Calla Lilly Table

Have you ever had one of those days when you started to do a certain tablescape only to totally and completely wind up with something else? That's what happened to Pat and me this week - what started out with a Bordallo Pinheiro "Geranium" table morphed into Fitz & Floyd "Calla Lilly" somehow. It went from bright, cheery, and casual to darker, more serious, and slightly glamorous. Don't really know how it happened, but it happened......
The table

Pat placed the napkin under the setting so that it would not conflict with the accent plate
Close up of the place setting - Pat recently purchased the Slate Dansk "The Burb"s dishware from Tuesday Morning after she instantly fell in love with it.

Flatware is Black "San Remo" by Hampton Forge





We've used these gold placemats dozens of times - still one of our favorites




When Restoration Hardware got "too big" for our little community as it's headquarters several years ago, it closed the original store - much to our dismay, but everything in the store was on sale - including these gorgeous gold ornaments.

Black tea lights left over from Halloween
