I am dreaming of Spring and reminscing about a trip my husband and I took to the South of France two years ago. These bright French Country linens transport me back to the open markets we visited in Provence.
The bright colors in these placemats and cloth napkins reflect the vibrancy of warm summer months, while rich blooms bring an air of festivity and joy to the table. I chose a rainbow napkin fold to be placed in tall crystal glasses to showcase the pretty pattern (see my video demo of the rainbow napkin fold at the bottom of this post). These linens can be purchased at www.RedRoosters.com.
The plates are Spode Blue Room Collection and the stemware is Waterford. The silver was passed down from my husband’s grandmother-1942 Watson Sterling Silver Windsor Rose.
The ecru matelasse tablerunner has scallopped edges-purchased from Home Goods, a few years ago. The centerpiece consists of a vintage handpainted blue Quelders Delft vase from Holland (from The Grand Bazaar) flanked by two beaded glass votives.
Several years ago, I purchased this handpainted platter from the artist in Ravello, Italy while vacationing with my dear friend on the Amalfi Coast. I thought the blue and gold in the platter would coordinate nicely with the rest of the table setting.
I picked up this pretty blue floral bowl (Tiffany & Co.) at Think Twice Consignment-it was a bargain!
This blue and white teapot, sugar bowl, and creamer set is Royal Patrician, Staffordshire, England, purchased at a shop in Cape Cod ten years ago.
Check out this video for a demonstration of the rainbow napkin fold!
LOVE this one!! …even before I saw the platter from the Amalfi trip 🙂 we definitely need to talk about wedding decor. xx
I love your tablescape and feel we have journeyed to Provence. The color of the linens are perfect for the table and the Spode plates are great with them. Thanks for sharing the video on the rainbow napkins. Happy Tea Party! Pam
Gorgeous table. Linens, dinnerware…just everything…wonderful!
I agree, the French table linens are just stunning. There is something that just melts my heart anytime I see that French blue and yellow combination. Your bowls are all so pretty and work so well on the table. Definitely a sunny and happy table!
Beautiful setting! I love the vibrant colors and your china is beautiful!
Have a wonderful weekend!
