A Special Tablescape & A Mikasa Giveaway!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010
Dear, Dear Readers;
I have something very special to share with you today!
(Please click on the photos to see a better view)

First I would like to show you this entire table. A special table. It is a table of celebration. A sweet table for two. A picnic table.....a living room picnic. Have you ever had a living room picnic?

This one calls for the *good* china.

Today's good china is Mikasa Briarcliffe (1971 - 1997). A beautiful bone china with platinum trim.

To make the table more playful, I passed on using the traditional matching cup and saucer and instead am using Mikasa Color Studio Black/Platinum Dots Mugs.

I made the table cover & reversible napkin from Rhythm & Blues by Red Rooster Fabrics (read more about my fabric choice).

Napkin rings are vintage silverplate by E.B. Rogers Silver Company.

Vintage silverware is Clinton by International/Rogers & Bros. 1919 (thank you to Marigene who identified this for me last time I posted about them).

And the star of the table....Mikasa's Avenue Vase. Isn't it gorgeous! Lead crystal and 12-inches tall, this vase is both classic and contemporary. Oh, and with those deep cuts, boy does it catch the light and SPARKLE!

My new friends at Mikasa thought you all might be interested in this gorgeous vase!
