These Asiatic Lilies are my pride and joy! I grew them and somehow kept them from being eaten by all the animals that come around here! I filled vintage crystal pitcher with wood ferns and day lily leaves. Oh, and I also stuck in a flower from one of my hostas.
The dinnerware is "Belize" by 222 Fifths. I found this at Marshalls and called my mom from the store knowing this is right up her alley! I got every plate they had for $3.99-$4.99. They are MUCH more than that on ebay.
I used the Oneida "Meadowbrook" silverplated flatware...if I had a bamboo-handled flatware, I would have used that.
The red glasses are Wright "Wild Rose Ruby" depression glass. She made me pack them VERY carefully to carry them across to my house:-)
I used the World Market napkins and bamboo napkin rings from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Guess where the placemats came from? You got it, Wal Mart. I would have chosen square rattan chargers, but since I did not have any, I wanted to show that you can use what you have to set a pretty table. I really like how they look with the plates.
I almost forgot...I used my vintage Fostoria "Baroque" three-lite candleholders. I am in love with these!
The sun begins to set...look at the candleholder...
The sun has set, and evening has arrived. I love the glow of the ruby glass in the candlelight.
I hope you enjoyed my tropical escape to Belize! As always, you can take one new thing and use it with things you have to create a whole new table. Now if I could just get my mom to part with a couple place settings of this:-)
Please go by Susan's and see some fabulous tables!
