New Year's Tablescape

I'm so glad Dollar Tree was open today. I remembered seeing some nice white china plates with thin bands of gold and I wanted them for my table. We had company for dinner tonight and I wanted something extra nice that wouldn't break the bank. I hit WalMart's 75% off Christmas decor sale for table decorations. I'm going back tomorrow and buying 8 red chargers for $2.50. They're plastic but it's a start down charger lane.

I gave the middle daughter, Richelle, a demonstration on the care and feeding of silver-plated flatware. She will be inheriting this set and with proper care it will last to be handed down to her children.
