Last of Summer Coastal Table

With uncharacteristically record high temperatures (80's, 90s, and even 100 degrees in some local areas - most people don't have air conditioning since our normal temperatures hover around the high 60's in Summer) and horrible fires raging in many parts of the county, it was time to put aside the bad stuff going on here and around the country. Pat decided to set a typical coastal table for our area of California.
The Northern coastal community of Eureka, California is known for its seafood, bay, surrounding Redwoods, and Victorian houses - quite a combination but it's a beautiful area to live. Pat chose the seaside for the theme to this week's table.

White on White Tablescape

This week's table features one of my very favorite vintage patterns: Hutschenreuther's "Racine (1900-1986)." It has slightly embossed scalloped rims that look so fragile but are really pretty tough. And it is pure white which is somewhat out of the norm for me - I usually choose a "busy" pattern.

Pat decided to feature all white for the table to show off the dinnerware.
All white with a hint of silver.....
