Tabletop Tuesday Part 1: Ring Around The Rosie

I'm joining Marty over at A Stroll Through Life for her Tabletop Tuesday party!
This is Part 1 of Ring Around The Rosie, be sure to jump to Part 2 linked at the end of this post.

Vintage tablecloth topped with four colors of Post86 Fiesta:
Shamrock, White, Tangerine and Chocolate. The glassware, green pitcher and little 
green bowl are all vintage. Napkins from Tuesday Morning, Pier 1 napkin rings, and flatware
from Home Goods.

The pansy ring is also vintage and was made by Goebel, better known as the
maker of Hummel figurines. A pansy ring (also known as an ivy ring) makes
the perfect centerpiece because it is not so tall as to impede conversation across
the table. Some rings are a solid circle, while others may incorporate various
pieces to allow for alternate configurations. My favorite rings also include
seperate ceramic butterflies, flowers, chicks or other seasonal pieces which
can be changed to fit the occasion.

The miniature roses are 'Yantai', 'Sweet Revenge' and 'Life Lines".

See the refreshed arrangement of the pansy ring in Part 2: Ring Around The Rosie.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This setting is so pretty, I immediately e-mailed it to a friend that loves orange! Also, must find one of those pansy rings, I've never seen them before-thanks!

  2. My word that table is incredible. There's that wonderful tablecloth, the glasses, the white coasters, the dishes, the flatare, that pitcher, and those roses are beautiful. And that vase/ring thingy is amazing. The silver on it looks great. I am just drooling over that table.

  3. Love this setting! The wonderful tablecloth is the perfect backdrop for those dishes. The roses are exquisite as roses should be. LOL
    A friend gave me a pansy ring as a gift a year or so ago. I'd never heard on one before then. ~ Sarah
