Pagoda Paradise In Pink & Green

Bold color. That’s what late summer calls for. We’re broiling right now here in the Midwest, and it’s taking its toll on my beautiful flower beds. (Dear Mother Nature, Please take note: This is Missouri, not Hell!🔥🥵) So if crippling heat wants to suck the life out of what I’ve created outside, I guess I’ll just have to compensate inside!

Our dining room, awash with shades of white punctuated with blue most of this summer, has been taken over by bright hues of pink and green.

The inspiration for this tablescape came in part from this gorgeous custom pillow made by Sew Gracious Monograms on Etsy. A pink pagoda is right up my alley! Thanks, Pam!

The other part of the inspiration came from a pair of these GORGEOUS tea towels from Nell Hills in Kansas City, MO, fashioned into a table runner. Because our dining room is decorated in blue and white, the addition of pink and extension of blue via the fabulous pagodas in the runner and pillows is fabulous!

Each place setting starts with a hot pink Bormioli Rocco “Inca” glass charger, followed by a Ralph Lauren “Mandarin” dinner plate rimmed in blue, a square white B. Smith plate, a Kate Spade for Lenox “Rutherford – Navy” salad plate, and is topped off with a Granny Smith green Mikasa appetizer plate from their “Daylight” collection. Sleek stainless Hampton Forge bamboo flatware, a citrusy crushed silk napkin cinched with a Z Gallerie parrot napkin ring, and simple stemware round out the setting.

I went REALLY big and showy on the floral pieces using a mix of beautiful fauxs that tower above and around the painted pink birdcage that (somewhat) resembles a pagoda. To give the birdcage a larger presence, I perched it atop a stack of natural (to break up the profusion of color a bit) bamboo trays. Large white Z Gallerie parrots stand sentry in front of the floral arrangements.

This is a wonderful and welcome departure from the staid wash of white we have enjoyed the last couple of months. My way of easing into the deeper jewel tones of fall which is fast approaching.

  1. Where do I begin? Fabulous! That birdhouse really knocks me out! I have one similar to that (I have a lot of birdcages because I love them), but mine is off-white. The pink is fabulous! And I am a fan of Bormioli Rocco, but I had no idea they made pink chargers. I love those! The flowers are over the top, but stunning, the napkin rings are wonderful. I would love to dine at this table.

  3. Good morning alycia! What a way to ease summer out with this drama table setting. The vibrant pink and green colors are stunning together. The pagoda bird cage(nice touch) and the placements are winners for me. I had to chuckle at your comment to mother nature lol.. it’s still piping here in SC.. can’t get nothing done outside. Anyway lady, stay cool and thanks for sharing another beautiful setting. I always smile when i see you in my inbox

  4. I love the idea of easing into autumn, especially with this cheery color combo. You always start the wheels turning. Now, I’m wondering what other season/occasion will work with the pagoda theme. Beautiful styling my friend!

  5. Enjoy decorating your table. Since I had to give in and put Jerry in the Nursing Home (Jerry calls it many names along with jail) it’s hard to fix pretty tables. I do try because it helps me want to fix something to eat. On Sunday I fix a small table at the nursing home outside and bring home cooked food he likes. They are in partial lock down. Hopefully after the first of the year I will look for a place in the KC. We would be closer to our doctors.

    The bright colors and beautiful home is an inspiration. I don’t have all the flowers I usually do but my plants on the deck are doing pretty good.

    Keep bringing us inspiration. We need it.
