Anyway, here is what we came up with using just some of Trev's Bordallo Pinheira Cabbage collection:
Over view of the table
Close up of the place setting
Pat "had to use" these tiny vegetable bowls - they measure less and 4 1/2" across
Both Trev and Pat wanted to use the round salad plate even though we were using the crescent-shaped salad bowls on the table
The dinner plate measures 10 1/2" across
Trev wanted to use some of his collection of Waterford glassware - I said no. He fought - I won. I was so afraid that a glass might break.......so he had to settle for my glassware.
I wished this photographed better - this is absolutely beautiful sterling silver. Simple. Elegant.
The five piece place setting - "Grand Colonial" by Wallace
Trev and Gary have dozens of different piece of Bordallo. This is one of my favorites - the crescent salad plate
The butter pat
No argument here - both Pat and Trev wanted to use the soup tureen as the centrepiece. Trev has the cream soup bowls and liners to match
Covered mayonnaise dish and ladle
Individual covered tureen
Trev wanted to use his sterling candle holders. Pat wanted brown candle holders. I wanted to use crystal candle holders. My table................I won the argument. They chose the sage green candles.
