I guess I am on a blue kick right now. This is a table just for the fun of setting, it isn't one we would sit down to eat at. The inspiration for this table begins with a click of the mouse...eBay. I was looking to see if there were any more Vera Bradley My Home Collection blue chargers. What I found were 5 dinner plates and 3 mugs in the pattern...at a price I couldn't pass up, less than $40 for all. There is a seller asking $24.95 for one mug! I knew I got a deal when I saw that listing!
I have started the layering with the blue charger and on top of that is a Gibson Regalia dinner plate. Next is the VB blue dinner plate that matches the charger, next in the stack is an unmarked creamy white luncheon plate. The next layer is Bordello Pinheiro salad plates in The Frog Service pattern. The final layer is the Copeland Spode Valencia cream soup set.
The April Cornell napkins are brand new from Savers, they still have the original price tags. I paid $1.99 for 4 of them...I just notice one is different than the other three! They are all the same colors so I didn't notice it until I was setting the table. Can you detect the odd one?
The glassware is Colony Whitehall in light blue and the wine stem is Noritake Provincial.
The centerpiece is just a blue and white handled cachepot with a few apples, white candle sticks and candles. I am into simple so far this year!
These dishes make a really nice placesetting even though they won't get used this time!
