Another Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch and a chance to play with my dishes. Susan is the gracious hostess for this fun event. I have always loved dishes and setting the table. My dolls even had dishes!
Here in Florida we have had a chilly winter – nothing like what folks across the rest of the country have experienced - but not what we expect or are prepared for here. So, as this weather is starting to get warmer and the house can be opened up, my thoughts turn to spring.
I saw these salad plates at WS and they followed me home…along with the tablecloth and napkins. Living in Florida for the winter months, I miss the spring flowers. I have gathered faux spring flowers so that I can decorate my house and table.
The silk flowers are from Pottery Barn. I like the quality and look of them. The candlesticks were a find this past summer at Deb’s Flowerbed Farm in Bridgton, ME. Her shop is stock full of treasures. I also found the glasses there and (after a lot of research) I did identify them. The pattern is Jersey Swirl and the were made by LG Wright around 1950 in an opalescent treatment. I grew up in New Jersey so they should have come home with me. I am trying not to acquire “stuff” unless I know what it is.
The wine glass is Ballet by Fostoria and was made from 1952-1965.
The Hobnail sugar and creamer were made by Fenton Glass and I have had them for a while. The Caprice plate is layered with an Apilco dinner plate. A few years back I worked for Williams Sonoma – need I say more!
The butter dish, salt and pepper, and divided relish tray are vintage Fenton Hobnail.
The stainless flatware is from Williams-Sonoma. I am not sure where I got the napkin rings.
Be sure to stop by Between Naps on the Porch and see all the pretty dishes.
