It's time for another visit to Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Thank you for hosting my favorite meme, Susan. Please make sure you go to her blog so you may enjoy all the other tables this week.
I will also be joining Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for Rednesday this week.

The inspiration for the table this week are the salad/dessert plates that I "borrowed" from the local ARC Thrift Store, where I volunteer on Wednesday afternoons. What an experience...one day I will do a post on it.
I decided to not use a tablecloth or placemats, no special reasoning, there. I started with 4 silverplated trays. Have you ever tried to find four with the same rim pattern at the thrift stores? It has taken almost two years to find them. To them I added red Waechtersbach dinner plates. The salad plates are Cypress Home, each has a different red floral arrangement. The last layer is the little red appetizer plate, which were made by Syracuse China.
I decided to use amber iced tea glasses as the background on the salad plates is sort of a light amber color. I also used a clear wine stem.
The flatware is Oneida Afterglow that I have used numerous times.
There is nothing blossoming in my garden except sedum, so that is the centerpiece this week. I flanked it with silverplated candlesticks.

I would like to thank everyone that stops by and especially those leaving a comment. It is very much appreciated.
