Spode Buttercup Tablescape

As the State continues to shut down (again) around us, Pat showed up to do at least one more table. This time she chose one of her favorites - Spode Buttercup. [She had so many place settings that she gave me eight for my own collection - I'm a lucky sister....She still has eighteen settings left.]
Spode "Buttercup" was produced from 1924 until 2003. Both the "older" and "newer" (1960-2003) versions were among the most popular dinnerware ever produced. [Both versions were listed in Harry Rinker's book Dinnerware of the 20th Century: The Top 500 Patterns.]

The flatware is Italian "Roma" from Horchow

The surprisingly light-weight wooden chargers are from Pier 1 several years ago

Not only did I get the dinnerware as a gift, Pat's daughter bought me the "Espresso" glassware to go with it.

Since the pattern of the dinnerware is "busy," Pat used a simple centerpiece of greenery

From the other end of the table
Where it came from:
Wooden Chargers - from Pier 1 several years ago
Dinnerware - "Buttercup" by Spode from Pat
Glassware - "Espresso Brown" by Lenox from Pat's daughter
Flatware - "Roma" by Domus Designs (Italian) from Horchow two or three years ago
Ivory Napkins and Matching Tablecloth - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond last year
Wooden Candle Holders - from Pat's collection

This week, we will be joining "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch: 


  1. So pretty, the dishes are lovely and those chargers are wonderful. Rustic and fancy at the same time! I always enjoy seeing your tables and hope you can set more in the coming days. But above all, stay safe and stay well!

  2. Wonderful composition! I especially like the flatware but each element is envy-worthy.

  3. What a perfectly stunning tablescape! WOW!

    Stay well.

  4. Love the way the wooden charger enhances the reddish scrollwork in the china design. A perfect blend.

  5. I have always loved that pattern, and the Lenox is perfect with it !!!!

  6. Lucky you!!! What a nice family you have and now also fantastic china pattern. I always drool over this china. The coffee pot, tea pot and large tureen at are fab in beauty and design as well. Enjoy your blog! I'm often peeking in.
