Amazing table setting. So very elegant but yet a little casual. Your guest would feel so very comfortable. Casual elegance fits perfectly. I have those Waterford Ruby Hocks and love them.

I am not a participant in this weeks Tablescape Thursday but have thoroughly enjoyed your post.

out of this world. Can you tell me if the lamp in the middle is operated by battery? I cant see the cord so dont know if it is operated with a plug or by batteries.
