Table setting fit for a royal, or something like that!

We had an amazing dinner the other week with some friends.  Perfect candle lit dinner with the candle chandelier lit and a center piece of beautifully arranged tapered candles.

Table Setting:  We chose copper charger plates (these are the plates that go under the main plates, purely decorative if you're wondering what these are).  We chose a silver rimmed white etched porcelain main dinner plate and topped with Ralph Lauren's Cocktail Lace patterned salad plates.  Name cards were also placed on the plates for a nice formal gathering with assigned seating.  We went to a dinner party not too long ago at Frank and Keith's and they had a rule of no COUPLES sitting next to each other... What a fabulous idea!!  We decided to do the same but assign who sits next to who...  I know it's pure evil but oh so much fun!  This is how new friends are made!

Flatware: The silver baroque flatware was super ornate and matched well with the versailles silver plated napkin rings.  To the far left of the plate is the salad fork and dinner fork closest to plate.  Knife to the right of the table setting and desert spoon parallel to top of plate.  Your glasses are always to the right of you (in case you ever wonder which glasses are yours!).

Wine glass: Beautiful gold leafed rimmed crystal stem glasses
Aperitif glass: Crystal small aperitif glass
Water: We chose a simple vintage juice glass to soften up the setting
