As as promised last week, I am not going to mention water rationing or the fact that Los Angeles wasted 20 million gallons (yes, I said 20 MILLION gallons) of water in 3 1/2 hours because they did not turn a water leak off fast enough. Sorry, Pat, you still only get 50 gallons a day.......but I am not going to mention it this week........
So - think of clear skies, blue water, and lots of it....
Over view of the table
The place setting - Accent plates are "Signals" by American Atelier
Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings
The dinner plate is actually a rust color. It is called "Spice Route Paprika" from Pier 1
I love these odd glasses. They are called "Reflection" by Imperial Glass Company.
Pat used two luncheon napkins - rust and ivory held together by a "nautical" looking knot napkin ring
Pat didn't use the cup and saucer together on the table. However, she took the saucer and used it as a bread and butter plate.
Black lanterns flank the sailing ship
The slightly raised centerpiece sits on a soy milk carton covered in a black napkin and topped with a large net.
One of four different lighthouses - this one is "Cape Hatteras."
