Tuesday Tidbits #39 Mom’s Dishes

It’s Tuesday! Hello… and welcome to this week’s Tidbits.

As many of you know I like to share a tablescape here and there. I follow many accounts on Instagram and some very lovely blogs who do the same. So today I decided to use my Mom’s pretty dishes that my sister and I bought for her many years ago!

The roses on the plates are subtle but yet exquisite.

I wanted an informal table so I did not use a tablecloth. However as I went along… it began to take on a formal look.

The creamer and sugar bowl do not match the china but I had to use them. I bought these when I was 16! I had a Princess House Party and invited a few friends. It was kind of like a Hope Chest Party! I have a few other pieces from Princess House as well.

I purchased the runner at an antique store. I love vintage linens. And thought it would look great for this tablescape.

I even got my swan salts out…

As I strolled through my gardens… I didn’t have enough roses in bloom for a centerpiece so I decided to use hydrangeas with a single rose in the middle.

I chose the coffee pot that matches the china. Rose petals in a small bowl adds a bit of charm.

The Apple Salad is served in glass sherbets trimmed in ruby red glass.

The Apple Salad was quite simple to make. I diced 4 apples and tossed them in Strawberry Yogurt. Dried cranberries and walnuts were added as well. It came out quite delicious. I’m not an Apple Waldorf fan so this recipe was perfect.

Do you enjoy setting a lovely table for dinner?

Until Next Time ~Nancy
