Plum Crazy

Thanks for joining me! This tablescape all started when this autumn arrangement arrived at my office yesterday.
No it's not my Birthday or Anniversary.
The card read "I'm plum crazy about you~thought these would make a beeutiful tablescape this week" Mr B. Yes he's a keeper. I had another table in mind, but postponed

that idea so I could creative the setting above for Mr. B to join me for a lovely dinner on the porch.

No time to go out and get anything I was "shopping" the house.
I tried to marry all the colors in the bouquet.
A silk pashmina from my sister for my last Birthday was the base.
And these mallard duck salt and peppers seem to fit in swimmingly.Green plates and glasses.
And green candles in the lanterns.
Here's the plum vase for which this post is named.
Lovely colors of purple, orange and green.
I love the paisely and plaid in the pattern (say that five times)
looks very early fall . . . beautiful detail with fringe at the bottom of the scarf.

Hope you enjoy your day!

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday
