I Won!

I few weeks a go I got an exciting email from Betsy at A Perfect Setting. I had won 4 Modern Butterfly place settings from her give-away from Mikasa. Hurray - who doesn't love more dishes!!!

Well, this Tuesday the doorbell rang and my dishes arrived!

I set up my gaming table in the Billards Room (yes, my house is like "Clue") with an ivory cloth and used my new green ruffled chargers from Crate and Barrel. While they are not the same green as in the Modern Butterfly, I thing they complement each other well.

I used ivory napkins with a dragonfly napkin ring, my Betsy Patterson sterling and crystal stemware. There wasn't much room for a centerpiece, so a few flowers in a small vase did the trick!

Don't you love how Mikasa Modern Butterfly looks on the red placemats?

And the cup and saucers looked so nice on my dining room sideboard that I had an impromptu tea party!

I want to thank Lifestyle Brands of which Mikasa is a part and Betsy at A Perfect Setting for hosting this give-away. I am so thrilled with my Modern Butterfly!

I will be linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch, Tea Time Tuesday at Lady Katherine's, and Mikasa's The Great Dinner Party.
