Setting a Divine Table
GREENSBORO, NC June 2002 - When the set designers at Warner Brothers wanted to create the sets for the film Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (starring Sandra Bullock, Ashley Judd and Ellen Burstyn) they asked the experts at Replacements to help them recreate the past. The producers, directors and set designers all wanted to stay true to the time periods and add color to the sets that reflected the "over the top" taste of the characters. Replacements, Ltd., the world's largest supplier of old and new china, crystal and silver, researched more than 168,000 dinnerware patterns to come up with the Divine Tableware .
The dinnerware patterns selected for the silver screen include the Lenox Cinderella china pattern, Tiffin Wistaria Pink and Morgantown Cobalt Blue crystal and the Reed & Barton sterling silver pattern Francis I. Replacements caught a big break when the script called for pieces of the discontinued china pattern to be broken during one scene in the movie.
