I have these lovely purple wine glasses. They are such a soothing colour so I have used them for this week's table.
I have teamed them with black for a dramatic look today. If anyone had told me this time last year that I would have purchased a black dinner set I would never have believed them!!
Even though black is not my colour I thought at $15.00 for the whole set it really didn't matter if it was never used except for playing with.
I have placed the black handled cutlery into these cute wire baskets. I picked these up from my sister's gift shop when she was about to throw them out one day.
Pretty purple and green glassware (from Ikea) bring in the colours of the under cloth I placed on the table first.
Simple placecards cut out from purple and white spot scrapbooking paper sit nicely in the bowls.
I have used three layers on today's table - the pretty purple and mauve rose print, topped with a piece of plain black then purple placemats to accentuate the black china.
I placed all the glassware at each end of the table and I really like it set like that - probably not really correct but I like it none the less.
A simple plate with three perfumed purple candles is sufficient in the centre of the table.
Mr FH and I are going away tomorrow for a couple of days - not to our beachhouse but somewhere really different. Actually it's part of our Christmas present from last year from our kids. I am very excited and hope to have some great photos to share with you.
