Colors Of Provence Tablescape

Hello everyone.  I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful holiday weekend.  It is almost impossible for me to think that it is September already.  The temps here still feel like summer so I am not in any rush to transition into fall decor yet.  I will enjoy every bit of sunshine and summer days while I can.

The other day while shopping at Costco, these gorgeous sunflowers caught my attention.  To no surprise, they ended up coming home with me.  And when I see such bright and rich colored blooms, I cannot help but imagine the enchanting landscape and picturesque villages of Provence.  Sadly, I must admit that I have never had the pleasure of visiting this amazing place but my imagination takes me there all the time.  Thought of its delightful cuisine, fresh herbs, warm climate, fields covered with lavender and sunflower live in my mind often. 



My table begins with a gorgeous bright patterned striped and floral square cotton Jacquard tablecloth from Provence which I purchased with a set of 4 napkins at the Philadelphia flower show a couple of years ago when the shows theme was France.  Side note:  What a spectacular show it was that year. The best one so far in my opinion. 



To add a bit of textures, I used wood chargers and topped with bright these yellow plates that have been in my collection for many years now.  They were originally purchased from Home Goods.  The pattern is called Petit Jardin by Culinary Arts


A lion head white soup bowl is placed on top of the dinner place which I used to serve a fruit salad. Finally I accented my place setting with decorative Ivory handle flatware from Sur La Table



Look at these gorgeous blooms.  Can't think of any other palette that paints the bright and warm colors of the French countryside.



















I hope you enjoyed the photos sweet friends.  That is all for today.  Have a fabulous rest of the weekend.

hugs,

Janet

  2. You set a very pretty table! Love the Napkins from Provence... So pretty! I picked up some sunflowers too at Costco, aren't they just so pretty? Mine lasted 6 days before wilting, although I read you can get them to last longer if you take care of them!

  3. How I'd love to have a seat at that table and enjoy a glass of ice tea or a light lunch. So pretty! Love the colours you chose to go with the beautiful sunflowers. Flowers in a white pitcher always look great and yours made the perfect centerpiece.

  5. Beautiful, warm, Mediterranean colours. I love sun flowers and ceramic plates.
    I live in Greece and the colours are similar to those in traditional Greek crockery.
    I have never been to Provence , myself and it is one of my dreams to go there one day, soon!
    Have a lovely week.

  12. Amongst all the others, yellow isn't the colour I prefer, to be honest, but on your table it's just this colour which gives such a touch of liveliness and it becomes incredibly beautiful and joyful to me !

    Your taste in embellishing tables is truly unique, believe me !

    Have a blessed day, my sweetest Janet,
    sending Love and hugs I wish you a most beautiful rest of the week
