A few weeks ago I brought my lovely French terracotta children inside and placed them on my dining room table. Today I decided to add a summery table setting and share a couple of my recent finds.
I layered them on an April Cornell tablecloth and sage green woven placemat.
A flat of multi-colored zinnias makes a pretty centerpiece.
I found this fabulous set of vintage Wm. Rogers silverplate flatware on craigslist. It's a neoclassic design in perfect condition. I only paid $25 for 48 pieces plus the silverware box! I've been searching for some vintage silver to use for the tablescape I'll be doing for my women's club's annual Christmas Idea House. I think I found it!
The Fostoria company used to make some of America's most popular stemware. The factory was only a couple of hours away from our home in Pittsburgh, PA. Every so often my mom and her girlfriends would take a day trip and go shopping to one of the original factory outlets. Sadly the company shut down in the 1980's. This is the Jamestown pattern and yes, my mom has this too. I found 4 of these last week at the Goodwill for $1.99 each.
