We started with bright green chargers my daughter found at Crate and Barrel. The rippled chargers echo the plates' scalloped edges and bring out the green in the pattern.
The Gorham Chantilly silver was also passed down from the same grandparents. They had an extensive collection, because they frequently hosted dinner parties for their university colleagues and friends, so the silver was divided between my daughter and my son. I contributed the pink napkins, bought on clearance at Macy's recently.
Here's a closeup of the delicate china pattern. My in-laws collected both American and French versions, which differ slightly, but both include the gold rim. I believe the French-made pattern has a cream-colored rim.
And one of the silver pattern...
The crystal also came from her grandparents, but is of more recent vintage.
Here's an attempt at a bird's eye view. The silver metal vases and crystal candlesticks are my daughter's.
Pretty pink petals!
Here's a look at the whole table. The bright chargers, simple flowers, and the bare table lend a modern feel to this pretty vintage china.
