Anyway, back to tablescaping. Pat set this year's Election table in a very traditional manner. As I said in a pervious posting, our family is quite unusual - we have equal numbers of Republicans as we have Democrats. It makes for "interesting" family gatherings at this time of the year.
Pat pulled out the Fiesta(ware) and set the table in traditional patriotic colors
Red, white, and blue.....Pat used "Scarlett," "White," and "Cobalt" Fiesta(ware.) Flatware is "Colonial" by Sakura.
Can you believe the red, white, and blue paisley material that Pat found for napkins?
Notice how Pat layered the glass rocks the same colors as the stack of plates.
The Democrats get these for favors......(FYI - Tim Kaine is never without his harmonica and often pulls it out to play for a crowd.)
