Welcome to Centerpiece Wednesday a little early 🙂
I decided to create a unique Tablescape using my French Eiffel tower plates that I bought while traveling in Chicago…..I mixed them with my black and white toile plates and my new red melamine toile plates from target (1.00 each)! I played around with all kinds of centerpiece ideas and with the help of my cute mom we finally came up with this somewhat Asian flair looking centerpiece. My cute hubby came home with these beautiful orchids and I had this metal plant holder and we plopped the orchids in it and it worked perfectly.
To bring in some more red color into this tablescape we placed apples inside this airy looking dome…I love how it looks.
Here is a close up of the red melamine plates…they really look like they are made from pottery not plastic don’t you think? We decided to use some white sea shells in this Tablescape and placed them on top of the red plates…..did you know you can bake in these shells? Or you could serve a shrimp cocktail in them or how abou a mini salad for an appetzier! You can purchase shells from my mom on her blog eatlotsachocolate.blogspot.com
The beautiful orchids close up!
My sister Tiffany over at thechildrensnest.blogspot.com made me these black and white toile placemats a couple of years ago for Christmas…they are perfect!
I love how black and white always works for any tablescape!
Look closely and you can see some chocolate sea shells! These are gorgeous Belgian chocolates made with a hazelnut filling.
You can purchase these from my mom’s blog eatlotsachocolate.blogspot.com they are only 1.00 each …..packaged in a real seashell.
I removed the other plates so you can see the Eiffel tower ….I bought them from a cute store called Posh Chicago.
These Scrumptious and elegant Belgian sea shell chocolates melt in your mouth and your guests will be amazed at how beautiful they look on their plates!

Very pretty table. So many interesting things to catch the eye. Just the right mix of black, white and red.
We were on the same page today with orchids and starfish! I agree, black and white has to be one of the most versatile and elegant tables. I just love your mix of plates. The chocolates look fabulous. I have made cakes and put these fun seashells in the frosting "waves". Yum.

What a rich and beautiful tablescape. I am so partial to black and white… with little touches of color! I see we both used orchids… swoon! Those chocolates look too good to eat…not really, I'd eat them in a second.
Thanks for inviting me over!!!!!
