Tablescape #10

I'm celebrating my 100th post!!!

Please join me in my home for tea and a delicious lunch.  I hope you enjoy our restful and beautiful Autumn day before the rush of the Christmas season begins. 

Each person has an individual cup, saucer and luncheon plate.  I have provided salt and pepper at each place setting.  I will serve the Cozy Corner Chicken Salad in the wine glasses and sugar and milk is on the table.  I will bring the pots of tea to the table as soon as the water is hot.  Please find a favorite place setting and make yourself at home.

I love the old cut work cloths and embroidered pieces but the largest I've seen so far is 102". I guess we need a smaller family and table if I want a vintage beauty on my table, lol!

  28. Hi Betty,
    congrats on your post # 100. I've stopped by from Beverly's PS and I'm so glad i have.
    Oh my, you are a girl after my own heart.
    your Harvest tablescape is divine and i love each and every teacup you have shared. I'm a novice vintage/antique teacups collectors and yours are all really precious. were I to pick one I guess I'd go for the Rosenthal Pompadour pattern... or maybe the 'Sylvia' Thomas Ivory... I must confess that in front of such beauties I'm a little green with envy!!
    Have a great weekend.

  29. Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Thanksgiving! Your vintage table settings are lovely.

  30. Congrats on 100 posts! What a beautiful table, I love all of the different settings! I'm especially fond of your two tiered dish-enjoy:@)

  32. Congratulations on your 100th post! You have a magnificent collection of gorgeous cups and suacers. Thank you for sharing your lovely table design. Cherry Kay

  33. Congratulations on your 100th post! What a welcoming tea. It's so neat that each place has it's own pattern. That Bavarian one is beautiful - well, they're all beautiful, but I particularly like the Bavarian one.
