Red & Silver Tablescape

I guess I’m feeling a little bit of cabin fever.  With so much white outside, I wanted a little color inside.  I’ve had this set of red glass dinnerware since 1997.  I lost one of the plates along the way, so I decided to do a tablescape for 3.

I hope you enjoy my Red & Silver Tablescape.

Red & Silver Tablescape

I started with silver chargers and layered the plates & bowl on top.  Red handled flatware added more color.  Red napkins were held together with rhinestone ribbon.  Clear water glasses & red goblets finished the place setting off.

The centerpiece was simple.  A 12″ x 12″ mirror was used for the base.  One of the desert plates was put on top of the mirror.  A glass candle filled with red cinnamon candle was placed in the middle of the desert plate.  I added more rhinestone ribbon around the candle to carry out the silver color.  Some red gem shaped stones were scattered around the candle.

(funny, I just learned that my son can’t stand when I have the salt & pepper shakers facing in opposite directions.)  oops!

I really like the way the Red & Silver Tablescape came together.  And it gave me enough color to get out of the ‘cabin fever’ feeling.
