Susan for Tablescape Thursday at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
Try to make it a point to visit each and everyone of them. I know you will enjoy their amazing blogs.
My tablescape for today is really all Greek to me! Most of the table accessories came from Greece when we toured Rhodes, Athens and Katakolon.
I used my Bavarian platinum and gold china because they have a Greek key design. I don't use these very often because they are too simple. I bought them after we moved here so that I can have a formal china that can be used with either gold or silver accessories. I think I used them once when we invited a few employees from the hospital for a Christmas dinner party 3 years ago.
Here is a close up of the dinnerware. I used Italian glass plate chargers which I bought from Neiman Marcus about 2 years ago. Sorry I do not have any chargers in Greek but I think they blend anyway, don't you?
Here is the tea cup. Everything is matchy-matchy today, lol. This is a big set, a complete service for 12.
The wine stemware has a Greek key design also. And to add more color, I used my amber goblets along with it.
I try to buy a jar, urn or vase with the country name inscription whenever we travel. I don't know why I do not have one from Athens. But I am sure I will go back there cause dh has not been there and I want him to see the Acropolis. I will make sure I buy one then.
Even the tablecloth is Grecian. I bought it from Rhodes, Greece. I love the light crinkle material and the embroideries. However, the rug is not, close though, it's Turkish. I bought it from Istambul. Turkey. John can never forget when I bought it because I woke him up at 4 AM with a phone call and told him to log on the internet and help me pick out of 2 rugs that I liked. I emailed him pictures. The seller had a computer and he let me use his phone to make an overseas call. I am sure he made enough money off of me, lol. The rug was shipped and it reached home before I did.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my Grecian tablescape. I certainly enjoyed having you by!
