Another Oriental Table

Pat decided to challenge herself this week - she wanted to reuse some of the things from last week's table and see if she could come up with another Oriental table. We shamelessly started with "Entertaining Women" blogger Cherry Kay's Jadeite Lotus tablescape ( and went from there. Pat pulled out our collection of that gorgeous dishware and set about redoing the table. And am I glad she did!

So, we send our apologies to Cherry Kay for spending hours drooling over her tables and a heart-felt thank you for the inspiration to this week's table.
Over view of the table

The place setting

Flatware is "Windsong" Nobility by Oneida

Pat used black and pink glassware to carry through the color scheme

First layer of the place setting is the "Lotus" Jadeite bowl and salad plate/liner

The very coup/bowl like shaped dinner plate is "Ebony" by Johnson Brothers

Pat chose rose brocade napkins to match the pink/rose colored jade in the centerpiece

Pat added black ceramic chop sticks just in case anyone at dinner wanted to be "authentic"

Black tea lights in inexpensive votive holders

This is the pink and green jade centerpiece that Pat used for the theme colors

  1. This tablescape is beautiful. I love the color combination of the jadeite green with black and pink. I first noticed the flatware and how pretty it is and then I noticed the black chop sticks which I think is just perfect. Really a great tablescape.

  2. Love this...that jadeite is to die for. So pretty....

  3. Love the jadeite with the black - so pretty. The pick makes a lovely accent color.
