Celebrating Women Veterans Table

This week's table is set to celebrate and thank all of the women Veterans of the United States. Pat set a more formal table in red, white, and blue with accents of silver.

Noritake "Reina" has a delicate band of white on white flowers and leaves with a thin platinum trim

Pat found these gorgeous diamond cut goblets at Ross several years ago (naturally called "Lady Diamond")

Pat made red, white and blue paisley napkins specifically for this Lady Veteran's Table

Flatware is sleek "Sculpt" by Lenox

Even the vases are "Lady Diamond" by Cristal D'Arques

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday: "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:

A Shameless Plug:  Please join us on our other tablescaping blog, "Table for One," designed for the person eating alone:  Here.  And during the first 25 days of December, we set a different table everyday featuring some of our Santa Claus collection and assorted dinnerware.


  1. What a great idea for a table! It's nice to take a break from an autumn theme, and with Veteran's Day coming up this table is a good reminder that women as well as men serve in the military. I love paisley, so of course I love those napkins. I always look forward to all of your table settings on both blogs, but those December Santa tables are so much fun! Hard to believe that the year is almost over, though - how did it go by so fast?

  2. Beautiful table! Those stars and stripes plates are stunning. I love visiting both blogs, and I'm looking forward to your December tables.

  3. Well done! I love the idea of honoring our women veterans and your table is perfect : red, white and blue for the patriotic colors and enough crystal, paisley and flowers to make it clear our military women are being remembered! Thank you for sharing this very special space. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
