The pear pot with the chubby bird worked perfectly with the colors on the china!
And a third flower shop contributed these gorgeous succulents — are you beginning to see why I was focused on the flowers and not the dishes???
Three small bouquets of peonies and hydrangeas:
Three tables were done in classic BLUE and WHITE! ALL were gorgeous.
The first was set with Juliska china, on a table in the beautiful front parlor of the mansion.
Did you see the pussy willow trellis in the centerpiece? Love it.
Little bits of pale yellow and purple accented this beautiful table.
I could take this home too.
Another blue and white was being closely watched by one of the guard ladies. I really really really wanted to fix this table up, straighten the flatware and center the glasses properly, but she wouldn’t have any of that!
She picked it up to show me that it was Royal Copenhagen. I checked it out online when I came home (see it here!!) and now I’m really glad I didn’t touch it.
Maybe this incredibly garish table would be better without so much putrid pink.
And you know I love pink.
One table that was so silly it was actually FUN and very popular was this
Kentucky Derby luncheon setting.
Red roses for the winner of the Derby, horse head napkin rings and horses prancing on the table left no doubt as to the theme here.
There’s even a flask to help drown your sorrows or celebrate your winnings!
But the most special part of this entire event was
the table in the dining room.
Members of the League set the table with heirloom china from their families, with a description of the pieces and a photograph and short bio of their beloved moms, grandmothers or aunts.
Well, what do you think?
Which table do you like best?
What do you think of the putrid pink one? Am I way off?
Which one would you like to take home?
And the flowers!!! Oh my my my. Did you love one?
