Shadow Iris Tablescape

I have to admit that I have never seen any tablescapes using Corelle dinnerware. Maybe I just missed them or possibly no one would ever admit to owning the wildly popular, inexpensive, and nearly unbreakable dishes. Well, Pat has to be different. She was given a set of "Shadow Iris" Corelle by Corning as a joke to see if she could come up with a place setting. She had to buy a few additional pieces to complete the set but accepted the challenge with enthusiasm. 
Using two chargers in bright colors, Pat brought some intensity to the pale iris on the plate

Flatware is sleek "Queensgate" by J. A. Henckels

The first charger is a "Meadow" Fiesta(ware) chop plate by Homer Laughlin
The bottom charger is an inexpensive lacquer charger spray painted purple in plastic adhesive spray paint to match the napkins
Glassware is "Sensa" by Scott-Zwiesel
Pat didn't use a cup and saucer but I wanted to show it

The simple centerpiece is composed of three small arrangements of silk flowers and candles

From the other end of the table
