True Excitement
The prospect of a set of twelve in dinnerware caused my imagination to think of two tablescapes!
Dining Room
"Garden Beauty" by 222 Fifth is the catalyst for the designs.  
The teapot with the creamer and sugar bowl were a pleasant find to create a centerpiece. The pale green cake stand lifts the presentation.
Each place setting in the dining room has a colorful combination!
The hues are balanced by soft greens in the candles and napkins with the accents of bright pinks in the flatware and flowers.
The scalloped edges of the square salad plates enhance the flowered china.
The dinner plates provide the colors of turquoise, blues, celery, greens, fuchsia, and pinks!
A curving cup and saucer lends itself to a choice of your favorite hot tea!
Vintage linens is the blessing of a lovely place mat background with precise colors and garden feel.
Beautiful pink and fuchsia roses balance the centerpiece and give a touch of nature!  

Breakfast Room
Sunny setting for a casual affair!
The changes of color combinations are immediately achieved with a display of blues and lavenders!

The place setting is calmed by the turquoise linens and blue footed goblets. A casual feel is achieved by the addition of a mug.
The centerpiece is a simple combination of the matching cake stand and the beautiful white china teapot.

Dramatic purple orchids ringed with white are displayed in the teapot!
The mug is sided up to a blue stemmed glass.  
The beaded edging of the flatware creates a more formal feel and the silver adds another cooling factor.
The purple and pink flower combinations 
plus all the greenery give the windows and window seat a " Garden Beauty" of the china!

I will be posting this on the following tea blogs; 
A stroll thru life,
and Bernideen's Tea Time Blog,
A delightsome life,,
along with the blog of;
Between Naps on the Porch,
are some of my favorites and
I will also post on them this week!

Both table settings are lovely, Pam. I am especially fond of the turquoise though as it's a favourite colour of mine. The china really is pretty. Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your week.

Your "Garden Beauty" china is very versatile, as evidenced by the two pretty table settings that you crated. Purple is my favourite colour so I'm partial to the turquoise and purple table setting. I also like the orchid in the white teapot!

Isn't it nice to have china so versatile that you can create these two different looks with it? I imagine you'll create many more, too. Just lovely!

We also changed up our everyday china last year from round to the curvy squares. All is fun and colorful table settings.
