Interlude In White!

We interrupt On Crooked Creektt's Summer decorating hues
for an Interlude In White!

My Interlude In White tablescape 
is part of the Let There Be White Party 3 @
Let's Dish with Cuisine Kathleen.

Beginning with clean, crisp, sophisticated linens
that have long graced our dining table with simplistic beauty,
I used a white damask rose with polka dot heirloom tablecloth.

Instead of place mats, I used a white cotton runner 
with organza polka dot border and an embroidered rose at each end 
the entire length of our circular dining table.

Nothing imparts such calm sweetness 
as a table adorned in the purity of white!

Interlude In White 
showcases my everyday white porcelain china.

Pure white porcelain china with embossed patterns 
featuring beaded edging, fluting, and leaves enhances almost any decor.
Although white can feel cold or austere,
I've paired the place setting with my MoMa's silver flatware
to create a welcoming palette of soothing tones.

Here and there,
hints of varying green hues lend to the Garden inspired decor.

The centerpiece is simply faux boxwood 
with snowball florals in an elegantly styled white embossed planter
elevated by a footed silver tray atop a white scrolled plate.

The addition of soft ambient candlelight
creates a sense of romance to our evening dining.

A continuance of elegant style dresses our table
with the addition of etched crystal rose stemware 
as it whispers a soft welcome
combined with individual crystal silver salt and pepper sets.

Take a moment to wander about,
enthralled and soothed by tranquil surroundings.

A bit of an Interlude In White,
On Crooked Creektt!

Until next time. . .

I love your white table -- it seems so cool! Which cool is usually welcome in July -- but apparently not this year!

White on white is one of my favorites and your table looks perfect. My eye caught the bird napkin rings, love them.

How clever to use a white runner on top of the white cloth for added interest and texture. The birdies are singing in the soft white clouds of your table!

Very elegant, Pat...you certainly met Kathleen's challenge. I feel awful I didn't iron my tablecloth after seeing your beautifully crisp one!
