Table for Twelve


A table set for twelve with blue and white pottery and purple accents.

Several shades of Alstroemeria were placed in three cube vases on mirrored tiles like a table runner. Odd numbers of vases usually work well.
Alstroemeria is an inexpensive flower available in most grocery stores that holds up well and lasts a few weeks. It is available in a variety of colors.
Faux white pumpkins were added for a touch of fall. This event was earlier in September.

I bought the purple stemmed glassware several years ago and have not used them until now. They were on clearance and too good of a deal to resist.
My dining table is large with three twenty two inch leaves so twelve can sit very comfortably. My husband still jokes after 35 years the table used to be his vintage WW2 airplane. The table still works and I don't think his plane would still run now.








Each plate and cup and saucer have a different design.

Purple glasses- Ballard Design, several years ago
Blue and white pottery- Neiman Marcus
White chargers- IKEA
Napkins- Pier One, several years ago
Flatware- Williams Sonoma, several years ago
Vases- Pottery Barn, a number of years ago
Flowers are Alstroemeria from Publix

  20. Gorgeous Bonnie! I ADORE your assortment of blue and white cups and plates! The accents of purple from the alstroemeria and your goblets are beautiful on your table! My dining room furniture is in storage since we sold our house in Charlotte. I miss it and hope to be able to enjoy again one day :)

  21. As you might guess I am crazy about your table. It is simple yet there's so much of interest. I like the addition of your purple glasses which are pretty sassy. I'm betting your guests appreciated your handiwork.

  22. Stunning! Very elegant and for twelve guests dear Bonnie, it's just wonderful! I love the Alstroemeria flowers, as you say, they are sold in the super market and very inexpensive and lovely.
    My table sits ten, but twelve is just great this way you don't have to have people in another setting.
    The china is gorgeous too and I can't believe you are just using those lovely purple glasses!
    Hugs,
