The King of the House, The Doc!

Although we did not eat at home (We were invited to eat out for lunch and then had to go to a dinner party at night), I set a Father's Day table. I could not show it last week because I wanted to join Kathleen's Beach Party.
 I thought I would use my medical dish ware in honor of John's hard work both in the clinic and hospital, to support my dish addiction, lol..


 I found this physician figure a long time ago at Ross, at a very cheap price, around $10 if I remember correctly. I have a Lladro doctor figure too but John do not like how the doctor itself looks, so I did not use it. It is bald and old. I could not believe he found it on my mom's armoire and pulled it out to sell at my booth. I had to retrieve it, lol.
Notice the gold medical insignia on the cup and saucer?
I found these set at St. Andrew's thrift store when I stopped by to drop off a donation.
 The glasses also have the medical Caduceus symbol and an RX prescription symbol.
I added some Limoges salad plates framed by silver spray since my figure is silver. 
 Then, I added a bronzy crown and placed a gold elephant tea candle holder in the center.




 I used my gold "Natchez" flatware, which I could not help buying because of the pattern name.
 Medical S & P shakers.


I hope you like my medical tablescape which I created especially for John. Thank you so much for stopping by. I really enjoy your company and especially enjoy reading your comments.

How cool to have the medical dishes. I didn't even know you could find such a thing. I'm sure he loved the care you took with this table. Well done!

Terra said...

Your table is very romantic with the candles and silver and gold sparkling and the illuminated pool in the background. I like how you explain the background and cost of your treasures, especially your thrift store purchases.

Christine, This is such a loving tribute to John! And what unique things you were able to use in your tablescape. You never fail to find the most interesting and beautiful accessories, dinnerware, and glassware. :-) Sue

Christine, what a lovely tribute to your husband for Father's Day! I am so impressed that you found dishes with medical symbols! You truly DO have dishes for any occasion. And the doctor figurine looks very wise. Great job!

The table setting is perfect and I love the medical settings you have. Definitely fitting for the King of the House!

So I'm guessing that John really likes the Doogie Houser doctor figurine. Pretty funny...he tried to sell the Iladro. Your table honors him in such a beautiful way. I've never seen china with the caduceus...so glad that you found it. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Oh, Christine....I love this! Ramon would be SO jealous that I didn't think of it! I'll have to share it with him, though, because I think he'll enjoy it very much. What a great find on all the dishes and glassware and accessories with the medical symbols!!!! It's a good thing you were there dropping stuff off at the thrift store!

Hi, Christine,
Thanks for stopping by to see me today. Are you enjoying your pool in this hot weather? I sure would be.
I'm sure John really appreciated the beautiful "doctor" table you set for him for Father's Day.
