Vintage Lace & Roses Table

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.

    1. I have no idea how old it is. I got it at a thrift store. It’s a little long for my table, but I don’t care beause it’s so beautiful

  1. I really like the effect of the lace on the woven mats. You got the tea cups and saucers at a yard sale, wow. They are so delicate and pretty.

    1. A local church had a “yard sale” in the parking lot one Friday in May. There was a lady just retired who was downsizing and sold me her last 2 cups and saucers from her collection. $1 each set – unbelievable.

  2. It would never have occurred to me to combine lace with woven mats. So pretty! The Royal Halsey teacup is gorgeous.

    Thank you for stopping by. I hope you find the walnut crunch green tea.

  3. Hi Carol! I love vintage lace tablecloths and have my grandmother’s on my dining room table all scrunched up around a barn wood box that my late beloved made for me. Your plates and teacups are so pretty and I love the mix of them. Your flowers are so pretty, too.
    Thank you for your visit. I normally reply by email, but you’re a no-reply comment blogger, so I’m thanking you here.

    1. I didn’t know I was a no-reply comment blogger. Strange. I do thank you for taking the time to visit me. I appreciate that and your sweet comment. God bless!
