Most Tablescape bloggers are posting Memorial Day tablescapes this week, but, naturally, we have to do something different (especially since we are planning to post three to four Independence Day tablescapes in July.) This week, our table is a make-over of one of Pat's Christmas tables last year without the Santa/Christmas theme. I loved the silver/crystal look of that table and wanted to try it. Disaster is the only word to describe it. Luckily, Pat came to the rescue. She added a few things - deleted others. I think it works now.

Overview of the table - black, white, silver and crystal with just one red rose. The place setting was gorgeous.

Just another view.

A close up of the individual place setting shows the colors (or lack of colors) better.

Clear and sparkling Lady Diamond crystal by Cris d'Arques and black martini glasses go well.

The small cloche can also be used as individual butter holders.

Multi-faceted votives show up even better on a mirror tile.

King James by Oneida silverplate flatware is highly polished (thanks Pat) to reflect the light.

Close up of the crystal napkin ring.

The tall clear crackle votives sit on mirrors. Pat has three sets - five in a set of different heights.

The rim of the plate is beautiful.

Betty was dressed in faux silver and crystal earrings with a white Boa.

Oh - a "heads-up" for the next few weeks.....Pat just got back from visiting her daughter in Redding and did she hit the bargains!!!! No telling what the tables will look like in June. A word of warning: the daughter has the same dish disease as the mother.
