Tablescape Thursday... in Black & White

I went for another streamlined look for TT this week. I love a black & white palate and found white tulips (my ultimate blossom of choice) to complement the tablescape:


You can see the new little doggie door my son-in-law installed for me when he and my daughter and grand-munchkin were visiting from New York a couple of weeks ago. I love it and the pups are finally getting the hang of using it. Yay!




The flatware pattern is Arctic - I purchased it on sale from Pottery Barn a year or so ago. I love the look and heft of it.



The napkin rings were purchased on eBay. Don't you love that site?!



I don't recall the make of the table linens, but I do remember purchasing them from Bed Bath & Beyond a few years ago. My son gave me the wine glasses several years ago. I love them, too. I think the long stems give them a real look of elegance!


And the tulips. *sigh* They just make me happy. I purchased them from Target for $20 for the whole bunch. Color me happy!!


Thanks so much to Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursdays. Check out her blog to take a peek at everyone else's incredible TT creations!

One of our galleries is having a Black & White competition in October: you may have provided me with a super idea! Now I have to practice painting glass.
