Edme Garden Club Table

One of our very favorite patterns to set a table with is Wedgwood's "Edme." Pat decided to use our "Edme Garden Club" luncheon plates this week after spotting a lace tablecloth in the closet.
Pat put down a bright green tablecloth to use as a liner before she put the lace one on the table



Flatware is "April" by International Silver







Where it came from:
Lace Tablecloth - purchased online several years ago
Green Tablecloth - from Linentablecloth.com (a great place to find inexpensive tablecloths)
Green Charger - inexpensive lacquer charger found on sale and spray painted with plastic adhesive "Fusion" spray paint
Dinnerware - "Edme" by Wedgwood from Replacements.com and eBay
Luncheon Plate - "Garden Club" by Wedgwood from eBay
Flatware - "April" Silverplate by International Silver from Pat
Glassware - "Fedora" by Spiegelau Crystal from Replacements.com
Off-white Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Green Napkin Rings - PVC pipe cut into 1" rounds and spray painted to match chargers

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:

Chickens and Sunflowers Tablescape

This week's table was set just for fun (and, truth be told - to use accent plates that we have had around for a long time.)



I love the flatware - "French Rooster" by Cuisinart from Amazon







Pat's sweet husband cut these placemat "liners" from a roll of chicken wire


I promise that these glasses are squeaky clean. Pat makes me clean and "polish" all the glassware before they go on the table. It's just really overcast today (and currently 58 degrees outside) and hard to get any decent pictures.





From the other end of the table

Turquoise and Apricot Table

One of the more popular color combinations right now is blue and orange. Pat decided to set this week's table using a new set of flowered turquoise dishes she recently bought at Pier 1 and paired it with apricot.



Flatware is "Grand Colonial" by Wallace and was given to Pat and me by our very kind and generous Cousins




Pat layered a lace placemat on this apricot hemstitch placemat


Although this "Rosaline" glassware is called pink, it has orange tones and works well with this table






Where it came from:
Apricot Hemstitch Place Mat and matching napkin - from Pier 1 last year
Lace Placemat  - from Lentz Department Store (a local store now out of business) several years ago
Dinnerware - "Danielle's Flower" from Pier 1 this year
Flatware - "Grand Colonial" sterling silver by Wallace (a gift from our wonderful but dish-addicted Cousins)
Napkin Ring - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond two years ago
Glassware - "Rosaline" by Cristal D'Arques-Durand from eBay and Replacements.com
Apricot Candles - from Pier 1 two years ago
Silk Flowers - from Michael's
