A blank canvas to start with
Pulling colors from those base napkins - added the lime green polka dot flower vases and the golden colored candlesticks in the hurricane lamps....
Needed some height so I added the tall candle holders to each corner w/a yellow candle; placed a simple silver candle holder in the center with a cluster of flowers in a silver holder - keeping it low profile in the center so that the people sitting across from each other can carry on a conversation without obstacles.
Now the dishes; these are Homer Laughlin ironstone; I love the lines and the high gloss glaze. I have been slowly putting this set together and have yet to find the cups - the cups in this setting are actually Pflatzgraff that have the same lines.
Add the silverware.....
The welcome sign was purchased several months ago at Hospice Thrift Store - $1; it has become a permanent fixture on this corner of the table - it is the first thing you see when you walk in the front door.
and now it is evening and the candles are a blaze!
