One of the hundreds of Haviland Limoges patterns graces my table for two today. Whether dressed up or down, this soft setting always makes for a bit of refinement to sit down to on occasion.
This assymetrical design has a spray of flowers in the center and a few different ones around the rim.
I only have a few pieces of this particular pattern, but it mixes with others so well I can use it to extend my other settings.
A vintage pair of gold rimmed martini glasses serve as wine stems here. Old glass has such character and adds a bit more interest to the layout.
All is laid on a vintage pink linen embroidered cloth from Madiera, Portugal. A vintage Peach colored Damask tablecloth serves as a the table skirt.
Napkins are vintage damask with a hand crochet hem. Super soft as well.
Here a detail of the applique table topper makes for a little more interest and romance.
The woven detail in the under layer does too.
Here's a sample of the variation in the plate pattern on the rim that is so typical of Limoges.
There's also a rose design on the vintage flatware.
A couple of lit candles completes the scene.
A glass art deco double candlestick is the only centerpiece for this small table. The cranberry base makes for a nice contrast for all the pastels.
A little soft music, and maybe a French menu, makes for a perfectly romantic celebration table for two.
A covered butter dish is one of the interesting pieces I have in this pattern.
The small bread or dessert plates repeat the pattern of the dinner plates.

Ciao! for now!
