Welcome to the 442nd Tablescape Thursday!
It was such a beautiful, warm day out on the porch, I couldn’t resist putting this week’s table there.
I haven’t decorated the hutch for spring yet, but when I do I’ll most likely use my Ma Maison dishware by Dario Farrucci. It’s always my favorite for spring and summer.
I decided to use some of the larger pieces in my centerpiece this week.
The piece on the left is a cookie jar and the one on the far right is a pitcher. I’ve used the pitcher several times for serving iced tea when having friends over for dinner on the porch. The two smaller pieces in the center are a creamer and sugar. Those work great when serving coffee with dessert after a meal.
Here’s how they all look on the back side. I love how the decoration continues all the way around.
This is definitely my favorite “casual” china and definitely my most favorite for porch dining.
The inside of the bowl is covered in white, fluffy clouds. 🙂
The pattern name is Ma Maison. It was designed by Dario Farrucci and produced by Tabletops Unlimited. I found it in HomeGoods many, many years ago. I had to drive around to 3-4 HomeGoods that day to collect enough for 6 place settings. I bought extra salad plates to use for dessert and later filled in with a few additional salad plates from eBay. The chargers were found online at Horchow back in 2008.
I love this pattern so, so much. Every time I pull it out to use, I fall in love with it all over again. It has all my favorite things in life: cats, flowers, gardens, picket fences…
…garden hats, garden clogs, watering cans and butterflies. And that’s just the bowls!
Butterflies have landed on our napkins. They must know spring is almost here!
The salad and dinner plates are so whimsical with their scalloped edges.
This is the adorable pattern on the salad plate. I love this sweet house and the arching trees overhead that seem to be protecting it, keeping it safe from all harm. So many cute details like the darling ball-shaped topiaries on either side.
The dinner plate…
The dinner plate is just as delightful with more beautiful potted flowers.
An overhead view…
Happy Thursday, dear Friends! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
Looking forward to all the table settings posted for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!
