Since school just started this month in our area, Pat decided to do a tablescape that represented many of our local high schools. She set each place setting with a different school color theme. (Unfortunately, two of the high schools have the same colors so she used the local University as one of the place settings.)
Overview of the table.
Pat decided not to use place mats. She put the plates right on the light maple tabletop.
Eureka Senior High School - school colors are red and green. Home of the "Loggers." Pat used a Shamrock green Fiestaware dinner plate with a red coupe plate by Waechtersbach.
Rival McKinleyville High - Home of the "Panthers." School colors are red and black. Both plates are by Waechtersbach.
Fortuna High School's colors are white and blue. Pat used a simple white coupe plate from Target and a cobalt blue Fiestaware luncheon plate.
Tiny South Fork High in Southern Humboldt County - school colors are blue and gold. Pat used a gorgeous gold plate from Pier 1 and a cobalt blue Fiestaware luncheon plate.
St. Bernard's High School's colors are white and green. Pat used a white coupe plate from Target and Shamrock green Fiestaware luncheon plate.
Little but powerful Ferndale High School - colors are red and white. Simple coupe plate from Target and red coupe Waechsterbach plate make up the place setting.
Last - but not least - Humboldt State University. Home of the "Lumberjacks." School colors are green and gold. Pat used a Shamrock green Fiestaware dinner plate and gold salad plate from Pier 1.
