Lemons, Daffodils, Cabbages and Things

Be sure to visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more Tablescape Thursday posts.
Since the white tablewares are vintage, I am also linking to Suzanne’s Vintage Thingies Thursday. See more posts listed by Suzanne at Coloradolady.

I have prepared a luncheon table set with motifs of spring daffodils, summer lemons and other touches of warm seasons. Vintage white dinner plates, bread and butter plates, cups and saucers, creamer and sugar, play off leafy green ceramics from Portugal.

Placemats – lemon shaped quilted cotton from Marshalls
Napkins – lemon striped damask by Waterford
Napkin rings – Ceramic daffodils
Flatware – Towle "London Shell" silverplate, and sterling forks with bone handles
Goblets – Fostoria "Virginia" in brown

Canonsburg "American Traditional" dinner plates are layered with Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf luncheon plates , Wedgwood ivy Embossed Queens Ware bread and butter plates, topped with with Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf bowls. Wedgwood “Patrician” cups and saucers are nearby.


A pair of Bordallo Pinheiro candlesticks with yellow Federal candles from Wal-Mart,
A Bordallo Pinheiro leaf plate and cup hold frilly white flowers,
Green ceramic limes and yellow ceramic lemon salt and pepper shakers

Pineapple teapot from Metropolitan Museum Store, made in the Philippines.
Canonsburg "American Traditional" Sugar and Creamer

Thanks for stopping by today. I would love to read your comment. Come back soon....

I'm a sucker for the Portuguese majolica dishes you have. I have a few myself. Love how you combined them together.

I love the cabbage dishes from Portugal! There was a store in Montreal that carried all those cool dishes: fruits,eggplant, lobsters you name it that had it! Too bad it's closed now.

Happy VTT

All of your bordello dinnerware is just fabulous. I so love that and have looked forever for some on sale, but not yet. Such a beautiful tablescape. I love the green and yellow. Those candlesticks are just fabulous too. Gorgeous table. Hugs, Marty

What a way to summon spring! We got snow here (again) this morning. What I wouldn't give to have a bright and cheery table like yours to look at and take away the dreary white and grey outside, so pretty!

Hello Carrie!
We have lost track of each other, haven't we? I updated my blog template a couple of times, and although I had saved the html, I lost track of my links. I slowly build them again! Anyway, this is a lovely table setting. I love cabbage pottery and daffodils are currently springing up in a pot in my balcony. Just beautiful and so bright!
I;ll stay around fro a while to catch up a bit. So glad you stopped by and thank you for the thoughtful comment!
P.S. Happy 2010!
