When I unfolded this tablecloth from the pile and saw not only the red and blue border but…
the ribbons and swirls in the center, it all made me smile : )
We’ve got my favorite red, my favorite blue AND a happy maypole-like center, time for TEA!
My red Fiesta luncheon plates were the perfect color, that gorgeous blue-red, and then I piled on a white Fiesta salad plate. The little white Fiesta tumblers are surprising wonderful to drink tea from and chat with friends. I have the perfect blue-edged vintage napkins but only two : ( I threw a red one in there for fun and it looks great!
My favorite tea set is back – check out the color match there!
And what is that in the creamer?
Cherries that are actually made to put on a hat. They are celluloid, like what film is made from. They are delicate and beautiful. Why in the creamer?
It’s unexpected : ) And I love cherries.
The vase in the back is Fiesta, it’s their Millenium II vase. For me that was the most exciting thing of the whole millenium rollover.
I did have an assistant today – he hopped up on the table, grabbed the cherries and took off into the back yard!
I got the cherries back unharmed. But then he turned his attention to that which was taking MY attention away from HIM – the camera!
It’s pretty hard to get mad at something so cute.
Since I JUST got home from staying up all night seeing the new Harry Potter movie, I’ve got some fresh inspiration for future table settings. Let’s just say its a shame the theater wouldn’t let me bring in a picnic basket : )
Tomorrow – Ivy for the book club
