Wedgwood Potpourri Redux

For this week's contribution to Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch, I decided to set another table with the Wedgwood Potpourri dishes recently passed along to me by my father-in-law.  In May, I posted a table highlighting this pattern with blue placemats, napkins, and other elements, so this time I decided to try it with deep red instead.

I really love the cream soup bowls, with the floral design inside.


I also like the shape of the plates against the deep red placemat. I'm using my silver, Lunt Belvedere, along with soup spoons from the silverplate my inlaws passed along to us a few years ago.  


Here's a view of the dinner plate by itself.  Fruit, flowers, birds, butterflies -- this pattern has them all!


The Georgian-Ruby water glasses have been featured in several previous tablescapes, and while I wasn't sure they were quite the right color for this china pattern, I think they work.


Here's a view of the whole table.  I would have preferred different flowers, but not enough to make a trip to HEB for them!  I decided the pink alstroemeria highlighted the lighter reds in the china pattern nicely.  Note the two kitties enjoying the late afternoon sunshine -- one on the floor to the right and one in the seat of the chair on the left.  They were most put out with me for trotting back and forth while they tried to nap.


My mother-in-law collected many wonderful pieces in the Potpourri pattern, and I've included a few on this table.  Here are closer views of the sugar and creamer, salt and pepper, and a vegetable bowl.


Here's one more view of the whole table, with the late afternoon shadows.


Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you will leave a comment before you leave to visit all the wonderful tablescapes at Between Naps on the Porch!

  14. I absolutely love it with the reds, especially the ruby red goblets! I can see adding a red, white and blue centerpiece and some flags for the Fourth of July and adding some greenery with cranberries and a few shiny blue ornaments tossed in as a centerpiece for Christmas. Love the placemats against the dishes.

  25. Thanks for stopping by my post. I appreciate that you like the details. When I explore a tablescape, I always wish that I could actually pick up all the pieces and turn them over to see the maker's mark. With antiques, I always wonder about the journey that they've made...the 'roads traveled' so many years ago. Cherry Kay
