Noritake Momentum Springtime Tablescape

For this week's table, Pat mixed ultra modern-styled Noritake "Momentum" dinnerware with pink  Depression glass "American Sweetheart" (1930-1936) by MacBeth-Evans Glass Company. 
The table is set in various tones of pink and gray

Flatware is satin finish "Kyoto Frost" by Holister
Pat often uses sherbets for serving shrimp cocktails or appetizers before a meal 

We used this charger last week but it worked well with this week's dinnerware, too.
I love it when Pat uses this once very popular glassware set - "Esprit" by Princess House. I remember how many "crystal parties" I attended to get a complete set of them....

Since we used cups and saucers on the table, Pat set out two different sets of Depression Glass sugar and creamers
The centerpiece consists of four vases (actually "Lady Diamond" highball/tumblers by Cristal D'Arques) with pink silk roses. People always ask about why we use silk flowers so much - sadly, with another year of predicted drought following several years of record breaking dryness in the past, flowers in the yard are becoming a flowers do not need water to be beautiful.

From the other end of the table

Where it came from:
Dark Gray Place Mats and matching napkins - from Tuesday Morning two or three years ago
Charger - Rose "Color Spectrum" (1992-1993) by Mikasa from eBay and
Dinnerware - "Momentum" by Noritake (1991-1999) from eBay and
Sherbet and Liner - "American Sweetheart" by MacBeth-Evans (1930-1936) from whereever we can find it (eBay,, antique stores, yard sales, etc.)
Flatware - "Kyoto Frost" by Holister from Wayfair five years ago
Glassware - "Esprit" by Princess House many, many years ago
Flower Vases - "Lady Diamond" Highball/tumbler glass by Cristal D'Arques from Ross nine or ten years ago
Silk Roses - from Michael's last year

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


  1. Silk roses??! They are wonderful!Exquisite table! Balm to the soul...

  2. So pretty! Pink Depression Glass will always be my favorite, as it started my "collecting" passion when I was a teenager. And the dishes and chargers and everything else go together to make a lovely table. Thank you for sharing the loveliness!
