Black, White, and Lime Green Tablescape

For Mother's Day this year, I did the tablescape and my daughter brought over a lovely salad bar  lunch for my mother and myself. 

The goblets are clear glass with black glass stems and bases. 

The placemats are from Pier One as are the little green plates. 

My mother made the pretty napkins, and has been hand hemming all the napkins I give her! She says they look better than on the machine. 

Sitting on the black plates are little black glass salad plates, I picked up at a garage sale.

A simple centerpiece of Michael's little green birds and a birdcage. 

My daughter made homemade potato rolls to go with our salad bar, and they were still warm!

I had my choice of dessert, and I wanted her chocolate chip cookies. She makes them without eggs, so less cholesterol. No one ever knows there are no eggs. They are great! She also makes a light, nice dressing using this:

The recipe is simple:
1/4 cup of Ponzu Lime
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. sesame oil

The green and black are so beautiful together. Love the green plate. How nice of your mother to do some sewing for you. I have never seen that Kikkoman Ponzu before; I will keep my eyes out for it. Joni

This is a very original tablescape. The greens are so nice. I use a lot of green in my house and the black just sets it off.
Wonderful way to spend the day.
