My mother loved shiny things as well, and she used to make Christmas tree ornaments from costume jewelry. I hope to feature them soon, as the holidays are right around the corner. Doesn't it seem that Christmas comes earlier every year? I haven't even gotten around to Halloween and Thanksgiving yet... if I could only get someone to help me get those boxes down. Hmmmm....
This week we are in the dining room! Yippeee! I can leave the table "dressed up" for a while!
I purchased these dishes in an antique shop many years ago.
The tablecloth is a white on white damask, and I found this grasscloth-like silver runner in Pier 1 a few years back. I love that it was long, and trimmed in black.
The centerpiece sits atop a silver mirrored cake stand, and is multi-tiered. The lower level is an arrangement made from white & pink grocery store roses, vinca and greenery from the yard. The upper level holds votive candles.
The china is Elegance by Fashion Royale.
The silver goblets were a Christmas gift to my mother from her sister and were purchased at Best Products.
The silver-trimmed napkins (from TJ Maxx) are doubled up with a shimmery silver napkin (Tuesday Morning). The crystal napkin rings were my mother's.
The crystal wines are Gorham, not sure of the pattern, but I found them at a consignment store and bought them because they were very similar to the crystal I picked out as a bride, which is Crown Point.
Crystal salt cellars were my Mom's and the silverplate flatware is Repousse (I'm not sure if that's the correct spelling)
A few table gems were added to reflect more light.
The crystal salad plates also came from my mom, but I don't know the name or manufacturer. Do you? I'll show you a close up of the etchings.
I guess it's time to light the candles...
Have a great week, thanks for coming by! Please leave a comment as I strive for A Perfect Setting!!
