Part of the inspiration for my table this week came from one of my favorite blogs, Nancy's Daily Dish...we have the same glassware. I hadn't thought to put the two together until perusing her blog last week. Yes, I did copy her! I knew I was going to do a mainly purple table and they just seemed to complement the salad/dessert plate which has purple, green, orange, gold and brown in it.
I started with an ecru lace tablecloth and wicker chargers. I then layered a plain purple dinner plate, from The Better Homes and Gardens bought last year at Walmart, on sale of course; this I used as the charger plate. The next layer is a plain white dinner plate, Homer Laughlin White Dover, then a dark brown rimmed salad plate by Sterling, which I think is a type of restaurantware. Finally the top plate, which I am using for dessert, is another Better Homes and Garden from Walmart last year.
I found the purple, orange and gold napkins at Savers back last year after Thanksgiving and scooped them up. The beige flatware is from World Market.
The centerpiece is the vintage Red Cliff tureen in the Grape pattern found on eBay for less than $25. It didn't have the underplate with it, so I have used one from one of my other white grape patterned tureens, which is nowhere near as ornate as the original. I have seen this tureen priced for over $400 on Amazon and eBay! The purple candles are just sitting on little purple bread dipping plates. The urns are from thrift stores, probably Goodwill.
Thanks for taking the time to visit tonight. Hope to see you again, soon!
