.

  24. Hi, Pinky. I love anything palm, so I really enjoyed your table. The tablecloth is beautiful! I have palm tree glasses and pitcher--mine are etched--that's how much I like them. Great table, promising warm weather, beach and palm trees. :)

  25. Ah, I guess summer is not that far away - at least in blog land. It's wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays!

  26. What a fun table! I love palms!

  27. Hi, Pinky! I think you did for this table the way a lot of us are feeling right now...come on, warm weather!!!!! I shouldn't complain, though. It has been relatively nice here. Expecting 70s for tomorrow. I love all the different palms on the salad plates. It really gives each person a chance to feel a little bit special! I hope summer warmth heads your way soon! Have a great week!


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
