Where do you find inspiration for your tablescapes? Typically, my inspirations never come from the same place two times in a row. Today I happened across a selection of antique English Oak pieces that I hadn't thought about in quite a while, and I was off and running.
book and had been searching for one of my own for a long time. The day that I found it, I was definitely doing a happy dance. Since I'm your buy everything possible in pairs girl, I'm still looking for a mate for my bowl. Some day....
A pair of English Oak biscuit/cookie jars contributed handsomely to my wooden vignette. One was an eBay find and one was discovered in a local antique store. One of these would make a delightful centerpiece for a smaller round table.
A quartet of Barley Twist candlesticks provided the finishing touch for the centerpiece. Plop, plop, plop, and I was done. So easy...so lovely.
The Williams - Sonoma striped linen tablecloth set a subtle tone for the luncheon.
From the bottom: The Caspari rattan charger held the Wedgwood Queens Plain dinner plate and the Copeland Spode Tower Pink luncheon plate. The Tower Pink was the everyday pattern that Sweet Mister's family used every day. We are blessed to shepherd these dear old dishes through this generation. We also use them as one of our everyday patterns. Their familiarity is heart warming; they bring a quiet smile each time that I pull them out of the cabinet. A caramel colored hemstitched napkin held by my Cuisine Kathleen's beaded napkin rings balanced atop the stack of dishes.
Beverages were served in the Vieri amber and the AJKA Arabella red goblets.
