Schumann Wild Rose Lunch

Undoubtedly, my favorite pattern of all time is Schumann's "Wild Rose." It was the dinnerware I chose more than forty years ago as my "good" Wedding china. I still love it. It's over-the-top gaudy and sad to admit, to many people, not something that they would want to own. But to me, it is lovely. So, I was thrilled when Pat grabbed several pieces around my house and started to set the Table for One.

Normally, when we use this pattern, Pat sets the table with a very light pink napkin. This time she went with hot pink to add a little whimsy.

Flatware is "Byzantine" by Yamazaki

For a less traditional touch, Pat used Noritake's pink "Entrée" glassware

Next to impossible to find, I only own two napkin rings but I am persistent! It took me over thirty years to find the soup tureen in this pattern.....

Where it came from:
Gold Lame Tablecloth - Ross years ago
Flatware - "Byzantine" by Yamazaki from Horchow's
Glassware - "Entrée" by Noritake (1993-1999) from eBay
Dinnerware - "Wild Rose" by Schumann from anywhere I can find it
Hot Pink Napkin - Handmade by Pat
14" Ivory Tapers - from the Ferndale Emporium (a local gift and kitchen boutique)

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. I don't think that china is over the top and gaudy, I think it is lovely and this table setting shows it off beautifully. I love the soft pinks and the roses. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. It is very pretty - not gaudy, but vintage!

  3. I LOVE this table - the china isn't gaudy, it's beautiful! The simplicity of the other elements on the table bring balance to the whole setting. Just lovely!

  4. These dinner items are gorgeous! I want! It turns eating alone into dining alone. Just beautiful.
