Birds and Twigs Tablescape

A few months ago, Pat and I made a trip to our local Pier 1 and found "another" set of dishes that we couldn't live without (Someday soon, I am going to do a "Where do you keep it all?" expose to come clean about our addiction. I did it several years ago (Here) but now we have a lot more stuff....remember - you have to admit that you have a problem to begin to recover from it.)\

Anyway, Pat pulled out the new dishes today and set the table.
We bought both the dinner plate and salad plate in this pattern but Pat didn't want to use the salad plate this week



Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings





I love the blue goblets - they were a gift from our dish addicted cousin a few years ago (it runs in the family....)


Pat used simple "Harry Lauder's Walking Stick" stems from her yard as the centerpiece

Lenox Interlude Table

Certainly not a "demure" pattern, Lenox's "Interlude" (1975-1985) is classy and a bit splashy. I love the rusty red and blue combination. It always looks special when used to set the table.




Definitely not reserved, Lenox "Interlude" is not for the faint of heart
