Tablescape Tuesday – Simple Luncheon

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

Welcome to my table which is set for a luncheon of soup and sandwiches. We will have our soup from small bowls by Bordallo Pinheiro. They are set on small ivory embossed Queens Ware plates. The dinner plate is a cabbage leaf, also by Bordallo Pinheiro.

Soup is served from an ivory covered bowl in a pattern called "Fashion" by Knowles.

Should you desire a bit more seasoning, a divided green and white pear salt and pepper shakers are right at hand.

Our dessert plates are also embossed ivory.

The goblets are brown glass.

Cloth napkins in a floral pattern of deep pinks and green add color to setting.
The cloth placemats are oval with dainty cream on cream embroidery.

Since this is the fall harvest season the centerpiece is a large white ceramic pumpkin along with its smaller version. I put some dried hydrangeas and a colorful sprig in the larger pumpkin.

-Cabbage leaf by Bordallo Pinheiro - Made in Portugal
-Wedgwood Embossed Queens Ware is a cream-on-cream pattern featuring embossed grape clusters, vines and leaves around the rims. They were produced in England circa the 1940's.
-"Fashion" Covered Vegetable Serving Dish by Edwin M. Knowles China Co. 1936.
-Wedgwood Etruria "Patrician" is cream colored with flowers and scrolls. Made in England.

-Brown "Virginia" goblets by Fostoria
-White ceramic pumpkins purchased Sept. 2008 at TJ Maxx.

I’ve enjoyed your coming today. For more table settings please see the list of participants at Susan’s blog.

Hi Carrie...I came by earlier and your TT post wasn't up yet, so I'm glad I came back by or I'd have missed seeing such a pretty setting! I'd love to have these dishes and the pear salt & pepper or the cutest! Nicely done. ;-) Bo
