I'm joining all the other tablescapers over at Between Naps On The Porch
again this week for Susan's wonderful Tablescape Thursday party!
Some of you may remember a tablescape entitled Spring Chickens and Vera's Butterflies ,
which appeared here on The Little Round Table back on February 17. 2010.
At this posting it is the 2nd most popular tablescape (based on the number of visitors
to the post) ever posted here on TLRT. Just FYI the most visited tablescape is my
personal favorite also, April In Paris - An Update on "Those French Plates"
In case you don't remember the table setting, here's a reminder.
Many vintage tablecloths can be found in several colorways. In my collection I have several cloths
with examples in up to four different colorways. So when I came across this example of Vera's
Butterflies, it was an easy decision to make and I promptly purchased it. Needless to say it was a lot more of a challenge to come up with a tablescape with the colors on this second colorway
than with the classic white/blue/green version!
In the book "Vera - The Art and Life of An Icon" by Susan Seid with Jen Renzi, a poster
of this print is shown on page 110. The graphics for the poster and this tablecloth were
inspired by bold hues she saw in Africa.
So here are Vera's Butterflies on a trip from the 60's - pop your eyes out purple, outrageous
orange and a yellow that could burn your retinas!
Chargers are from Anthropologie, Sunflower Fiesta dinner plates, orange/white salads from Home Goods, Plum Fiesta berry bowls, napkins from Home Goods, napkin rings from Crate and Barrel many years ago, glassware from Target and Oneida's Cityscape flatware.
Post 86 Fiesta Lilac Juice Pitcher, vintage Homer Laughlin creamer,
vintage Pacific Pottery fruit bowl.
Here the dinnerplate is Fiesta Plum (which is very dark, but I assure you it is NOT black)
The Millennium III Fiesta vase in Sunflower came from a Strawser auction in June of 2000.
Thanks for coming by to see this alternate version of Vera's Butterflies tablecloth!
What would you set this cloth with??
