Welcome to the 246th Tablescape Thursday!
Spring arrived in early May for my friend Cornelia, who lives in the beautiful country of Switzerland.
Cornelia celebrated by dining in her garden enveloped in the scent of lilacs and wisteria. The wisteria vine climbing the back of Cornelia’s home was just beginning to bloom.
I’m always amazed at how big a wisteria vine can get. It really is beautiful and the scent is absolutely amazing! I used wisteria in a table setting for Easter a while back and was surprised by how quickly it wilts once cut. That table setting can be viewed here: Spring Easter Table Setting with Wisteria Centerpiece
Cornelia has a beautiful garden! We’ll have to get her to take us on a tour one day so we can see what flowers grow in a Switzerland garden. (Hint, Hint)
A beautiful table in a wonderful garden setting. Does it get any better than this? 🙂
Cornelia shared some information about the elements she used to create this table setting. She said, “The tablecloth and the napkins are made by Sander, a German manufactory.”
The plate on top is Nymphenburg made in Bavaria.
The salad plate is Meissen. The pattern is Deutsche Blume and is hand-painted. Sterling cutlery is Jezler.
Dinner plate is Herend, also hand-painted. I fell in love with Herend while on a home tour several years ago. The pattern that stole my heart was Rothschild Bird. You can read about my Herend obsession here: Herend, Rothschild Bird…My New Obsession
The crystal bowl is Baccarat, made in France. Stunning!
Cornelia said, every plate has a different pattern in this table setting. Love that!
The glasses are hand-cut crystal and were made in the former German Democratic Republic and in Bohemia.
The beautiful lilacs are from Cornelia’s garden.
Cornelia placed them in a sterling silver vase, also Jezler.
So much fun dining in Cornelia’s garden! Thanks to Cornelia for sharing it with us once more.
