My Teacups: The Glamour Shot
The Christmas Traditions dinner at my friend Ashly's church on Saturday night was as beautiful as always, and I enjoyed it even more than usual because my friend Kathy was the guest speaker this year. And since we had a little interest in the event on this blog, I thought I'd post some photos. See how pretty my old Johnson Brothers dishes look with Ashly's silver chargers, organza ribbon, crystal and flatware? I wouldn't have ever thought of trying to dress these up, but I think the result is absolutely gorgeous.
Here's a close-up of my own place setting.
And I also snapped a few shots of some other tables that caught my eye, like this one with what appear to be green Tiara (or some type of sandwich glass) plates and teacups and saucers ...
And this striking table outfitted in Ruby Red (this hostess gets the award for Fanciest Napkin Fold of the night) ...
And this pretty, very traditional Christmas decor, which looks like a table setting I might recreate using my Spoke Christmas tree wares. I got a lovely treat bag for coming to the dinner, but the real treat is always seeing the great table settings so lovingly created each year to kick off the holidays. Let them begin!
