White Against Red
I finally got all the Christmas taken care of, just in time to be hit with a nasty chest cold. I was flat in bed for 3 days, but am feeling so much better now. I also found a few minutes to go through dishes...the local thrift store was thrilled to be the recipient of three huge loads that found a way onto their shelves. Now to weed out some glassware and linens...
I didn't have a color theme picked out for this week's table. I just wanted something bright and cheery. I have had this red and white tablecloth for a couple years so decided it was time to use it or lose it!
Using all white dishes was pretty easy after looking in the dish cupboard. I started with a white metal charger plate made in Italy. To that I added a Gibson Regalia, circa 2004-present dinner plate. Next I added Johnson Brothers Snowhite Regency, circa 1968-2003 salad plate and rimmed soup bowl.
The red hemstitched linen napkin seemed to be a great match with the tablecloth.
I used clear stemware...both maker and pattern are unknown at this time. I need to take a couple days to look up some of the stemware I have...it seems like something always comes up when I think I have a few minutes.
The centerpiece is a white ironstone compote filled with lemons, red candlesticks topped with white candles.
The rim shot!
As I sat back looking at the table, it occurred to me that everything was purchased at a thrift store with the exception of the sterling flatware, candles and lemons!
Thank you for your visit today, hope you will return again...
I will be joining these parties and hope you will too!
