I am calling this week's tablescape Le Château de ma Mère, in honor of the French novel by Marcel Pagnol and the film by the same name...My Mother's Castle...because I am using my Old Britain Castles china for Mothers Day! We will be having a special lunch in my sunny dining room.Our co-host today is Baby Kitty, who is very excited, because, as some of you may know, he considers me his mother, since I bottle fed the little rascal from the day he was born! He is taking particular interest in seeing that the table is set just so!
Two of the places are set with the round plates...
...and two of the places are set with the square! I really like these! I think they add a little something unexpected.
I am also using four different Spode plates to add even more interest. This one is called "Girl at Well."
This one is called "Woodman."
This is my favorite. It's called "Rome."
And finally, this one is called "Botanical."
I love the creamer and sugar from the Castles pattern...especially the sugar bowl. It looks like a little tureen!
I found these salt and pepper shakers at a little antique store near me. Aren't they cute? I can't resist anything with grapes on it!
I am also using my mom's Kings Crown goblets. The wine glasses were Goodwill finds.
The center piece is my favorite frenchy pitcher from Marshalls filled with faux hydrangeas. The flatware was my mom's...Towle's Silver Flutes.
