Tablescape Tuesday: Paisley & Peacocks

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭4:23‬ ‭

If you haven’t noticed, we love to celebrate birthdays in our family!  We eat and laugh and celebrate life!  And this past Sunday, we celebrated Allison! She has the most unique birth date…8-8-88, easy to remember!  The menu was simple but the birthday girl’s favs – Butch’s famous grilled burgers with the trimmings and homemade vanilla bean ice cream – perfect for a summer day!  Come join us for the party!

The inspiration for the setting was the turquoise napkins that we used for Seth and Allie’s wedding!
You can see more here: The Wedding Edition.

The turquoise gives that pop of color to the table!

The place mats were at the bottom of a linen drawer and I had forgotten about them…happy to find and use them!

Peacock place card holders!

Simple centerpieces!

Beaded coasters from an outlet store match the stemware and napkins.  Sweet napkin rings with a little bling!

The dinner and salad plates along with the flatware appear often on Tablescape Tuesday!

The birch floral containers remain a favorite find!


Peacock bowl full of apples!

I cut lemon balm and limelight hydrangeas from the garden to fill the birch containers!

The “birthday girl”!

    I’ve decided this is one of my top- two favorite color combinations, the other one being yellow and blue. Also, Pam, my grandson was born on 8/18/08 at 8:00.

  2. Stephanie says:

    Good morning, Pam! Once again you have created a stunning tablescape! The peacock card holders are lovely and elegant.

    Coral and Aqua are simply gorgeous together Pam. Love the paisley plates! As always, a gorgeous table! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  4. Hi Pam,

    I’m visiting from Stephanie’s link party and it’s such a pleasure to find your lovely blog. I recently used these very same colours in a food photography shoot and they are stunning together. Love them!
    The wood vases for the flowers are such a lovely touch. Sounds like the perfect birthday!

    Another beautiful tablescape! The orange, red, and turquoise look great together. Thank you so much for sharing every week at Inspiration Thursday. I really appreciate you visiting! Have a great week!

    • Susanne, thank you so much for your sweet and gracious comments! If you go all the way down to the bottom of this post, I listed the sources. Again, thank you so much for reading and taking time to comment!

    Very pretty! I love this combination of colors. I’m on my Chromebook so not sure if I am seeing the colors correctly. It looks like almost a salmony pink mixed with turquoise? I love it. I love paisley, peacocks and hamburgers so this setting is a win-win to me!

We love your comments!
