Casual Mikasa Silk Flowers Tablescape

 Pandemic. Pandemonium. Perfidiousness. Prevarication. Presidents.....What a week this has been - no matter what "side" you are on. It's been a wild ride outside.....Pat just wanted to set an easy, casual table that made her feel good to look at and to feel calm and safe. She chose Mikasa"s "Silk Flowers" (a set of dishes for ten that we got at the ridiculously low price of $10 at the Cancer Society's thrift shop a few years ago) and went to work. 
Pat mixed pink and teal (using the colors from the dinnerware) and a rustic place mat to add interest

Flatware is glossy "Addison" by Mikasa

Love the shape of the cup and saucer
Glassware is from Pier 1 two years ago

Naturally, Pat made an arrangement of "silk flowers" for the centerpiece
The Ultra Marine "Swirl" candle holders by Jeannette Glass Company are part of our Depression glass collection

One last look from the other end of the table

  1. Beautiful table and wonderful green glasses! Happy 2021!

  2. I surely wish I could shop the places you do, you find the best deals! This is a lovely, serene and calm table. Pretty colors and pretty flowers. Stay safe and well!
