A Creative Carolina Tablescape was the thing to create when my theme for my dinner group party was
“A Taste of Carolina”
We are a part of a Dinner Group consisting of wonderful friends
who I must say are fantastic cooks and gracious hosts.
I created this tablescape a couple of years ago and thought that I would present it again
to show you how to incorporate the love of your state and a unique parting gift for your guests.
It my was my turn and I had a very hectic schedule that week
so with some advice from a friend I decided to do something different.
TAKE OUT!!! From some of my favorite restaurants and deli’s in my city.
I live in an area filled will the most wonderful restaurants.
Simple Centerpiece of three “North Carolina” Beverage Glasses of Flowers
At the end of the evening, they will be given to my guests.

Place card holders with the names of the “food origins”
Flowers from Trader Joe’s….North Carolina Beverage Glasses from Catstudio
Have you noticed “peaks and valleys” of fabric on the plates?
You are probably thinking, what is a Lifesaver doing on a napkin?
The “Water Lily” napkin fold needed something in the middle of the “flower”.
The Lifesaver mint doubles as decoration for the napkin and an after dinner mint!
Dinner Plate: Lenox Butler’s Pantry.
Salad plate: Noritake Summer Estate.
The actual table setting was meant to be simple….along with the meal.
I thought a “pretty folded napkin” would add some whimsy and fun to the table.

It was a wonderful evening of food, drink and great conversation with wonderful friends.
I certainly did this dinner the “Christopher Lowell” style.
You know. . . . go to your favorite store, restaurant, or deli and embellish your “pre-cooked” food
and everyone is happy!
