To honor all the people who have been touched by cancer, Pat and I wanted to set the table in purple (quite a challenge since purple is not a color we have a lot of.)
Overview of the table.
Another full length view of the table.
The placemat is a metallic purple!!! But it looks really good on the purple table. (One of Pat's bargains - she got them for less than a dollar apiece a Pier I. I couldn't imagine what she was thinking at the time. Boy, was I wrong!)
Flatware is "April" Silverplate by Wm Rogers & Son.
Close up of the gorgeous Bell Heather cup and saucer by Royal Doulton.
The rims on the Dinner and Salad plate are stunning.
Royal Doulton made a variation of this pattern with a gold rim with the same name.
Heather is known as a sign of love, kindness, and hospitality.
Assorted white and purple heathers cut from my yard.
Close up of a real Bell Heather.
The purple metallic-like glass coordinates with the placemat. Both are from Pier I.
A very substantial crystal candlestick.
Just one of the crystal salt and pepper shakers on a tray.
You can see the detail of these cute napkin rings - another Pier I purchase.
Purple votives on a mirror look just right.
Betty dressed for dinner.
Couldn't resist another picture of the table.
