I have like 3 nice full sets of dishes. I couldn't have said that a few years ago because I didn't have but the ones we eat out of on a daily basis. BUT now I have several sets. My friend Tammy gave me the ones that have the fruit on them and I call them the Tammy dishes. ;) The other set my Aunt gave me after I was telling her about how excited I was to find some like these for like .25 each. She goes to her cabinet and opens the doors and says like these? I bout fell out! lol I could not believe she had a set just like I was describing to her! So she gave them to me. I dearly LOVE these old dishes! So anyway I am trying to decide which set to use. Notice how the Tammy ones changed colors from the counter on the cabinet to the table with the Thanksgiving colors! I want to use something like a charger under the plate but I have no idea as to what! I don't have any solid colored dishes. I need a solid color off white set of larger plates for using like chargers. I have been at this for a few days now and still not happy with what my table looks like and wondering WHICH dishes to use. HELPPPPPPPP I want it to be soooo special and nice even. I may have to change the gold and oranges of the tablecloth and runner piece on the table to an off white tablecloth which I also have. BUT there again, HOW can I make it look like Thanksgiving with the off white tablecloth and napkins? I even thought I could buy some fresh flowers and make an arrangement for the table with those in fall colors. ?????
I was just over at My Romantic Homes blog http://romantichome.blogspot.com/2008/11/blue-white-thanksgiving.html and I dearly love what she's done with her table! I am not wild about silver but I really like what shes done. Check out that 3rd pic where she used the silver tray for the centerpiece! LOVE THAT and how she's fixed it.
