When I spotted these plates at WalMart, there was no question they would be coming home with me. These plates are a work of art! They may be melamine, but guess what? They are $2.48 each!!
Make a centerpiece:
Of course if you are going to style a succulent tablescape, you have to have a succulent centerpiece. I am gifting this to a friend, so I purchased this new footed bowl. My succulents were purchased local, but only because I couldn’t get these delivered to Florida. If you live outside of Florida, you might want to have these delivered right to your door! Assorted selection of succulents!
Do you know that expression about your eyes being bigger than your stomach? Well, my eyes for succulents were bigger than the space I had to plant them. I did fudge a little by adding a couple of faux succulents like that purple one to add the color I wanted in the the planter.
It was easy to plant the succulents in the planter. This will make a lovely gift that will continue to grow.
Set the table:
This is a perfect time of year to find a cooler evening after the rain to have dinner on the porch. This is a table I am pleased to invite friends to dine at.The question was how to incorporate the vibrant colors on the plates with the rest of my plate stack. I spotted these chargers on sale at Pier 1 and knew they were just what I needed. The placemats are also from Pier 1 and added the natural feeling to the table. For my dinner plates, I only had to go to my cupboard and find these gray plates to coordinate with the colors. I used my Pioneer Woman gray-handled flatware to complete the place settings.
Smoky gray wine glasses are all the stemware that is needed at this casual summertime table. I couldn’t leave your without this great overhead shot of the table, ready for guests to arrive!
