Labor Day (the first Monday in September) is observed by Americans to celebrate the contributions and achievements of American workers. Through picnics, parades, and parties, Americans come together to give praise to laborers around the country who make America strong. So, each year, we set a table to show our appreciation to the workforce that gives so much.

This year, the table features carpenters and painters. Pat started with a napkin that she made in yellow and black. She then used yellow and black Waechtersbach dishware - it's sturdy design is perfect for the table. Here's what she came up with.
Overview of the table.

The place setting.

Hammered handles add the right touch to a worker's table.

The napkin ring consists of two rings with a screwdriver in matching color.

Simple black water goblet and a bottle of beer - the perfect beverage.

The charger is black Color Spectrum by Mikasa.

Naturally, the centerpiece had to be a tool box.
