Royal Doulton Real Old Willow Table

One of my favorite blue and white combination dish patterns is "Real Old Willow." It has been produced by several manufacturers - mine is by Royal Doulton. Pat used it for this week's table and put together a simple but sweet table setting for one.

Pat used a gold leaf charger to bring out the gold on the plate

I love this blue champagne flute - no doubt about it, it is my favorite. I saw it once in a book written by the late interior designer and  tablescaper extraordinaire, Joe Nye, and I knew that I had to have it. It took me months and months checking eBay, boutiques, internet, antique stores, yard sales, etc., and I finally found them.....

Naturally, Pat had to have wine in a blue wine bottle to coordinate with the table

Here's where it came from:
Gold Leaf Charger - from Costco years ago
Dinnerware - "Real Old Willow" by Royal Doulton from Replacements and eBay
Flatware - pattern unknown by F.B. Rogers & Son from eBay
Glassware - "Swirl" from Pier 1 several years ago
Blue Champagne Flute - from eBay years ago
Blue Napkin - Handmade by Pat
Napkin ring and Gold Bowl - from Pier 1
Lead Crystal Candle Holders - from Tuesday Morning
Candles and Silk Roses - from Michael's

  1. Real Old Willow is a beautiful pattern, and the blue champagne flute is a perfect companion. Your table for one is exquisite. One would not feel alone at this beautifully set table.

  2. Love the Real Old Willow! It looks great with the gold charger (of course).
