Aqua and Lime

I'm adding lime to my favorite color of aqua today for my tablescape. Hope you can take another aqua tablescape by me.


Take a look:




I really hadn't planned to do another aqua tablescape but then I found this aqua and lime green tablecloth at TJ Maxx for $4.99 and I just had to have it. It is vinyl so could be used indoor or out.

You have seen my aqua goblets before and may remember that I bought them at Target. I love using them in my aqua tablescapes.


I purchased the lime plates at Dollar Store and had been thinking about a tablescape to set with them. I bought  the napkins at Tuesday Morning and the napkin rings from Pier One (all a while back) so wouldn't you have bought the tablecloth knowing you had elements to use with it? You all know I am a push over for anything aqua.


The lime placemats are a new find and at a bargain - half price. We have been in Branson, MO, this week and I found them at a kitchen shop in one of the Outlet Malls. I do have some other round lime green placemats I haven't used but I did love the three flowers attached separately on top and remember they were a bargain. I turned the mat so the flowers would be on the upper left so they would have a little more exposure.
My centerpiece for the table is a small green olive jar filled with white hydrangeas. The jar came from TJ Maxx and then I used a green plate to set it on for a little added accent. The candle jars were in the $1 bins at Target, my daughter noticed them and picked them up for me.

You can really see one of the handles on the jar in this image.
I made a few changes to my breadrack to share. I have had white vignettes for a couple of weeks so just added some aqua elements to carry out my theme. I didn't add any more green since you can see plenty of green going on with the wreath, trailing ivy and my Mother-in-Law's tongue plant.
I added the pillar candles on both levels of the rack and moved the birds in close. The small aqua flower plate is new from TJ Maxx.




I liked taking the images of the teapot, the candle and the bird (above) through the edges of the wreath. It gives a little added interest and depth to the images.

Thanks for stopping by to see my Aqua and Lime tablescape - Judy.

I real like how you used layers not only on the table but on your bread rack too! I also purchased some of the lime plates at Dollar Tree! Too hard to resist the bright summery color! The tablecloth is perfect. Everything is just lovely! I am going to looking out for those cute candle jars at Target!

Judy,

You need NEVER EVER apologize for any tablescape you do- they are always remarkable!

Love this, all goes together perfectly.

You have a true talent for amazing tablescapes! Very well done, I'd come dine with you anytime haha!!

I think there can never be too much aqua! I love that you have added lime, it looks so fresh and relaxing. Another fabulous tablescape! The tablecloth is so pretty and I would never have guessed that it wasn't linen. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!!

(hugs)

Judy, I love that you have an aqua obsession. I am all about obsessions - lol! I love the combination of colors on the table. That green looks fabulous with the aqua and I think those green placemats were an incredible find. Love what you did with the breadrack!

Gina said...

So, so pretty! I love this color combination and that tablecloth is fantastic!

What a gorgeous table. Your aqua Target glasses are so pretty! Beautiful all the way around!Stopping by from Tablescape Thursday.

ann k said...

Judy! This is beautiful! Never would have realized that the table cloth was vinyl until you mentioned it. Here I have been shying away from the all of the outdoor table clothes because I don't have a place for them outside. I like all the extra touches on your bread rack too!

Alycia Nichols said...

Who could possibly tire of aqua...especially this time of year???? Paired with the green and white, it's super duper cool!!!! You could have waterboarded me all day, though, and I would never have thought that tablecloth was vinyl. Great pick! They really make some pretty vinyls these days, and I just love it when they work their way into a great tablescape. It always makes me smile how you and I have such similar taste in so many items! It's like looking into my own stash when I see all the cool stuff you have! I like the subtle changes you made to the rack behind the table. Just those teensy bits of aqua blue make a big difference! That Mother-In-Law's tongue is really big and healthy!!! I'd hate to have her yellin' at me! :-)

Tanya@takesix said...

Judy, I would never have thought to put this color combo together, but it is wonderful. What sweet place mats. It is obvious by the napkin rings, that it is a popular color combo. Great job!

Judy Ann Lincicum said...

Yeah! Judy's back! I missed you while you were gone. This aqua and green tablescape is sooo
refreshing and I love the colors together for summer. But my favorite is still the aqua and white; crisp, soft at the same time, and very eye pleasing. Hope you had a great time in Branson and brought back some goodies to share! Hugs, Judy

Elaine said...

Wow, there isn't anything I don't love! I never would have guessed that tablecloth isn't cloth. It's so pretty, and you have combined elements which complement it so well. LOVE those goblets from Target!

lulumusing said...

You have chosen one of my favorite color combinations. There is never a time when it doesn't seem just right....at least in my eyes.
Thanks for your visit. Do come again.

Judy, you always set the most beautiful tables, but this time you have used my 2 favorite colors. And I would never have guessed that your tablecloth was vinyl. I love every detail, especially those aqua glasses.

Love the tablecloth -- I always love soft prints and this one certainly announces summer with its cheery colors.

Aqua and lime is my favorite color combo. It's feesh, spunky and refined all at the same time. I don't shop TJ Max but I'm going to have to start. That tablecloth is so lovely and you can't beat the price. You have done a really fabulous job on this table!

Linda said...

Judy, these colors together look fabulous. Loving that tablecloth...TJ Maxx is one of my favorite stores, along with Marshalls, Home Goods and Hobby Lobby.

ellen b. said...

Hi Judy! Love your layering with these fresh colors! I really enjoy TJ Max and I'm so excited that Homegoods is finally coming to the Seattle area (grand opening this weekend!)
