For the last few months, I’ve had my vintage lace tablecloth on the dining table many days. It reminds me of my mother who nearly always had a lace tablecloth on our dining table. Recently, I got a wonderful find in vintage American china by Homer Laughlin. One plate is in the Homer Laughlin China Virginia Rose E 37 N 8 pattern. There are several patterns with the name Virginia Rose – it’s the designation E 37 N 8 that tells you it was a pattern introduced in the 1930’s.
The second plate by Homer Laughlin was made for the Home Institute in the Priscilla pattern.
I used woven mats on the lace tablecloth with woven napkin rings and coasters. I love the contrast between shiny crystal and china and the soft lace against woven grasses – sort of ying and yang. Adding texture always makes a happy combination.
My centerpiece is pink and white roses with alstroemeria.
I’m also using the vintage tea cups and saucers I got this spring at a church yard sale. One has no markings while the other is stamped Royal Halsey on the saucer. It is exquisite.
I hope you enjoyed my soft rose table.
Thanks for the visit.
