Pretty in Pink Depression Glass Table

For this week's table, Pat decided to use a place setting that we have not used before. She chose Royal Albert's "Blossom Time" since the cherry trees are beginning to bloom. Not a favorite of pink, the table was a bit of a challenge for Pat. She went through the Depression glass that I own and came up with a really unique table.
Pat started with a bright rose pink piece of tulle and covered the plain white tablecloth to make it a soft pink.

The place setting

Flatware is silverplate "Plantation" by Oneida

The charger is pink "American Sweetheart" Depressionware by McBeth-Evans

Glassware is "Rosaline" by J.G. Durand

Instead of a flower arrangement, Pat added a small bundle of roses held together by a pink ribbon

Where it came from:
Dinnerware - "Blossom Time" by Royal Albert from our collection
Pink Glass Charger - "American Sweetheart" by McBeth-Evans from Replacements
Flatware - "Plantation" by Oneida from our Mother
Glassware - "Rosaline" by J.G. Durand
All other pink glassware - Depression Glass from my collection
Salt/Pepper Cellars and spoons - Maryland China Company
Napkin Ring - from a local thrift store
Napkin - Handmade by Pat
Candles, Roses, and Ribbon - Michael's

We will be joining Christine's "Table It!" blog party at Rustic & Refined:

We will also be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:

  2. What a treasure you have, these dishes are over the top amazing. The pink is just the icing on the cake. Thank you for sharing. Janice

  3. So pretty, I love this china. I use it with green glass and a light blue cloth, perfect for spring!

  4. What a pretty the china.......and the depression glass......very Spring like!!

  5. Just beautiful! I'm crazy for pink depression glass and you have maximized its beauty.

  6. Lovely. The pink depression glass is so stunning. I wish I could have started a collection of it myself. I always wanted it to match with my china. Your Blossom Time china is the perfect match with your depression glass. Great match.....very charming.

  7. I never use this word but I am swooning over those Royal albert dishes! The depression glass and stemware couldn't be more perfect with these dishes. That charger is sooo pretty- almost a shame to hide it under the dishes! Love the Oneida silverware- it has an understated elegance about it. Beautiful job!

  8. Stunning and perfect for pending spring! I LOVE the Blossom Time china. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  9. Hi Pat & Katie, I just saw your feature on Christine's blog and HAD to stop by to a) meet you and b) tell you how absolutely gorgeous this tablescape is! I also collect dishes, and antique with 2 of my 6 sisters, but I end up taking all the pictures AND writing the blog, lol. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and I look forward to following your posts and looking at more of your tablescaping.
