Wedgwood Potpourri

This week for Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch I have set a breakfast table with Wedgwood's Potpourri pattern. My father-in-law recently moved into an independent living community and gave me (among many other beautiful things) these dishes I have admired for years. 


Today I've paired the Potpourri with my blue heart-shaped covered ramekins (found on clearance at the Le Creuset outlet in Destin last fall).  The blue-stemmed glasses are for juice, and I'm using dark blue placemats and blue-checked napkins, as well as my silver, Lunt's Belvedere.


Here's a close-up of the Potpourri pattern.  I love the shape of the plates, as well as the design.


Here's the host's view.  For a simple centerpiece, I placed pink and white alstroemeria in a mostly blue and white pitcher I blogged about last month for Table Top Tuesday at Marty's A Stroll Thru Life.  You can see the little floral design inside the coffee cup in this shot. 


Here's a better view of the sugar and creamer.


Here's one more view of the table, in which you can see the flowers a bit better.  I like the morning light in this photo.


Thanks for visiting my breakfast table!  Please also stop by Susan's Between Naps on the Porch to see some beautiful tablescapes.

  24. Tricia, You got an very beautiful china pattern. I think the creamy china with the soft blue and soft purple flowers and birds on it makes a lovely design. And the dark blue placemats really sets off the dishes in the best way. The pitcher is gorgeous to that and the Alstromeria catches the color of the dishes perfectly. Great tablescape.
    Greetings, Johanna
