Hello ~ it's such a pleasure to have you stop by for a visit!
Welcome to Tablescape Thursday, hosted by our lovely host Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch!
This week I'm hosting a Bright Winter Brunch for Tablescape Thursday.
I started with this table cloth by April Cornell, bright, deep pink in a jacquard pattern.
It happens to pick up a couple of the colors in these Martha Stewart dishes.
I don't have the matching napkins, so I used these from Williams-Sonoma (several years ago.) The napkin rings are a few years old, I'm sure they are still available, but I forgot where I got them. You can probably find them by doing an internet search if you are interested in them.
The little pressed glass bowls are actually vintage candy/bon bon dishes ~ perhaps your mom or grandmother had some? My mom did, I think they were very inexpensive in their day and most likely bought at the dime store (I hope some of you know what kind of store I'm talking about. *grin*)
My mother only had one or two, the rest I found at tag and estate sales. Mom would serve nuts, candy and her special homemade fudge in them ~ but I serve fruit, soup and small salads in them. I love the sparkle they add to the table, and the happy memories they evoke.
I use this flatware everyday ~ it's from Neiman-Marcus/Horchow.
The pattern is called "Hotel Silver", but it is actually stainless, thank goodness because I love the convenience of everyday flatware that can go right into the dishwasher.
I bought it a couple of years ago, but I believe it is still available at their online store.
Here are a few more shots of the pieces so you can take a better look.
I love the pattern on the plates. I believe these were from Martha Stewart's Everyday line from several years ago. I got them on ebay about 4 or 5 years ago.
The centerpiece is a vintage milkglass cake pedestal, with a garden pot which is the same color as the tablecloth. I received a florist's arrangement of Gerbera Daisies in it a couple of years ago and thought I could reuse it someday... and here it is!
As you probably guessed the hydrangea bloom is fake, and I've had the tall, narrow glass cloche for many years.
The little shabby bird is a "no name", from a local gift store.
The juice glasses are vintage ~ from the 40's and 50's, sometimes called "boopies".
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today ~ it always makes me so happy to read any comments you would like to leave!
