Welcome to the 41st Tablescape Thursday!
The breezes on the porch are filled with the sweet “lemonade” scent of magnolias…I love this time of year.
Our table is filled with crystal, sterling, floral china, touches of lace and magnolias…all lit with soft, romantic candlelight.
This vintage china was made right here in America by the Syracuse China Company. The pattern is “Orchard.”
The light was fading quickly this evening as I took these pics. I love the soup bowls with their little handles…I have 8 place settings of this china, but only six of the bowls.
Dinner plate…the plates are encircled in apple blossoms.
I love the soft, muted colors in this pattern. Chargers were purchased from Horchow, online, two years ago.
Lace napkins to compliment our lace tablecloth…floral napkin rings are from Macy’s a few years back.
Crystal stemware is by Riedel…found the little crystal “zipper design” salt cellars years ago on eBay. The tiny salt spoons are also King Richard.
A birds-eye view…
A blossom from my Southern Magnolia (Magnolia Grandiflora)
Lots of pretty layers…
Found on many a Southern table.
Such a lovely evening for dining out….
So glad you stopped by…be sure to smell this big, beautiful magnolia blossom before you leave.
Looking forward to the table settings for this Tablescape Thursday!
