Another member of our Gourmet Group hosted both a lunch and Gourmet dinner at her house within a week of each other.  She used a beautiful “green apple tablescape” for both events .  This tablescape works well not only for spring or summer but is perfect to use anytime of the year.  See how she added some minor things to the table to transform it from a casual luncheon to a dinner party scape.

She started with a white tablecloth and three vases all filled with just green apples.  She glued on fun-looking green and white ribbons to each vase.

She started with a square mirror at each place setting to add some sparkle and elegance.  A great looking green and white plate was used to continue the theme.  The plates were angled to add another element of interest and dimension.

Cute green pinwheels were added to the napkin rings.

She cut off the top of a mum and floated it in a small, shallow bowl tied with green ribbon.  Bowls were placed at each place setting.

The same vases have been used but they have now been also filled with water and white hydrangeas.  Candles have been added to the table.

The same place setting is used – now just with a little more formality to it including place cards.

She and I both collect figurines made by Lori Mitchell.  I just love how she put “Bessies Beach Ball” under the cloche for the summer.
