Table Setting Inspiration: Orange And Aqua

I tore this page out of an issue of Romantic Homes Magazine, because I loved the combination of orange and aqua used to create this table setting. If I can ever find that magazine again, I will give credit - it was from a book, and I don't recall the title.

The colors inspired me to try to create my own table. I just worked with what I had - my colors are a little brighter, I suppose!
But I was happy with it.

Now I think I will be "playing" with my dishes and linens more often, to create other tables so that I can photograph them and show them to you!

I just last night watched a "Project Runway" episode, and a designer who was in the bottom 3 (but did not get outed)was lambasted for her use of orange and turquoise for a child's outfit (and also an outfit for an adult). They hated it. Both of us watching thought the colors looked wonderful together. And now your post with the same colors! Go Heidi! I have been meaning to show my nasturtium place setting from the time I entered in the county fair and did so poorly (but I loved it!) Just goes to show that everyone on this earth is a bit different from their neighbor. This sounds like a fun idea for a line of posts. Love T

I love your table setting! It's better than the inspiration setting. That is a beautiful chair in the photo also. Great idea to post table settings. You're really good at putting things together. I look forward to many more.
