The inspiration for this table came from the March-April issue of Southern Lady magazine. I had never bought that magazine before, but after browsing through it in the store, I discovered that it included a lot of things that interest me. Who knew I was a Southern lady? I mean, I AM Southern -- an Arkansas native who has lived in four other southern states -- and most of the time I TRY to act like a lady, but my image of myself doesn't exactly match the real Southern ladies I know.
ANYWAY. The magazine had a feature titled, "A New Look for Old China." As I read further, I realized that MY wedding china -- selected in 1972 -- is considered old. All of the featured tablesettings paired patterns from the 60s, 70s, and even 80s (weren't they just a couple of years ago?) with modern elements to update them. Here's the photo that caught my eye, as it most closely resembles my Lenox pattern.
I will be linking to Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish and Between Naps on the Porch, so be sure to stop by to see many pretty tablescapes!
