Well, our table this week uses classic Spode "Buttercup" in a new and very updated way - with lots of color and pizazz (can "Buttercup" really has pizazz????) Anyway, Pat mixed a very sweet, old fashioned pattern with updated yellow and green colors for what she called "something different." She was tired of the traditional blue or brown accent colors that she had always used. Time for a change.....
Over view of the table - put your sunglasses on.....I finally got Pat to use "Buttercup" on a tablescape for the blog. Instead of her typical elegant and refined place settings with this pattern, she uses bright yellow!!
The place setting - you can see how sweet the dish pattern really is
Lime green flatware - instead of silver......
Pat used simple glassware to "tone down" the color a bit
The swirl candle holders hold 14" tapers
One of the really unique pieces in this pattern - a small, square butter dish and lid
The soup tureen is one of Pat's prized pieces. For what she paid for it, I should have armed guards.....please, let there be no earthquakes until I return it.
