Fall White Plate Challenge

We are participating in Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" (  Fall Challenge this week - design a Fall table using white plates only and one other color. Pat did not want to use the typical Autumn colors - golds, reds, yellows, browns. So, here is what she came up with after visiting Michael's silk flower section a few weeks ago:
Over view of the table

The place setting

This unusual flatware is called "Pure" by Gourmet Settings - not everyone's choice.

The modern style of the glassware goes perfectly with the flatware

Pat balanced the smooth look of the flatware and glasses with this textured dinnerware

The charger is Royal Blue "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa - it is actually more of a steel blue color.

Although it looks awkward, this flatware is really comfortable to hold and use

Pat also used this napkin fold to balance the left and the right side of the table

Of course, matching blue tea candles 

The blue hydrangea was the inspiration color for the table

One last look at the table

  1. So elegant! And what a fabulous napkin fold -- it caught my eye immediately! You can't go wrong with blue and white, and this is a lovely shade of blue.

  2. A lovely table! I'm amazed that just one accent color can combine with white to produce such a dramatic effect. You've answered the challenge spectacularly!! Rosie

  3. This table is so unique with the use of this gorgeous shade of blue and blue is my favorite color. I love the modern shape flatware and hope to find this set. Your centerpiece with the white candles and blue flowers is so lovely with the blue hue charger. Have a great fall week!
