Black and White Checked Tablescape

No formality here - this week's table is a bit lively and casual with a feel of Winter to it. Pat used an older set of dinnerware that we bought years ago at Pier 1 from the sale shelf. (I'm still reeling from the news that our local Pier 1 is set to close this year - I just about cried when the assistant manager broke the news to Pat and me last Sunday. What a disaster....maybe not a disaster to the pocketbook but still a heartbreak....)



Pat started with leather-like place mats to add a touch of warmth to the table

Flatware is "Primary" by Noritake


This is a "White" Fiesta(ware) luncheon plate


Pat used a "White" Fiesta(ware) Chop Plate for a charger

Glassware is "Midnight Black" by Artland Glass Company

Winter Table in Black and Gray

Soup is on the menu for this week's tablescape. Pat used a favorite set of Pier 1 gray dinnerware that she found last year and paired it with black.
The minute Pat saw this set of dishes at Pier 1 last year, she knew that they would be hers......they have a satin finish with a unique slightly rounded up edge.



The place mat and matching napkin have a gray and tan paisley design. Pat doubled the napkin with a solid black one inside.

Flatware is glossy "Image" by Spode from Tuesday Morning several years ago






One of my favorite glasses - from Pier 1 many years ago


The candle holders are Depression Glass by L.E. Smith Company
