Beautiful, Vintage, Copeland Spode Tower in a Springtime Tablescape

Welcome to the 106th Tablescape Thursday!

How was your day? Are you looking forward to a nice long Labor Day weekend? Any cookouts planned? I hope whatever you do…it’s fun and relaxing. Enjoy these last treasured days of summer. I’m almost in the mood for fall…but not quite. With temps still in the 90’s in Georgia and the blessing of low humidity, I’m still tablescaping out on the porch.

This week I’m using a china I’ve never used on the porch before…well, at least not for Tablescape Thursday. I set the table with Copeland Spode, Tower and I really had no idea what I’d be using for a centerpiece.

On a recent trip to Publix Supermarket, I came across some lovely roses and thought I’d place a single rose at each place setting. Also, I spotted some sweet daisies and bought them with plans to use them in last weeks Lemonade Days Table Setting post. Once home, my plans completely changed. Does that ever happen to you?   I ended up using an urn I bought a long time ago in a local thrift store to create a little arrangement.  Hope you enjoy!

Summer Table Setting Tablescape with Roses and Daisies Centerpiece

 The dishware in this table setting, Copeland Spode, Tower, is vintage and dates back to the 1920’s.

I combined the roses and daisies with Creeping Jenny I had growing in urns out on the deck.

I love the color combination of the bright green Creeping Jenny with the pink roses and sweet daisies.

Dishware is Copeland Spode and the pattern is, Tower.  This vintage china has the old, oval Copeland Spode hallmark dating it back to the 1920’s.

Four place settings have vintage ruby stemware for the iced beverage. Since I only have four of those, I mixed in two pieces of Waterford, Araglin. The wine glasses are Waterford, Crimson Hock. Salt cellars are ruby flash, also.

I’m gradually collecting monogrammed sterling napkin rings. It’s kind of hard to find them with an H monogram. But isn’t that the fun part…the hunt.

Since I only have three so far, I used a fun napkin fold for the flatware at three of the settings. Would you be interested in knowing how this fold is made? If so, I’ll do a post showing how to create it.  Update: Napkin Fold can be found here: Pocket Napkin Fold

    Hope you have a wonderful labor day! We are having 90 degree weather here in upstate NY, but we have humidity too!!!

    Thank you again for hosting this great party!

  12. Hi Susan~ Love your Spode table and your shot of your goblet thru the creamer handle! Looking forward to seeing how to do the napkin fold…thanks for hosting πŸ™‚

  13. Your table setting is so stunning I am at a loss for words. The china is simply gorgeous along with your gorgeous stemware. I can't stop scrolling back to look again! The flowers in the urn are exquisite! I do love the way you folded the napkins and tucked the forks inside. It has been delight stopping here this evening!
    Have a wonderful evening!

    Susan, this setting is absolutely majestic!! I would never want to take it down!
    Sheila

  15. I love everything, Susan (as usual….sigh!!) but my very favorite is the chippy pedestal and urn with the flowers. I also love your ruby beverage stemware. But of course these do not mean I am not in love with everything else because I am….Christine

  16. marty (A Stroll Thru Life) says

    Susan, this is such a lovely tablescape. Your centerpiece is stunning. I love the huge tall urn and the floral arrangement is beautiful. Your china and the gorgeous ruby glassware are exquisite. Everything is so well done as usual. Hugs, Marty

  17. Table Escapes says

    Simply perfection! Love to see all that you do…Have a wonderful weekend…sharon

  18. Oh I love Spode SO much!!!! I have been lusting after it for years. Unfortunately, my husband, who is English, cannot stand the stuff. He says it reminds him of old ladies houses. I try to explain that it can be updated but he insists that it is all about old ladies who sit around and drink tea – haha. I am still working on him though…

  19. Cindy (Applestone Cottage) says

    I really don't know how you could get any prettier than that Susan!
    Those dishes are just gorgeous! I could stare at them for hours!
    And your beautiful centerpiece was the icing on the cake!
    Thanks for hostessing!
    Happy Labor Day too,
    Cindy

  20. Beautiful table Susan! I love the red and white Spode dishes together with the lighter color roses; such a nice combination. The creeping jenny looks great!

