First Tablescape Using MacKenzie Childs Dishes

I have started collecting Mac Kenzie Childs dishes since last summer, when I saw a store while vacationing in Park City, Utah. But this is the first  time that I finally used them.  I like how they come in different patterns and colors and yet can be mixed together beautifully.
 
Isn't this a cute double decker ceramic or clay tea pot set? I found it on Ebay.
 
 
 
 
I opted to use a colorful quilt throw for a table topper.

 
 
For the main centerpiece, I used a Heather Goldminc clayworks candle house. I bought it from a store that is closing locally downtown at 40% off. I thought the checks in the front would blend with the MKC courtley check dishes and accessories.
 
 
 
 I only have 2 courtley check plate chargers so I mixed them up with my other floral patterned ones, which I have 6 of. I do not know the pattern name either but they come in different colors.

Dinner plates!
I cannot remember all the pattern names so I just labeled the ones that I know. If you are familiar with them, please tell me the pattern name. Thanks.
 
 
Salad plates!
 
I only have 2 ceramic MKC napkin rings so I mixed up some pink (more like coral) flower rings from Pier One.

The blue ball shaped place card holders are part of John's Christmas presents to me. He  also bought me a courtley check hanging lamp t but I do not know where to put it yet.

I bought this pair of wooden candle holders from Ebay. They are not MacKenzie Childs but painted to mimic the style.
I really like how the table came out. I hope you like it too. Thank you so much for your visit. I especially thank the hostesses.
