Old Britain Castles for Neighbors' Anniversary

A few days ago was my daughter and son in law's 8th wedding anniversary. As you know our Florida home is right next door to theirs. They waited for the weekend to celebrate so I thought I would cook for them on the day of the anniversary which was a weekday.
 
I set the table using Old Britain Castles dinnerware set. Unfortunately, we weren't able to use the table because Scott came home late, which he always does when the weather is bad. I thought I would show you the table anyway.
 

Old Britain Castles S& P shakers.

 
The red votive candle holders were from a garage sale. I paid $3 for all 4. The table runner is from Homegoods. I've had it for a while and brought it from Natchez.


 The goblets are my cheap Dollar Tree purchase. Next time I come here, I will hand carry some wine glasses from Natchez. I have so many there and not enough here.


 The napkin rings I think are Fitz and Floyd. I bought them from a consignment shop in Fort Myers and they have an FF inscribed underneath.
 
I used the white wooden plate chargers from Pier One.
 The flowers and basket were brought from the Natchez home. The wooden tray with  peacock design is from Homegoods.

The tea set is also from HG.






Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate all the hostesses too! Many thanks to you all.

What a pretty table, Christine! I have the Old Britain Castles dishes, too; they are such fun to work with, aren't they? I also have that very same set of salt and peppers -- got them when they were marked down at our local Belk store.

Your table runner, napkin rings, and tea set are really pretty, too. Congratulations to your kids on their anniversary! Visiting from "Let's Dish" -- have a wonderful week!

British Castles is one of my KC's patterns, too. I love it because not only is it beautiful, but it's as light as a feather...so pleasant to use. Your table is beautiful, and I love the crispness of placing it on your black dining table. So good looking! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay
