A gilded tapestry
It started with the tapestry. Made these to mimic some I saw in Santa Fe. Quite simple: Buy the fabric. Cut the fabric. Sew a tiny zigzag stitch around all sides about 1/4" inside the raw edge. Fray the edge.
First layer of gild: a charger backed in gold.
A white dinner plate.
The second layer of gild: a salad plate undercoated in gold.
A beautiful stack. Damask napkins in wooden napkin rings.
A crystal basket for the centerpiece.
Spider mums and some fitzer branches off of the shrubs outside.
A favorite that just seems to fit the season - rosewood handled brass flatware.
Mikasa water goblet with a golden hued wine goblet,
Create a gilded tapestry on which the setting sun works its magic.
