I’m going rogue…

I’m going rogue with the table setting tonight… But I am having some cool people over so I think they can handle it.  First, I used a scrap of  Ikea PS TOTT fabric that I had left over from my bulletin board project, and I threw it on the table… I like that it doesnt cover the entire table’s width, and that the front and back edges are cut not sewn.

I used my basic white dishes instead of my “fancy” ones, but I mixed them with the gold silverware that I normally use with my other set.

I used black linen napkins in lucite napkin rings from Barney’s, and woven wicker placemats from Pottery Barn.

I used a gold leaf tray from home goods for my challah… The two black studded vases are also from home goods. The center one is from Ikea and I think it is probably the best $39 dollars I ever spent!

Oh yea, and me and my florist are getting quite chummy. I think Im developing a tad of an addiction!

Chic or EEK? Tell me now so I can change it before my friends come over!

My Aunt rocks, she wears leather pants and does yoga…and that does not even begin to scrape the surface of how cool she is! Have a a great dinner…actually, it already is!

    this table looks awesome. love the black studded vases! can’t wait to go to deal so i can go to home goods! there isn’t one in the city right?
    i need lucite napkin rings…i saw ones in barney’s for $20 each, but anywhere to get cheaper ones?

  12. Nicole Cohen says:

    Thanks VIv- there is no home goods in the city, there is one in staten island that I hear is AWESOME and one in NJ thats supposedly only 20 minutes away.

    The lucite napkin rings were from Barney’s for $20 each, but I bought them 3 years ago so I dont know if they are the same ones you saw! I will look into the whole lucite napkin ring thing for u!

  13. That’s the coolest Shabbat table I’ve ever seen. Well done!

  14. I really like it…especially those lucite napkin rings, so cool!
