I am linking to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. I haven't finished looking at all the posts yet, but they are always wonderful and a great way to spend an evening. The pink Tablescape Thursday button is on my side bar.
Since perfect husband is so patient and tolerant of my fettish for dishes and glassware, and has only asked me where I'm going to put something one time, I try to set week night tables for the two of us that aren't too over the top or too frilly. After all, he has to be comfortable, right. Compared to many of the settings you will see on Tablescape Thursday, mine are pretty plain. But they work for us and I like sharing them.
So, tonight it is black and white since I'm not much into the beach feeling yet.
The purple cast on the greyish glasses is interesting!
The placemats are a simple black (fake or plastic straw thing) with white trim and came from a discount store a couple of years ago. I'm not too big on round placemats, but I use them sometimes in lieu of a charger;
The plates are from Dutch Design Collections "Solids" and I got them at Marshall's a few years ago I only have four of the plates and haven't been able to find anymore;
The black bowl is my everyday Pfaltzgraff; the flatware is my stainful stainless; the back wine glasses came from Big Lots many years ago; the smoke colored glass if probably circleware from years ago.
The setting is a little stark (I think in this day and age it's called minimalist) and I notice I have developed the bad habit of putting the fork on the napkin. My Grandma would be appalled. Wonder when and why I picked that up! (I think I can't bear to set the fork on a table without a cloth?)
Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to click over to Between Naps on the Porch for the incredible settings that you'll find there. Thanks again, Susan, for being such a cheerful and gracious hostess.
