A Kitchen Table

Well, since it’s Thursday & we’re finished with our kitchen & I received a special gift in the mail, I thought I’d join Tablescape Thursday on Between Naps on the Porch!

This table setting was all about simplicity. No tablecloth, white linen napkins and an easy combination of our daily Pottery Barn dishes paired with the vintage Camelia dishes I scored for $33 (for a set of 8!) this summer.


I love how the plates mimic my black and white etching wallpaper in the breakfast nook…
Here are some armatel-like silver bowls with a vintage serving bowl set inside. I found it for $1.50 and just love the old platnium detailing around the rim:
And to add some height to the table, I used this aluminum serving dish ($7) on top of an aluminum jello mold (69 cents!) … It’s like a little stand:
And I added in our wedding crystal for a little sparkle: (Waterford Tall Lismore)
And the inspiration for this table was the pair of 18″ tall black handmade tapers:
I’m SO excited to share with you that Eddie Ross now has his first line of handmade candles!!! (that’s the link to the Eddie Ross Etsy store) They come in this simple elegant packaging (surprised anyone?) and in 12″ and 18″:
They’re black so they go with pretty much everything & I think this table setting shows that they can work in any season. They’re long-lasting and are black to the core. (I’ve never had 18 inchers before!!) I’m hoping these will be the first items in a long line of Eddie Ross products!! (A tabletop line anyone?!!!) I absolutely love them with all of the black touches in my kitchen!
And of course, I had to do the king of cheap chic justice by placing his candles in these beautiful etched candleholders I scored for only $8! (below)
SO there you have it: a simple setting in our new (old) kitchen:
Hope you enjoyed and also thanks so much to Eddie & Jaithan for the gorgeous candles!! You’re gonna rock this industry!!!
