Welcome, to one of my favorite days of the week, Tablescape Thursday. I love my dishes, and I love to mix and match them to create new looks. Today’s tablescape is simple, but elegant. I chose some of my china and crystal and mixed it with a set of my great grandmother’s Limoges China. My great grandmother was married in November of 1915. The Limoges China was her wedding pattern and was used throughout her life. She had nine children, and it always graced the table of large family dinners. My mother remembers her grandmother using this china for holiday dinners even as the family grew to include children’s spouses and grandchildren. It has been well loved and well worn which makes it all the more special.
The underpinning I chose was a ivory lace tablecloth along with ivory damask placemats and napkins. The china is anchored on gold chargers. I chose Mikasa English Countryside as the bottom plate of the plate stack. I placed my Great Grandmother’s Limoges China atop. Mikasa Golden Tiara crystal and Onieda Michelangelo flatware finish off the place setting.
Below is a close up of my Great Grandmother’s Limoges China.
I love the cream soup bowls.
I chose a simple centerpiece of an orchid flanked by crystal candlesticks with ivory candles.
Thank you so much for stopping by for Tablescape Thursday. I will be back next week to reveal the bonus room makeover. I hope that you have a blessed and wonderful weekend!!!
