Tablescape Tuesday ~ Bavarian Dishes

It’s time to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Tuesday.

This week I’m sharing a table setting of Bavarian china. This table and setting is in my condo in California. Most of my stash of table goodies are at my home in Washington so this was a fun challenge for me here.

 

I bought this set of Bavarian Dishes from a local thrift store. The silverplate flatware with B engraved on them was a wonderful find at Goodwill in Bellevue, Washington. The Pearl napkin rings were from Target clearanced. The napkins are from Sur la Table. The Goblets, Vase, and tablecloths came from Goodwill also.

 

I really like the iridescense in the tea cups and the gold handles.

 

For more Tablescapes visit Susan here.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage demanding a ransom that I can’t afford. So frustrating as I try to clean up my posts and delete their ugly squares of black and grey off my blog posts!

Set The Tea Table ~ Bavarian Dishes

Some of you know already that I’m living in a small condo in Southern California right now and my regular home with my kids and my stuff is in the Seattle Area of Washington. Most of my tea goodies and entertaining goodies are in Washington. I didn’t have any tea-cups and saucers in California until today! Look at the bargain I found at a thrift store in our little downtown today.

 

6 cups and saucers, 6 dessert plates, 5 salad plates, and a creamer. It’s Bavarian H & Co. china. Now here’s the real exciting thing, I got all of this for $15.00!! Now I’m going to be able to have a fun tea here in California with the goodies I found today and with what I can add from the condo stash. Here’s my mock tea table without food.

 

 

 

The inside of the tea-cups are iridescent.

 

“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone: “so I can’t take more.” “You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.” ~ Lewis Carroll ~ Alice In Wonderland

Oh and the store threw this Bavarian bowl in for nothing!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!
