Green Leaves Two Ways

Grab a cup of tea or a cocktail ..... this may take some time to get through!
We're talking image overload to showcase the same vintage California Hand Prints
tablecloth two different ways today. First with contemporary Fiesta and then with
vintage Harlequin Ironstone also made by the Homer Laughlin China Company.

I'm joining Marty's weekly party called Tabletop Tuesday over at A Stroll Through Life


Contemporary Fiesta dinnerware in Paprika, Lemongrass and Shamrock.
The lantern and napkin rings are from Pier 1, small cloches from Tuesday Morning,
decorative ceramic leaves from Michael's, napkins from Home Goods, acorn salt and
pepper from Ace Hardware.  The flatware is Cityscape and all the Jadite is vintage.

The Fiesta Disc Pitcher is vintage Amberstone, roses from my garden.

And the same vintage tablecloth set with vintage Harlequin Ironstone, with some other
vintage pieces mixed in. The tumblers are from Cost Plus, while the green glassware is
vintage Depression Glass. Green vintage Harlequin Ball Jug, vintage OvenServe floral
container, Rhythm salt and pepper, flatware is vintage Deauville, napkins from Home Goods,
napkin rings from Pier 1.

Vintage Pink Depression Glass plates.

The Hydrangeas are 'Endless Summer' from my garden.

Vintage California plates by Homer Laughlin.

The sterling butter dish was a wedding gift, the sterling gravy boat is a recent acquisition, the
crystal sugar jar was my mother-in-law's.

The little dessert cloches seen in the contemporary table,
shown here with dried hydrangeas from the garden.

Two of many ways this tablecloth can be showcased for Fall in California!

Thanks so much for stopping by again this week,
another tablescape for Fall will be coming up Wednesday afternoon.
