You cannot imagine my delight when I got an email from Noritake a few weeks ago. It said I had won the Noritake Piedmont Platinum Accent Plates. Wow. Oh yay!! Can you spell excited??!!!
I just knew they would work so well with many of my dishes. I had planned to deck the table with my these pale blue accent plates and my wedding china, but I think I'll save that for another day. Isn't the square shape wonderful. That's platinum on that plate!!
For our Sunday dinner with my 97 year old dad, I pulled out the pale blue Williams Sonoma linen tablecloth and as much crystal as I dared put on the table.
Including crystal knife rests from the mister's grandmother.
Mikasa Parklane water goblets, Libbey Rock Sharpe wine goblets and unknown Champagne flutes.
White flowers always pop on a pale cloth. Simply mini-mums keep the table from looking too formal.
The guys already cringe at white napkins!
Wedgwood Windsor dinner plates and Old Company Plate's Signature silver complete the look.
The silver Gorham Chantilly candlesticks are hard workers around here.
How do you keep your white napkins clean? I place mine in an oxyclean bath directly after dinner.
Let them soak a while. It will not hurt.
Whereas bleach weakens the fibers. Always.
I'm still collecting silver trays. Can you ever have too many?
I love how many different edges are available. It's so hard to pick a favorite.
Do mums make you smile? Oh gosh, these last so long and bring so much joy.
I hope you had a pleasant visit. I'd love to have you grace our table!
Thank you Noritake for the wonderful pieces!!!
