Not much time for chatting, so I'll get right to it. Neither my garden nor the weather has been cooperating. I wanted to tablescape outside this week, but never got the opportunity. So a kitchen setting it is, sorta rushed, but I like black, white, and red. I used these colors in a Christmas tablescape that you can see here, and I actually like wearing these colors. So here we go!
Table runner was a recent purchase at TJ Maxx. The votive candleholder in the center was a recent gift from my son, who purchased it in Sweden. It is Orrefors, blown glass, and it's very beautiful!
The place setting consisted of a black somewhat square plate, a white Haviland china scalloped dinner plate, a black and white salad plate (Ambiance by Roscher), and a Martha Steward bowl with red stripe.
Flowers are knock out roses from the backyard. I put them in a black and white bowl atop a black wire cake stand.
The black and glass candleholders are from Home Goods. I placed a black and white ball on top of another candleholder, and used the others along the runner.
The wine glasses have a red tint in the stem. I used plain iced beverage glasses.
I used plain white bowls at the head of the table.
Lighting the candles...
After I saw these pictures, I decided there was too much greenery in the floral, so I pulled some out.
Looks a bit better.
White scalloped plates are Haviland Limoge (don't know the pattern name). Silverplate is Rondevu by Towle.
