Welcome to the 101st Tablescape Thursday!
67. What is that number? That’s how many knock-down gorgeous tablescapes I have visited so far, from our 100th Tablescape Thursday celebration last week. As you can see, I’m still have quite a few more to go…and I WILL visit each lovely link. If I haven’t been by your blog yet, I’m coming!
Unfortunately, some folks are not using permalinks…big no-no…so that’s making it extra hard for me (and others) to find the tablescape post. When I click on a link that isn’t a permalink, I will sometimes find myself looking at the current post that’s about something non-tablescape related.
If you are one of the folks who isn’t linking a permalink when joining a blog party, but instead, you’re linking your general blog address…I must caution you that most readers are not going to take the time to scroll and scroll to find your tablescape post. Instead, most readers will most likely exit from you blog…frustrated that they clicked looking for a tablescape and the link was no good.
So, please, please, please use your post’s permalink, not your general blog address. If you don’t know what a permalink is or how to get it, please click on the Tablescape Thursday link just under my header pic, and you’ll find the directions there. Fortunately, most of you are using permalinks…thank you for that!
Well, it’s been a long time since we took a trip out of the country…I think it’s time! Cornelia has invited us back to her beautiful home in Switzerland and after a lovely night’s rest, she is spoiling us with breakfast on the balcony.
Spoiling us, indeed! Would you just look at our view! WOW!
Cornelia didn’t want us to get overheated, so she’s extended the awning just for us. Now, while you sip your orange juice…or is that a Mimosa…I’ll let Cornelia fill us in on the beautiful tablescape she’s created.
Cornelia told me, “The China is “Le Ballon” from Villeroy & Boch. It was made in the 80′s and has been discontinued.
“The set consists of 6 different patterns on the plates: Cologne, Copenhagen, Luxembourg, Venice, London and New York.
“It shows pictures by Jean Mercier. He was a French Artist born 1899.
“He is best known for his decor of the grand ballroom of the MS FRANCE.
“There is another design of Paris on the cake plate.
“The mugs, oval pickle dish, the cups, the bowls, the coffeepot, the teapot, the square cake platter, the creamer and covered sugar box all have different designs.
“The sterling silver flatware is by Jezler; the pattern is called, Centenaire.
“The stemware is vintage crystal.
“The champagne glasses are from the former German Democratic Republic. The pattern is called, Maria Theresia.
“The tablecloth is custom made by Solenzara of Hamburg/Germany. The fabric is French, showing Montgolfiers.
“The vase is silver by Jezler. They flowers are from my garden (Rhododendron). The underplate is German silver.
“The garden furniture is by FEROB/France.”
Cornelia, thank you so much for sharing the origin/history of the wonderful china you’ve used to create this beautiful table setting.
Not only was the tablescape wonderful, but the views from your balcony are just stunning!
Looking forward to viewing your beautiful tablescapes!
