Black & Gold tablescape

As we are still experience "untypically cold" weather here in Florida - I am so ready for spring, sunshine and warmth. The black & gold came to me as I am thinking cold - but wanting warmth..
The dinnerware is a "Home Trends" edition, pick it up at a thrift store for $3 for the 2 piece, 4 settings. Placed on a black placemat with a lacey napkin folded at an angle to break up the black and bring out the strands of gold on the plate.

The pillar candle holders were a win from a giveaway from fellow blogger "Starting Over" - I placed black pillar candles on them (In the pics they look blue).

Placed a sprig of yellow daisy and a candle wrapped with a black napkin in the apothecary jar - and danced a gold ribbon around.
The silverware was another great find - Wm Rogers 1941 silver, "Gardenia" pattern. I purchased off Craig's List - 66pcs in original silverware box $20.
This was a fun tablescape but I am looking forward to warmer weather - once "spring is in the air" then I can bring it in and put it on the table.
