A Table for Presidents' Day!

We had a burst water pipe which flooded our sunroom and butler's pantry as well as part of our kitchen. Everything from those rooms is in my Dining Room while we are renovating - so my dining room table is out of commission for a bit! But I had to put a little display together for Presidents' Day!

In the foreground is a tea cup in the James K. Polk White House china pattern. It was a Christmas gift from my daughter Carmen. James K. Polk  In the background is an ornament tree with ornaments which are replicas of different administrations White House china patterns.

I have miniature plates for seven patterns. To see a table I did several years ago where I gave a brief explanation of each, click HERE.

One sad note, all but one of these was from Woodmere China company and are no longer available. I have an alert set for Ebay so I can continue my collection!
