Pictures of Elvis in a hot pink shirt were the inspiration for this week's table.
Over view of the table
Betty Boop can be seen in the background wearing a pink Boa to match the table
The place setting - black faux leather placemat, hot pink charger, black/white dishware, and hot pink napkin
Pat used black glassware (for the very solemn occasion) from Artland Glass Company
Flatware is called "Everyday" by Reed and Barton
The candle holder is black Depression glass
For the centerpiece, Pat made five small arrangements in black goblets and then placed them together in the center of the table. She raised the middle arrangement slightly using a small bowl turned over.
There, you can see him better.......
One last look from the other end of the table
Sorry the picture of the picture is not clear, but the ones on the table looked great. They were lovingly enlarged and reproduced for us by Pat's very talented and creative husband (who generously helps us all the time)
Ahhhhhh...........Elvis in hot pink. Be still, my beating heart.
