Green, Green Green

I was in the mood for something springy indoors, to go along with all the lovely springiness outside.  I chose an (unmarked) Fallani and Cohn Lily of the Valley tablecloth with matching napkins, and a selection of HLC pottery for the table in a whole array of greens.  The centerpiece is from Pier1 and I repurposed votive holders into napkin rings.

Once I was finished, I hosted a game on Facebook, guessing the number of different HLC greens featured on this table.
What do you think?

The question posed in my contest was:  How many HLC colors do you see represented in the pottery on the table?  The answer is:  Twelve.   Here's a rundown of the colors you see and on which pieces of dinnerware they appear.  Harlequin nut dish: Spruce
vintage Fiesta dinner plate: Turf
P86 Buffet plate:  Shamrock
P86 square salad:  Lemongrass
P86 bread plate:  P86 Chartreuse
P86 tripod bowl:  Juniper
P86 bread plate:  Evergreen
vintage 5 1/2 fruit bowl: Medium Green
Vintage bulb candle holders: original green
P86 hostess bowl:  Sea Mist
Vintage coffee pot base:  Forest
Vintage coffee lid:  Vintage Chartreuse

The winner of the contest, by the way, is Kathy H., and she can expect a special springy surprise to arrive in the mail  next week!   Congratulations, Kathy!
