Though the lovely red cherry tomatoes show off the main color in the post...GREEN!
But I did choose the title carefully. It is a reference to a specific part of the 1939 film, Gone With the Wind. Remember Scarlett O'Hara, in her smashing green velvet dress?
Do you also remember that this lovely outfit was, in fact, made from her mother's curtains?
Well, I couldn't help but think of her, that dazzling green look, and creative repurposing when typing up my post for this week. Can you see why?
Look at the tablecloth. It is a beaded green velvet burnout scarf! My wonderful mother bought this lovely accessory for me several years ago. And today, it was repurposed for this brunch table on the porch! The details are really fantastic!
I always like the way food looks on a green table, and I thought this would add a little pizazz since the green in our backyard is taking its sweet time this year.
I added some green eBay plates and Colony carnival glass. Carnival glass is at its best in a sunny spot!
I borrowed a few green linen napkins from my mother and some stainless that I ran across in a thrift store for 20 cents a piece! It is the very elegant Silver Leaf pattern made by Lifetime Stainless. I was able to fill out the pattern (again) thanks to eBay!
And what a lovely setting for our little taquito appetizer, followed by a yummy chicken, vegetable, and rice dish.
The table was a Pier 1 find last summer. I often use it for a side table in the den. The two ottomans were purchased for my daughters' room make-over from Tuesday Morning in December 2009. They were 19$ each, I think. The girls are running out of room, though, and have generously given them back to me for use throughout the house! I am so glad I picked a neutral color!
I love the glittery, multi-green table! I hope you do, too!
Thank you for coming by!
