Black and Yellow Table Setting


Black and yellow schemes seem to be popping up more lately in décor and I’m really loving the bright, crisp look.  Thus, I decided to get out my Audun dishes and set a fresh table for a spring dinner.

My dining table is an antique French trestle table, and is much more narrow than my previous table.  Old European tables are typically not as wide as our modern versions.  That’s o.k. with me because we eat buffet style with the food being set out in the kitchen.  But it does limit the amount of space I have in the middle of the table so I can’t put a lot of “stuff” out.

I styled a few different accessories for the center of the table.  I started with a set of faux scales that I picked up at Pottery Barn and used some beaded lemons for the top.
It really made a nice bold statement of color!

I especially love this plate set.  It is called “Audun” and is by Villeroy & Boch.

It depicts different toile themed scenes and you can mix and match which patterns you want.  If you notice in some of the photos, you will see there are different coordinating sets that I used.

“Promenade” is a black and white trellis on the rim.
“Fleur” is a plain wide banded yellow rim.
“Chasse” has a yellow banded rim with a hunt scene in the middle.
“Ferme” is a farm scene with a patterned rim.

The mugs have an idyllic farm scene all around the body.

I have matching cereal bowls and other serving pieces, but I didn’t drag them out!
Here is another favorite centerpiece of mine – a rustic votive candleholder.

It’s very slender and lends itself well to this table.

The placemats are by Ann Gish and actually have texture in the tone-on-tone pattern.

And, finally, I  tried a shabby candleabra.

I’ve had this piece for a while and took the crystals off for a no-fuss look.

I honestly don’t know which one I like best.

What do you think?

I’ll have to decide…

Can’t wait to do the Easter table!!!

On another note, I’m leaving for Lexington this morning for the Bluegrass Trust Antique & Garden Show.  It’s a fabulous annual event.  I’m attending the Preview Party and Gala tonight then going to the luncheon tomorrow featuring Suzanne Kasler as the speaker!  I’ll tell you all about it next week.

Happy Decorating,
Kim
