Lucky me to be given a beautiful arrangement of flowers left from tables of a friend’s daughter’s wedding reception. Relocating them to my table, they became a source of inspiration for a ladies’ lunch.
A favorite vintage French tablecloth became the background and these oft used pears surround the flowers. Even though there is a slightly grown up look to the setting, it still satisfies my need for simple, understated.
The flowers provided welcome opportunity to use the cranberry dinnerware from the 1940’s. Would you have guessed square would have been in vogue then? And, since mixing and matching is my thing, clear plates, again vintage, were selected to sit alongside.
After trying several napkins, these were the final choice since they are almost the same color as the background in the cloth. You may have seen the flatware a number of times, but have you noticed that each piece has a different pattern? You don’t think that may be why it was chosen!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
