I couldn't decide which dishes to use for Tablescape Tuesday. I believe I've shown most everything (except for the Bethany Lowe dishes, and the gray ones, of course). Then I remembered some dishes I hadn't unpacked.
But first, I placed candles around the white tureen. And I put the tureen on a green Bordello platter.
Next, I added my monkeys.
And "Monkey Business" was born.
A view from Dr. G's chair.
I've showed this little jug before, but he's so cute, I decided to use him today.
I love the detail on the tureen.
This is the smiling monkey.
And the giggling monkey.
I added my old nut dishes.
Here's a close up of the old silver. I love to mix it.
Several years ago, I bought little bobeches for the candlesticks. You'd never know they're plastic.
The silver was bought one piece at a time at tag sales.
I have a weakness for midcentury pottery, and I love the old Metlox "Sculpted Zinnia."
The ecru napkins looked blah. I tried florals, and they were too wild. The green Thanksgiving napkins (K mart) look much better in person (not quite so dark), but I do wish I had a flirty plaid.
I get lost looking at crystal.
See you at Susan's house, Between Naps on the Porch for more tablescaping.
