Concours Betty Table

This week's table practically set itself after Pat and her husband participated in the local "First Annual Ferndale Concours on Main" - a gathering and competition of restored historic cars. They are judged on "their quality of restoration to well as their condition, preparation and operation." Jim and Pat entered their gorgeous 1958 Triumph TR3 roadster - not to be outdone by the vintage Jaguars, Ferraris, Packards, and on and on at the event.

So - here's our tribute to the Concours - albeit Betty Boop style.....

Flatware is "Everyday" by Reed & Barton stainless

Fiesta(ware) was the natural choice for the dishes since the colors went so well with Betty's car

Pat used the show's identifying plaque that hangs on the entrant's car door as a placemat

Betty and her divine roadster....definitely an award winner

Pat made an arrangement of pink and lavender silk roses to coordinate with Betty's outfit

Where it came from:
