...Asian themed bridal shower for my nephew and his bride, so I had a good supply of perfect accessories for this tablescape. This table starts with a rich red linen tablecloth.
I've added a topper...just a large square of shiny red satin, embroidered with dragons. How lucky! These plates are part of an entire set of china my father shipped home from his Navy days (circa 1940's).
They still look stylish, set atop my golden chargers. These adorable very vintage blue glass tumblers will be perfect for sipping Tsing Tao beer.
The glass is paper thin...I can hardly believe they've survived the years. I picked up this cute ceramic Chinese take-out container at Pottery Barn years ago!
I have used it us a vase, but this time, it holds a handful of colorful chopsticks. In addition, my guests will navigate this feast with cute little Asian soup spoons.
Red and gold paper fans add a festive touch.
These satin red lanterns were a very lucky find at Target.
And now for my favorite touch...the napkins. Plain red linen napkins are magically turned into giant fortune cookies.
