Elegant Lilac

I am loving purples lately.  Particularly lilac.  It is my new go-to favorite.  So much so that I did a little makeover in my bedroom to incorporate this lovely color.  It is soothing and serene.  And I find it elegant, chic, fresh and the perfect color to create this decidedly feminine table for you today. 
 
A vintage tablecloth in white makes a beautiful base for the lovely light purple plates purchased from Home Goods and pretty flower-patterned Limoges salad plates finish the place setting.  To that, I added mismatched silver plate flatware and stemware for easy entertaining.  For a final touch I added  a silver plate oil and vinegar set and a porcelain cable holder to bring polish to the table  A true romantic table...
 
While I appreciate the elegant, cohesive look of matching pieces on a table, I can't deny the charm of a table set with mismatched pieces.   A welcoming table to invite lovely conversation.

I hope you enjoy the few images I am sharing of my table.  Thank you for visiting my blog.

  9. I always wish that we had a Home Goods. I make a point to do a HG sweep when in Dallas, but I'm sure those great lilac plates will be long gone. Love the beaded goblets. Gorgeous! And Limoges is always a perfect choice. Beautiful table! Cherry Kay

  16. Hi Janet! You set the most romantic tables that I just adore. They are not overly fussy, just simply elegant, yet in a casual style. I love the dishes you've used and I'm intrigued by the candle holder. I want to be a guest at your table, and virtually is the next best thing!! xo

  17. Hello Janet,
    You have set the most romantic table! Every bit of it is just gorgeous! I love your new lilac plates. I too, just got some beautiful robin egg blue plates there. Isn't Homegoods just wonderful! I love the shape of your plates too. Mixing and matching china is so creative. I think it can make or an interesting table....more contrast and texture...
    Beautiful!

  20. Good Evening Janet, This is such a pretty table which you have laid with such exquisite china. I do use matching china, but when I want an informal supper, I lay mismatching china, as you say, it adds interest to the table.
    Lilac is such a pretty colour and the roses look beautiful dressed with the string of pearls.
    It is truly a romantic table..... so very beautiful.
    Best Wishes
