Black, White and a Touch of Green at the Table

I decided I wanted to do a transitional table, you know this time at the end of summer but not quite fall yet. It is so blazing hot here that I am just PLANNING Fall, no changes yet. But at the table I did make some changes. I started with a black and white checked runner. I wanted to make it light and airy but with a NOD to Fall. Apples always say Fall to me:) I used a black and striped placemat and a sea grass round mat along with my white chargers and black and white flowered dinner plate and black and white salad plate. I topped all that with a green apple surrounded by a green, leafy ring.
 To compliment the runner I mixed it up a bit by gathering 2 napkins together in a simple, white ceramic napkin ring.
 My limelight hydrangeas are perfect for a simple but beautiful centerpiece.
 They are all different colors right now. Some are still  green and some...
 are white and some
 are beginning to show some of that beautiful pinkish color.
 I added 2 green candles surrounded by a green leafy ring for added texture.
 My clear bubble goblets will hold our beverage.

 The hydrangeas are in one of my white pitchers that is acting as a vase.
 To add some more texture I filled my white gravy boat with some seed balls and other pods.

 A single apple sits in a green leafy ring on top of the dish stack.

And mixing my flatware makes the table fun.

 This is the salad plate
 and this the dinner plate. They can be mixed together many different ways.

 Yes, there is also a small antler in this mix:)
 I really like the edge of the gravy boat and the leafy vine on the side.

 The rattan S and P tie in with the sea grass placemats.
Thanks for your visit! Are you dreaming and planning for Fall yet? I hope you are surviving this awful heat. I also feel SO bad for the people of Louisiana whose homes, neighborhoods and sometimes lives have been ruined.
 XO, Pinky

  1. This color palette feels so earthy and natural. So pretty!

  2. Lovely table Pinky with black, white and the added green. The hydrangeas are gorgeous. Very cute runner and placemats as well. A natural looking tablescape with fresh apples is always welcome. xo

  3. I'm in love with those black and white plates, and the checked placements are fabulous too!

    I'm not thinking about autumn just yet. You're gonna have to take me kicking and screaming into Fall!

    (Check your email).


  4. Love this color palette, Pinky! This is a perfect transitional tablescape. All of your accents are so warm and bring such a welcoming touch to the table.

  5. Gorgeous table and your limelights and fabulous!!!....I so love the color combination of the black, white and green!...You have such beautiful dishes!

    1. Thabk you so much. I have taken pictures of my "dish room" that I want to share SOON:):)

  6. Lovely lovely table!!! I love how you mixed the different colors and designs to make a very cohesive setting. Reading your post and admiring your pictures are making me yearn for autumn! BTW...the S&P shakers are adorable!!!

  7. Great colour combo and love how you mixed the patterns. The apple in the greenery looks terrific and you dish stack is perfectly matched to your table linens. I used a B&W checked tablecloth for a summer t'scape this week.

  8. Very beautiful tablescape. You totally nailed black and white theme. Black and white plates are awesome and surprising element to the whole tablescape. What I loved most are hydrangeas and candle. Delightful presentation!

  9. I absolutely love this color palette! It's both fresh and sophisticated. So gorgeous!

  10. Pinky,
    Love this Timeless Classic black and white tablescape, dear friend!
    Your hydrangea are absolutely gorgeous!
    Yes! I'm ready for Autumn!

  11. Such a lovely table, I always love black and white! Thanks for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!

  12. Love it. I love to use black and white...then an accent color. Gorgeous table!

  13. Pinky, I love your beautiful table! I love the colors you chose. The black and white with the green touches is simply stunning! The hydrangea centerpiece is gorgeous and the greenery with the apple placed upon the plate stack is the perfect touch! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!

  14. Pinky, love the black and white with your beautiful limelights...a gorgeous table for any season! Happy weekend, Pam @ Everyday Living

  15. Pinky, tried to leave a comment earlier, but was having issues. Think I have it working now. '-)
    Love the black and white combo especially with the green. Reminds me of my CC bag with green handles and details.

  16. Love the black and white Pinky. Beautiful table, I like how the place setting allow you to face the window and enjoy the view while you eat. Gorgeous limelight hydrangea. I just planted a Little Lime in my yard. I'm posting it tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

  17. I love this color combo - green is my fav color!! Something that really caught my eye is how you set the long table - I love how you planned it side by side, rather than across from each other - I never think to do that and certainly have to remember it!! Great idea! Your hydrangeas are so pretty - is there a trick to keep them from wilting once cut?

    1. Well, I change the water every other day and then after about a week or 10 days I purposely let them dry. I like to have dried flowers for decorating in the fall:):)

  18. So beautiful and refreshing! It has been hot here in North Carolina too, so much so, that fall seems far away. Today we are having a respite from the heat, low 80's with no humidity! Heaven. Your tablescapes are always lovely.

  19. I LOVE this Pinky! Black & white is always attractive, but I love it paired with the rustic elements, fabulous!

  20. Beautiful table! I am pinning this because I always shy away from using printed napkins and you do it so beautifully! Thanks so much for joining the DI & DI Link Party. :-)

  23. Hellooo Pinky!!! I positively love black and white check but never thought to put it with green. It looks gorgeous. Your tablescape is positively stunning! I'm going to steal your idea but will be sure to give you full credit!! Enjoy your week.

  24. Love your table, especially your black and white plates and your use of the green apples with leafy greenery (where did you find that wonderful small green wreath?) Well done. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
