More Tables and Tips

This was probably my favorite plate at the table setting luncheon. It is just so lovely. You don't always need a whole set. Sometimes a mix is more interesting, although I would have used a dinner plate with a color from the salad plate instead of white, but the gold charger works very well.

This might be uncomfortable for some peoples religious beliefs, but for others, just go with me here. These religious pieces are beautiful, perhaps use them for Easter or Christmas. Or anything in your house that is different and you would never consider be placed on a dining table, try everything, be different.

I have no idea what this thing is called and it came from a tent and awning gift shop. I am sure you all frequent those often. It fits the top of a wine bottle and holds two candles and is gorgeous. Sacreligious? Probably. Oh well, just behave extra good. And please cut off the red plastic. I personally loved this.

What a fun way to present breakfast on a Saturday morning cartoon fest. You don't even have to get up. Just set this up the night before and buy small cartons of milk and juice and sleep for another hour. Happy kids, happy you.

Love this flatware. Fun. And probably cheap. Sorry it is hard to see. This table was adorable but very full of stuff, I have no idea where they ate lunch.

This was made using a rub on and then placed on black paper. If you are a stamper, you know what I am talking about. If not, get some help. Not that kind of help. Stamp craft help. These were placed on black branches and were beautiful.

Why not use a statue? Remember, think different. This would be very fun out on a patio table.

More cork ideas. Although I feel the mix is wrong. Instead, use grapes, grape leaves, grape vines, bottle openers, etc.

The placement of this formal dinner utensils is very pretty. Why follow the rules? If you go back to my table post, I broke the rules also and I liked it better. It is sort of like coloring. You have to know how to color in the lines, but you do not have to do it. Live a little.

If you are interested in my table and have not seen it, it posted on 10-17-08 and is titled 'Diner en Blanc'.
