It is not "Gone with the Wind" Yet!

I was watching TV and all of a sudden, I thought about creating a Southern tablescape using my Limoges Trillium set. I always thought the flower on it is similar to a magnolia, so for now, please humor me cause I am pretending they are, lol. I looked all over the garage for these and luckily after searching for half a day, I found them, Yay! Yes, I am still unpacking from our move.


My Scarrlett O'Hara figurines.
Gone with the Wind is one of my very favorite movies. I could watch it over and over again. Remember those outfits?
Porcelain Meissen figurines


Silver plated flatware in "Baroque" pattern that I did not get to polish.


I have 2 different patterns of dinner plates in this pattern, the one rimmed in gold and the other in green and gold. I have had this set for years but never used them till now. Even John commented to that effect.



I love magnolias. They are so fragrant and their large size makes a statement.




I used a teapot for the color and I cannot remember if I have a matching sugar and creamer set, probably still in the garage bins. But this Southern Living at Home creamer and sugar server set will do for now.
The teacups and saucers are part of the Limoges "Trillium" set

The teapot is made by 222 Fifth in Adelaide pattern.
Thank you so much for stopping by and thanks so much to all the hostesses!

Christine I so love that china, it's so elegant and yet low profile.
Pretty table you created specially with those pretty ladies from Gone with the Wins... and yes, I've watch it so many times I can't count anymore.

What a pretty tablescape. I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never watched "Gone with the Wind". Clearly, I need to remedy that!

Christine, what a beautiful Tablescape. I love the Gone With the Wind Scarlett's and the Meissen! His has such a pretty Southern feel!

Oh, Christine!

How very charming and lovely! The colours and all the arrangements (and of course, the "Magnolia" theme)---simply wonderful.

I've missed dropping in on a lot of my "Beautifuls" and am so glad to see you so well and enjoying all the elegance and beauty of a tea party.
