Texas Butterflies Arrive for Dinner

Lovely, colorful buterflies adorn my dinning table.
They are fluttering on every possible surface.
Flowered Lenox vases contain an assortment of brillantly
bright butterflies.

Paul Cardew's butterfly teapot is the center
of the butterfly themed table.

Lenox "Butterfly Meadow" chinaware creates a lovely
design with six different salads and dinner plate motifs.
Each place setting has a vibrant green placemat and a
complimentary napkin. Each napkin ring has an attached
butterfly.

The above setting is another example of the the
Lenox tableware. The green glassware
was a "99 Cent Store" purchase, what a bargain!
The flatware has a soft green palette.


Here is a closer look at the Lenox vase and the flurry of butterflies.


My favorite butterflies are from the porcelain company
Villeroy and Boch.

Gorgeous butterfly tablescape. I love your postcard header and every time I go to the airport in baltimore they had a huge poster at the car rental of this tea pot. Any idea where this teapot is located?

Butterflies are everywhere!!! Seeing your table reminds me of my son when he was a boy. He loved chasing & catching butterflies. Brings back wonderful memories when I see butterflies. Your Lenox china is beautiful.
