Crane with Pine Tablescape

One of my very favorite Fitz & Floyd dinnerware patterns is "Crane with Pine" (1987-1994.) Unfortunately, we only own the Accent/Salad plates, but they still make a stunning table when used with other patterns.

Flatware is Byzantine by Yamazaki

The black Fiesta(ware) luncheon plate was added to "frame" the accent plate

One of our most used  "work horse" plates - it is "Spice Route Paprika" from Pier 1. The color matches the red on the crane.

The charger is "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

We found these neat napkin rings for $.50 each last year.

  1. What a gorgeous tablescape. I love all the lovely details on the table and touch of gold. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!! I am drooling over your "Byzantine" flatware and your Fitz and FLoyd salad plates are truly pieces of art. I love this tablescape!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  3. What a lovely table! The red plates bring out that touch of red in the crane's head, without overpowering. Just beautiful.
