A Green, Black and White table for Dinner Group

I posted this table this time last year and since we are so busy with preparations for Joe's hip replacement surgery, I decided to repost it. I haven't had time to do any new posts altely! I hope you enjoy this table, I LOVE this combination of black and white with green. It is definitely one of my favorites!!!! So here is the post as it appeared l;ast year!
We hosted our dinner group on Sat. night. I made a fresh arrangement for our centerpiece and set the table with one of my favorite color combos.I didn't use a tablecloth, preferring to see the beautiful wood of the table and have a liighter sense for summer. I placed a green and white placemat, then a round black and white placemat, a square white dish, a green dinner plate and a black and white scrolled dessert plate for my stack.
 My black handled flateware was perfect.
 I gathered some EARLY limelight hydrangeas, fresh grapes, limes, apples and lettuce.

 A couple of pears were also added.

 We were missing one couple but had a fun night.
 We ate our hors d'oevres out on the patio then came in for dinner.

 I hadn't made a fresh arrangement in quite awhile but while at the gracery store had a light bulb moment:)

 Wish you all could have been here, it was a lovely night.

I am partying with:

  1. I wish I had kept some of my lime and black and white out!! Love this!
    Something to look forward to when we are settled.

  2. Awesome color combo....really pops Pinky. The centerpiece is striking with the fruits added and greenery. You certainly can create some beautiful arrangements. The table looks divine and I would be delighted to sit here. Happy Tuesday. xo

  3. Oh well, I wanted to say your table was awesome too, like Linda... now, I'll say it's fabulous!
    You have inspired me as I too have a black and white china, but I adore the green addition to soften the entire setting with the placemats and the gorgeous centerpiece, Pinky. The flatware is perfect!

  4. Thanks girls! It was fun putting this centerpiece together. It was a fun night.

  5. So attractive Pinky! You had me at black and white! I love the way you added greenery wreaths at the candle bases and added a shell~

  6. Great color combo and your arrangement is just beautiful! I know that your friends had a great time!

  7. Pinky, Your green, black & white table is one of my favorite combinations! LOVE your table centerpiece arrangement with the hydrangea, fruit and lettuce!

  8. Love the color combo, such a stylish and dramatic flair! The centerpiece is a stroke of genius, too.

  9. Beautiful colors and I love all the natural elements. What a treat for your guests.

  10. Pinky,
    This is my all time favorite color scheme for tablescaping, dear friend!!! Yours is elegantly done, yet has a casualness about it, as well!
    Love, LOVE, L O V E the fresh fruit, hydrangea and lettuce arrangement!!! Very clever, indeed. . .and beautiful!!!
    I know your guest were honored to be at such a lovely setting and enjoyed their time in your stunning home!

  11. What a lovely table, Pinky! Black, white and green is one of my fave color combos. Love the centerpiece that you put together too!

  12. Well, thank goodness for your "light bulb moment"! All's well that ends well, and this was terrific from start to finish! I love the color and texture of those limelight hydrangeas! You did a fantastic job on that centerpiece!!!

    The design on your top plates is top drawer!!! Very swank! It works really well with the napkins and placemats. The whole color combination is really neat!

    I'm sorry the one couple missed out on this because they would have really enjoyed it! So glad all the others were able to be there to take it all in!

  13. So crisp and striking!! Fabulous table setting. When am I coming over for dinner? :)

  14. What a beautiful table!! I LOVE your color combination! This shade of green is my absolute favorite and it looks extra stunning next to black and white. There is not one detail that you could change to make this table more attractive: your centerpiece, dish stack, flatware: everything sings, "Welcome to my lovely home and table!" Bravo! And thanks for sharing. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
