Artichokes at the Table

Lately I have been doing tables. I am hanging onto the last bits of summer but have removed all the shell décor and packed it away for next year. So, I am in a kind of decorating limbo. SO, tables are  what I am doing!!! Here is the latest one! I found these artichoke salad plates at Home Goods and grabbed 2. LOVE them! I knew I had the other elements for a table setting so here it is! I first started with this green runner which is the other side of a bunny runner but hate how wrinkled it looks.
 So I switched to this bound burlap one and it looks so much better and really lightened up the whole table.
 I layered 2 napkins that mimic the shades of green in the plate and placemat.

 I have had these artichoke votive holders for years and they have gotten use on many tables! I love them!

 I placed them into this green leaf bowl that is almost the exact shape of the artichoke!
 The bowl is sitting on the base of a hurricane holder!!! It adds another bit of texture to the table. I am all about texture on a table!!!
 My clear bubble glasses came out again.

 I also have these faux spears of asparagus and just casually placed them on the plates.
 The dinner plate is a square shaped plate with a brown crackle edge.
 The green runner and...
 the burlap runner
 I made the centerpiece several years ago and it lands all over the house at different times.
 These candle holders are a favorite of mine. I stole them from Joe's man cave downstairs)
 My frog pitcher is being used for water. I have really upped my water consumption this summer!!!

 The centerpiece is 3 artichokes surrounded by some white filler flowers. 3 pieces of green bamboo are placed horizontally through the arrangement.

 I hope you liked my new table setting. It will serve us well for a couple of weeks.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be sharing at these parties:
XO, Pinky

  8. Popping in from BNOTP. That post-summer/pre-fall period is one of my favorite time of year to decorate--sort of a pause between seasons. I like to introduce ivory, light wood tones, and the green that you used. So I really like your artichoke plates and well, the whole tablescape. I must remember it come late summer. Thanks.

  9. Great table! LOVE your artichoke plates and you've accented them perfectly, from your burlap runner to your layered napkins. So much coordinated color and texture. Absolutely lovely. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  10. We are having artichokes and a salad tonight for dinner, and they will not be served with such perfect accessories as you have on your table. The candle holders are great!
