Last week for Tablescape Thursday I set my mother's dining table with her Castleton Ma Lin
china, and this week I'm showing the same table, but set with her other Castleton pattern, Mayfair.
As you can see, it features yellow roses with gray and rust leaves and stems -- an unusual color combination. In the fall, rust-colored linens would be pretty with this pattern, but I think the bare table sets it off nicely, too. The Fostoria Navarre crystal and Reed and Barton French Renaissance silver were shown in last week's post.
Here's a closer look at the pattern and gold rim.
I love the pretty teacup!
Here's one more look at Mama's stunning crystal.

I love yellow and I love this table! Your mother's dishes are so unique and lovely. That tea cup has the sweetest shape!ReplyDelete
Your mom's etched crystal just makes me swoon. And putting that pretty yellow napkin in it calls attention to the design.
Beautifully put together table.
Hi Tricia, I think those are some of the prettiest dishes ever...and I sell dishes for a living! Your stemware is gorgeous too. I'm really crazy about the whole tablescape! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Wow, the china is gorgeous...yellow with gray, don't think I have seen that combination before. The crystal is stunning.ReplyDelete
Wow! I love both sets of china and the sweet story from last week. The Fostoria stemware is so beautiful. I truly enjoyed both lovely tablescapes.ReplyDelete
The dishes are really, really pretty. So different! And ya just can't beat fostoria's etched chrystal. Thanks for the beautiful post.ReplyDelete
I came over to thank you for your sweet comment, but have to tell you I'm drooling over your mama's crystal. i love this table. And your blog title cracks me up- there is NOTHING dull about the life you describe! :)ReplyDelete
How pretty this is -- I love your yellow roses combined with your pretty daffodils. They do look perfect on your bare table.ReplyDelete
Another winner, Tricia! The flowers and candles are lovely, too.ReplyDelete
I love this beautiful china. Your stemware is so elegant too. It all goes great!!ReplyDelete
I love the Fostoria! I also love your china with the yellow roses. A table set with these couldn't go wrong.:)ReplyDelete
Tricia-I love old china patterns and this one is beautiful, especially with the daffodils! Tell your daughter congrats on inheriting the Rosalinde. I picked it out as a bride and have never once regretted it. I think it is timeless and classic! Your crystal is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Your mother's crystal is fosteria, correct? Very similar pattern to the crystal sherberts you comment on at my blog. Mine are nearly 70 years old; my mother got them at the time of her wedding from her mother's sunday school class of girlfriends. I just love them and enjoy using them, as apparently you do also! Your table is bright and cheery!ReplyDelete
Oh, this is really stunning. I love the yellow and grey china and the stemware too. Looks very festive.ReplyDelete
First of all, I love your blog name. I have come to realize, over my brief blogging career, how funny people are. The yellow is just so pretty and, to me, unexpected in china. I also love the beautiful, delicate china. Cheers! JoniReplyDelete
I love your dishes - it's a vintage look of a new trend (the yellow and grey, that is). Lovely!ReplyDelete
I love the pattern! If it's possible, I think it's even more beautiful on the teacup and saucer.ReplyDelete
What a lovely table, and it does show off your dinnerware nicely on the bare table. I love love love your Mom's crystal glasses. The truly are stunning! Also like your dinnerware in your posts back with all the florals, they are beautiful too.ReplyDelete
I think you should call your life (blog)the Blessed and Beautiful!! Cause that is what it really is!!
Not many people can say that about their lives.
I have to say I can about the hubby and children, and my childhood was good in many ways,
stressful in others, my parents were divorced so that makes for many many complications in life,
but it could have been worse for sure!
Thanks for sharing your pics.
Beautiful china! Really really pretty. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such a nice comment :)ReplyDelete
Very beautiful! I love the softness of the yellow and your daffodil arrangement is the perfect combination.ReplyDelete
Very pretty table! I love the yellows- so unique! Love the yellow candlesticks too! Thanks for visiting my Tablescape! ~Nana~ReplyDelete

Such BEAUTIFUL china and the table is set so well. I love the silverware as well. Oh my!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for visiting and commenting on my blog today! :)
I love the crystal. I know you said Fostoria, but they remind me of Cambridge. Regardless, they are lovely.ReplyDelete
Am drooling...drooling with the stemware and ohh... everything, every inch. Lovely.ReplyDelete

What a beautiful table! I love the pattern and the daffodils are a perfect match. (I have those same candlesticks.)ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
What beautiful dishes! I love them :)ReplyDelete
How lovely! The yellow is so pretty! Thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
Love this table, that yellow rose pattern is outstanding. I also love the great contrast on your pretty wood table. Did I mention your stemware? Gorgeous.
I am partial to Fosteria crystal! I have my mother's Fosteria, Meadow Rose, which is very similar to Navarre. Your double candleholders are so pretty. I only have one so it is harder to incorporate in a centerpiece.
Lovely table in every way.
This is just beautiful. So serene and elegant. I love the yellow flowered china. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, LiaReplyDelete
This is beautiful china...and a pattern I have never seen.ReplyDelete
The crystal is lovely, too.
Jane (Artfully graced)
Your china is just beautiful and I agree with you those teacups are amzing. What an elegant setting.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.
Sweet greetings from Frog Hollow Farm Tricia. Your table looks beautiful and that stemware is just lovely! So glad that you tried the Daffo-linis and enjoyed them - we've been working on perfecting them a bit. I really think I prefer Proseco all on it's own or with some peaches or strawberries, but we did finish several bottles of Proseco on Easter making the Daffo-linis so I guess they are refreshing!! I hope that you are able to visit my blog again soon! Ciao, bella!ReplyDelete
I love, love, love the crystal! Beautiful table!ReplyDelete
