Polish Pottery for our Polish Neighbor

A few days ago, I invited my daughter and her family and neighbors for dinner. I found out that our German neighbor's hubby is actually from Poland so I decided to use Polish pottery. Luckily I had moved enough  pieces here from MS to set a table. Yep! I still have a lot left there:-)
 The table cloth is from the Waterford linen collection.
 The flowers are still healthy and I will use them until they completely wither. I just moved them to a Polish pottery pitcher/vase.

 I am beginning to miss Cajun food so I served gumbo and jambalaya.
I alternated blue enamel plate chargers with blue round placemats.

I served gumbo in this soup tureen.

I mixed various patterns of PP plates and bowls.

The green stemmed glasses were from the Dollar store. I bought them for my Thanksgiving table last year. I am still unable to locate my blue set of stemware. I must have left them in Natchez.

The napkin rings are also Polish pottery.

And so are the 2 sets of salt and pepper shakers below.

Funny thing happened. If you have held Polish pottery dishes, you must know how heavy they are. I went out to the kitchen to get the banana bread that I baked and I heard a commotion. The dining table collapsed, well not completely, so the guests were able to take the dishes from the table and nothing fell nor broke. The table must not have been screwed or glued properly cause I cannot believe that the weight of the dishes would cause it. Good thing most of them were done except for the dessert. Anyway, my son in law with the help of the other guys fixed it and all is well now. I just thought it was funny cause I have never had a table collapse on me before.
Thank you so much for the visits and thanks to all the hostesses.

Hi Christine! Oh, my goodness - your table looks gorgeous. I do remember seeing your Polish pottery and you just have so many pieces. Love it so much. I know you're loving your new home and new life by those babies.
Be a sweetie,

You always set such a pretty table. Sorry about the table collapsing, but you'll have something to talk about in the years to come of how this happened. Your Polish dishes look so very nice. Blue is one of my favorite colors for dishes. SO refreshing.

A very pretty table and the food sounds so good.
Glad your pretty dishes were not broken when the table collapsed.
Hope you enjoyed the weekend.


I love every beautiful piece of your Polish pottery Christine. The pitcher with the flowers is so very pretty as are the sweet bowls.
Lovely tablescape.
Have a great week.

You are such a thoughtful host Christine, everything is just absolutely well-thought of. The table linen, though patterned too, looks great with the POlish pottery!

Love how the tablecloth and the Polish Pottery look so good together. Great mix of dishes. I hope you find your blue stemware. I can imagine it's frustrating living out of two homes yet!

Your table looks beautiful! I have a table almost tip over when my young niece climbed on one end. The table was a vintage mahogany table that I quickly sold to an antique shop.

Darlene Gardner said...

I love anything blue and white and Polish pottery is famous for that. Loved your table and glad nothing was broken!

Hi, Christine!
The table look great! I love it!

Christine, Your Polish Pottery collection is beautiful! The tablecloth that you chose is perfect to complement the mix of colors in the plates. Your green stem wine glasses pick up the shades of green in the leaves on the tablecloth very nicely. Your new home is looking beautiful. I bet you are so happy to be near your grandchildren in your new home. Have a wonderful weekend..... Candy
