Girls Night Out Challenge

Cuisine Kathleen (Here) is having another fun Spring challenge this Wednesday. The theme is "Girls Night Out." Pat jumped at the chance to use a set of accent plates that we have had for a long time and never got around to using them:
If the guys can have a night out to play cards, why can't the girls? We just do it a little fancier.....

Red mesh was used as placemats under the place settings. To avoid covering the accent plate, Pat placed the napkin under the Charger.

The place setting

Flatware is my very favorite  stainless - "Fluence" by Oneida. It's sleek and modern. 

Accent plates are "Casino Royale" by American Atelier

The dinner plate is red "Fun Factory" by Waechtersbach

One of the most used pieces in our "arsenal" of dishware - black "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

"Jet Black" by Artland Glass Company was the perfect choice to add a touch of class to poker....

Each small bowl held extra chips

One last look from the other end of the table
