Noritake Crestwood Platinum Tablescape

Elegant and simple, Crestwood Platinum is one of Noritake's most popular patterns. It has a wide, etched-like platinum trim that sets the plate off. Pat decided to use it this week for a more formal table for New Years Day.
Pat mixed stainless steel, platinum and "silver" with black. 

You can see the off-set silver place mat over the black one adding more interest

Flatware is black "San Remo" by Hampton Silversmiths

The napkin consists of a sheer white overlay on top of a silver colored one held together by a "laced" silver napkin ring

Here I cringe.....Noritake advertises that this pattern is "dishwasher safe".....

The charger is "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

The stainless steel drinkware is from Pier 1

Where it came from:
Silver and Black Square Place Mats - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond two years ago

  1. So pretty. I love the elegance of the black and silver and white. And I'm always excited when I see something I already own! In this case, the napkin rings. I got 8 of them at a garage sale for 50 cents about 5 years ago. Thanks so much for sharing your tablescapes each week. I always love seeing what you come up with! - Virginia

  2. All the layers of black and silver/platinum combine to make a beautiful table. Happy New Year!

  3. What a gorgeous table - I especially love the flatware and delicate napkin rings, but the Noritake china is also stunning!
