Black, Silver and White Tablescape

I've had the dining room table sitting half finished for about five days. I was too busy sewing over the weekend to finish it. I am creating a table around one of the runners I recently finished.

In just a short time,


it went from this,




to



this. Each place setting is a black octagon dinner plate and a milk glass salad plate atop a silver charger.

I love how the star candle created this shadow. I have alternated white stars with silver rose candles (because I only had 2 star candles). I would have used all stars because they work so well with the 3 big star candles. I used quite a few big chunky white candles down the length of the runner.


A combination of white and black stemware was used.


I like to make sure all my guest are comfortable, so I used reclining dining chairs.

Just kidding! I tilted them back to get a better shot.

The napkin is a very formal crisply-ironed white linen with beautifully-detailed edges.

These candlesticks normally hold tapers, but today I wanted the chunky look.
An octagon coffee cup will hold the coffee or tea poured from these family silver pieces from the 1950's. I usually like to do fun contemporary-type tables, but this time I went more formal and traditional.

This is the first of my trio of new runner tablescapes.

I've made three table runners in the past couple of weeks. Here are the other two that I plan to use.


I bet the next two tables will look quite different than the traditional, calm, serene, one of today's post.

As always you are in for a treat discovering table artists at Susan's place.

Very chic tablescape; black and white are my all time two favorite color combos. Ask anyone, I wear it almost daily...lol!!!! I've been planning on a blk/wht tablescape and now I know how beautiful it can be.
The star shadow is a lovely touch!

Ready for a black tie affair.

Blondie's Journal said...

I really like this tablescape a lot. It looks as if it could be for a black tie affair! The details are just stunning; the napkin fold, the flowers etched on the wineglasses, the candle combinations, the reclining chairs...Ha ha, you really had me there! :-)

I'm glad I had this opportunity to visit your blog. I'm sure I will get a lot of inspiration when I visit again!

Have a great day! :-D

I love your table. I love the black/white/silver color combo. And the silver tea set is fabulous. I want me some reclining dining chairs!!! Too funny.

Robin said...

:-D
I thought you were serious about the reclining chairs.
My husband would be so into that. I think any man would opt for reclining chairs at the dinner table. It surprising they haven't come up with it. ;-)

Anyway.....
Your tablescape is fabulous.
I love everything about it.

Hope your day has been beautiful

Brenda Kula said...

Oh hon, I use to quilt, and I know how hard those runners are to make after sewing many a quilt and patchwork project. You set a most lovely table. Your guests must feel very privileged to sit down to one of your dinners!

Wow, this is stunning!

stormcloud said...

Lol, tilting chairs would be a great thing to have for real, though! Then again, maybe it would make people even more unprofessional at the dinner table *sigh*

This tablescape is breathtaking :O I thought from the preview picture that it was going to be simple, but then you go and surprise me. I love the before and after effect! And what an effect! I would absolutely LOVE to eat at such a table! It even makes me want to mind my manners. Not that they're bad!

Wow, these tablescapes keep amazing me. That's why I like coming here. You do them so well, I can't help but feel at home! Each one makes me wonder about the dinner and the reason they came into being, they all have such personality! I also like to see all the different effects and what they make me feel. Tablescapes can make somebody feel casual, elegant, adventurous . . . anything! Thanks for the fun blog ^_^
