Since it's just the two of them they'll do something different...eat in the Living Room at the Coffee Table where it's a little fancier than TV trays in front of the television.
Here it is all set up ready and waiting.
These are the components of this tablescape............
Cherry Coffee Table with vintage hexagonal mirror and turn-of-the-century hand-tatted lace runner.
I have included one of my new vintage inspired designs onto this tablescape. I have taken a new footed serving plate, attatched a 1940's hand-tatted doily, and added a serving plate to the top to protect the doily.
Some are plain like this one others will be hand-painted to match the doily colors. They will be available soon on my website and Etsy, but if you'd like to custom order one in a special color I'd be happy to create one for you.
The plates are a very special find I made this past week at the Ohio Valley Antique Mall. They are aluminum porceleain clad plates, marked ' Berens Ware, England'. I know they were probably an 8-pc placesetting in the 40's, but all they had were the 3, so now I'm gonna spend a lot of time trying to locate matching peices...don't ya just hate when that happens ;) They a re each names in the back.........one is the Cottage, the other the Arbor, and lastly Friends. To see them closer just click the pic.
I placed the Cottage plate on top od the footed sering dish for the sandwiches.
The napkins pictured are 1940's hand-crocheted hankies, The Iced Tea Spoons are vintage 1950's and the Silver is Onieda Southern Garden form 1993, which is now discontinued.:(
The iced tea glasses are crystal by Kronos. If you look closely the bottoms have a cross pattern with color fused in. The colors match the plates.
The Sugar Bowl in a very old hand-painted porcelain peice that was a gift. I believe it's marked Austria, but it's so worn I can't be sure. I have the creamer too. The pressed green glass pitcher is Fostoria.
And, lastly these are the salad bowls. Really they are 1950's ice cream bowls, but they work.
