Weekly Table Setting

My last week of using the Amapola dishes
by Villeroy & Boch for April.
 I added more blue pottery and napkin rings 
from  Longaberger, blue goblets, natural 
plate chargers and woven placemats. 
All things I've used many times before
 in different combinations.
I previously had the ever-blooming orchid 
in a silver pitcher and now have it in a basket
 keeping with a more natural theme.
 I'm using a scrap of wood board for 
a table runner. I cleaned and sanded 
the rough edges a bit first.
 A few simple changes to keep things fresh.
I always keep my table set for our next meal.
It's nice to come in for breakfast in the 
morning and see it ready.
Then lunch...
for the sandwich recipe.
very yummy!


  1. I'm known to set the table immediately after a meal is finished, too...but not every time. I love the textures that you've used....the scrap of board is a great idea. Complementary colors always make for an eye pleasing design. Thank you for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  2. Love the colors and textures on the is so "happy"...and will have to try the Spinach Artichoke Grilled Chesse..looks decadent!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. You just totally sold me on the Spinach-Artichoke Grilled Cheese sandwich. I have GOT to try that!!! I love spinach-artichoke dip, and I love grilled cheese. I figure I can't go wrong with them together!!! I've got all of those ingredients in the kitchen right now. Man, I wish I hadn't eaten dinner before seeing that!!! Now I have to wait until Saturday since I'll be out tomorrow! :-(

  4. Love the blue and orange.. perfect companions to one another. Love seeing the plank again.. so perfect. I want one of those sandwiches.. really badly.. they look great. xo marlis

  5. Just wonderful color combination! Love those dishes. The sandwich looks so good. I just love your orchid.

  6. The sandwich looks divine and your orchids are enviable!

    Sometimes I wonder how you make time to lay out such wonderful tables!

    I am 25 and after work I have no energy to eat let alone lay out a table!
    You do such great work .....

    Thank-you ...your blog is like a visual treat and a great way to wind up my day :))
