Mother's Day/Parent's Anniversary Tablescape

Since we can finally get together as a family and safely have dinners again (at least for now), Pat wanted to celebrate our parent's wedding anniversary - it would have been 76 years on April 22nd - and combine it with Mother's Day. [So you will know how weird our family is and how we will celebrate almost anything, we are getting together Friday night with the theme of Depression Era food. Our brother is fixing his "famous" Hoover Stew* as the main course, and the rest of us are coming up with side dishes and desserts. It's going to be great fun! Dinnerware will be casual and from that era, too.] 
The dinnerware for this table is formal "Spring Bouquet" by Lenox

Pat used gold flatware to bring out the gold verge on the plate

To me, the best part of this pattern is the fluted edging of the plate.
Glassware is "Fedora" by Spegielau

  1. What a lovely table! That china is so pretty, with the fluted borders and soft colors. I look forward to seeing your "Depression Era" table, too, that party sounds like great fun.

  2. Beautiful! And what a sweet way to honor your parents. I love that you all celebrate anything! :) Thanks for the inspiration.
