Another busy tablecloth to tame! I promise there are no more poinsettia tablecloths in the house.
The centerpiece are a pair of apple topiaries...notice the apples in the tablecloth, please. The candles are in clear red glass dishes sitting on a white pillar base to get them up off the table a little bit.
White, gold and plum seemed to be good colors to use this week. The iridescent plum napkins are held with a gold beaded circular napkin ring. The flatware is my favorite International Frontenac, circa 1903. It is quite ornate with lilies and entwined stems.
I started layering with a gold charger, adding an extra large dinner plate, which is being used just for show. The dinner and salad plate are from a set of Hutschenreuther. The cream soup and under plate are the top layer.
I was kind of stumped on what color glassware to use. I had thought of amber, but at the last minute decided on plum to tie in with the napkins and a clear wine stem.
