French Serves Invasion in the Dining Room with Cherubs and Putti

 I have been wanting to work it the garden but I am afraid to go to the secret garden by myself and John is always working so I decided to do a tablescape instead. I am not sure how I ended up with the Sevres pieces. I guess thinking about my grand kids, I thought I would use cherubs and putti and most of the Sevres items have them so there it goes.
 


I even changed the buffet a bit to add the Sevres urns. We won the 2 bigger ones in an estate auction and the smaller ones, we bought from an antique store.
We bought this huge compote in an antique store too. It opens up into a big oval bowl.
Love all the details.



Hmmm, don't know why this loaded turned this way. It isn't on the original pic. Anyway, I bought these plates on clearance from the Noritake site at a big discount. I couldn't pass them out, lol.
I like the subtle dots on the dainty plates.

Napkin rings
A shell shaped Serves we also bought from an antique shop.

The pair of turquoise cherub candle holders I think are from Joss and Main.
Another large piece, a Serves bowl with gold ormolu.




I should have turned the urns cause they have a different hand painted designs on the other side.

 We even have these 2 huge Sevres eggs, just sitting on the floor cause I don't have enough able space to put them, lol.
Thanks for stopping by and viewing! I accidentally posted this prematurely but now it is finally done with minimal description. We have other Serves pieces around the house but I did not want to add them for fear of cluttering the table.
 
Thanks to these wonderful hostesses.

Your Svres pieces are all stunning Chris! You did wonderful purchasing them. A friend of mine just told me as she was so worried lately; that she has decided not to ever get worried, as soon as she would go shopping for something ' fine, European, amazing and antique, lol! I know it's made you feel better.
Your entire tablescape and changes are gorgeous my friend. I just bought an amazing cobalt blue compote from the antique shop today too and it's Murano crystal from Italy.
Enjoy your weekend.

Morning Christine,

I've always drooled over that huge Sevres compote and all the other turquoise/gold pieces that match. You are so fortunate to have them to play with.

(For some reason, your link had not plugged in right, so I fixed it for you.)

Isn’t it fun finding blues to share? Thanks for playing today.

Happy Blue Monday!
