Rubber Ducky Spa Tablescape

With apologies to Ernie (the Muppet,) we set the table this week with his little buddy who makes bath time "lots of fun" - the rubber duck. Pat spotted them at Target last week and decided that very moment what the theme was for her turn at the monthly Ladies Luncheon table. (I told you she has a very "unconventional" sense of humor.)
Over view of the table

Pat paid homage to Sandra Lee - the floating duck in the Martini is just what she would do.......

The place setting

For the first layer, Pat used a bamboo placemat from Pier 1 as the basis for the place setting

A white Maryland China Company charger 

On top sits an orange Waechtersbach dinner plate

This is followed by a yellow Waechtersbach salad plate

White and yellow napkins are pulled through a wooden duck napkin ring

Close up of the flatware - modern style, satin finish with a polished circle on the handle

The five piece place setting

A wash cloth acts as a place card holder and spa gift for each guest
This great glassware is from Pier 1
This simple PVC pipe spray painted orange is the actual napkin ring
Frosted votive holders hold yellow votives
A huge bowl filled with the spa gifts and ducks for the guests acts as the centerpiece
Pat set the bowl on a large Sun Yellow Color Spectrum charger by Mikasa to show it off
Sweet white candle holders hold yellow candles
No spa table would be complete without floating rubber duckies in the bath
The stack
One of the "guests of honor".....
