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.
