I borrowed this idea for this weeks table from a lovely historical Bed and Breakfast Inn here in Oregon.
The china is one of our everyday sets, Liberty Blue printed on Staffordshire Ironstone made in England, which I've shared on my blog before.
Now, usually I probably wouldn't have combined the red linens, golden flatware and charger with my everyday Blues ~
But I really liked the way it looked at the B & B, so I (shamelessly) copied their example!
I like to mix and match my everyday blue and white with other brands,
like this Burleigh ware in the "Calico" pattern, Staffordshire, England.
And water served up in this antique American pressed glass pitcher.
A pitcher of water or lemonade on the table seems to express the feeling of hospitality.
But, Ooops, you may have noticed that I forgot to add the water glasses to the table setting this time.
As my friend Linda would say, this was one of those "mature moments".
True! I love that. *grin*
If this were the peak of rose season, I probably would have chosen reds and white, or maybe golden yellows ~ but we're clipping the last few blooms of the season, so I couldn't be picky. These poor blooms took a little tired from the beating they took from the rains the previous evening but I love to have something fresh on the table for the centerpiece when possible.
I would like to thank you for coming by today, please come back again often.
I would love if you would leave me a message so I know you have visited.
Have a lovely weekend, friends ~
And Happy TT!
