Dining in the Conservatory with Royal Copenhagen, Blue Flower

Welcome to the 87th Tablescape Thursday!

Tablescape Thursday:
I’m soooo happy to be sharing another gorgeous tablescape today with you that’s coming all the way from Switzerland! Dear Cornelia graciously agreed to invite us into another one of the wonderful rooms in her beautiful home. Today we will be dining in the conservatory.  I love saying that word…conservatory. I’ve always LOVED conservatories but I’ve become slightly obsessed with them since seeing Bunny William’s conservatory in her book, An Affair with a House.

Cornelia, thank you so much for bringing us into your home this week to see this lovely tablescape in your conservatory. Notice the stunning candlelier…is it not amazing? I have a little close-up of it to share a little further down.

Cornelia told me the table and the chairs are,Empire. I love their warmth and patina…just beautiful!

The rug is a very old Kasak from the Caucassus.

I adore a blue and white tablescape! Cornelia told me the china is from Royal Copenhagen, Blue Flower, curved and a few pieces of Blue Flower, plain.

The Cutlery is silver, made by Jezler (Switzerland), the pattern is called Centenaire.

The napkins are antique and the tablecloth is Swiss from Leinenhaus Berne. There is just something so special about monogrammed linens…absolutely love ’em!

Soooo pretty!

The vase is by Augarten/Vienna…it’s so perfect with the china. πŸ™‚

The flowers are Lenten Roses from Cornelia’s garden. Love their gorgeous color! This so has me longing for a spring garden tour.

What a beautiful, silver serving piece! Johanna believes these are pastry tongs…gorgeous!

Here’s a close-up…

This looks like a cranberry server…love the patina…just beautiful!

The candlesticks are by Royal Copenhagen.

The teapot is silver and also made by Jezler.

The sugar bowl is by Jezler; the pattern is called, Rose.

Cornelia told me, “The chandelier is Dutch and antique. Please note that there is no electricity, only candles.” I’ve never seen an antique chandelier like this that was designed for candles. I’ve only seen reproductions…so it’s a delight to see the real thing!

Cornelia, thank-you so much for inviting us into your lovely home! It is such a treat! I am forever amazed and grateful for the opportunities blogging provides. Sitting right here in the comfort of our homes, we can travel all the way to Switzerland and enjoy a beautiful tablescape in a wonderful conservatory, while surrounded by rare treasures and antiques. We are so fortunate and truly blessed!

I’m so looking forward to viewing your beautiful tablescapes this evening!

  1. The china is so beautiful. Love that blue and white. Looks great on the pale blue tablecloth too. The sugar bowl is just fabulous – what a treasure! The hellebores look great. I never thought of them as a cut flower, but they look very, very pretty in her arrangement. Thanks for sharing!
    Blessings, Beth

  2. It's a beautiful table — love the blue and white but you know how I love blue and white — the table is amazing as are the Lenten roses (which recently have come to Linderhof's garden!)

    And the chandelier . . . perfection!

  3. marty (A Stroll Thru Life) says

    Susan this is such a lovely room and a beautiful tablescape. I agree, I have not seen a real candelier, on the reproduction ones. What a fabulous place and everything is presented so beautifully. Hugs Marty

  4. Another gorgeous table! The blue and white china is swoon-worthy, and the silver flatware is so pretty and different from the patterns we usually see. The candelier is spectacular — perfect for the conservatory setting. Thank you for sharing Cornelia's beautiful table!

  5. I love the new picture link! It makes a great site even better!

  6. Susan, I apparently did something wrong when I linked – I'm #1 and clicking on the pic works but my name/blog name aren't there. I think I'll just let it be, rather than being on the list twice. Hopefully people will be entranced enough with the photo to click on it and view my post. Thanks for hosting!

  7. Yvonne @ StoneGable says

    Susan, Thank you for hosting TT and a trip to Switzerland this evening. Cornelia's conservatory is so inviting! I am such a fan of old linens, especially monogrammed ones. They are so beautiful, as is all the silver.

