Table For Mom

This week's table is a "dry run" for next week's Mother's Day table. The china that Pat used is Blue Danube -  a set that our Mother was buying before she passed away. I completed the set in her memory and have been very glad that I did. (Needless to say, we came by our dish addiction naturally since our Mother had the disease long before us.)
The table

Pat lined the individual casserole with a simple white liner to show it off a little

Flatware is "Grand Colonial" by Wallace - a gift from our cousin

I bought two individual casseroles - one for Mom and one for me - when she was in the hospital. Sadly, she never got to use it. I still miss her after all this time....

Pat used two chargers - the blue glass charger is by Bormioli

Pat and I got these white chargers on sale at Pier 1 recently

There are four different backs to Blue Danube. This one was used from 1951 to 2000.

Pat was going to use Blue Danube candle holders that we have, but the table looked over-whelming with "blue" so she went with blue and white Dansk to tone it down a little.

One last look

Where it came from:
White Charger - from Pier 1
Blue Glass Charger - by Bormioli from Ross
Dinnerware - "Blue Danube" (maker unknown) from Gottshalks (a local department store long out of business) and Replacements (after several earthquakes)
White Liner for Individual Casserole - "Centura" by Corning from Pat
Flatware - "Grand Colonial" sterling silver by Wallace Silver Company
Glassware - from Pier 1
Blue Champagne Flute - by World Market from eBay
Napkin - vintage from our collection
Candle Holders - by Dansk years old
Blue Glass Rocks, Silk Flowers, Candles, and Vase - from Michael's

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

  1. Beautiful dishes and you've set everything out wonderfully. Such a special memory to use the dishes your mother started collecting. I know your "full" table is going to look stunning!
