Romantic in Red, Black and Lace

I set this table even if the surrounding is a mess, lol. If you have visited lately, you would know that I am reorganizing the kitchen and my dishes.


Anyway, I decided to use red and black and white for this tablescape.


I was invited by Mary to join her Masterpiece Monday party so I am linking at http://boogieboardcottage.blogspot.com/ . Thanks for the personal invitation, Mary!

I was going to fill this ceramic basket with red wooden rose buds but I could not find them. I remember moving them from one cabinet to another but I have searched everywhere and still cannot find them. I bought them from Villeroy and Boch outlet store and they would have been really perfect here but, oh well, I'll just improvise.

Do you see the lace runner? It's really not a runner but that is what I intended of using it when I saw it. I have 2 of them. I bought them from one of the vendors in the store for $5 total. That would be my contribution for Thrifty Thursday. I think that is a real good price since they are pretty big and they are heavy lace. I can even make one of them into a blouse, lol.

I layered another black and white runner on top of it. See how much wider the lace is?







The dinnerware is made by Biltmore in the pattern Holland Platinum. I used Lace plate chargers.


I cut more holly berries from outside and stuck them in a black vase.









I hope you get to visit our gracious hostesses. Thanks, Susan, Mary and Leigh!

And thank you all for stopping by.
