Formal Flintridge Midnight Rose Table

It's been a while since we used our formal Flintridge "Midnight Rose" dinnerware - Pat and I found it at a yard sale a few years ago for under $20. It was in pristine condition, and considering it was a complete set of eight 5-piece place settings, we couldn't pass it up.
Produced from 1964 through 1972 by the California-based Flintridge China Company, the vintage pattern features a double platinum band with a black and platinum rose on a coupe plate

Pat used a highly polished, modern black flatware to contrast with the vintage look of the plate

You can see the double band of platinum better in this picture - I always think of the amazing skill it takes to hand apply it.....(I really am a dish nerd.)

The charger is one of our favorites - Black "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

Just wanted to show the style of the footed cup - also with a double band of platinum

Pat used these elegant "Midnight Black" goblets by Artland for more of a modern look

Talk about mixing periods - Pat used Depression Glass "Mt. Pleasant" double candle holders for part of the centerpiece

One last look from the other end of the table
 Where it came from:
Chargers - Black "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa from eBay and
Dinnerware - "Midnight Rose" by Flintridge (1964-1972) purchased at a yard sale
Flatware - Pattern unknown by Jankng from eBay
Glassware - "Midnight Black" by Artland from Target years ago
Napkins - from (an internet site for inexpensive table linens and other tablescaping supplies)
Napkin Rings - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond several years ago
Depression Glass Double light Candle Holders - "Mt. Pleasant" by LE Smith Glass Company from our collection

This week, we will be joining "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch: 
Not expensive, not highly sought after.....I just think it is gorgeous anyway.


  1. This is truly a gorgeous and dramatic tablesetting! A few months ago I obtained a set of dinner and bread/butter plates in the Flintridge strata snow tulip pattern and have used them a few times already. Flintridge china was manufactured in Pasadena, where I live and I've become a fan of their patterns. Thank you for sharing your tablescape.

  2. I like the modern and vintage combination, this makes a stunning tablescape.

  3. This post really caught my eye because of the title. My Mom attended Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy La Canada Flintridge, CA long before this china was produced. Roses are part of the ceremonies there so this pattern seems to be a good match. I'm going to see if I can find a couple of pieces for Mom. Thank you!
