Once in a while I am happy with the shot but - who wrote on the napkin?

Very nice composition and treatment Kenny

Was it Gimp that you used?

Unless I am mistaken all the napkins have been written on, in biro too! (Tis a long time since I've used that expression).

I hope the occasion went well.

All the best from hot and steamy North Carolina

Hi Jethro

Thanks for the comments. It was done in Photoshop Elements although I do have to Google a tutorial every time I try anything. My G.M. was attending this function and suggested I get a couple of shots for future advertizing (hence the sneaky watermark!) He said the menus were printed onto the napkins and there was a deliberate mis-match of tea cups. This and the use of victorian table cloth centres created an old fashioned look to match our building.

I did a sepia conversion of another table to create the illusion it was taken on 1900 - I will upload it.

Nice, mismatched tea cups means different things. To me it means cups and saucers don't match but here it means they match but are different on each table.

The napkin idea is most interesting. Overall the effect is excellent.
