Apples and Kiwi on the Table

We’ve had our share of dreary weather around here and on days like that I crave a little color.  I don’t dress the dining table nearly enough, but every once in a while we’ll sit down at table and enjoy our dinner in style.  This time I thought I would play a little using some white and green on the table.

I pulled out my everyday white dishes and perked them up by adding green saucers from another set. I love mixing and matching my dishes.

The woven placemats and napkin rings were purchased at the Gourmet Pantry,  a local kitchen store that is going out of business.  So sad to see them leave. However, I managed to pick up some great bargains at their retirement sale.

I love to add colorful fruit, in this case some kiwi fruit and green apples in a bowl.  And let’s not forget the touch of green on the napkins.

A small creeping fig plant serves as the centerpiece and adds a nice touch of dark green color.

Lots of texture and a little spring time color, along with the aroma of a loaf of fresh baked bread make this tablescape come together nicely.   What’s for dinner you ask?  Baked chicken and sautéed peppers over rice,  fresh asparagus and bread of course.  For dessert a fruit cup, strawberries, kiwi and bananas.  No pictures, sorry.

As always, thank you for visiting!
