So this week, Pat used the very "expensive" lacquer chargers that cost me twenty cents more than I should have paid for each of them. Pat selected glasses and napkin overlays to match. Then she chose an accent plate that set the whole place setting off. I think the table looks perfect.
Over view of the table
Close up of the place setting
Pat chose an elegant gold plated flatware to go with the dinner plate
The five piece place setting
A white napkin surrounded by a green overlay is held by a gold and pearl napkin ring
The green glass is almost the same color as the charger
First layer of the place setting is the gorgeous metallic peacock accent plate from Pier 1
The dinner plate is "Mansfield" by Lenox
Ah Ha!!!!! The very "expensive" green lacquer charger that started it all............
The napkin ring is from Pier 1
Pat made two small arrangements for each side of the larger one
The extra large arrangement is flanked by gold hurricanes.
Pat put the arrangement on a green charger topped with a gold plate
The small arrangements were made in matching gold bowls. Pat placed each of them on a white plate (to coordinate with the big arrangement) and then on a gold salad plate
These fragile gold color votive holders are from Pier 1 last Christmas
One last look from the other end of the table

Before I end, The Tablescaper is celebrating her fourth Blog-a-versary on June 2, 2013. As part of her "Seasonal Sundays," she is hosting another "Where Do You Keep It All?" party. As EVERYONE who knows me knows, I adore her. She is my absolute hero and those are my favorite ever blog postings. With any luck (and courage to expose myself to the world) I am finally going to join her party. So....family, my apologies to you. Yes, I am going to let the secret out. I will be free. Hold your head up high and tell your friends and in-laws "Oh, that's just the crazy Aunt with all the dishes we told you about." And Alma - thank you once again.
