Steve bought me these beautiful Spode dishes at Coscto before Christmas and they were my inspiration for this tablescape...a black, white, and silver theme. I was thinking icy-snowy-cold January..although we're having a heatwave here in Northern California--with the highs of 67!!
The table runner, candles and placemats were after-Christmas sale of 80% off! Don'tcha just LOVE a good deal!?
The etched glass antique glasses were my mom's....I remember her using them at her dinner parties when I was young...the wine glasses are Waterford Crystal that I got at a GARAGE SALE--another great deal--too cool! ;-)
The 'jewels' sprinkled on the mirror-stand were purchased at Big Lots...and I used silver napkin rings to hold tea-light candles...they fit perfectly!
Here are a couple close-ups of the tea-light/napkin ring holders
I loved how some of you gals placed your napkins on the plates so I'm stealing, I mean, borrowing your idea! The jeweled embellishment are Christmas ornaments...again at 80% off!
I just hooked them on the napkin ring for a little extra glitz--a technique I learned from my sister-in-love, Kathleen. The plates sits on plastic black chargers I picked up at the Thrift years and years ago. I am going to have so much fun with these beautiful plates..mixing them with various colors!
So there ya go...be sure to check out the other gals that are playing along....they have such marvelous ideas!
Have a wonderful day!
