Black and White Tablescape

Happy Father's Day everyone.  If I had been thinking, I should have done a golf theme!  But I wasn't so this is the tablescape I had planned.  I'm going to do a golf theme though very soon to be sure.

Today I'm doing black and white.  Last week I found four black charger plates for 25 cents.  How could I resist?

I used my etched glasses today and I see they are not showing up very well in the photographs since I did not fill them with anything.  Our cupboard is bare since I haven't shopped for this week yet.
I picked up these cute black and white desert/salad plates at Home Goods a few weeks ago.  They are simple in design, but beautiful, and they represent famous landmarks around the world.  Today is Big Ben and the Vatican.
I used my paper script flowers that are on wire for the napkin rings.  Aren't they cute?
Here's a close up of Big Ben.
And another close up of my French script paper flowers.

Here is a close up of the Vatican plate.

I also used a lantern I purchased from the Home Goods clearance table and put my white orchid plant inside of it.  I think I am going to keep it in there permanently.  Can you see Cindy in the background?  She's had her daily swim and now she wants to go in the house with wet fur!  Sorry, Cindy.  Not just yet.

I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends.  Thanks for dropping by.

Wow! That is some size lantern for a clearance item, Maggie! I love it! I am also loving that tablecloth. It works so perfectly with your black and white theme. Great dishes, too. Everything just works so well together.

Well, it is masculine enough for Father's Day-black and white works, I think. At least it is not pink and fluffy! It looks great- Love those plates- xo Diana

Did I miss a post about the tablecloth, because I'm loving that and you didn't even mention it.

The tablecloth with ruffles on it is a fave from D´Box.

Love all your touches around and on the top of your table. Very elegant.

Have a nice mid-week.
