This week is the end of the Chinese New Year Celebration. So Valentines were put away and I put together a new tablescape for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
Interestingly enough, there are still a lot of my Valentine's Day table elements. For Valentine's Day I used a Red and Gold palette and for Chinese New Year I added Light Blue to the Red and Gold!
I changed the darker burgundy tablecloth to one with a brighter red. I used the same gold chargers but on top of those I used light blue melamine plates that actually have an Asian flair. First a light blue plate, then a white/light blue floral print plate, then a blue flower shaped desert plate. And on top of that I used an acrylic martini glass which would be great for either desert or a fruit first course. Maybe lychee nuts!
I used the same gold napkins with red napkin rings and the same stemware, but instead of flatware I used chopsticks, of course. Now if you made me really eat with those you would be in for a laugh! So there will be flatware close by when a meal is served!
For my centerpiece I used the same gold beaded lone place mat I used for Valentine's Day. This time I topped it with 2 blue mercury glass candlesticks and 2 Chinese dog figurines from the Target Dollar-ish Section several years ago.
So Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