    But the flowers, Lentin Roses, are breathtaking- the don't even look real. I wonder if they can be grown here?

    And I certainly don't want to forget the tableware. Arn't those egg cups fabulous? so unique and fresh. Blue and white always looks so crisp and clean to me.

    Thanks you to Cornelia and to you!

  8. A beautiful table. Conservatory is now on the top of my "honey do" list. BTW love the new linky thing – even more browsing fun.

  9. Hi Susan,
    thank you for hosting again TT. I love to participate to this Blogparty. And I love to have a look on tables like this today. Cornelia has a beautiful home and she knows how to decorate stunning tables. It's so interesting to see such a lot of good pieces Jezler silver. The unique tongs are pastry tongs and they are very delicate made. That's the kind of antiqued silver and I wouldn't be surprised if this pastry tongs was made in Hanau. The Royal Copenhagen with its dark blue flowers has a strong decorative aura. Greta table, I love it.
    Greetings to you and Cornelia, Johanna

  10. Cindy (Applestone Cottage) says

    Hi Susan,
    That was a really, fun tour! I love conservatories and am certain I need one too! Her blue and white china, blue tablecloth and silver is just stunning! I adore that table~

  11. Forget moving to IL, I want to move to Switzerland! The table is lovely. I covet those silver pieces! Susan, I share your love of conservatories. One of the houses we're looking at in IL has one…and it's no accident that House Affairs is akin to An Affair with a House. I love Bunny Williams (although my own personal style is a little more simple). Thanks for hosting!

  12. scribbler-unfocused says

    Please say thank you to Cornelia again for sharing her lovely home and beautiful tablescape with us! You are so nice to do this week after week!


  13. Dining Delight says

    Please pass along my appreciation to your friend in Switzerland for gracing us with another fabulous tablescape. Love the blue and white china and the silver teapot. Nice to "experience" a conservatory too!

    Susan, as always thanks for hosting TT. I didn't think it was possible, but I'm enjoying it even more now with the "picture links"!


  14. Mid-Atlantic Martha says

    How beautiful this all is — and the lenten roses for her garden are just the icing on this beautiful tablescape cake! Love her candlelight chandelier

  15. Yellow Rose Arbor says

    Absolutely beautiful! It's so nice to see other homes and tablescapes in another country! Love the blue and white. The silver servers are great! Lovely chandy with candles!

    Absolutely exquisite! Thank you so much for sharing the lovely conservatory and gorgeous tablesetting. Beautiful pieces!

  18. My Ugly Garden says

    Swoon! Beautiful, beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing!

  19. Susan, how beautiful. And yes, the wonder of blogs! I felt as if I was right there in Cornelia's gorgeous home. Thank you so much, to both of you, for sharing such loveliness with us.

  20. What a beautiful room for such a gorgeous blue and white tablesetting. The blue and white china is so unique, I haven't seen this pattern before and what a treat to see a new blue and white table! Everything is elegant and that centerpiece is divine! Thanks for sharing Cornelia's table!

  21. laurie @ bargain hunting says

    What a beautiful room and table for dining. That china is so pretty, and I'm in love with her candlesticks. I really didn't think those flowers were real until you said they were from her garden. They are so pretty. And what a great candlier! Thank you so much Susan and Cornelia for sharing this lovely tablescape. laurie

  22. Annesphamily says

    I love the beautiful dishes! Gorgeous! Thank you for sharing! Anne

  23. Lady Katherine says

    Oh, Susan this is my cup of tea! I just love this room, the windows, doors and ceiling remind me of my home. I adore this Tea! The china is so lovely! Oh, the silver teapot, sugar dish, pastry server, the cranberry server! This is one lovely trip! The chandy is awesome! Just love it all! Thank for sharing her home with us! I love traveling with you!

