Raspberry, White and Black Tablescape



This week I am doing a raspberry, white and black table. I found the red Tracy Porter dinner plates at Savers for $2.99, about 75¢ each. They are solid so will be used in lots of tablescapes.




The raspberry and black table runner is one of my favorites, it is so much prettier than the photograph. I paired it with plain black napkins.



The charger plates are from TJMaxx or HomeGoods a few years ago. The white salad plates are Wedgwood Hedge Rose; I am using them as dinner plates here. The raspberry bowls are from a CTS giveaway that I was lucky enough to win back in 2010.



The iced tea/lemonade glasses I have had for a couple of years and the wine glass are ruby Indiana Diamond Point.



The flatware is Oneida Afterglow.



The centerpiece is a little silver compote with a robin's nest and a couple of black wooden candlesticks I have had for several years.




Thanks for visiting today...I do hope you will come back again.

I am joining a few parties this week, so hope you will come along with me.

Great table Marigene! The runner is fabulous!

Bunny Jean said...

Hi Marigene!

I noticed how all your dishes have a different raised pattern and it gives so much texture and interest to the place setting.

I am not sure I have seen your beautiful runner before and you didn't mention how you came by it. You are always finding the neatest stuff.

Thanks for joining the Bunny Hop this week!

I'm crazy about the runner! I have ever so many things that would work with it. If I were close by, you can bet I would be borrowing it.

Such a stunning color combination. Your diamond point glasses are fabulous. You can't get more elegant than red, white and black - the colors of evening wear!

Very pretty, Marigene! I love the pattern of the runner. Very sophisticated without being snobby. Although you could make it snobby, too, if you wanted! :-) Nice score on the Tracy Porter dishes!!!!!!
