Updated Heinrich "Sepia" Tablescape

Pat decided to challenge herself this week by using a somewhat nondescript set of German porcelain dinnerware that we haven't used in years and update it to add more color and style. By adding mirror place mats and red accents, the table becomes vivid and lively. 






The off-white porcelain plate has gray flowers and is trimmed in gold
Pat used a Depression Glass dinner plate to add more detail

The Chinese Red Charger is an inexpensive plastic charger (you can always find them at thrift stores and yard sales) spray painted with plastic-adhesive spray paint to match the glassware and flatware
Glassware is "Midnight Rouge" by Artland

The glitzy napkin ring adds lots of needed sparkle to the place setting
An assortment of glittery balls adds more "glam"
Where it came from:
Rectangular Mirror Place Mats - from Michael's years ago
Dinnerware - "Sepia" by Heinrich from a local antique store years ago
Red Glass Dinner Plate - Depression glass by Anchor Hocking from our collection
Chinese Red Charger - Inexpensive plastic charger spray painted to match glassware
Flatware - Red "San Remo" by Hampton Silversmith from Tuesday Morning ten years ago
Glassware - "Midnight Rouge" by Artland from Replacements,Ltd.
Napkin Rings - from Pier 1 ten years ago
Gray Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Centerpiece Gold and Red Balls - from Pier 1 six or seven years ago
Red Glass Candle Holders - from Ross several years ago

Totally Today Flamingo Tablescape

One of our favorite themes for tablescaping is "Pink Flamingo"  -  as you can tell by the number of flamingo tables that we have posted on the blog over the years. Pat thought it was time for another one....





This is my favorite flamingo-themed accent plate that we own. It's "Flamingo TT020" by Totally Today
Fortunately, we have a large assortment of Fiesta(ware) colors to "play" with when tablescaping. Pat used "Sage," "Chocolate," and "Rose" for this table


We found these goblets at Bed, Bath, and Beyond years ago


Where it came from:
Palm Tree Place Mats - from Tuesday Morning years ago
Palm Tree Stainless Steel Flatware - "Palm Tree" by Cambridge from Tuesday Morning eight or nine years ago
Palm Tree Flatware - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond eleven years ago
Assorted Dinnerware - "Sage," "Chocolate," and "Rose" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Macy's, Kohl's and Replacements,Ltd.