    I wish I could find chargers like yours. I looked a while back and need to get back on that task!

    We're bracing for hurricane Earl early Friday morning. Work is talking about opening shelters πŸ™

    Warmest regards,

  33. Honestly, Susan, that table setting is drop dead gorgeous. I think it's one of my all time favorites on your lovely blog. The red glasses….WOW WOW WOWSERS! I'd toast with those even if there was nothing in them! ha! Greatttttttt job! Susan

    Best regards,
    Gloria

  39. Susan,
    Beautiful! I love the china and the centerpiece … it is all just lovely!

  40. Susan, what a beautiful table! I love the creamy white and ruby together. So fresh and neat! Of course, daisies and roses go together! Roses go with anything.

    When can we expect your book of tablescapes to be published????

  41. Red Couch Recipes says

  43. Chic Creations says

    I love coming to vist The Tablescape. Your tables are absolutely gorgeous! Some day I hope to enter. Thank you for sharing so much. And thank you to all the great gals in Bloggerville for their beautiful tables.

  44. The table this week is just beautiful. I love the red goblets and the cutwork linens.

  45. Gorgeous table! Love the china pattern. Looks like the perfect table for Valentine's day or Christmas party. Bet that china and stemware looks gorgeous in your red dining room too!

  46. Susy @ The Feathered Nest says

    Your table setting was stunning. Thank you sharing your beautiful treasures. I have a few place settings of my mother's Spode. Perhaps I'll get brave and join the party some time.

  47. Susan, I've always loved this pattern. It sets such a beutiful table. Great idea to use the Creeping Jenny in the arrangement. Also love the idea of that tall garden urn. You never fail to wow! ~ Sarah

  48. Susan,
    Your tablescape looks lovely.
    The dishes are just beautiful and I love how your flowers look.

  49. All The Pretty Dishes says

    Susan,

    Your tablescape looks lovely. The dishes are just beautiful and I love how your flowers look.

  50. Susan, I just love the ruby stemware. My aunt had beautiful ruby glasses that someone else inherited. I have a real fondness for them as they were always at the head table for her Christmas Eve Dinner. I loved that you showed that you didn't have all six and how to work around that.

    Thanks for another great Tablescape Thursday. It is a highlight of my week!

  51. A Toile Tale says

    Susan,
    Thanks for hosting. This is my very favorite blog party! Your red and white looks so crisp and is so unexpected for end of summer. It looks so special on the porch instead of a stuffy dining room.
    Linda

  52. Fifi Flowers says

    GORGEOUS dishes!!!

  53. Ok Susan I have to ask. Did you actually have people come over for diner and did you eat at that table or was the table only set up for these gorgeous display purpose? I ask because there is so much China on the table and with that gorgeous centerpiece (and yes daisies and roses go together you proved that) there would be no room for food and people couldn't see it each other.
    I love doing a little tablescape and I am strictly amateur but when I see a truly beautiful one like yours I can't help wondering " do people actually eat there and sit at that table?"
    Thank you in advance for letting me know.
    Thank you for the party I think it was my first time ever linking up.

  54. Hi Susan,
    back from holidays, I enjoyed your table very much. This vibrant red really means summer to me. I am not redy with all my work yet so I have to make a break from tablescaping. But in a few weeks, hopefully earlier, I will join your party again.
    Greetings, Johanna

  55. Carol at Serendipity says

    Susan,

    Beautiful tablescape. Everything is perfect right down to the salt cellars.

    I would love to learn how to fold the napkins!

    Have a great weekend.

    Carol

  56. Araglin is my crystal pattern, love it. Yours looks amazing with the red crystal. Just a perfect table, I have started collecting silver and pewter napkin rings. I have a great start and can be very selective now. It is fun to hunt. Good-luck with yours.

  57. Susan, we should join forces. Our dishes would work great together!

  58. I love what you did with the urn. Stunning!

  59. Another gorgeous table! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creativity and beautiful dishes. I thoroughly enjoy Tablescape Thursday and had to participate today. I will be spending a few days viewing as many other posts as possible. Everyone has such beautiful posts.

