Mom is visiting and she is very much a blue and white girl. We had a lazy morning planned together, so I set the breakfast table with a tablescape I thought she would love. I used a common, but beautiful china pattern called Asiatic Pheasant.
I've had these old blue and white linens for a long time. I wish they could tell me about some of the dinners that they have "seen". Someone loved them very much, as they are in beautiful shape.
Here's the design on the table square before I set it with dishes. The embroidery is simply breathtaking.
Just two for a lovely morning!
Here are the details on the pattern name and stamp.
I set the Asiatic Pheasant on a white scalloped plate from Z Gallerie, and used some of my mis-matched silver plate flatware.
I used this pearl handled knife. I never use it if the food is not very easy to cut, as I'm fearful that the handle will come off. That has happened to some similar serving pieces that I own.
These individual salt and pepper shakers seemed to be perfect for the morning.
Whole Foods had these very soft blue hydrangeas that were perfect to go with the linen cloth.
This held lingonberry jam for Mom and lemon curd for me. I used cream soup spoons for the jam.
I love a French butter keeper and this bright white one is very adaptable to many tablescapes.
Someone gave me this blue and white wine coaster.
I use it here to hold a porcelain topped water bottle.
The cobalt blue juice glass was the only strong shot of strong color.
I love spoiling my mom a bit!
I'll be posting at the following blog parties:Tablescape Thursday
