Mixing Patterns Tablescape

Pat had nothing particularly in mind when she started this week's table. Casual? Formal? Family friendly? She just didn't know.....So she grabbed a few "items" that looked like they may go together and here is what she came up with:

Mikasa, Lenox, and Fitz and Floyd dinnerware with Wedgwood accents - I think it all blended well....

The napkins were folded in a "flower" fold and placed on butter pats

Flatware is gold "Antique Baroque" by Wallace

Not a fan of Fitz and Floyd, Pat used this salad plate ("Palace Peony") anyway to "appease" me....I love it.

Lenox "Mansfield" is a family favorite. Pat's daughter selected this pattern when she got married (as well as our "dish addicted" Cousin, Trev and me, of course.)

This charger has become a "workhorse" for us - we use it a lot. It's Rose "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa.

Pat used Wedgwood "Edme" candle holders, vase, and butter pats because the color matched.
