patterns and prints

Saturday, June 4, 2011

there's no question i love colorful patterns and prints. so when i finally got my monogrammed melamine plates, i didnt hesitate to try it out with another bold pattern, in this case a pink liner over white tablecloth - for a bright summer tablescape perfect for a baby/bridal shower, outdoor brunch or a girly soiree.

to tame the crazy patterns, i limited the color scheme to two colors, pink and green and kept the decor simple. i only had macarons on hand, so i added those as treats.

to sum it up, i think it's a bold move to marry two prints together in table decor but in my opinion it still works!



what do you think? what are your thoughts?

Your ideas follow suit with fashion with the latest being a mixing of patterns. I spy macarons too, and how cute would they be with their own polka dot pattern or floral http://www.GreenEyedSusan.com :)

Love your prints together! I’ll admit a certain geeky love for “What Not to Wear” here and reference Clinton Kelly...you can definitely pair prints together as long as one is bolder than the other. Your pink print almost acts as a neutral pattern against the green near-chevron pattern. Great display!

Oh my goodness, WAY too cute! Where are the plates from? My best friend had a pink/green party for her 22nd birthday- this would have been the perfect set up! Absolutely adorable : )
