This has been another very busy week, so I am late posting for Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I will be sharing what I’ve done so far for the Mother’s Day tablesetting.
I am still lacking pink candles, flowers, and chargers. So far each place setting includes dinner, dessert, and bread and butter plates and cups and saucers. The china is Royal Albert "Lady Carlyle."
The tablecloth and napkins are in a very pale pink hemstitched linen. The flatware is gold with a floral embossing. The gold napkin rings echo the flatware.
Providing temporary embellishment are faux roses from one of last year’s Mother’s Day cakes, a Lady Carlyle cake plate on a Martha Stewart clear glass cake stand,; also white candles. I plan to use a fresh flowers in a vase and pink candles.
The tall goblet is Lenox "Autumn.." Colored Depression glass goblets or pilsner glasses are the second glass at each setting. Gilt fruit are scattered around and help pull out the gilt rims of the china.
Since it has been raining the past few days and will continue through Sunday, the tea set will provide for nice hot tea.
