Cuisine Kathleen's Springtime Invitation Table for One

Cuisine Kathleen at "Let's Dish" ( has invited tablescapers to join her this Wednesday for a Spring Time tablescape event. Pat jumped at the chance to do a table for it:
Over view of the table

The place setting

I love these glasses -from Pier 1

Pat used the colors from this bowl as the starting point for the table

The burgundy colored charged is "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

Close up of the flatware - it belonged to Pat's late Mother-in-Law and is gorgeous

Pat used an ornate silver butterfly napkin ring to coordinate with the flatware

You can see from the pitcher why Pat selected the arrangement flowers and colors

This is why I love these glasses - the rim is so unique

One last look
Where it came from:
Burgundy Charger - "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa from eBay
Dinnerware - "Butterfly Meadow" by Lenox from a local Department store long out of business
Flatware - "Marguerite" by Gorham Silver (from Pat's late Mother-in-Law)
Glassware - from Pier 1 two years ago
Napkin Ring - from Tuesday Morning last year
Burgundy Napkin - Handmade by Pat
Chiffon Overlay - a gift from Pat
Candles - Tuesday Morning
Candle Holders - from Art & Old Things (a great local antique boutique)

We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen "Let's Dish" this Wednesday:
We will also be joining Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" this Thursday:


  1. Butterfly Meadow ~ what could be more perfect for a spring table. I've always loved these dishes from afar. Sadly they are not part of our dish stash. '-)
    Beautiful table for one in every detail!

  2. I just completed my Easter Dinner table with Butterfly Meadow and can't get enough of this pattern. Your table is just lovely. Spring is definitely in the air!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  3. You have certainly captured Spring on this table. I love the Lenox china, but I was so amazed when I saw your Marguerite flatware. I have been yearning for that pattern for quite a while (silver is definitely one of my obsessions!), but I have not purchased any yet. I think it is one of the prettiest patterns - how fortunate you have to own some of it! Happy Spring!!

  4. the Butterfly Meadow pattern and you have used it wonderfully. Score!
