This table started as just black and silver.
I thought it needed a color punch, so I changed to pink salad plates and pink glasses. Then I rolled a smaller pink napkin inside the black linen napkin.
There--now we have a little pizzaz!
I had a tough time trying to make a centerpiece. I can't wait until my flowers start producing. About mid July I have no shortage of materials for centerpieces. In the meantime, I decided that these dried allium seed heads from last year's garden would do just fine with the addition of a few curly sprigs of twigs.
With the addition of pink, I could use one of my quilted star table runners.
It's nice to have a secondary hobby (quilting) that complements my table setting hobby. I can make all sorts of one of a kind items for my tables.
I always love sparkle.
I am taking these pictures very early in the morning and the color does not always come out true with the camera flash. Have you ever noticed that?
I like to drape a can light over a chair and use it for extra brightness. If I use a couple of these lights I don't even need to use the flash.
The silver wine glass would be used for one of these mini desserts I showed in a previous post.
I would have the desserts in the goblets when the guests arrived. After they sat down, they would simply move it to the side and their napkin would be available to place in their lap. I like settings to be functional. I would not place a silver wine glass in the center of a setting if it had no part in the dinner service.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy all of the other tables today.
