Easter Breakfast Table Setting with Royal Copenhagen, Musselmalet

Welcome to the 152nd Tablescape Thursday!

Earlier in the spring, Cornelia had a ladies breakfast in her beautiful home in Switzerland.  

Easter Breakfast Table Setting

It was near Easter and she created a gorgeous table setting for the event.

Cornelia said, “I had an Invitation this morning.   I invited 5 ladies for breakfast and had a Royal Copenhagen, Musselmalet tablescape. “

“The Musselmalet is also known as Blue fluted.  The china I used is mainly Blue Fluted, Half Lace.  A few pieces are Blue Fluted, Full Lace and some are Blue Fluted, Plain.”

The cutlery is silver by Jezler, the pattern is called Comtesse, Countess.

Cornelia said, “The water glasses date back to the sixities, they are Swedish (Kosta Boda) and are hand blown and hand cut crystal.”

The Champagne glasses are also vintage.  Cornelia believes they were made in the sixties in Germany. They are hand blown and hand cut crystal.

Cornelia said, “The wrapped egg contains Swiss Chocolate. The small plate is also Blue Fluted Half Lace by Royal Copenhagen. The tablecloth is German. It is  a traditional blue print table cloth.”

Cornelia created a beautiful arrangement of tulips in a hand cut crystal Villeroy and Boch vase from the the 50’s.

Another gorgeous vase filled with beautiful tulips.  Doesn’t this make us wish it was springtime all over again!

The vase is Meissen and the tureen behind the vase is by Nymphenburg/Germany.

Cornelia said, “I had some cheese, different  croissants, brioches and special filled doughnuts together with jam and oranges on a side table. The pastry was made by the local baker shop.”

I LOVE this photo, so I saved it for last.  It feels like it should be a painting.  Don’t you just love the hint of the chest on the left with the tea set and lit candles, the gorgeous blue chair, the ornaments hanging in the window, the amazing wainscoting.  So beautiful!

Cornelia, thanks so much for sharing your lovely home and beautiful table setting with us.  I know the ladies who joined you for breakfast had a wonderful time!

    Cornelia sets the most lovely tables. The blue and white china is absolutely gorgeous and shown to perfection in this setting. The traditional blue print tablecloth is so pretty and just sets off the china so nicely.

    Cheese, croissants and local pastries…oh, my! Sounds delicious.

    Whenever you have something of your friend Cornelia, I just can't wait to open your post and see! I love, love Royal Copenghagen, and this tablescape is so beautiful and elegant…for a breakfast! How I wish I could be there! I just have a tea pot from RC. I would imagin you posted how you came about to be friends with Cornelia, but I was probably not blogging then…maybe if you show me the link, I'll go there. Thank you again, lovely lady, for sharing it with us. Love, FABBY

    The blue and whites are just classics. The table settings are like a dream. You are so right about the last picture. It is like painting or it should be a painting. I be the ladies had a wonderful time together.


  21. Sewconsult says

  22. Hello, my dear friend. As much as I love seeing your charming, colorful, truly original tables, I'm ALMOST as excited when I see that you're transporting us to Cornelia's elegant, spacious dining room! Her settings exude old world charm and teach us so much about the art of gracious living. Thank you, Susan and Cornelia. When you two collaborate on a post, the result is pure magic!

    My warmest regards to you both,

  23. Susan (My Place to Yours) says

    Susan, you and Cornelia have brought us another fantastic table! The classic blue and white color scheme is always a favorite, but I especially love those gorgeous candle holders! Cornelia, I also like your embellished chandelier. Such a perfect "little touch" at Easter!

  24. Just simply so elegant….I love both Cornelia's and your tablescapes….it's always a highlight of my Thursday mornings whether I'm posting or not.
    Thank You.

    This can't be a dining room! This is obviously a beautifully converted gymnasium! Look at the size of this room!!! Wow!!!!!! This is the 2nd huge dining room I've seen online this week, and I am starting to suffer true Dining Room Envy! 🙂 Gorgeous!!!

  31. Cornelia owns such beautiful china, love the blue and white. How fortunate to be invited there for breakfast.
    I have the same pattern in one or two wine glasses I have had from the 60's from England, also vases.
    Thank you Susan and Cornelia for inviting us to view her lovely setting.
