Embossed Creamware Tea Sets May 23, 2011

Continuing my love of Creamware...Embossed Tea Sets!

Oh! Be Still my heart. You already know how much I love tea and tea sets.

But...Embossed Creamy, Dreamy, Curvy tea sets. How Delightful!

The saucer below is so pretty...I fell for it at first sight.

All set up for Tea!

This one is my very favorite.

Just look at the detail in the beautiful pattern.

All the wonderful little scrolls and dots and raised leaves and flowers.

Tea time day dreams...oh! the tablescapes.

Dream...Dream on.

Embossed Dinnerware

I am in love with layered embossed dinnerware. Now I just need a money tree to get it and

the storage space to hold it all. There I go dreaming again...

What is it about the creamy white or ivory color of embossed dinnerware that I am attracted to?

I just swooned over this Turkey platter. It would make any holiday table look so feastive.

Can't you just see it all piled high with moist turkey?

I just can't explain it...I just really love embossed, curvy, creamy dinnerware right now.

Can you name some of the dinnerware sets?

Cinco de Mayo Tablescape May 2011

I set this table for "Cinco de Mayo" May of 2004 I believe.

Since I have been so busy I thought I'd post it today on "Cinco de Mayo" day.We had Taco Salad with homemade Tortilla Bowls, and Fresh Homemade Strawberry Lemonade. Yum! sounds good about now.

I used a classic white plate on top of woven straw chargers,
with a different color salad plate for each placesetting.

The napkin rings are homemade from TP rolls that are wrapped with wide enough ribbon to cover TB roll. I then printed image from Print Master cut out image and glued
it on top of the TP roll. Very easy, quick and inexpensive (cheap). :)

The runner is actually a bed pillow cover my grandmother crocheted, using the scrap pieces of yarn she had. I thought it fit the theme great.

The sombero I got at the dollar tree. I just love that store.

It's always fun to celebrate Holiday with the family.

They never know what I might come up with.
