Green Napkin Challenge

The last tablescape had a gorgeous striped brown and gold napkin - easy to work with and to set a nice table. Well......when I bought that material at JoAnn Fabrics, I found one that was so unusual and so old fashion looking. And of course, Pat and I did not have a dish to go with it. But I had to have it anyway. Pat set about making beautiful napkins from the fabric. Now, what to do with it????

Needless to say, Pat started to pull out dishes and glassware and came up with a fantastic tablescape. We affectionately call this our "Pier1 table" since all the dishes and two of the glasses were purchased there.
A close up of the vintage looking fabric that was the basis for this tablescape.

Overview of the tablescape.

The place setting.

Pat coupled the green napkin with a black one. She used a simple black napkin ring.

Black champagne glass ties the glassware to the black place setting.

The dishware has an unusual pattern.

The glassware also has an unusual pattern.

Flatware is King James by Oneida silverplate.

A small accent bowl from Waechtersbach adds some weight to the left side of the place setting.

This tall crystal candle holder is from Pat's collection.
