Black and Red in the Sunroom

Time to join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for that fun party "Tablescape Thursday"

Today, I set the table in the sun room. I'm glad to say, I finally have some curtains on the way for it.

My table is set for a cozy breakfast for two.


I am using stuff I already had on hand, and some of you have seen before for my centerpiece.



This faux ivy vine with the little red bird came from Cracker Barrel this Spring. I waited til it went on sale to get it.




Place setting using red, white and black.






I got these glasses recently at Dollar Tree because I liked the smoky grey/black color. But........






................are they grey/black or PURPLE???????
Spooky!!!! hehehehehe







Here, I changed it up a little bit, adding candles and removing the ivy. Always fun to try different looks. I hope you enjoyed your visit to the sun porch today.
Now got to Susan's for more great stuff to see.
Next week "Halloween" (I'm running a bit behind)

Why, you're not running behind... Halloween isn't for over a week! I'm glad you did this sunny table for two instead. It was a treat. I loved it just as much with the ivy wreath as with the candles.

My favorite part is definitely the chargers! I love them.

And I'm giggling about the spooky changing goblets.

D, those scrolly black chargers really add a wonderful touch to your table. I have that polka-dot pitcher, except in yellow -- wish I had it in red, too! Great color scheme, and your sunporch is always delightful to visit!

Hi D:

Cut table! Love the chargers and the polka dots. Such fun. Good for you for waiting for that centerpiece on sale. It's such a great piece I'm not sure I could have waited.

Ooo your tablescape is darling! I thought those glasses were black/grey until your question, gosh now I'm not sure. ;)

You must be so excited to be adding the finishing touches to your new sun room! Your red, white and black tablescape is darling. I actually think that your goblet is usually referred to as black amethyst...but of course. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
