Eternal Beau and Cherubs

I wanted to use my octagonal Johnson Brothers "Eternal Beau" dishes before I put them away and store them in the garage. So I created a tablescape using them.

I brought a gold box with a cherub on the lid from the family room. I use it to store dvd's from Netflix. I created my whole centerpiece around it.

I love this pierced and embroidered table cloth. I bought it from Grand Cayman. I have a favorite linen store there and I never fail to buy something everytime I visit.

I wonder if they call this pattern "Eternal Beau" because of the bows on the plates.

Nippon salt cellars and sterling mini spoons.

Golf cherub napkin rings.

Lady Katherine gave me these 2 cherub tea light candle holders during our Magnolia Southern Belle get together here. Thanks, Katherine! I love them. They came with a matching ceramic basket.

I cut some flowers from the garden and tucked them in a crystal vase.

I bought the napkins while antiquing with Vanna in Seattle.

My flatware handles are pierced too, and so are the vintage napkins.

I am linking with the following:

I knew I recognized those napkins! *winks* How could I not love a tablescape centered around cherubs?.....I couldn't! Lol! Love it Christine! And I think the "beau" is a double entendre both for the bows at the top and for beau which means beautiful in french. And they certainly are. *winks* Vanna

That is an adorable table setting! Love the dishes and beautiful tablecloth.
The pic that shows your pretty pool out the window is very pretty!

Debbie said...

I just love all the cherubs. That detail just *makes* the table to me. It's all beautiful though. I think that pattern is beautiful, and I really love that flatware.

My favorite thing of all on the table? It was those salt cellars.

This is the first time that I've seen the Johnson Brothers pattern. It's lovely, and it looks like the tablecloth was designed to go with it. Angelic tablescape! Thank you for sharing your lovely design. Cherry Kay


How gorgeous this china! Love the pattern and shape. The tablecloth is beautiful and perfect with the china. The cherubs are great, even in the napkin rings and all the details, like the little spoonand salt cellers, etc... make for a beautiful tablescape, as usual Christine. Hugs, FABBY

Christine, this is so pretty. I love the shape of the plates. I am a cherub lover too! Your box is just gorgeous. That pierced flatware is so unique. What a pretty table and I love the aqua glass with the aqua water of the pool behind the table. Very fun.

The Charm of Home said...

Hi Christine,
This is a pretty pattern of Johnson Brothers. I love how you paired it with cherubs. The cherubs are beautiful in the candlelight!

Amy said...

You always have some elegant tablescape to share! Gotta love the centerpiece! :) These are so beautiful, why store them in the garage? They should be used more often instead! Or is it because you have some new plates coming? Can't wait to see them all.

What a terrific job you've done this week, both with the table and photoing. Every detail is just right. Curiosity makes me ask why your beautiful dishes are going to the garage.

The Decorative Dreamer said...

The adorable cherubs make your setting look so whimsical to me. I love the color of the teal goblets! Your tablecloth has such pretty embroidery in addition to the cut work. However, the pierced flatware is my favorite. I really like those! What a delightful setting!

Shelia said...

HI Christine! Here you go being amazing again. Your cherub table is gorgeous! Love the table linens too. Those dishes are so pretty and you have so many little accessories that make your tables so special.
Hope to see you Tuesday at the party.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sue said...

I'm in love with that tablecloth! It is gorgeous! I think plates that aren't perfectly round are always more interesting and these certainly set a pretty table. That is a very fancy way to store your Netflix!!

Barb said...

Christine, your table is delightful, as always. Such an eye you have for detail. The dishes are just delicate looking. It is all totally beautiful!!

Hi, Christine!!! Man...I've been SO slow this week getting around to all the blogs. I've been taking my time and reading every single one through and takes awhile!!! :-) I LOVE this dish pattern and shape! It's not every day that we see octagonal dishes, and these are really fantastic. I like the gentle pattern on it and the beading around the edges. I like your flatware, too. I don't often see pierced flatware, so it makes it extra special. Your table is absolutely angelic! I hope you are surviving the heat without much trouble. Have a good weekend!

Christine, this is such a beautiful tablesetting. That tablecloth is absolutely gorgeous as is the china. What a lovely shape. So glad we got to see this table setting before the china went out to the garage! said...

Your blog has not been updating on my sidebar, so I am going back and checking what I missed. Love that cut work tablecloth-and the dishes are so different, I have never seen that pattern.
