Setting Sail Table

Pat set a decidedly masculine table this week taking a little-used placemat as her inspiration.

Dinnerware is sleek, modern "Milano" by Pasabahce. It is made of thick, clear glass making it much heavier than most glass dinnerware.

Flatware is black Primastone "Decision" by Noritake

Pat used a simple tan hemstitch napkin tied in a knot

I think this is clever - Pat used knotted rope napkin rings as votive holders (the votive is lined with foil)

Pat's bargain of the week: she got two of these lighthouses at a thrift boutique for free. No one wanted them.

Where it came from:
Placemat - Ross years ago
Flatware - Primastone "Decision" by Noritake from my collection of Noritake flatware (I have this pattern in white, brown, yellow-gold, purple, and black. I started buying it back in the early 70's.)
Dinnerware - "Milano" by Pasabahce from Tuesday Morning two or three years ago
Glassware - from the Dollar Store
Napkin and Lantern - from Pier 1 two years ago
Rope Napkin Rings and Votives - from Michael's
Lighthouse - from "Tabitha's Closet" (a local thrift and boutique store)

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:
