This Tablecloth Speaks For Itself

I'm somewhat addicted to tablecloths. I bought a tablecloth on eBay recently that I couldn't resist. It's so BRIGHT. So CHEERFUL. So LOUD!
The cloth matched the glasses I've owned for more than 20 years.
I decided plain dishes would work best on this busy cloth. Side note: In this photo, notice how the glass blends right into the cloth?
As the centerpiece, I decided to display a few vintage flower frogs on a hammered aluminum two tier tray.
This table makes me happy. How does it make you feel?
