Castleton Rose Tablescape

Pat set this week's table with our newest "favorite" dinnerware - "Castleton Rose" (1950-1972) by the Castleton China Company. Pat recently found it at a local Hospice thrift store reduced from $300 for a complete set in pristine condition for 12 to $95. It was love at first sight.....
Pat started with an ivory colored tablecloth and then added ecru colored lace place mats

Although it looks like I didn't iron the tablecloth, I really did.....

Gold colored flatware seemed like the perfect choice for the place setting - "Antique Baroque" by Wallace

Glassware is "Omega" Marquis by Waterford

Pat mixed in more mauve and purple colored flowers to an arrangement she had already done

From the other end of the table

  1. What a great find - service for 12 for $95! I would have snapped that up, too. My grandmother's china was Castleton, a different pattern (Sunnyvale) but with many of the same colors and flowers. It went to a cousin but I've gotten a few pieces of it, just for nice memories. This makes a lovely table, I'm so glad you shared it with us.
