Lenox Rutledge Table for One

Pat's husband just finished spray painting dozens of chargers in assorted colors for us, and one color just stood out from the rest. Both Pat and I wanted to use it this week for the Table for One - Pat picked out a place setting that would work with it and came up with this tablescape:
Over view of the table

Pat combined gold flatware with the teal charger and off-white dishware

The detail on the plate is fabulous - you can see why Pat chose this pattern to go with the charger

Glassware is from Pier 1 a couple of years ago

A simple vintage napkin holds the forks

Don't ask me why but you can buy the cup with just one gold ring or three like this one.......

Just had to show you this plate - it is the 9 1/2" Accent plate that you can buy to coordinate with the pattern

One last look - check out the flower arrangement.  Pat made it using colors of the flowers on the plate
Where it came from:
Teal Blue Charger - Inexpensive lacquer charger from Michael's sale bin spray painted with plastic adhesive spray paint
Flatware - "Gold Iconic" by Wallace from Replacements
Dishware - "Rutledge" by Lenox from eBay and Replacements
Glassware - from Pier 1 several years ago
Candle Holders - Depression glass from our collection
Candles - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Napkin - Vintage from our collection

We will be joining Christine's "Table It!" at Rustic & Refined this Monday:

We will also be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch this Thursday:


  1. What a beautiful pattern! Love that china! You should write a tutorial on how to paint those chargers for us!!

  2. This is a beautiful table setting. Love the teal charger and the Lenox pattern is new to me. It goes perfectly with the charger in my opinion! Glad to see you at Christine's party today.

  3. This is one of the loveliest patterns I've ever seen!! It's colorful, yet so delicate. The charger color sets it off perfectly. Gorgeous!

  4. Beautiful table for one, Bev! The china pattern is really pretty.