  60. β™₯Georgieβ™₯ says

  62. On Crooked Creek says

    Susan,
    The roses and daisies are truly breathtaking! And, YES, I'd love to see the tutorial on the folded napkin. Good luck on "the hunt" for the monogram H napkin rings!

    Just beautiful as always. I have one spode cup. Planning on a tea for one tablescape someday! Had to comment on the plant my mother has one but doesn't know what it is. It sits on a table about 3 foot high. The plant touches the floor! Loved this thanks for sharing. Have Blessed Day,
    Sherry

  66. Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio says

    And for hosting! πŸ™‚

  69. oh oh ohhhhhh my heart skipped a beat.

    Hugs,
    Nancy

  73. Amy @MaisonDecor says

    I am not a red person but this table has a softness to it. I think the heavy use of white with crystal and the soft centerpiece is such a perfect balance to the strong dinnerware. I think this may be my favorite table you have ever done (that I have seen). It is classic yet feminine and very inviting. Nice job.

  81. Entertaining Women says

    Copeland Spode Tower Pink is always a wonderful choice, and the Waterfod Ruby Hock elevated the elegance level to the top of the scale. Your Neiman marcus chargers are always stunning.

    I would be interested in learning the napkin fold that you used in this tablescape. Thanks for sharing.

    All the Best,

    Requi

  84. Your table is just beautiful. Inspiring as always. I have been slowly collecting dishes and accessories to help me set pretty tables. I always find ideas when I come to visit your blog and others who have linked to Tablescape Thursday. I would love to learn to make that napkin fold.

    What an absolutely gorgeous table setting! Love the flowers too!

    Happy PS,
    Jacalyn

  90. Tower Spode are my favorite dishes–I just have a few pieces but have quite a history with these dishes. Also, you posted this just two days after our wedding anniversary, and your flowers are exactly the bouquet I carried as a young bride–pink roses and white daisies! Yes, together, and your centerpiece is as pretty as my bouquet was! Thanks for this special (to me) post!

  91. fiberdoodles says

    So very pretty! Happy Pink Saturday ;0)

  92. Susan, this is the prettiest table you have done…the china is just gorgeous against the charger plate. I love the red stemware. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  93. OH my heavens this tablescape is just the dreamiest thing I have ever seen…I would give anything for those dishes they are just darling. Love the rose and daisy combo.
    Hugs,
    Olivia

  94. LOVE this gorgeous tablescape ~ red is my favorite color ~ also, the centerpiece is perfect for this setting. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  95. laurie @ bargain hunting says

    It's gorgeous Susan. I LOVE that centerpiece, and all of the red accents are so stunning. laurie

  96. I sure would like to know what the name of the pattern of the charger plates. They are just beautiful. I have searched in google for charger plates and just cannot find anything like them so far.
    Thank you,
    Judi

  97. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says

    Judi, I bought those at either Neiman Marcus or Horchow about 4-5 years ago. I think it was Horchow. They are owned by the same company and carry the same stuff, so I always forget which one I ordered them from. They don't have a pattern name that I'm aware of…no markings on them. Sorry I don't have any other info. They were only on the site a short while and I've never seen them on there again. Hopefully one day they will have them or something similar available again.

  98. Oh my! This is one of the prettiest table settings I have ever seen! Beautiful….

  99. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says

    Thanks, Tracy!

  100. While jumping around reading your different posts today, I found this tablescape. I am in love with this one. It makes me want to run out to Ebay and buy some Spode Red Tower and Ruby Flash. That's what is great about Ebay, you can start a collection immediately. Your iced beverage glasses are fab. I collect brown and blue and white transferware but no red; yet. This red tablescape was my Valentines gift from you. Thanks. It made my day. Happy Valentine's Day to you.
    Marsha

  101. Susan BetweenNapsOnThePorch says

    Thanks, Marsha! Happy Valentine's Day to you! Yes, you can definitely find Spode Tower on eBay. It's usually on there in the Blue and White pattern, also. So fun to collect it a little along the way and watch your collection grow.

  102. Marilyn Clark says

    Since discovering your wonderful site , I am having trouble getting anything done- I just want to sit and gaze at all your beautiful designs. I collect monogramed napkin rings too. Love all of your tablescapes ! Such talent!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
