Tonight, my table revolves around a fantastic piece of transferware, and a beautiful pattern; Charlotte. Named for Queen Charlotte, the pattern depicts a Victorian basket filled to overflow with a lush arrangement of flowers. My centerpiece is the star of the table, an unusual and hard to find beverage dispenser.
The beverage dispenser has a cork and wood spigot for serving.
The lid is removable so you can pour your beverage in the top.
The matching tumblers are so cute! Many of the Charlotte holloware pieces have a usually smaller version of the design on the back side, which is the case with these glasses.
I tend to double up on the napkins for a layered effect, mixing vintage lace, crochet and embroidery.
Oh, and transferware napkin rings of course to hold the napkins.
I am liking blue and white, more and more.
This cute gingham flatware adds a fun touch of whimsy and casual 'picnic' charm to the table!
I chose a dinner plate with a deeper blue border and layered with the Charlotte soup bowls on top. I ate dinner with the kids at this table tonight. Trevor helped me move some furniture around today so I made him his favorite Chicken Pot Pie for dinner. It's not the ideal meal to eat when it's a sweltering 110°!
These pretty goblets were a Hobby Lobby clearance find last year. I love the etched look! They bring a bit of light and sparkle to the table.
Candles, are from Zest Candle, who generously supply me with gorgeous candles for my tablescapes. Tonight I used the Rose Taper Candles. They are lovely.
Now, my kids keep calling me as they're waiting for me to watch a scary movie with them.
Just one more thing before I go.....
