Monogram Table

It time to share what's on the table with Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish!

With all the tablescaping goodies I have recieved, I have been playing with my dishes alot.  I have setting up the tables. This one evolved over several days. I will set it again for our anniversary I'm sure.

The gifts on this table are from my friend Ruby.  She gifted me the runner and the handpainted monogram plates created by her and her daughter.

This was one option but I really wanted to use my tassle napkin rings that I found at Goodwill several years ago.  They were new in the box and were originally sold at Dillard's.

But then I found the "V" and had to use these.
Which option do you like best?

I used my square Fiesta dinner plates in Lemongrass to add a splash of color.

The Diamond Point glasses were a thrift store find and the other glasses were found at Dollar Tree.  I really like the glasses from there since most are Libbey, and like Fiesta, are made in the USA.

My centerpiece is a clearance purchase from Dillard's.  I have a thing for tier trays I don't know why.

The Fiesta presentation is another one of my favorite pieces as is the pitcher. Finding this pitcher was a fluke as the Dillard's here does not carry black.  The sales clerk thinks someone returned it either after receiving it as a gift or purchasing on-line. 

I found the salt and pepper shakers at Saver's.  They were under lock and key.

The crystal candle holders were from Goodwill.

I hope you are having a great week. Please stop by at Kathleen's blog to see what everyone has created for their table this week.


  1. What a nice combination of colours you have chosen! I love black, white and chartreuse together. And you tossed in some gorgeous crystal items for some bling, what a unique take on your tablescape!

    Have a blessed and wonderful day, Monica!

  2. Stunning! I love the elegant simplicity of your table. What treasures that runner and the monogrammed plates are! And the V napkin rings are perfect!

  3. Hey there, Monica! Yup...I would've gone with the "V" napkin rings, too! They just fit perfectly into the whole scheme of things and play well off the runner. What a nice friend you have who created all those beautiful things for you!!! My friends have no talents. They just know how to "do lunch"! :-) I think the addition of the lemongrass plates made all the difference in the world! They really give the table a jolt! Very nice!!!

  4. Monica, you are using my favorite black stemware! Very pretty table, love the pop of yellow.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. It look stunning,the designs of Fiestaware are too good.And my collection is loved by all my friends.
