Fabulous Fruit

Last week was all about greens and browns in my Tropical Destination tablescape but this week it's bright colors and fruit.  Lots of fruit.  Fruit on the placemats.  Fruit on the napkins.  Fruit in the centerpiece and even fruit napkin rings.  This table reminds me of the 50's and all the great vintage tablecoths with fruit on them but there's something more contemporary about it too. 














So where did it all come from???

Placemats and matching napkins.....Domestications
Glasses.....Dollar Tree
Flatware.....BJ's Wholesale Club
Chargers.....Pier One bought at Goodwill and painted by me
Dinner Plates.....Dollar Tree
Salad Plates.....Ross
Napkin Rings.....Goodwill
Tray.....Villeroy and Boch Outlet
Pitcher.....Ross
Lantern.....Ross
Fruit and Faux Flowers.....Dollar Tree, Goodwill, Walmart

 
"Don't be afraid to go out on a limb.  It's where all the fruit is." 
Shirley MacLaine

Oooh, you're right...it DOES kind of take me back to the 60s while keeping a solid foothold in the new century! ;-) It's a very chic retro look!!! Carmen Miranda and the Fruit of the Loom guys would be humbled! :-) Have a great weekend!
