Black & Red Polka Dot Tablescape
Here is another table that combines my two hobbies of quilting and table setting. I made six of these quilt blocks called Dresden Plate -- so fitting for what I am using them for!
They are often made in pastels and usually sewn into a quilt like the one on the left (picture came from this site on quilt history).
The ones I made are far from pastel and I decided to use mine for place mat/chargers to start a table in red and black. Here are my black and red polka dot Dresden Plates at the beginning of this tablescape:
When I am finished you will only see the tips of these chargers.
Here is the table as I am setting it. I like the look with just the salad plates, but I need to cover them because I am serving soup, so I need soup bowls. Once the soup is finished, I am happy to know that everyone will see this before the salad is brought to the table.
Here is the completed table with the soup bowls.
Here is a side view of the place setting:
And that's all. I am not into taking 15 or 16 pictures of my tables. I think once you see the whole table, you've really seen all you care to see.
