I chose a handmade runner as the foundation for my table. It's made with reproduction 30's fabrics in a rainbow of colors. Now... what shall we put on it? You know I tend to choose an explosion of colors, but somehow it seemed appropriate to use a simpler palette. I pulled vintage Fiesta in cobalt and ivory from the china cabinet, because I'm sure her coworkers are BLUE to be seeing her less, and IVORY for fresh new start. The striped salad plates were part of a special cake set for Montgomery Ward in the 1930's. (I know, I really MEANT to just use plain plates, but the stripe matched the flatware so nicely, what could I do??)
The flatware was a special surprise from the Flatware Fairy just a couple of weeks ago, so this is its first appearance on my table. Glassware is a mix: the dots are vintage finds, and the stems are contemporary from Pier1. The Blue Willow teapot is vintage Homer Laughlin in the Wells shape.
Welcome Home, D! We love you!
