My latest table challenge was this recently completed table runner.
I decided a light blue tablecloth would set it off nicely.
I chose these vintage olive green dinner plates -
Madeira pattern from Canonsburg Pottery Company. I would guess they were made in the mid 1950's. I am a sucker for solid color dinner plates with intricate rims. This ornate basket weave embossed rim fits the bill. They worked nicely atop cranberry chargers.
A cranberry salad plate completes the setting.
I bought these rather drab olive green napkins earlier in the year.
They work perfectly with the Maderia plates. Once again I've used the big cranberry red goblets. They work with so many of my tables.
For a centerpiece I used the money plant (lunaria) and the silver branches I had on the top of my Christmas tree (I love to recycle!). I just went outside and cut a few sprigs of cedar (an advantage of living the country life) and attached some red cardinals--very quick and easy.
This runner makes a nice table for a cold winter day.
Happy Halloween - Here it is Halloween 2015 and I have done absolutely Nothing! No table, no Halloween décor...............so sad......................... Last Halloween...
