Using one of my round tables outdoors, I used a white cloth, some netting and a black vase for the centerpiece.
The flowers consisted of hydrangeas from my yard and a bouquet I bought from Kroger for added color.
Plates and matching bowls were purchased at TJ Maxx. The black salad plates are Pier 1, but I got them at the thrift store!
I took this pic upside down to show you the monogram on the flatware. It's a C, I believe, and the silverplate is Alvin. I was told it was made around 1925. I intend to give it to my daughter, as her name begins with the letter C.
The napkin rings are also vintage, they are pewter. After a good cleaning, I saw an engraving of 'Baker'. I'm assuming this was a monogram? Or manufacturer? I have no idea, I just thought they were pretty cool. I have some others with different designs, several different floral designs and a few with a design of a night scene--stars and moon. Candleholders are vintage and I believe are the candlewick pattern. I purchased them at a thrift store.
I used double napkins, a celadon green and black linen.
Black stems are Martha Stewart, I think, and were purchased at Macy's.
The salt cellars are vintage, and the place card plates are the kind you can write on and then wipe off. The names on the plates are the names of my mother and her three sisters--Elizabeth (my mom), Adeline (she was called Joyce), Gloria, and Corinne (she was called Lucy or Sissy).
Here are a few more shots...
And with candlelight...
