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:

Beautiful succulent dinner plates set the scene for a succulent themed tablescape

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!

  1. LOVE this Chloe! I can’t believe how many cute melamine plates there are available now, I myself am guilty of having way more than I need because they are so reasonably priced and look like real plates! Your succulent theme is so attractive and does bring a cool vibe to these hot summer days, and your porch is the perfect backdrop for this beautiful table!

    1. Thank you Jenna! I have decided since they are lightweight, I have begun passing them on via mail to other tablescapers. I just can’t keep adding to my dish collection!

  2. Those colors are beautiful! What a great transitional table for late summer, early fall. You’d never know you were probably sitting on Satan’s porch there in FL and hot it probably was when you set that table!

    1. You called it Rita! Send some cool West Virginia weather this way, will you please?

  3. This is lovely Chloe. Can you believe the pretty melamine plates they sell? I love it.

    Enjoy your day
