As I mentioned in my previous post,
I could use some more pink in my house...
It all started when I found these lime green houndstooth place mats
on sale at Pier One...
They look a little sage-y in this picture
but they are actually more lime green...
Anyway, I was going to save them for spring and use them on the deck. But then I thought, wait a minute, these would look great with a hot pink scarf from my closet. I love pink and green together. And if I added some sparkly ornaments, I could actually make pink work for Christmas.
Since the downstairs rooms in my house are warmer colors,
I had a hard time figuring out where to "stage" my little card table.
I like the look of the white french doors in the background so I placed the table in the conservatory leading into the living room. The walls are green (not lime) but it seemed like a good place. It was also sunny in there that morning so I was able to get some natural light. Just ignore the fact that I have no chairs set up at my little prop of a table!
My plates are not as white as the napkins,
but hey, you work with what you have!
Just a few glass ornaments and some sparkle
to tie the colors together...
So, what do you think? Is it Christmasy enough?
