Lenox "The Colonial" Tablescape

This is the last week of our month-long blue and white tablescapes - we are finishing up with one of my all time favorite patterns. It is called "The Colonial" by Lenox. Yes, we have a lot of dishes, and yes, I have a lot of  "favorites," but this one is absolutely gorgeous - at least to me. Pat mixed it up a bit using two chargers and inexpensive glassware.
Lenox "The Colonial" was manufactured from 1920 through 1948 - not exactly a "modern" pattern. I love the delicate floral swags and urns on the rim.

Flatware is "Gold Iconic" by Wallace

The off-white charger is "Mansfield" by Lenox

The bright blue metal chargers are from Pier 1

  1. Hi Pat and Katie,
    I saw this beautiful table setting at Life and Linda and had to come see more! There's always something extra special about blue and white and when you add gold accents, it just puts it over the top. Beautiful! Very nice to find your beautiful blog as well :)

  2. Hi Pat & Katie!
    This is beautiful. I have to say that I have never done tablescapes, but this is definitely makes me want to start. Thanks for sharing at Table It! :)

  3. Gorgeous table. The colors are stunning. I love the color in your charger plate from Pier 1. I have not seen one that color before and would love to find some like that. Love love love the gold and blue balls in the basket for your centerpiece.

  4. Oh, my, those Lenox dishes are works of art. You've accented them perfectly with everything from the flatware to the napkin rings! You've done it again, Ladies. I'll miss you blue and white tables next month. Thanks for the treats all month.
