Yesterday I gave you a sneak peak at the red tablescape I had put together. I had a lot of fun and as I said yesterday I have learnt to shop the house!
I had bought these cute napkins a couple of weeks ago and they were the start of my table. They were 50c each and the only thing I purchased so I was very pleased to be able to put this together in a colour I don't normally use - it is amazing how china looks so different in other colour combinations.
I have a few pieces of red transferware which I have teamed with some pretty cups and saucers. The white chargers were purchased a few months ago for only $10 each - it is such a shame there were only two in the shop!!
Most of this china was found in second hand shops or kindly given to me by my mum.
I have used pretty red and white tealight candles along the centre of the table.
I just love layering lots of different plates - I think it's just like unwrapping a present to see what's underneath..
The table runner was another piece of fabric from my quilting fabric stash - lucky I am able to use it in tablescapes as I haven't being doing much quilting lately.
Even though I don't drink red wine (my kids tell me I need to practice this!!) I really love these glasses. I bought them a few years ago to use at Christmas.
The clear handled flat ware matches the vellum paper I have covered the tealight candle holders with.
I had this lovely urn given to me for a birthday from a very dear friend and I wanted to use it with the white candles but I couldn't get them to stand up properly so the only thing I could find to use was the dark red apples from the fruit bowl!!
What is it about candle light that makes everything seem so special??
