Coalport Revelry Table

Pat's name for our set of Coalport "Revelry" dinnerware is "Birdcage." I'll leave it to you to figure our why.......It's how the whole family refers to it now. I'm not going to be able to change that - and I won't try, but it is a beautiful pattern nonetheless [and a very funny movie especially "that" scene] and sets a lovely table.


Pat chose simple frosted gold flatware since the plate was so busy






Not quite the same pattern as "The Birdcage's" china but you get the drift......

The blue glass charger is from Pier 1

The blue and white vintage napkin is part of our collection






Where it came from:
Blue Glass Charger - from Pier 1 two or three years ago
Dinnerware - "Revelry" by Coalport from wherever we can find it (mostly eBay and Replacements.com)
Flatware - "Kyoto Gold Frost" by Holister from Wayfair last year
Blue Water Goblet - "Navarre" by Fostoria from Pat
Champagne Glass - "Esprit" by Princess House (at least thirty years old)

Paprika and Cobalt Fiestaware Table

One of the many reasons Fiesta(ware) is so popular has to do with its ability to be mixed - the combination of colors are endless and always make for colorful tables. This week's table is no exception.
Pat mixed "Paprika," "White," and Post 86 "Cobalt" Fiesta(ware) 

We found these nifty individual soup tureens on the discount shelf at Pier 1 last year







One of our bargains from Pier 1. We got twelve of these leather-like placemats for ninety-nine cents each. (And since we bought them on a special sale day, we got another 20% off.)

Musical Garden Gnome Table

Spoiler Alert: Pat's Christmas theme this year [each year she decorates her entire house in a different theme] is Garden Gnomes. The entire house will be decorated with Christmas trees and gnomes. She starts early in the year collecting everything she will need. One of her "finds" was at Tuesday Morning this season. She found some cute garden gnomes for her tree but decided to use them for a table this week.
