I have 8 teak plate chargers that have been sitting around in my dining room drawer for a couple of years. I don't use them very much but they are very pretty. Fiesta ware is what I use for everyday kitchen plates so I decided to paint a small design around each charger to match all the colors of my Fiesta ware. I'll bring that to you in a few days as I finish up the last plate.
While I'm on the subject of table settings I thought you may enjoy some real beautiful looks for tables. The more I see, the more I want some new looks for my own table. How about you?
I'm not all that formal, but I thought it may be important to show exaclty how a table should be set, as the above photo shows. You get the idea....

A sweet setting for Valentine's Day. I love the heart shaped plate. Believe me, I'm tempted-but where do you store all these beautiful, theme plates?

I love the colors in this setting. A more traditional look, but lovely for sure.

A simple and elegant setting. Notice the sprigs of dried flower on every plate.

A sophisticated look-very visual and geometric. This settings makes a statement. I could definately see this setting for a business dinner.It's just fun to look around and see what others are doing on their tables. It's definately a way to show some creativity.
