Veteran's Day Tablescape

 With elections behind us, it's time to look forward to November holidays and celebrations. Pat loves to set a patriotic table - so Veteran's Day is the perfect excuse to haul out the red, white and blue dinnerware ("Colonial" by Warren Kimble for Sakura) and set a happy table.
Purchased just before her passing in 1997, the dinnerware belonged to our Mother who also suffered from our "dish addiction" disease. Mom taught us well......
Just a simple centerpiece - three rustic red lanterns

Mom bought the napkin rings before she bought the dinnerware

The charger is "Royal Blue" Color Spectrum by Mikasa
Pat wanted a rustic looking flatware - she chose "Castello" stainless steel by Godinger 

One last look from the other end of the table

Where it came from:
Water Hyacinth Place Mats - from Tuesday Morning two years ago
Charger - "Royal Blue" Color Spectrum by Mikasa from and eBay
Dinnerware - from our Mother's collection
Flatware - "Castello" hammered flatware by Godinger from Costco years ago
Napkin Rings - also from our Mother
Stitched Off white Napkins - from Pier 1 last year
Bread and Butter Plate - Post 86 "Cobalt" Fiesta(ware) [newer] by Homer Laughlin from
Glassware - "Picardy" from Pier 1 four years ago
Rustic Red Lanterns - from Pier 1 two or three years ago

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


  1. That's a great table for Veteran's Day! Or any time you feel patriotic. How wonderful that you carry on your mother's "dish addiction" and are using her dinnerware on this lovely table.

  2. I always enjoy your tables, perhaps now more than ever. It has been a very lonely time for most of us. We simply do not see others as often as we used to. And, when we do, it is difficult. My Dad is 94 and masks keep him from understanding us because his hearing and eyesight are waning. We were fortunate to have some sunny, warm weather so my sister ( Dad lives with her) set a cute table outdoors, which made things easier for all. We were able to sit apart, without masks, in the sunshine and enjoy seeing each other smile! I love the red/white/blue dishes in this post. How wonderful that you both shared this "dish sickness" with your mother!
