Not Quite Oktoberfest Table

We're calling this week's table "Not Quite Oktoberfest" because of the dishes that were used - Mikasa's "Kabuki" - a very un-German looking pattern, but the colors are perfect to compliment the inspiration Beer Stein that Pat used for a centerpiece vase.

Flatware is "Grand Colonial" by Wallace

This Hutschenreuther "Racine" luncheon plate was used to give the place setting some separation

One of our favorite glasses - from the Dollar Store

These cute little figurines were a gift from a friend while she visited Germany several years ago

Where it came from:
Rust Place Mat - from Pier 1's sale rack last year
Charger - Also from Pier 1 's sale shelf two years ago
Dinnerware - "Kabuki" by Mikasa (1978-1985) from the Discovery Shop (our local Cancer Society's Thrift Store)
White Luncheon Plate - "Racine" by Hutschenreuther from
Flatware - "Grand Colonial" Sterling Silver by Wallace (a generous gift from our Cousins)

Noritake Momentum Table

Choosing a dinnerware pattern is definitely personal and individual. What one person loves, another may just shake her head in disbelief. Thus the story of this week's pattern used on the Table for One. Pat fell in love with Noritake's "Momentum" the first time she saw it. I, on the other hand, do not "share" her fact, I think it is ugly. But that never stops us from using it on a table.
Pat reused the flatware and goblets from last week (I hadn't put them away yet.....)

The place setting.......Pat loves the versatility of the pattern colors. She mixed it with several different chargers and settle on this color.

 Where it came from:
Antique Gold Charger - from Tuesday Morning last year (but available at Pier 1)
Blue Charger - "Colonial Blue" Color Spectrum by Mikasa from
Dinnerware - "Momentum" by Noritake from our single place setting collection
Flatware - "Kyoto Gold" by Holister from Wayfair last year
Glassware - from Pier 1 last year
Napkin Ring - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond several years ago
Candle Holders - from local Thrift stores whenever Pat can find them
Silk Roses - from Michael's
