It pleased me to read your comments on my post last week about the tables my sister in law and I decorated for a meeting we hosted. It was very fun to read your favorites. I didn’t count but I think the seaside table was most popular followed by the black and white polka dots. You can scroll down a couple of posts back if you missed those tables.
This week I would like to show you a few more of the eight tables we created.
It seems I use these brown transferware dishes time and time again.
This is the first time I’ve paired them with yellow.
Love the updated look with the Bee
and Yellow tulips!
Don’t you agree the yellow seems to breath fresh air into a timeless dish pattern?
It has a classic richness and depth about it.
Next up on stage is tried and true blue.
It was so interesting when people would actually tell us their favorite table.
Of course there are always going to be lovers of blue who chose this as their favorite.
My new favorite element to add is doubling up on napkins.
Here we start with blue and layer with white.
And finally we have another yellow table but this one has a more country feel with the addition of black and white.
The roosters fit in well adding to the French country design and it’s all tied together resting on black and white toile.
This was just a fabric piece I had. We layered the toile on top of a vintage yellow/white linen tablecloth found in my stash.
I found the set of twelve yellow and black dishes at the thrift shop. Nothing else to go with them, but that is actually better.
Much more fun to mix and match!
I adore these little square napkins with the hand stitched basket.
I crisped them right up with a good, heavy dose of starch.

There is actually one more table to share (well two, but somehow I didn’t get pictures of one of them!) I will save that table for another day.
I do hope you’ve had fun seeing the bistro tables we put together for our meeting.
Perhaps it will give you ideas on a upcoming program idea.
I am joining Susan for Tablescape Thursdays at Between Naps on the Porch.
Thanks so much for stopping by 47th Street today. Let me know you were here!
