I thought it would be fun to use the primary colors found on this vintage tablecloth. I sort of "built" this table around the tablecloth and the yellow bucket of daisies and Kermit pom mums that I used as a centerpiece.
These are actually fresh flowers; about 2 weeks ago I went to a bridal shower luncheon and these buckets were centerpieces on the tables. After the shower, the hostess asked some of the guests if they wanted to take one home. I can't believe that after 2 weeks it still looks so fresh!
Another pedestal that matches some of the plates is perfect for holding a selection of pastries or scones.
I loved the mix of patterns, both fun and fancy..........
Each place setting gets an egg cup for a soft-boiled egg.
I love these vintage plates; they have no markings on them, so I have no idea the name or maker. I had found another whole set of these, including the dinner plates and a serving platter at an antique store, but foolishy didn't buy them then. I went back about 2 weeks later and of course they were gone. Now I know that when I see something that I love, I should just buy it right away!!!
When I saw this tablecloth, I knew I had to have it.
