Today's tablescape for the holidays is the third in a series. What has become almost my trademark style is to get the most stretch out of a tablescape by doing change ups for each meal over several days with the same basic design framework. Change ups give each one a different look.
First I showed you the Friday night dinner in magenta here: http://swede.typepad.com/swede/2011/12/tablescape-holiday-dinner-in-magenta.html
Second, I showed you the Saturday lunch in cranberry here: http://swede.typepad.com/swede/2011/12/tablescape-cranberry-and-magenta.html
So today is the Saturday evening dinner. I have mixed all reddish-purplish colors so I don't know whether to call it raspberry, maroon or puce???
The changes from the previous two posts in this dinner tablescape are the goblets, tumblers, and dinner plates. The centerpiece has been changed up a bit and the ornaments on the plates are a different style. Jeweled glass ornaments from Target last year.
The dinner plates with magenta swags of flowers are antique German. I am also reusing the Haviland Malmaison magenta bread and butter plates, the Jaune de Chrome English Rose on Song chargers and Tiffany St. James antique sterling.
New to this tablescape are the water goblets which are Varga's pattern Imperial Grande in the color raspberry. The tumblers are from Bormioli Rocco & Figlio of Italy in the Bicchiere Sorgente pattern and colorway Fucsia.
Here you can see a partial overview of the dining room with the Swede Collection console against the window. To see the post on the arrangement on the console go to Holiday Decor in Magenta HERE.
