A Simple Little Table in Yellow...

March is a pretty ugly time of year here in the mountains of Colorado. Everything is brown and dusty, even the snow. Today I walked to our local flower shop to see if they had anything to brighten the day. This darling bouquet was in the cooler, so I brought it home to set a table around.

A basic white table cloth is a must, so I pulled out my eyelet cloth. Then I remembered the yellow table topper our foreign exchange student sent to us a few years ago. It has silk daffodils on it.

I grabbed my vintage yellow Fiesta luncheon plates. They look pretty good with the centerpiece. A few posts ago I told I would be using these lacy plates from Pier 1, alot. I really like the way they look against the yellow plate. Everyday stainless and a water goblet finish the place setting.

What to do about napkins? I could use a plain white or a plain yellow, they'd be ok. But then, I remembered that Jenny sent napkins to match the table topper. That little bit of blue and green helps this table keeps this table from being too boring. But-they're paper! That's ok, I think that paper napkins serve a purpose, and today my purpose is easy!
And so, there it is. A simple little table in yellow. I've been busy for the last few weeks and haven't been able to join in the fun. I've missed seeing the wonderful things you girls and guys do with a few plates and glasses. Susan-as always, you're such a gracious hostess, Thank You for having me. Now-let's get back to the party!!! 


  1. Love the white plates the detail on them. Yellow is such a cheerful color all the really happy people I have known loved yellow. So life affirming yellow.
    Fun to see all the pretty tablescapes

  2. Whenever I see yellow on a table, it immediately puts me in a good mood. Yours is no exception!

  9. Hi Sharon,

    Your table is so sweet and cheerful -- I love it! Yellow is such a cheerful colorful and when you add crisp white and throw in a little bright blue in the napkins, it's just a perfect combination. I love your eyelet tablecloth and that yellow table topper is precious. What a special gift from your foreign exchange student! Thanks for sharing.


  10. Thanks for your visit this week. Your yellow looks so cheerful and springy. Reminds me of the daffodils which are just about to bloom. I often use cloth and paper napkins at the table --- paper for the mouth and cloth for the lap. Love finding some in such pretty colors.
