"Senior Prom" Table for One

As I said in our other tablescaping blog this week, I live exactly three blocks from the local high school. However, exactly three blocks in the other direction (same street) is the local Senior Center where all kinds of activities take place for people of my age. The "Senior Prom"  dance is one. Pat set the Table for One this week in honor of the yearly seniors' prom that takes place around the same time as the local high school's prom. ("Senior" - Funny how one word can have such a different meaning....)
The table

The dish pattern is "Canton" by Royal Doulton

Pat used gold flatware to bring out the gold band on the plates

My favorite Depressionware glass pattern - "American Sweetheart" by MacBeth Evans

The color is actually a soft pink - charger is "Color Sprectrum" by Mikasa

Instead of a traditional napkin ring, a string of pearls was wrapped around the napkin (to match the pearl necklace on the figurine.)

These figurines are from our Mother - the are part of the Richard Simmon's Annie Wahl Dolls that he produced years ago

The detail in each figurine/doll in amazing

One last look

Where it came from:
Dinnerware - "Canton" by Royal Doulton from eBay
Pink Glassware - assorted Depressionware from our collection
Pink Glass Sherbet - "American Sweetheart" by MacBeth-Evans Glass from eBay
Flatware - pattern unknown
