Tablescape Tuesday

Tablescape Tuesday is sponsored by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

My photos are of the tablesetting for Mother’s Day back in May this year. It is set in my dining room and was for nine diners.

The tablecloth was off-white or ecru with handpainted dark pink roses and Battenberg lace insets around the border and in the center.

The place settings consisted of a Spode "Consul" dinner plate on a brass charger, gilt flatware, Lenox "Autumn" goblets. The napkins matching the tablecloth were in a gilt floral napkin ring and set on the plate. The gilt flatware coordinated with the gilt edging on the plates and goblets.

The centerpiece was a cobalt ceramic ginger jar with pink flowers. The cobalt picked up the border of the plates.

Thank you for stopping by today. For more tablesettings see the list of participants at Susan’s blog.
