McKenzie and April and a Bit of Whimsy

 
I have no vehicle because John is using it. His van is still in the shop, still deciding if they will cover engine, which is clearly still under warranty. I feel like they are trying to find a loophole of why they should not cover it. John is almost ready to call his daughter and son in law who are both lawyers.
 
Anyway, I need to amuse myself and what is my most favorite thing to do? Tablescape!!
 
I decided to use something perky. And is there anything more perky that these Mac Kenzie Childs dishes?
 
I started with April Cornell linens.
 
Yikes! It's freezing outside. See those big chunks of icicles coming down from the pool slide?
But it's nice and cozy in here.
 
I love these fluted MC plates.


 



I also love this MC double teapot. I found it on Ebay.

 
 


I cannot remember where I bought the column handled flatware. Maybe from Horchow.
 The MC place card holders were part of my Christmas presents from DH last Christmas of 2012. The MC egg S & P shakers and the taper candle holders are from Ebay. The pink flower tea light candle holder is from an estate sale. The potted silk flowers were from Dillards in Florida from several years ago, before we even moved to MS.

 

I don't remember the pattern name of the champagne flutes but the wine glasses are La Rochere's "Rose Lyonnais".
I enjoy looking at all the different patterns and varying colors.
I had to use 2 different kinds of napkins because I could not find the other 2 blue ones. I have an idea where they are but I was just lazy to look, lol. Anyway the purple one work also, IMHO. They are both April Cornell's. The napkin rings are from MC's flower market line.
 
I hope this tablescape somewhat amused you also and
I hope you are enjoying this new year so far. Thank you all for visiting and special thanks to the hostesses.
