Gum tree green

We live in an old house surrounded by the Aussie bush. I like having the natural bushland around (except for bushfire season!!) and everything that it brings with it. The colours are just beautiful and it wasn't until I looked back at my photos for today's tablescape that I realised my green tableware was the perfect match for the Aussie bush.



































I had so much fun doing this table - it wasn't what I had started out to do but it turned out just fine.

Your tablescape really is gorgeous and I LOVE the blue and green together. So pretty. I giggled when you said people always straighten you runner. I always have so much sitting on mine that they can't move it, so just pile a little more on it and they will leave it alone. lol Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Suzy, Your table is lovely. You're right, it looks great against the backdrop of trees/leaves. I enjoyed my visit to Australia today.

That is really pretty! The colors do blend in wonderful with the bush. I like the blue accent bottle. Just great! Thanks for linking it up to Home Sweet Home!

Suz said...

Suzy,
This is one of my favorite color combinations. I had a set of dishes in the blues and greens years ago, put out by Block, and they quit making them. I was very sad. My daughter has what is left. Please come and visit my site if you have time. I am barely into this addiction!
Fondly,
Suz
