Colorful Spring Tablescape

Last week, when World Market was having their big, annual Friends & Family sale, I stopped in and picked up a few things.  I was immediately drawn to their colorful selection of outdoor entertaining goodies, like melamine plates and plastic cups.  I use melamine plates daily for my protein pancakes, so a few more wouldn’t hurt, and they’re really affordable.  I played around with pre-setting a colorful Spring table that I intend to use when I have some girlfriends over for lunch soon.

Starting with the green and white geometric runner I sewed with fabric from High Fashion Home, I started layering the pink and orange plates on top of larger white ceramic plates as chargers.  The World Market plates coordinate with their cloth napkins and colorful cups.  
I bought the lime green and aqua colored plates too and cups in pink, orange and aqua

dresses-up the table.  I can’t recall exactly where I purchased mine (Amazon or Overstock I think, but mine was just 3 pieces, serving for 6).
I think this will be the perfect, casual girl’s lunch table setting.  It’s nice to eat lunch at home sometimes, and just let the kids play in the backyard, as opposed to trying to corral everyone at a restaurant.  Seems like we tend to linger more and talk longer when we’re at home.  
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and had a wonderful Mother’s Day!  You deserved it!
