It is not a Nana's tablescape without candles!
Here is the "new" setting with the super cute dessert plate under the bowl.
I switched out the crystal candlestick for the hurricane lamps (found them for $3 each at Michaels).
The flowers are just some silk ones from the dollar store that I put in a pitcher- they look pretty good!
I just placed the napkin rings inside the glass with the napkins- it works!
My sister found these beautiful large platters too-(I was so glad- she had found a platter before that ended up slipping onto the floor and breaking into a zillion pieces). Bill from Affordable Accoutrements , who got me started on this collection (loved a table he had done), says it is better to risk breaking a piece here and there than to not use it and have a perfect set when we die! I think that is a good word! Why are we saving stuff? Why do we have "good China"- what the heck- get it out and use it!
Have a great week and please drop me a line so I can visit you too!!
