Courtly Check black and white tablescape

Last week I showed you my DIY MK placemats.  Now it's time to show you my table setting which I totally love!
Courtly check tablescape
 My napkin rings I made from another DIY project.  Check out how to make your own HERE. (Ironically I made those napkin rings a year ago!)  This platter we bought to use outside for the BBQ.  But I stole it for my centerpiece!

I love how the Juliska Country Estate plates go with the MK Courtly Check!

I had been wanting these candlesticks for a long time too.  When I made my napkin rings. I had leftover ribbon.  Since I didn't have the candlesticks, I just tied bows around the faux-candles to get the look.  But this past Christmas DH surprised me with these candlesticks!
Love my candlesticks!
What's been on your MK wishlist?

  3. I love the black and white theme, but I'm wondering can you tell me about the plates. I remember seeing some similar in Traditional Home magazine and they were very expensive. Did you find an inexpensive copy. If you did they sure compare to the ones I saw in T.H.

    1. The plates are by Juliska in the "country estate" pattern. They are quite expensive. I received most of the china pattern as wedding gifts last year. I did not register for traditional 'fine' china and 'everyday' china. I chose some expensive everyday china and figured I'd pick up some expensive porcelain set at an estate sale. I have yet to find a knock off that is similar... However I think this pattern resembles old china but it is dishwasher and microwave safe. Juliska has one outlet in Connecticut I think... You may be able to find some there. Or check ebay. Hope that helps!
