How can you resist these? Clearly I couldn’t…
When I saw the orange tulips and Trader Joe’s I just KNEW which tablecloth they would go with. This is a gorgeous deco-inspired piece, possibly from the 40′s. It just demanded the orange and red Fiesta with the green as an accent.
Of course, along with the red Fiesta had to go red bakelite silverware. I’m finding this everywhere right now, and don’t hesitate to buy if it isn’t perfect. Many of these sets ended up at people’s summer cabins or weekend retreats. Some have scratches, some were washed with harsh detergents in the dish washer. As long as the piece is sound (metal parts not loose, no pieces missing), you like them AND they are reasonably priced, take a chance. For a dollar or two a piece you can have some fun.
The duck creamer and sugar are from a Donald Duck kids tea set. I’ve never seen the tea pot, which is a much larger duck, in person but it gives me something to look for at the flea markets. It’s always good to have a goal : ) The glasses are part of a pitcher/glass set, the frosted orange and green are yummy here. Orange has never been high on my list of colors to buy but I have to say, its moving on up! The napkins are vintage from our favorite tablecloth lady at the Alameda Flea Market.
Here’s an up close shot of the center of the border, very deco! Love the red ‘brick’ border!
Ashton kitty! I guess since he’s orange, and many things on the table were orange, he felt he was the perfect accessory : )
Tomorrow: It’s berry time!
