The wine glasses are Crystal d'Arques. My Grandma Jane gave them to me as a wedding gift over 30 years ago. Grandma J. is 94 years old and just had a stroke that she's actually recovering from! She always had one of the best senses of humor of anyone I've ever known! She's strong - the oldest of her 5 other brothers and sisters, and the only surviving sibling. I wanted to use this beautiful glassware she gave me so many years ago since she's on my mind so much these days as she recovers.
Isn't this the perfect tablecloth for this setting? I love the silver strands running through it:
Between what I found around the house, Tuesday Morning, and Marshall's, I came up with the following 'centerpiece'. I love candlelight, even during the day...
When it's chilly, you have to do something to keep warm, right?! Another opportunity to pull out some of the afghans I've made:
Blue glass plates and bowls: Tuesday Morning
White salad plates: Macy's
Flatware: Pottery Barn
Tablecloth, runners, and napkins: Tuesday Morning
Silver bowl, glass & silver dome: Marshall's
