Spode Pink Tower Tablescape

For a long time, we have wanted to use our Spode Pink Tower dishes for a tablescape for the blog, but for one reason or another, we always put it off. Now is the time. Pat wanted to dress it up a bit this time (it is a very versatile pattern and can easily go from casual to classic), so she pulled out some silver and some crystal and came up with the table.

This is a bullion cup

Waterford and sterling silver.......WOW!!!! (We have a wonderful cousin that we borrow from once in a while.)

From the other end of the table

Where it came from:
Silver Baroque Lacquer Chargers - Michael's
Dinnerware - "Pink Tower" by Spode from where ever we could find it
Flatware - "Grand Colonial" Sterling Silver by Wallace (a gift from our Cousin)
Crystal Glassware - "Omega" Marquis by Waterford
Silver Goblets and Butter Pats - Borrowed from our Cousin
Crystal Candle Holders - from Pat's collection
16" Tapers - from the Ferndale Emporium (a really neat local boutique)
Napkins - vintage from our collection

We will be joining Christine's "Table It!" at Rustic & Refined:

We will also be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. This is a beautiful table! It would be perfect for Valentine's Day. The setting is elegant without being intimidating, and the dishes are lovely, adding just the right touch of red (my favorite color!).

  2. Gorgeous! What more could one say....

  3. Pat could you please tell me ball park figure of course just how many sets of dishes you two own? do you have storage bins full in many cities to house them all?Susie

  4. Your transferware is to die for...absolutely gorgeous! Love this table!

  5. That's my silver pattern! How fun to see it!
