White Wednesday Patio Party


We've got out the bunting and we're celebrating with Faded Charm the 100th post of White Wednesday! Woo Hoooo!






A patio party is perfect for summer whites with our textured linens and ironstone serving pieces. A tuck of handmade lace and our best Wedgewood make it a little extra special for my favorite party of the week. Congratulations Kathleen! 



The flags are a vintage crochet edge that I found just this way except joined in a ring as though for a tablecloth or pillowcase which had been cut away. One snip, and voila! 


A vintage ironstone platter serves as a tray set on a heavy French linen table cover perfect for an outdoor setting. Vintage damask napkins are large enough to lay across your lap.








The creamware jug is Lord Nelson English Pottery.



Antique homespun linen towel with hand crochet lace trim.



Antique Wedgewood salad plates.







A doll sized chair can hold napkins, a small vase or plant for a centerpice, or hold flatware for a fun garden party accent.















I'm joining the celebration!
 Come on over for the usual wonderful white posts.
I'm also sharing at

Ciao! for now!
Jacqueline

The Robin and Sparrow said...

Thank you for visiting my blog Jacqueline! I had to saunter over to yours to greet you. Oh my goodness is your patio, English couryard, or whatever other description would apply here so serene and peaceful. I enjoyed virtually sitting on your bistro table waiting for tea and scones. It reminded me of a quaint cafe my hubby and I rested at in Europe many full moons ago.

Just gorgeous and I love the little pots and that English creamer. Every time I picked up a white piece at the flea market they weren't real vintage ironstone so I put them back. Thanks for joining WUW.
