Take a moment and notice all the lovely detail in this plate. It doesn't matter if it is your style or not, just learn to appreciate all the leaves and roses and swirls and colors.
In this photo you can see more pieces. Lots and lots of detail. Charger, dinner plate, cup and saucer, bread and butter, napkin ring, and glass. Keep reading, there is an amazing point to this. Now prepare to be humbled.
EVERY item on this table that is any form of glass was HAND PAINTED by the lady who designed this table. Teapot, vase, creamer and sugar. In four different base colors. Wow!
This table was so lovely. It just felt like fall, like dinner at the 'manor', dinner where everyone dressed and spoke of world affairs, dinner that was served by the staff. Everything was formal.
The centerpiece was full and gorgeous but I could not do it justice here and I did try. But this horn, OMG! Beautiful! The silver holder angles this direction in order to put the horn in proper position. It holds gorgeous feathers.
Being me, I am going to assume the horns just fell off some animal who lived a long healthy and happy life out in the wild.
One more day of tables and tips, then it is back to baking and such. I have a great tip for moist meatballs that I will share with you then.
