I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Be sure to visit both for some wonderful blogs.
Normally in the cabin, tea would be served in a nice mug. Nothing fancy! But you see I found these cups and I had to do something special with them. The saucers are reticulated. I was not able to find a definition of reticulated that applies specifically to china or silver except that reticulation forms a network or a pattern and, in this case, an open pattern.
There are a couple of rules in the cabin that make tablescaping a little less formal and difficult to pull off as nicely.
1. No ironing
2. No silver polishing
Note the pink cloth is not ironed and the silver teapot is not polished. The napkins came already ironed! The monogram is a W and Wilson is a family name – works well.
First, I saw this cup. It is footed which is somewhat unusual.
Then I saw this one.
So, I decided a tablescape would be in order.
It has been too hot to bake in this little cabin so I let Hannaford’s do the honor.
The cake plate is pressed glass with a “zippered” effect. I used a glass goblet for a spooner.
This pitcher caught my eye at Deb’s Flowerbed Farm in North Bridgton on one of my first visits this summer. The flowers unfortunately have not liked the heat and I wasn’t able get as many as I would have liked. The pitcher is from Hanley, England.
Happy Tablescape Thursday and Happy Pink Saturday. See you at the So Long Summer BlogBBQ!
Have a safe weekend!
