A couple of weeks ago, when I set the table for the 4th of July, I used some Johnson Brothers transferware named Strawberry Fair. These dishes came from my in laws. They used it at their summer river cottage. I've always loved it, and evidently some of you did too. In fact, I had a special request from a fellow blogger, Deanna at "Home Haven Ministry" who asked me to "pretty please" do a Strawberry Fair tablescape.....now who could possibly resist a special request tablescape? Not me! So....Deanna....this one's for you! If you have not met Deanna yet, please stop by to say hello.
Welcome to my strawberry table.
Obviously the star of this table is the strawberry.
I love vintage tablecloths and this strawberry print is the perfect compliment to Strawberry Fair dishes.
This white pitcher belonged to my grandmother. She used to fill it with flowers for her foyer.
A place for you.
As you can see -- I do have quite a few pieces. Not all are on this table -- not shown are a couple of platters and a vegetable bowl, I also have some soup bowls, but I'm down to only five now :( This is the luncheon plate and dinner plate.
We just thought square plates were a new design. Not so!
Even the backs are pretty.
I've used these red napkins with white edging that came from my dad in many tablescapes. These were always his favorite ones.
The flatware came from Target a few years back ....I wish they would bring these back in some more colors.
Bread plates under berry bowls filled with....strawberries.
A closer peek at this pretty pattern. It's one you really don't see all that often.
Tea cups are covered in strawberries inside and out.
I love the soft colors mixed with the bright berries.
Overview shots of flowers....
Thanks for joining my strawberry table this week and be sure to check out all the other pretty dishes and settings posted for your pleasure at Susan's "Between Naps on the Porch". Thanks Deanna....for your special request. It was fun to set the table with you in mind.
I haven't been able to do much visiting lately.....we're at VBS every night this week, but I'll try to catch up with all of you soon.
