Turkey Time

As we have moved into our new house, it was a joy to set the table for Thanksgiving.
 Our turkey teapot set is ready for a service of turkey and pumpkin pie.
 The lighted candles are embossed with fall leaves waiting to glow at the feast.
The turkey plumage is in gold, blue, and brown. Produced by 222 Fifth has tree branches circling the rim. 
The colors of the plate are matched to the napkin, the placemat, and the tableware.
The gold rimmed glassware show the leaves of wheat, which  is the symbol for the plenty of the autumn harvest.
 We will enjoy dining at this festive place setting with family.
 The hutch serves as a backdrop with its pumpkin signs and the two Anna Lee scarecrow mice hoping for a crumb to fall from the table. 
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.

GARDEN BEAUTY

True Excitement
The prospect of a set of twelve in dinnerware caused my imagination to think of two tablescapes!
Dining Room
"Garden Beauty" by 222 Fifth is the catalyst for the designs.  
The teapot with the creamer and sugar bowl were a pleasant find to create a centerpiece. The pale green cake stand lifts the presentation.
Each place setting in the dining room has a colorful combination!
The hues are balanced by soft greens in the candles and napkins with the accents of bright pinks in the flatware and flowers.
The scalloped edges of the square salad plates enhance the flowered china.
The dinner plates provide the colors of turquoise, blues, celery, greens, fuchsia, and pinks!
A curving cup and saucer lends itself to a choice of your favorite hot tea!
Vintage linens is the blessing of a lovely place mat background with precise colors and garden feel.
Beautiful pink and fuchsia roses balance the centerpiece and give a touch of nature!  

Breakfast Room
Sunny setting for a casual affair!
The changes of color combinations are immediately achieved with a display of blues and lavenders!

The place setting is calmed by the turquoise linens and blue footed goblets. A casual feel is achieved by the addition of a mug.
The centerpiece is a simple combination of the matching cake stand and the beautiful white china teapot.

Dramatic purple orchids ringed with white are displayed in the teapot!
The mug is sided up to a blue stemmed glass.  
The beaded edging of the flatware creates a more formal feel and the silver adds another cooling factor.
The purple and pink flower combinations 
plus all the greenery give the windows and window seat a " Garden Beauty" of the china!
