Guess what? I just love white embossed plates! But Wedgwood design always seems like the queen of china to me. I only have a few dinner plates of this design, and the smaller plates, also Wedgwood, are a set of four that I recently splurged on when I discovered them at a friend's new shop. Aren't they gorgeous?
Fall seems like the only season that makes me think of food. But on the first of October it's all about wanting soups, stews, and all kinds of baked goodies! The nice thing about a one dish meal is that it is so easy to serve buffet style for a big crowd. And we have a few of those headed our way!
You first saw this tablecloth on a bed that I posted about this past summer. But another reason it may look familiar is that this theme is common for me. Cross stitch crochet in a dark thread. I have a little collection of it going now.
This version has a great rectangle design in the middle that just begs for a new silver tray I acquired over the summer. It's the perfect size for me! I love silver in the cooler seasons, and I am especially nuts over hollow handled knives lately. I'll be sticking them in that little Spode embossed pitcher standing by.
I visited a friend recently that has inherited a whole set of this gorgeous china from his mother. It is breathtaking displayed all together in his china hutch.
I just love the leafy transferware design on these smaller plates that I will use as bread or dessert plates, or for a small tea. Doesn't that sound cozy? Golden Ivy for some golden fall day. . . .
Another new addition to the scene is this big ironstone tureen I bought this past summer. Maybe this stuff turns up left and right for you in the Midwest or wherever, but it is quite hard to come by in these parts. Just waiting for its first pot of stew!
I have a ton of options as a base, but this viney transferware version is my platter of choice today. Soft patterns like this one are my current favorite in brown transferware these days.
Is there a fall buffet in your future?
There really is nothing easier!
I hope that it turns out wonderfully for you!
