All Charged Up

What's It Wednesday #200

I am all charged up because it is our 200th What's It Wednesday Linky Party. Time certainly flies when you're having fun. Speaking of being "all charged up", I am super excited to share my latest "thinking outside the box" decorating solution.

The weather has been rainy and gloomy lately and I was determined to keep the winter decor light and bright. I thought of that last year and it truly kept us from feeling blah during the winter months. My great-grandmother's table and buffet are quite dark and my husband does not like it when I place a table cloth over it. So I had to think of something. 


One of my dear friends and neighbor said that she had never been to the Ikea. She is looking for organizational and storage solutions so off we went. While we were there we spotted these "chargers".

Well my dears, they aren't actually chargers at all. They are...wait for it...candle plates. 

It was the perfect addition to break up the darkness of the table and lighten up the room. I couldn't even tell you how many sets of chargers I have. I just absolutely love them! 


The chargers I have range from high-end silver ones I inherited from an Aunt, wooden, porcelain, stoneware, and the  cheapie plastic gold ones you find in places like Michaels during Christmas. Now I have added candle plates as chargers to my collections of chargers. Chargers have been around quite along time, in fact since the 19th century. They are also known as "under plates".  


In addition to beautifying the table they have a more practical purpose of protecting your table and tablecloth from becoming dirty from the food or effected by the heat of the food. They enhance any place setting. Each one of these Skurar candle plates chargers is like a burst of cream sunshine on the table. I am so glad I visited my local Ikea with my friend. Now you know why I am "all charged up". 

What has you "all charged up" lately?

Hi Paula. Your DR looks so pretty and those white"candle plates" really do brighten it up. Funny thing, I have 2 of those very similar ones. I've been trying to remember where I got them and I think it might have been Michaels. I think they do make a table so pretty. Great features this week. I have to go over and check out that phone table. Very unique and interesting..Thanks for hosting..Judy

I heard of candle plates but usually they are much smaller. Yours are gorgeous and so versatile! As I've said before, you have the best taste! Your features are outstanding, too! I knew it wouldn't be long before "hello, it's me" would be trendy in everything including décor. Happy 200th and thanks for hosting!

Curtains in My Tree said...

Of course your table is so pretty and bright, the peacock plates are adorable and a friend of mine would want some just like yours.

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

Those candle plates are pretty! I've seen people use them but no one mentioned that they were considered a candle plate. They offer a nice cheery addition to your table. Congratulations on 200 parties! I've never been to an IKEA store but I'm warned that they are huge!
The peacock plates are so pretty!

Donna Wilkes said...

I have never shop at IKEA, but I love the "chargers". My favorite link last week was the telephone dresser - glad it is a feature on your 200th party. Thanks for hosting.

Jillian's Bella Rosa Antiques said...

Thank you for hosting and love the "chargers!" You have such a talent and vision for things like this. Beautiful home.

The Porcelain Rose said...

Happy 200th!
Chargers are a great way to enhance your table setting. I have several sets in different styles and colors. My favorites are my vintage silver trays. I mix and match vintage silver trays of similar size instead of using store bought chargers. They look great with my vintage china, silverware and linens.
Thank you for hosting each week!
Happy New Year!
Blessings.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

I'm back with some vignettes I just created for my January Winter look and I spotted those great 'place mats' as my daughter Alexandra bought them at Ikea last October, along with bread plates to match. I loved it that they were metal too.
Love heirlooms and yes, I love it better then the tablecloth idea, like your hubby.
Thanks for hosting and having me again Paula.
Hugs,
FABBY
