Welcome to the 202nd Tablescape Thursday!
Greetings! Hope your week is going great! Recently, Noritake, a wonderful Sponsor of Between Naps on the Porch, sent some lovely china my way. (Type Ctrl + a few time to enlarge photos in this post)
It was a gorgeous day, we got a little break in the storms this week. Wish you were here to enjoy it with me.
This table setting would have looked great with a floral centerpiece where the shorter candle currently stands, but I was in the mood for something a little different this week.
I liked the light, elegant feel of the silver and glass. It just seemed to work with this pretty dishware.
My recent addition to the porch (a new lamp) makes a pretty back drop for photos when lit. That’s a happy accident. (You can read about and see it a little better in this post: A New Lamp for the Porch.)
It wasn’t dark out yet, but I couldn’t resist lighting the candles.
The great thing about this china named, Combo, is it can be dressed up for an elegant or formal occasion but goes casual just as easily. I decided to dress it up a bit this week.
Combo is part of Noritake’s Tempo Collection. It’s described on their site as having “stylized florals in black, red and green” with lots of movement to “jazz up” your table. That describes it perfectly.
I used two different glassware patterns this week, both by Noritake. The iced beverage is Breeze Clear and the wine glass is Vendome Clear. They worked great together for this table setting! Beautiful!
The black beaded napkin rings and black flatware grounded the table setting, keeping it from floating away on this breezy, sunshine day.
