Happy Year of the Snake :-o

christmascandyFebruary 10, 2013

Not really a snake fan so I set a Chinese New Year Table using $1 wooden snake from Targ.

I found only 3 of the black and white plates at the TS so I just set places for 2.

For the CP, I used a brass charger, black candlestick, and red candle. I also used some silk mums. I also placed fortune cookies on each fork.

For the table, I used a red tablecloth, black chargers, black napkins, chopsticks, gold forks, and some black stemmed goblets. Everything was TS except the gold forks.

I also used a tiny Oriental themed tea set that belonged to my DM when she was a little girl.

Happy Year of the Snake!

Candy, fun to see you joined Nana and set a Chinese New Year tablescape. It's so fun to see the different pieces used on the tables. I have a vase, bowls w/spoons like yours and some wooden chopsticks from Noodle Express. Maybe I should join you ladies.LOL I have that same set of blk & wht dishes too!

Nice that you used your DM's little tea set for this ts. Thanks for sharing. Stay safe and warm.

Ssssswonderful..table setting!
Great combination with the R/B & White..
I think those plates are perfecft too. It's a shame that you only found 3.. Your DM's tea set is a precious addition.
BTW...I'm not a snake fan either..!!
But enjoyed this tablescape.

The plates are very pretty & I was trying to figure out what was on top of the napkins...fortune cookies, of course! R & B combo...looks great for this celebration! ...the goblets, too! TFS, Candy! Jeanne S.