  24. Beautiful room, love all the windows and the furniture is gorgeous so as the dinnerware and silverware. I love the candlesticks!….Christine

  25. A lovely room, and a lovely table. The china is so pretty, and the linens so nice and crisp!

  26. Oh, This table is lovely. My favorite thing is that silver sugar bowl! Gorgeous! Susan I will apologize for not putting the TT button in my post. I have been learning with loading up the videos and experiencing technical difficulties in some form or another. This week the button was sacrificed, but I always link back to BNOTP. I am loving the picture linky-it rocks!

  27. Southern Fried Gal says

    Wow! I was gasping at every photo. What a gorgeous room and table! Thank you so much for taking us to Switzerland and thank you, Cornelia, for sharing! Love the flowers, too! Have a blessed weekend!

  28. Tamara Jansen says

    so many tablescapes……so little time!

  29. I have to say we are very fortunate to be able to 'cross the pond' and look at their tablescapes, so thanks for hosting! ;O) The table is pretty, but the dishes are GORGEOUS! Would love a closer look at the plates on the wall, too!

  30. Tales From My Empty Nest says

    Susan, I love Cornelia's tablescape. The blue china is gorgeous!! And her silver pieces are so pretty too. I love the pastry servers. Love & blessings from NC!

  34. Coty Farquhar says

    Hi Susan,
    What a great idea this Mr Linky with pictures is.

    What a wonderful room and setting in Cornelia's home and the shape of the tea cups are gorgeous, don't you think?

    Have a great week Susan,
    xxxxxxxxxx Coty

  35. Susan, thank you and Cornelia for such a lovely table! It is such a treat to come here and then quickly visit Switzerland. I adore Cornelia's blue and white china and especially loved the shape of the coffee cup. It's my favorite shape as it seems to hold a little more coffee πŸ™‚ Cornelia has a lovely home!

    Please tell Yvonne from Stone Gable that yes, Lenten Roses can indeed be grown here. They are "Helleborus" They are an easy shade loving pernennial and leaves are evergreen in warm climates. Here in my part of Virginia they tend to look ratty during the winter but by February they are greening up and mine are blooming by March.

  36. Creations By Cindy says

    I LOVE all your blue and white! I need that in May for a lemonade Party I am hosting for some young moms at home!!!!! Can you bring it to me and stay for the party? Ha! Beautiful! Be blessed. Cindy

  37. Those flowers are just gorgeous! As always, enjoyed all the pictures. They inspire me to get up and start doing something around my home!

  38. Such a beautiful room! I love the blue china. Thank you!

  39. LADY BEVERLY says

    I'm so glad that I found this blog – it is truly an inspiration. Hopefully my house will look this gorgeous someday. Thank you for all the sharing that you do.

    This one today is beautiful – and like you, it is amazing that we are here and looking at Switzerland!

  40. ~ ~ Ahrisha ~ ~ says

    Susan and Cornelia what a pair. The table is beautiful and I adore the china. I love the way you have set the table with the spoons resting on the saucers of the coffee cup and soup cup. I will be using this idea. Thanks.
    ~ ~Ahrisha~ ~

  41. Beansieleigh says

    Love these dishes!!.. I tell you, my daughter just rolls her eyes, at my love for collecting dishes! She doesn't have the appreciation for it quite YET… But they do make the holidays so much prettier, and everyday memories 'round the table all the sweeter, I think! I have just GOT to jump in and play along here, one of these days! ~tina

  42. The Blackwood Cottage says

    Crisp & Clean!

  43. Susan, yet another beautiful table set with wonderful treasures. Thank you to Cornelia for sharing her conservatory with all of us. Loved seeing the Jezler silver and the Royal Copenhagen, Blue Flower china. It's fun to see European patterns that are new to me. I want to plant some hellebores in my garden. Love the distinctive color and look of these. Beautiful photos, Cornelia!

  44. Lovely- and if their pastries are as good as their chocolate, I'm off to Switzerland!!

  45. Beautiful blue and white table, so crisp looking. That chandelier is gorgeous! I enjoyed seeing all of Cornelia's lovely silver. Thanks, Susan, for showcasing this wonderful Swiss conservatory!

