Folding table brought in, 3 tablecloths, a mix of chairs, dishes, silverware and glasses. I also decided I wanted to use chargers, but only had 6, so I improvised. Last year, my friend Karen sent me this album:
I borrowed a couple pages out of it,
traced a pattern from my other charger,
and created my own.
(Technically, these might be placemats...but I'm going with charger)
I like the mix of glitz: silver tray, glass candlesticks, depression glass pedestal cake plate and beaded garland, with the slightly decrepit: rusted film reels salvaged from the metal scrap yard and used under tea lights, a bronze gear with a wonderful verdi gris finish that just happens to coordinate with the homemade chargers and one of the leaf colors in my autumnal dishes.
Pinecones used as place card holders...I think I'm set!
