Clear Inspiration

You may have seen my last post about how I threw together the centerpiece, but didn't have any ideas about how to put the whole table together.

So I promised I would post again when I figured out what dishes I wanted to use with this centerpiece and it hit me like a lightening bolt as I was rummaging through my dish closet and came across some Fostoria Holly salad plates.

The fairy lights on the table are from Smith and Hawken several years ago.  I just love how they make everything sparkle.  

Mirror Placemats - Ross
White Chargers - Old Time Pottery
Clear Square Dishes - Unknown, but my dish expert friend thinks Fostoria
Clear Round Holly Dishes -  Fostoria - thrift store
Glassware - Fostoria Ballet- local thrift store

Thanks to Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursdays    Cheers !

  5. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I LOVE seeing all that crystal and the lights! You've laid out the dishes and accessories perfectly! It is definitely breathtaking! The tree in the background makes it look so Christmasy and magical! The only thing better would be a white tablecloth for a truly wintery look!
