Tablescape Thursday

It's been a while since I've done a tablescape. Today I want to share a tablescape my daughter did using her Kate Spade china. Any Kate Spade fans out there? My daugher, Ashleigh absolutely loves anything by Kate Spade!
Not a very good picture, but you can see the name and make. I took these photos last year, and thought I had accidentally deleted them, but found them recently!

Each plate has a silver deer in the center and on the cups:

There's also a regal deer in the center of this serving bowl:
My daughter and her husband like simplistic things that are very elegant though simple.

The centerpiece is my son-in-law's grandmother' s antique candlestick:

A child's plate is perfect with child sized silverware:
The silver fork and spoon belonged to both my daughters when they were small.

The napkin rings are silver with small silver bells:

The salt and pepper shakers are small bells:

How cute is that?!

She inherited the silver from me:
It is "Silver Surf" by Steiff. The crystal was also mine, both sets are gifts from my wedding in 1960.

I have forgotten the name of the crystal and can't figure out how to find it, anybody know?
The stems of the tea and water goblets, and the sherbets, are curved at the bottoms, same as the "surf" design on the silver.
I remember the name of the china I chose back then (not shown here) it is Symmetra by Castleton. My daughter also has the china.

The Symmetra china is plain eggshell with a single platinum band around the edge and goes well with her Kate Spade winter china, above.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions to find out the name of this crystal.
It is from the 60s.

Beautiful place setting.

Beautiful centerpiece.

Beautiful silver!

Beautiful crystal:

Beautiful tablescape!

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoyed Ashleigh's winter tablescape!

Welcome back, Katherine! We've missed you, and I love Kate Spade. Ashleigh's table is just wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it. That china is as cute as can be, and I love the bells. Love all the other elements like the crystal, too. Please thank her for sharing her table with us. Great job!

Happy Tablescape Thursday to you...


Sheila :-)

P.S. I know you dropped by my blog earlier, but I just wanted you to know that I did post the first set of pictures from the tour of homes you didn't get to see. I'll post the other part sometime soon. Sorry you couldn't make it!

Beautiful. Elegant but simple.

That really is stunning china! I know your daughter and son-in-law will enjoy it for many years to come. And how wonderful that you've given them your silver and crystal!

Debbie said...

It is, indeed, the simplicity of it that makes it so lovely. I love the way those red candles just stand out.

I love your crystal. It seems like it should be able to be identified because the stems are so unique.

And when I saw that child's plate, that just made it perfect.

FABULOUS Kate Spade dishes!!! I love 'em!!! She comes up with some really cool stuff. I don't have any of hers yet (I've been prohibited to bring another dish into this house until spring!), but it's on the bucket list! The napkin rings are really unique! Love 'em! Very neat flatware, too. The curvy shape is very interesting and a perfect foil to the china. Have a great weekend!

This is quite lovely -- I can see why she's head over heels with her pretty china -- and I'm sure also loving your generous gift of crystal and silver that goes so well. I especially love the s&p bells and the antique candlestick.

Bill said...

It's all very beautiful, Katherine! We can see that your daughter inherited your sense of style and elegance (along with the beautiful crystal and silver you graciously shared with her).

The stemware appears to be Fostoria's "Contour," manufactured from 1955-1971 (so it would have been available when you selected your pattern). Check it out on Replacements:

Hope you have an enjoyable weekend. Thank you for stopping by. It's always a pleasure to hear from you.

Kindest regards,

Sometimes a tablescape is at its most beautiful in its simplicity. I just love the dishes, so delightful with the deer on them! And the salt & pepper shakers, just awesome:-) Everything looks gorgeous. xoxo

Katherine, I hope you're okay. Just checking in to see if all is well. Hope you haven't caught that nasty respiratory bug that has been floating around throughout the country.

Hello Katherine~Hello~Looks like you're off to a fabulous start for the day of ..."l'amour" with this beautiful tablescape.

I feeling an urgency now for Valentines Day, especially since it's just around the corner.
It I've just removed my Christmas wreaths (literally) and now it's time to spread some hearts around.
I'm looking forward to all the inspiration you're sure to be filling my life with this new year.

Sweet Wishes,

P.S. I just wanted to say... how much I adored the bell salt and pepper shakers.
I've a passion for miniatures and what girl can pass up anything shinny, these fit both passions lol.

Sweet wishes,
