White Dish Challenge

Kathleen @ Cuisine Kathleen, issued a white dish challenge, using only white dishes and one accent color. 


I decided to use my square plates, again, little cow butter holders...


...and my favorite color...green.


Green placemats...


...green glassware, and green and white Caladiums. 
Can you tell I love Caladiums?


A white vintage vase holds the Caladiums, and another square plate serves as a base.



Green and white...two of my favorite colors for Summer.

Please stop by Kathleen's and see everyone's white dish tablescapes.

Babs, this is a refreshing table for summer. I want to pull up a chair and join you. Of course, I'm smiling seeing your sweet little butter keepers with the cow atop, and those lovely monogramed linens. A+ table, Babs. I love this!

Beautiful table and the caladiums are gorgeous.

The little cow butter holders are so stinkin' cute! My husband is the indoor gardener and I'm thinking I need to have him get a Caladium ~ Reminds me of what we call Elephant ears or maybe it's the same thing?? It all looks very nice, of course ;) Judi

How beautiful! The green is a perfect summer green! Lovely table!

Diane said...

Even the Caladiums cooperated and grew green and white - lol!! Love those adorable cow butter holders - how fabulous they are. They add so much personality to the table. Wasn't this a fun challenge. I had so much fun looking at everyone's table!

Babs, I love your pretty table! It looks so fresh popping the green and white Caladiums! Just lovely!

Debbie said...

I love the place setting. The combination of the square plates with the round centers make the table look so sophisticated. I don't think it would be nearly so much so with the interruption of color. Love it. The green was the perfect, subtle accent.

Just simply gorgeous. Deb

Babs, This is beautiful...so classic. Your table looks like and expensive, fancy restaurant. Love those square plates and the little cows are to die for.
I love Caladiums also. Funny, some years they do fine here others not so good.
Thanks for sharing.

How pretty the white and green combination is. I love the little covered butter dishes. When I visited a friend in Belgium last year, there was a tiny covered butter dish at every breakfast setting. I brought the idea home and added to my collection of tiny all-white covered butter dishes. Love them!
