Entertaining is not about perfection, it is about connection.
Who can resist stopping at estate sales when there just might be some special treasure hiding inside? At this particular one, look what I found, 11 red and white transferware plates.
I doubt they are very old, but they are from England’s Johnson Brothers.
I couldn’t resist buying them because they made me think of my friend Judy who does such gorgeous tables with her collection of transferware. She also put me onto the King’s Crown thumbprint glassware which I love and that works perfectly with these dishes.So does the ruby red that I picked up at an antique show several years ago.
I found two Fostoria candleholders the other day at an antique store, and they seem to be a perfect addition. Fostoria also reminds me of my mother.Oh yes, this lady and her friend just happen to have the right colors in their dresses so to the center of the table they go to add a touch of whimsy and preside over it all.
The table is set, twilight is falling, candles are glowing, guests will soon arrive…..I’m ready!
What fun it is to participate in Tablescape Thursday where there are lots of creative ideas.
