Reina by Noritake Tablescapes

Reina by Noritake is a beautiful but simple dishware pattern. In his book, Dinnerware of the 20th Century: the Top 500 Patterns, Harry Rinker list it in the top 200 patterns. The plate has a delicate white flower and leaf pattern on white with a narrow trim of silver.

Pat put together three place settings (each in a different color scheme) using Reina. She used different flatware, napkins, and chargers to create unique tablescapes.

First - over view of the three tables:
Reina with black and silver
Reina with powder blue
Reina and burgundy

Here's a closeup of the details of each table:
