French Chef Tablescape

Time to say "Goodbye" to Germany (and Oktoberfest) and move on to France. Pat was in Redding last weekend to run/walk a marathon with her daughter and granddaughter, and while she was there, she managed to check out a few thrift stores. She found some great plates that she purchased and brought back to my house. In less than an hour, she had a new tablescape on the table. (Fortunately, I have an unfinished room above my garage that we store Christmas decorations and other "supplies" for holidays. Pat was able to gather some items from one of her previous Christmas theme trees to use for the centerpiece.)

Over view of the table

Meet Pierre, the French chef.

Close up of the place setting.

No water glass.....Pat used three different kinds of wine glasses.

There are four different scenes - each one features Pierre.

Pat use a black Waechtersbach over-sized dinner plate as an additional charger.

A white coupe-shaped charger was the foundation.

You can barely see the beautiful black Depression glass candle holder.

The star of the show - Pierre. The checks of his apron match the rim of the dinner plates.

Pat designed the name card holders. She used wine corks and hot glued them together.

One last look.
