Vintage Inspired Table

Today I'm sharing a quick tablescape I put together the other night.  It was too warm to use the oven so a crisp green salad topped with grilled chicken strips was on the menu.


I used my Martha Stewart / Wedgwood rose plates with some vintage flatware.


I love mixing old and new ...



Arcoroc Rosaline pink stemware creates a little sparkle.  A gorgeous shade of pink with raised swirled ridges.  These glasses, made in France, mix nicely with other pieces.


The pretty centerpiece is vintage depression glass from the 1930's.  This bowl was made by Fostoria Glass Co. in the 'Fairfax' pattern.


All I added was a floating candle with some pink rose petals from the garden.


This beautiful vintage napkin with cutwork and monogrammed with the letter "H" was a treasured find.  I purchased the set of five for $1.80! 


A vintage inspired tablecloth is one of my favorites with its pink flowers and soft green leaves.


A bird's eye view ...

Pretty pink roses in your china and I love the scallop on the edge of the plate. The tablecloth flowers are perfect with your pink glassware and china. Even your sweet flatware has the scallops and flower motif. Please, pop over to view my find used in a vacation tablescape!

Thanks, Pam
