This is one of my favorite china set but I do not know why I have not used them until now. I have had them for at least a year.
Since I am using one of my favorite china, I thought I would use one of my favorite Lladro figure too, as a centerpiece. I think the color blends, especially her skirt.
Isn't she beautiful? I got her from Grand Cayman.
I bought the French tablecloth from the flea market of St. Maarten on the French side.
I love the gracious and dainty pattern and colors and I like that the color of the edging is silver since most of my china has gold rims. I found this set on Ebay and it is a big set, service for 12 with lots of extra serving pieces.
Heavy silver plated figural napkin holders flanked with silver plated flatware. I think the flatware set is vintage William Rogers & Sons but I cannot remember the pattern name.
The purple glasses are La Rochere's Lyonnaise. The big ones are Italian made.
Lavender bundle S & P shakers.
Pretty and swirly S & P shakers.
Love the shape of this serving bowl.
The set did not come with a coffee or teapot but it had sugar and cream servers, so I just dug out another pot that has some purple in it from my teapot collection.
The set also came with a tureen but it had no lid so I just used it as a vase.
I almost posted a St. Patrick's table, which I put together last night. Good thing, I double checked the date of Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day table challenge. Be sure you don't miss it on the 13th.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this tablescape. I really do appreciate your visits very much. I also appreciate all the hostesses.
