This time of the year I base my tables on what is blooming in my garden.
Red and pink dahlias were looking good today, so that is what I designed this table around. I decided to use my floral tree vases. Anybody remember these?
They were pretty popular when they came out a couple decades ago. They stack up and you just stick a flower or two in each hole.
After I did the bouquet, I decided a pink tablecloth would be nice. I added Burgundy chargers and then started looking for the place setting pieces.
I don't have any solid red dinner plates, so I chose one with a Burgundy pattern, topped with a pink plate and a black octagon salad bowl.
Then I added red and pink glasses.
I decided to use a pink napkin . At first I tried in in the black salad bowl, but I liked it better in the red glass. The red wine glass is pretty formal and I though this fringed edge napkin added a bit of playfulness.
I decided to use a red candle for the top of my centerpiece.
Then I added a few small red/white votives,
which completed this dinner table.
Happy Halloween - Here it is Halloween 2015 and I have done absolutely Nothing! No table, no Halloween décor...............so sad......................... Last Halloween...
