This set of pastel champagne flutes is the perfect excuse to make mimosas on Mother’s Day, don’t you think? I found these on my recent trip to Cape May at the Antiques Emporium.
The seafoam green tablecloth is Ralph Lauren (HomeGoods). The placemats and napkins are Lenox “Butterfuly Meadow” (Macy’s).
The dinner plates are Bernardaud Limoges “Les Deux Roses pattern” (Summit Antiques Center). The pattern features “The Two Roses” at the center with lavendar ribbon, roses on the rim, pink scrolls and gold trim. This pattern was active beginning in 1968 but later discontinued. The silver was a gift from my husband’s grandmother-it’s Wallace Windsor Rose (1942).
The centerpiece is a Waterford crystal vase and candlesticks. The pink and purple plaid tapers are made by Del Mar (from Cachet). I found the matching Limoges footed plate and compote on a visit to Marché aux Puces St-Ouen de Clignancourt, Paris’s most famous flea market at the northern fringe of the city. These vintage pieces have two marks – green “JPL France” mark and “J Pouyat Limoges” mark inside a green wreath. These marks were used by the Jean Pouyat company between 1906 and 1932.
