Wise Owl Tablescape

Some people started the New Year off with a supper of black eyes peas to bring them good luck. We started the New Year sharing a meal with the wise old owl to bring us wisdom and serenity. (Don't really know if it will work.....but it makes a great tablescape.)

Once again, Pat pulled together items from around my house to make a beautiful and unique table. She found the owls in a curio in a back bedroom and took the colors from them. Then, as I fixed lunch (yeah, I'm not the talented one.....but I can fix a killer salad), Pat began to "create" the tablescape using the odd color combination of blue and rust.  And it looks great.

The place setting
First layer of the place setting is the beautiful dual napkins and rust colored napkin ring
Paprika colored Fiestaware by Homer Laughlin is a perfect choice
The dinner plate/charger is teal stoneware from Pier I
The shiny stainless flatware is "Image" by Spode
Here's a look at the entire 5-piece place setting - it's gorgeous
Pat chose a paprika Fiestaware bread and butter plate
I love this napkin ring- another Pier I find
Clear water and wine goblets are inexpensive glass from the Dollar Store
Amber candle holders are Depressionware glass
The wise old guy that started it all..................
Pat chose amber votives to add more color to the table
