Layered Table Runners

I created this tablescape in an attempt to bring some additional color to my blue and white décor scheme on the screened porch.
The floral runner was a scrap of fabric leftover from a sewing project so I just hemmed the edges. Then  I decided it would look nice with a pink border but I didn’t want a permanent pink border so I stitched up another runner in pink that was slightly larger than the floral runner. My thought was if I could layer dishes, I could also layer runners.
Next I added pink napkins.
There is enough blue in the floral print runner to coordinate with the blue and white chair cushions.
I am not a big butter eater, but I love the individual covered butter servers. I envision these filled with pickles, salsa, or sauce to accompany the meal.
Pink spray roses were picked up at the grocery store. I added a little sprig of asparagus fern for greenery.
The big lantern stays on the table all of the time and I brought the mercury glass votives from the inside table.
Now we’re ready for food and friends!
I’ll be linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Don't you love a pop of PINK in a room? I gives it such power and life. Your runner is lovely and that was a good idea to layer them. Love the way you stacked the dishes and your centerpiece is lovely. Blue is my favorite color and it seems as if any color will coordinate with it.
