Spode "Rhine" Table

At a quick glance, people might mistake Spode's beautiful pink "Rhine" with the classic, more commonly known "Pink Tower." Both are gorgeous, but "Rhine" is my favorite. It was only produced from 1962 through 1985 and never was as popular as some other Spode patterns. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly hard to find.
The table - simple and sweet

Flatware is "King James" silverplate by Oneida

Another one of Pat's favorite things to do: layer the chargers. This time she used white Depressionware Cremax "Oxford" by MacBeth-Evans Glass Company with a Burgundy "Color Spectrum" charger by Mikasa

Pat layered the placemats - she used a pink linen one topped with a lace placemat to add just a hint of color

The arrangement is made from silk "old roses" 

Glassware is "Omega" Marquis by Waterford
