Switch 3

Again this week I'm presenting a table we set at my daughter's house on a recent visit, this time using her everyday china.  When she married ten years ago, my daughter chose Switch 3, one of Villeroy and Boch's prettiest patterns, in my opinion.  Each piece has a different design, but they all coordinate beautifully.  We have had fun adding some of the extra pieces to those she received as wedding gifts. 


The placesetting includes placemats and napkins made to match this pattern.  I especially love the salad plate design!  The silver is the Gorham Chantilly that belonged to my in-laws.


Here's a really close look at the pattern!



Villeroy and Boch made dozens of items to go with this pretty pattern.  Here's a candleholder...


And here's the large casserole dish.  Love the checked border!


My daughter kindly climbed on a chair to get this bird's eye view for me.  If you visited last week, you'll recognize the same flowers on this table.  Notice anything else?  After I uploaded the photo I saw that the placemat in the top left is different from the others!  I asked my daughter about it, and she said the placemats are reversible! 


Here's another view of the whole table that also gives a better look at the square baking dish.  I think this Villeroy and Boch pattern sets a pretty, cheerful table!


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

  7. I have always loved patterns by Villeroy and Boch. They are just so detailed and always beautiful. Hers is no exception! I'm so glad you gave that close up. I LOVE her pattern and the way it looks with all the "stuff" with it! They sure have great options today, huh?

    Loved it and didn't even notice the reversible pattern until you pointed it out.

  24. I've got to say, I really enjoy your blog title, but I am sure you are anything but dull! lol

    Thanks for the comment. They really do have gorgeous dining sets. I'm not in the market for a table, but if you are, that's a good place to go. I am going to get a product (not anything that big!) for talking about CSN, but even if I weren't I'd recommend that people visit their sites as they really have some awesome stuff.

    The Villeroy and Bosch looks beautiful on your daughter's table! How nice for her to have this set.
