Spode's Glen Lodge Pheasant

When I spotted this fabulous china pattern at B. D. Jeffries, one of Atlanta's nicest gift stores, I fell in LOVE!  I kept thinking and thinking about it and decided that I'd spring for it.  Before I went back to buy it, what did I find at Homegoods????  Four salad plates!  And then, at another Homegoods, I couldn't believe that they had four dinner plates.  I had those at the cash wrap faster than you could believe.

This guy was destined to be the centerpiece at this table.  I put him on a styrofoam base that I filled with mixed greens.

Once I added some glass ornaments, silk hydrangeas, pine cone and feathers, I was pleased with the centerpiece.

Here's the way the place setting stacked up.  I started with a light colored straw placemat, than added a bird's eye maple charger.  Then the dinner plate and the salad plate.

Here's the dinner plate by itself.  It is "Glen Lodge Pheasant" by Spode.  I admit that B.D. Jeffries had the same line with a stag as well, and I was torn.  But then when the miracle occurred at Homegoods, the decision was easily made.

Doesn't it go together well?  

I used this flatware that gets a lot of use, and on top of the hunter green napkin, instead of a napkin ring, I placed a little pheasant that I took right off of the Christmas tree!

These stems are Imperial Glass, and they have been around forever.  The wicker covered glasses are used as stemless wine glasses.  The inserts slip right out to go into the dishwasher. 

And look who else was waiting to join the party!  These salt and pepper shakers don't hold much, but I don't mind refilling, as they are so cute.

I finished the table off with these old wooden candlesticks and brown candles.  



Our grandsons call this guy Phil.  I think it suits him.

But I'm not so sure he likes it!
