It's time for Tablescape Thursday again. This weeks table is set for Mr. Mid-Atlantic's upcoming birthday. Now Mr. Mid-Atlantic's very patient with my dishes and setting and resetting the table....so this one's for him.
Setting a manly table can be a bit of a challenge for a gal who loves pink....but here goes.....
Mr. Mid-Atlantic plays cards with the guys a couple of nights each month....so this table has a Poker night theme.
Let's see each set up for "Poker night". Aren't these fun theme plates? Well actually they're paper plates set under clear glass ones.
a fun and thrifty way to set a theme. It's been dark and rainy all day, so I had to turn on the lights....you can see the plate a bit better without the glass glare.
Black dinner plates came from K-mart last year.
These gold rimmed glass chargers were an eBay purchase about 5 years ago. I was able to get 12 and I've used them a lot over the years.
Black and white checked tablecloth and the black iron "Treble clef" flatware were also eBay purchases.
I found these pilsner glasses at Goodwill this summer.
Cards made a fun coaster.
How's this for a manly sort of centerpiece?
I found this plate of cards on another Goodwill trip.
An old cigar box set on top of a pillar candle holder.
A pretty good hand held by an antique flower frog.
A bouquet of cigars. Mr. Mid-Atlantic does like a cigar every now and then....but he's always polite about puffing outside.
Love this old box.
A backside view.
A couple of overviews.
These black and gold napkins seemed to pull it all together. They were found a couple of years ago at Tuesday Morning.
Happy Birthday Mr. Mid-Atlantic....hope it's a real winner!
Be sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" for this weeks tabletop fun!
