circa 1974
The Pattern: This is dinnerware giant Lenox's very best seller, made right here in the South at the company's plant in Kinston, North Carolina.

The Setting: Drawing inspiration from the plate's gold band, we piled on the golded accessories, such as flatware and a charger. A green ikat tablecloth modernizes the look and adds a bold splash. Try a simple gold ornament or bell as a place card holder, and bunch inexpensive carnations tightly in gilded vases for a table that truly sparkles.
