Cherries Jubilee

This week's inspiration came from red/white polka dotted napkins. I bought the dinner plates a year or so ago, stashed them away and forgot about them until I needed something to go with the napkins. I pulled them out and they were the right shade of red...hurray!

The dinner plates are Cherries Jubilee by Sonoma. I paired them with some white Alfred Meakin salad plates and an unmarked red soup bowl. The glassware is clear with a mottled red stem/base.

There are two red with white and two white with red dinner plates.

The centerpiece is a simple white tureen and white candlesticks with cream candles.

Rim shot. The sterling flatware is Oneida Afterglow.

Thanks for taking the time to stop is always appreciated.

I will be joining these parties this week.

Marigene, at first glance, the napkins in the goblet reminded me of strawberries. They look great with your cherry tablescape. What a lovely table for summer!

Hey, Marigene!!! You find some of the BEST stuff!!! I love the reverse dishes!!! I have never seen a set that reverses like that! I suppose I've seen it done with the dinner and salad plates, but never with just the dinner plates. The reverse patterns make it SO much more interesting!!!! The napkins are really cool, too. I like the edging. I hope you're staying as cool as possible out there "In the Middle of Nowhere"!!! :-) We're headed to Pittsburg again this weekend!

Hi Marigene!

I am just crazy about red, and I first notice those cute red napkins. The cherry places are great, and I like the goblets, have never seen any like them.

I haven't bought anything at Savers except books, so far.

What a cheery, cherry tablescape, dear friend! I adore the way the pattern background changes...what fun to decorate with!!! The tureen makes a great centerpiece and I was enjoying the background of your damask tablecloth! Your cabinet in the background is quite entriquing!

The red and white warms me up and that's a good thing tonight as it is very damp and cool. Polka dots are always a winner for me. You amaze me with all you find.

Deb, I have no idea who the maker is...I found them at the thrift store and haven't seen any others. Sorry I can't help you.