  46. Wanda Lee Of The Plumed Pen says

    Dearest Susan,

    What a yet another, lovely visit to Cornelia in Switzerland! Every little exquisite detail fairly gleams and sparkles on her pristine white linens! The blue and white dishes, the silver, the crystal, the linens, the chande and the flowers are just so fresh and pretty, and her fabulous conservatory is beyond lovely!!

    Thanks for once again lifting the spirits of all of your readers by sharing this delightful, 'arm chair travel' experience to Cornelia's home in Switzerland!Thanks to dear cornealia as well for her generousity!

    ~(Also Susan, I 'copied' and then 'pasted' my blog post's, URL correctly this time, so I'm a little puzzled as to why there is a 'red x' by my name again)?..,(Thanks for your patience dear Susan; I will get it right, hopefully sooner than later)!

    Cheers from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

  47. Beautiful! I too love that we can travel to Switzerland and enjoy such beauty. I love the flowers as well!

  48. Love it !!!

  49. The Shiny Pebble says

    Gorgeous tablescape. And I love those windows, by the way. Also, I have linked to my dining room makeover challenge, where each week a desinger will redo my dining room. whereas there is no china displayed, the tablescape will change with each desing. I hope that is ok. If not, feel free to delete the link, ok? Thank you. Catherine

  50. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful table and home! The conservatory is lovely, the chandy, the china, love it all!!!!I have been VERY busy preparing for guests, working both inside and out! But at least I wioll have a new table to post next week:):) Happy Earth Day, Susan! XO, Pinky

  51. Thanks for sharing Cornelia's beautiful table with us. You can't go wrong with blue and white. It's such a classic choice.

    And I'm loving the picture linky thingy! It's nice to get a little preview like that.

  52. ***Holly*** says

    This is wonderfully beautiful classic style. I love it! I'm also your newest follower. πŸ˜‰

  53. coloradogal says

    Lovely table….what a serene setting!

  54. Hi Susan,
    I love everything about this post. The china is beautiful. I even love the cranberry spoon, which I did not know there was such a spoon or scoop. I think my favorite thing is the candle chandelier. I have always wanted one of these. Love these guest posts. It is really interesting to see tablescapes from different countries.
    Thanks again for hosting such a great party.


  55. Susan, I love her pasty tongs, cranberry server and sugar bowl. Also, I love the windows!
    And I too have a thing for conservatories, big time. I understand, I understand.:}

  56. Omigosh, I'm drooling over that china! Love the chandelier, too. And I am a BIG fan of Bunny Williams — conservatory, barn, garden and all! πŸ™‚

    Have a wonderful weekend, Susan!

  57. "Blossom" says

    Stunning and the silver is to die for. The centerpiece is georgous.

  58. Abi's Blog says

    Hi Susan, I love your blog and enjoy the many tablescapes so much! I had to write and tell you what my four year old grandson said today. I was looking at the tablescapes and he saw the tablescape button on my blog – He said, wait Abi, go back to the Mickey Mouse! I had no idea what he was talking about, but look at your button through the eyes of a four year old. – The cup and saucer and the bread plate make the ears and the round center plates make the head!! πŸ™‚ I thought you might enjoy that.
    Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for hosting this party!

  59. Lara Harris says

    SO pretty & full of spring! πŸ™‚

  60. Hi Susan…I love how you can now see a little picture of all the tablescapes…what a great idea..You are too clever…we are getting together again at the end of June at the tea hose in Woodstock either the 28th. or 29th….I'll send you all the info when we finalize it…hope you'll be able to join us this time….Sue.

  61. Susan, I wanted to thank you for being so innovative and adding the pictures to Mr. Linky. It is pleasant to view a scene from the blog entries. A picture is worth a thousand words sums it up for me.

    Thanks also for sharing Cornelia's blog from Switzerland. It was very enjoyable. I continue to be impressed with blogland.

  62. There’s something so uncontrived and intrinsically beautiful about Cornelia’s tables. The pieces and setting speak for themselves. I love her tables.

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