24th tablescape - Clear Classic

Placing the table runner across the width as opposed to across the length gave two of the settings a placemat look.
Three huricane lamp candle holders for the centerpiece with just a splash of color from the flowers and ivy around each lamp.

Using a purple napkin wrapped in a white lacy napkin and an imperial silver napkin ring - pulling the purple from the flowers around the center/large hurricane lamp.
Each placesetting has a 10", 8", 6" clear plate and a clear embossed bowl.  The wine classes have clear ecthing.

Placed a few silver pieces on the table, silver butter server, tea service with sugar bowl & creamer.  Silver salt & peper shakers are at the center.

Candles are lite! Ready for dinner..

  1. Oh how pretty. I have some clear dishes I rarely use because I just can't make them work. You did a wonderful job. It's so classy and elegant with the light playing on all the glass. I love it! What an inspiration. Makes me miss my glass-topped table I left at my old house.

  2. Love all the sparkle from the glass and the silver! SO elegant! And the candlelight is glorious -- just lovely.

  3. I love the glow of this evening! You did such a nice job with this.

    Happy Tablescape Thursday!


    Sheila :-)

  4. I like the clear too. I always felt people would think it was too plain, but you have made it elegant and beautiful.

  5. What a pretty way you've set off your lovely table linens with your clear plates. I've used them several times over pretty paper plates to have "special china" -- so versatile.

  6. Wow, what an impact...candles and it!

  7. I love the looks of all the crystal in candlelight...very pretty!

  8. The glow of your table is wonderful! I like what you did with the napkins, too. The splash of purple is gorgeous with your table!

  9. Fabulously beautiful tablescape!!!! I love the clear crystal, the hurricanes, the pretty napkins. What a great table you've set.
