Are You Going to Buttercup Faire?

When my daughter Emily was still in High School, we were at T J Maxx and saw lots of Spode Buttercup Faire china on clearance. She loved it, so we bought all they had. THEN we found out it was being discontinued. :-( We kept a lookout on Ebay and Replacements and she has quite a nice collection now. So last time she was home from college, she asked if she could do a tablescape for my blog. Here it is:

One of the fun things about this pattern is that there are several sub-patterns so you can mix and match. The two tables above vary because we changed the salad plate.

Emily used a yellow tablecloth, green straw place mats, white napkins, green glassware and put either a mug or a teacup and saucer at each place setting.

For the centerpiece, she used a yellow vase with zinnias and flanked that with golden candlesticks with a green and orange candle ring and white candle.

I love both looks!
