Yellow and Black Tablescape

Welcome to my Yellow and Black Tablescape. Take a look:

My inspiration for the tablescape came from my tablecloth which is an embroidered/print/cut work tablecloth from Germany and purchased on eBay for a very reasonable price.

The daisies for the centerpiece came from my daughter's flower garden and are perfect with the tablecloth. They are so bright and cheerful, I just love their center color. The vase is Fiestaware.

Both sets of glasses are from the Dollar Store so not much expense there. I try to buy extra ones in case of breakage. Sure seems like glasses slip right out of my hand when I am washing them. I do try and put them in the dishwasher most of the time.

The yellow dinner plate and salad plate are Fiestaware. The black flatware is from Walmart, not expensive but not the best quality. 

I always love to look at color combinations when I am creating tablescapes. I enjoy seeing what combinations look pleasing to my eye then hope everyone else likes it too. 

On the breadrack I placed dessert bowls, extra lemonaid glasses, the lemonaid pitcher and a gravy boat.

Think I'll bring the candle from the breadrack over to the table as evening arrives for a little ambiance.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you can take time to leave a message - Judy.

  6. Beautiful! Yellow and grey has become my latest favorite color combo. Love your tablecloth and your tablescape is lovely!..Christine

  7. Hi Judy!

    The black and yellow color combo is very striking. It looks very chic and casual at the same time.

    I wanted to get those lemon slice glasses last year, I hope they get them back in stock. Be careful when washing in the dishwasher... some detergents will etch away the pattern. I think it is the detergent with lemon added to it.

    Thanks for sharing at my party this week :)

    Wednesdays Bunny Hop Party!

  8. I love how wonderfully your tablecloth goes with your dishes and the rest of the table, Judy!

  9. I just love this very dramatic table! The tablecloth is really a stunning find. Very summery!

  10. Love it.. very eye catching indeed.
    I have those same yellow dishes..

  11. Awww...Judy this is the happiest little sunny table ever. Those lemon glasses are SWEEEET!

  12. What a beautiful table setting! It makes me think of bumble bees too. A bee skep would be a cute centerpiece with it as another option. I love your daisies though. Everything is so perfect for summer!

  13. Ooh Judy, loving the yellow and blacks together and adore the napkin rings. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  14. What a lovely tablescape. Love the colors.

  15. Beautiful tablescape. Love the black and yellow. The daisies are so beautiful and your Fiesta ware is beautiful also. Thanks for sharing.
    I bought the same lemon glasses from dollar tree. I love them. I really need to go back and try to find extras.
    Blessings, Ginger :)

  16. So fun and Summery!! I love it! Black and white and yellow is one of my favorite combinations. Great job! Thanks for linking up to Centerpiece Wednesday and sharing!

  17. Beautiful job Judy! I love how you used black and yellow together! Those yellow flower napkin rings are so pretty! Have a wonderful week! Angie xo

  18. I love a yellow and black combination. (Probably shouldn't admit that since those are Georgia Tech colors, and I graduated from rival UGA...) I still love the pairing, and this table is really well done. I love those citrus etched glasses most of all. I would love them for lemonade or a morning table.

    The daisies? Perfect choice.

  19. I love this color combination, Judy. Your table is beautiful.

  20. I absolutely love this! These are super color combinations, so creative.

  21. Hello Mrs. JB,

    My eye candy, indeed for this TS day.
    Unfortunately, I can't link to Susan's meme today...

    Happy TS,

  22. Hi Judy, The black and yellow make such a bold statement together but are softened by the daisies and beautiful tablecloth!

  23. Hey Judy! I must have gotten the yellow and black vibe from you! Although your yellow and black table looks much more elegant than mine!! Love the table cloth - and of course the daisies! Have a nice week!

  24. Judy, I like the yellow with the black, and the daisies from your daughter's garden are delightful. My mom always great these sweet daisy plants. Wish I had some in my garden.

  25. Love the daisies! The yellow and black are so summery! Like a bumble bee. :)

  26. Such a lovely table you set. I love the tablecloth and your lemonaide glasses. Your napkin rings are cute too. Daisys are such a great flower, easy to grow and look beautiful on your table. Have a great weekend.

I love it when you come visit sweet lady, so thank you very much.

  31. Judy, I love that eBay tablecloth! Those lemon glasses are so cute with the lemon pitcher. The daisies are the perfect centerpiece!!
