Where did all the Stars Go?

Once again my quilting hobby provided the inspiration for a table--this time by a star-studded table runner (actually two runners) for the center of this table. The runners are set atop a white tablecloth (which is really a bed cover. I can't remember if I wrote about how I acquired it in this blog or one of my others.). It looks like a lot of stars, but as the table progresses, the stars become less and less.

Just adding the chargers and dinner plates hide 4 of them. For this table I picked up on some of the different colors in the stars. I used the butterscotch chargers and blue plates to match the background of the runners.




Then I put a rust-colored salad plate atop.

For napkins I combined two--one gold and one rust-colored to tie in with the salad plate. They went into gold-colored glasses. My favorite place for the napkin is in the glass. It adds needed height to hte table.




My little outside the box item on this table is the addition of a string of red peppers and garlic to this live Christmas cactus. I needed to pull in more color than the green. I inserted the whole plant into a blue stoneware pot that is the same blue as the dinner plates.


Once it's finished, you only see one star atop each dinner plate.


Kinda makes me wonder why I put so much work into making all those star blocks!

You could put the plates on the white part of the table in between the runners so you can see more of your work. I think that would look good too. But, this is also a nice arrangement. There is so much to this table.
