Winter Table

Pat switched course this week and set an early Winter table (even though today we had a record breaking high temperature for this time of year - over 75 degrees. Normally, even in Summer, here on the north coast of California, we rarely get above 65-70 degrees......)

We couldn't pass these plates up at Pier 1 this season. 

Pat used a black Fiesta(ware) chop plate as a second charger to add more interest

We found these glass chargers on the sale shelf at Pier 1 last year. Pat layered the napkin underneath since she did not want to distract from the place setting.

Another bargain from Pier 1, we have these silver trimmed goblets in a gold trim also.

  1. What a beautiful table! It is so refreshing to take a break from fall colors with your black and white tablescape. I have been eyeing those tree plates from Pier 1, but am trying very hard to resist buying them. You just made it much harder! I'm glad those glass chargers are from last year so that I don't have to try to resist getting them as well. I hope both of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. Holy majolie I love this table. I am trying not to buy any new dishes but boy oh boy those are calling my name. I may have to just drop by pier 1 this week.

    Gorgeous table!

  3. Lovely table! Those glass chargers are very similar to my Candlewick pieces, I should remember to use those plates as chargers occasionally. A great table to start the holiday celebrations.

  4. I have been eyeing-up these dishes recently at Pier 1. I love this table. Well done.

  5. Black and white always seems so elegant. Very nice.
