I decided to set the table for a simple dinner in black and white.
Please ignore the light reflection in the plate. This is what happens if you wait until after dark to take pictures. I had to have lights on. Oops...sorry. The dinner plates are American Atelier Bianca Leaf, the black salad plates are Walmart and the bowls were a recent purchase from TJMaxx. They are Royal Stafford and I love them. I hope to find a few more pieces. I used round black placemats to finish the look.
The flatware was a garage sale purchase last weekend. My "across the street neighbor" had a set of 60 pieces for $25. It is Rogers Bros. Adoration from 1930.
I used my short black dotted glasses and instead of napkins, black and white dishcloths I found at Walmart for $3. I love the added texture.
