The heavy gold chargers were a gift about 10 years ago. They were purchased at Pier One. The black plates were an inexpensive set of dishes purchased longer than 10 years ago, and I don't remember exactly when or where I got them. I love how the hexagonal shape contrasts with the round charger.
On top are some black cloth napkins with a fun ring. They are actually $.99 bracelets I bought at a party shop. They are basically just purple, gold, and green bells with a few beads in between. FUN!
Yup - those are my same every day dishes and flatware. I barely have room for the dishes I have. I definitely do NOT have the space for all the dishes and silverware I WISH I had. (Not to worry - I'm working on a plan!)
My black tablecloth is new. My sweet mother-in-law gave it to me for Christmas. I know I'll be able to use it for lots of different tablescapes. She'always says such nice things about my tables and it's fun that she's now contributed to a table.
The purple and gold are just strips of fabric. I used to wrap them together as a Christmas tree skirt. As soon as I started thinking about Mardi Gras , I just KNEW they HAD to be a part of this table!
The tall candles usually live around my garden tub. I bought them at Kirkland's about 3 years ago.
This mask was purchased during a vacation to New Orleans - long ago.
