Since I had decorated my mantel with French faience, I decided my sweetheart and I would dine on more French Quimper in front of the fireplace. Sometimes, I just like to pretend I’m in the French countryside. Maybe my sweetheart will get the hint that I’d like to go to France.
His and hers place settings.
I used a clear glass dinner plate on top of a metal serving tray.
Salt cellars at each place setting.
I used a little Quimper pitcher, on top of an unusual French faience plate, to serve salad dressing.
I probably should have put more flowers in this vase, but these two blooms on one stem just looked so pretty, I didn’t want to distract from the flower.
Although I cut this flower from our garden, I have no idea what it is. Maybe someone else can identify it for me.
The dessert tray is ready for our hot fudge cakes.
The two salad plates are reproduction Quimper (made in Portugal – Jay Willfred). The blue and white flatware was a purchase from Kohl’s a number of years ago. The salad fork is our wedding pattern (Towle Old Master). Other pieces are French Quimper, collected from estate sales, on line, and even in a really junky junk store one time. The tablecloth is a Williams Sonoma that I purchased at a garage sale.
Merci beaucoup for visiting my blog. (Still pretending!) laurie
