A few weeks ago I found some black stemware so that was part of the inspiration for this week's table.
I thought about using a white tablecloth, but decided it would look too formal, so just went with a plain black acrylic charger and layered from there.
The other part of the inspiration came in the form of the black and white dinner plates. Actually I was going to use my Royal Stafford Hayride, but my sister, Judy, surprised me with 4 Spode Archive Collection dinner plates that came in the mail last Friday.
The soup plate is Johnson Brothers topped with a black cotton napkin gathered in a yellow napkin ring.
The flatware is Oneida Louisiana.
The glassware is a black water glass and a black-stemmed wine glass.
The centerpiece is a bright yellow tureen flanked by black wooden candle holders. The black salt/pepper shakers are actually sterling, which I found at the local thrift store last week, marked at 25¢ each! I haven't cleaned them up, yet. One of the volunteers thought they were plastic they were so shiny!
Thank you for visiting today, it is really appreciated. Do come back again.
