A Little Crystal...A Little Silver...

Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her lovely tablescapes and other participants as well. It's so fun to see what people put together to share.

Welcome to my tablescape! I'm so glad that you stopped by for a visit!

I'll begin with the tiniest pieces...I found these souvenir spoons at my local thrift store and loved their little designs. I couldn't help but wonder who they belonged to and what their story might have been. I wanted to include them in my table today, so they were placed in my Waterford creamer. This is placed on a glass tray, also from a thrift store {actually it was picture frame in its former life.}

My dishes are a recent purchase: Lenox, Opal Innocence Carved.

My stemware is also Lenox, they were wedding gifts.

The silver is International, Prelude, also a wedding gift and the linens were purchased from Dillards approx. 20 years ago.{There is a matching tablecloth with this set.}

The candelabras belonged to my husband's grandmother. They are Gorham.

The pitcher was a wedding present from one of my bridesmaids...

...the tray it is sitting on was a thrift store find. It was very tarnished...but with a little rubbing and buffing, it turned out fine. See the candle holder on the right? It's the matching Waterford piece to the creamer holding the little spoons. This is the sugar bowl.

I hope you enjoyed your visit. Thanks again for stopping by...enjoy your Thursday!


  1. Oh so pretty! I am taken away...
    thank you...
    I really enjoyed this elegance..

  2. Oh, OH! I want to come sit at this table! It really "speaks" to me, as I LOVE silver and crystal... Such a beautiful, elegant tablescape. You did a nice job putting this together and I'll keep looking at all your lovely pieces. I like how you have used the water pitcher for flowers. I found a pitcher similar at a garage sale this summer...keeping this idea in mind! ;)
