Red Toile Revisited for Tablescape Thursday

Thursday's mean Tablescape Thursday hosted by our gracious host Susan over at Betweennapsontheporch. Be sure to click here to see the full list of participant's and all of their beautiful tablescapes. Sometimes life gets in the way and you just get busy. This is a post I did awhile back and thought of happier times so thought I would re post it for this week's Tablescape Thursday. These photos were taken with the old camera so I apologize for the grainy look. I hope my skills have improved since then. lol

I have to say Thursdays are one of my favorite days of the week.. I get to take out the many pieces of china I have and play.. Mr. P. just shakes his head each week when I start this process.
My love of toile goes back many years. When I found this set of dishes it was love at first sight. I ordered them immediately from a company I purchase from occasionally.
This morning I cut the ends of the roses and then chose the teapot as the centerpiece. I think they're a perfect fit. :-) A while back I spotted these beautiful monogrammed candles. Thankfully, they had 2 that day. With our last name starting with "P" they had to come home with me.
With the teapot being used I chose to lay the lid to the side of the teapot. I think it makes it's own statement.

I chose my gold chargers purchased last summer from TJ Maxx. They were a bargain at $3.99 each. I love the special shape of them. You'll also find the gold flatware.

Oops... this one is out of order.. but oh so pretty. Aren't they gorgeous?

A heart shaped dish. Perfect for a table set for 2 on this special day.
I think the crystal dish is perfect for serving jelly out of for our rolls.

I'm sure many of you recognize the vintage linens I purchased awhile back. I chose them today for the napkin.

Be sure to stop by http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot/ . A big thank you to Susan for hosting another beautiful Thursday full of beautiful tablescapes.
As you leave today feel free to take a rose with you and give to your loved one
hugs ~lynne~

The Tablescaper said...

Dear Lynne:
I love your table and we can't let those that shake thier heads at us bother us. That's the wonderful thing about Tablescape Thursday. It gives us the push to pull out our "stuff" and share it with others who enjoy it. Some days it takes more of an effort than others, but I always find it's worth it. You eluded to happier times. I hope they find their way to you soon. My life has been a bit crazy lately and I had to put a bunch of stuff on the floor to pull of my tablescape, but I'm glad I did. Somehow the creativity of it all fills me with joy. Hang in there. Happy Tablescaping.

Romantic, is the first word that came to my mind. The pink tinged roses and the gorgeous linens go perfectly with the toile dishes...just stunning.

jerseygirl211 said...

Lynne,

I love this table setting. I have such a hard time resisting all the red toile that I find on eBay, but I just don't have the need for any more dishes or a place to keep them. Maybe in my next life. ;)

Hugs
