Lunch With Ingrid

Like many fellow tablescapers, I am a devotee of eBay. I love to check it out. I love to shop on it. And I have found some tremendous buys (and some not so great, if I am honest.) Well, the other day, I won two very hard to find salad plates in the "Ingrid" pattern by Bordallo Pinheiro at a great price. Well, I then received a very apologetic email saying one of the plates had a chip and that I would get my money back for the entire purchase......I quickly emailed back and said I would take the chipped plate with the other one - no problem since it was for our Table For One Blog. The seller mailed me four accent plates in that pattern for my trouble at no additional cost. Was I in plate heaven!!!!! I can't say enough.

So here's the table using one of my favorite Bordallo patterns:
The table - mostly white with just the right amount of pink

The flatware is ceramic handled "Primary" by Noritake

The "Ingrid" pattern is gorgeous - very detailed and highly glazed

A staple in our "tablescaping" cupboard - the charger is from Maryland China Company

Glasses are from Portieux (a gift from our very generous Cousin who also loves dishes)

Our Mom used this individual soup tureen 

I love the detail on the vintage luncheon napkin

Where it came from:
White Charger - Maryland China Company (mail order)
Dinner Plate - "Ingrid" by Bordallo Pinheiro (a gift from our cousin)
Salad Plate - "Ingrid" by Bordallo Pinheiro from eBay

  1. These pink plates are gorgeous. I've never seen that pattern. Love the pink and white. Just beautiful.


  2. Beautiful! I am in love with your chargers every time you use them! Your plates are beautiful! I hope you use them often. I am drooling over your table. I don't buy on E-bay. I am afraid if I start I won't stop. I stick to thrift stores etc., where I have to pay cash! lol
