Earth Day Tablescape

Earth Day is coming up - Sunday, April 22nd! In keeping with that theme the blogger Cuisine Kathleen is hosting a linky party called Let's Dish on Earth-themed Tablescapes.


Here is my contribution to the fun:


Must have knocked the napkin a little when photo shooting. Just pretend it is straight. 





Matching vintage embroidered napkins and placemats. The green in them rather matches my Bordallo Pinheiro lettuce dinner plates.










My old tea cosy, which you have seen before and makes another show supporting its floral Earthy-ness on this table.










Different centerpiece - vintage ironstone urn with pink lilies in it (that you can't see!)










I hot-glued flowers to thruft-store ceramic napkin rings.









Pretty white chocolate cookies in a leafy pattern star on this pretty leaf Majolica plate.

  10. What a great contribution to Earth Day, Michele. Love the Bordallo Pinheiro lettuce dinner plates. I so wish I had more pieces of Bordallo. I only have the lemon pitcher, I hope to add more in the future. Your vintage pieces are also perfect for the Earth Day occasion. I think you have it just right.

  19. Love the majolica and pink flowers....and your linens are just charming. Did you make those cookies? I need some for my luncheon on Saturday. Please let me know about them. They are just beautiful. Also I wish you lived around here too. You'd be first on my list to come to my soiree no matter what month you were born in. (smile) By the way when is your birthday?

  22. A lovely table setting Michele.
    I recognised the Bordallo plates.. the factory is a great place to visit. Its up in the north of Portugal.
    there are collectors who have some plates from the last century.
    your napkins are so sweet..they are hand sewn ..delicate and lovely
    Hope to see you over my way.
    nice post

  30. What a pretty table and the leaf plates couldn't be more perfect for Earth Day. I didn't get around to a table today as we were just recovering from Spring Break. Your cookies are too pretty too. I haven't seen those.

    Yes, Barbie now has elbows AND she even has wrists! Those moveable wrists kept giving me fits as I would take a shot and then notice her hands were in a wierd position. Yes, I don't think that is a bonafide Ken so we named him something else! Glad you enjoyed the Cabo Barbie post!
