Tablescape Thursday...Summer green without the Summer!

Joining in for Tablescape Thursday with
www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com and our great hostess Susan.
Be sure and stop by her great blog and see who is setting a wonderful table this week!

Even though we are not having weather that resembles Summer, I did a Summer like table anyway.  I know many of you wish you weren't having the weather you are having, to hot! So take care of yourselves, stay cool!
We have been lucky to get up to 70 or 80 a few times lately, strange weather year!

I found this green and cream toile table cloth lately and so that inspired me to set the dining room table with those colors.
Everything else I had but the dinner plates are a new thrift store find too.

The place setting; layered the new old "Balmoral" patterned transfer ware
dinner plates with some cute green and cream roll plates and leaf bowls.
Used my grandparent's silver plate flatware, green napkins with bird napkin rings.

These dinner plates were a thrift store find and now I am loving this color and pattern, might be on the hunt for more pieces .
What can I say I am hooking on transfer ware now!

These little cross hatched patterned plates or some I found long time ago.
I sure love this shade of green, one of my favorites, seems like it will go, depending on what you put with it for just about every season of the year.

For the center piece I brought some garden like things together on a large silver plated serving tray.  A green mercury glass finial and our same color mercury glass wine glasses ad some sparkle to it all.

Those ever cute bird Salt and Pepper shakers from Target and some bird napkin rings ( also a thrift store find) add some more garden elements to the whole thing.

Hi, Linda! I am pretty sure this is my first time visiting your blog. I am a regular on Tablescape Thursdays, but I don't remember seeing you on there even though I try very hard to get to each and every post. I'm usually done by Thursday evening, so I don't always get those posted after that. I am glad I checked back today. I love the green transferware! It's beautiful!!! I am a huge fan of transferware, and I love to see how others use it in their creations. I love the moss balls in the centerpiece arrangement, too. Very cool. Enjoy your weekend!

Green and white is so cool and refreshing in the summer time.

Linda, you've definitely spread some regal joy tonight with this cool green tablescape! Your layering is especially nice.

Stop by if you get a chance. I'm celebrating my first year of blogging with a Vintage Linen & Dish Auction ... going on now!
