Setting the table for simple pleasures

Setting the table is one of my most enjoyed simple pleasures of life:

On a particular afternoon, I started setting the table for the company of my family — another simple pleasure:

I used my “Simple Pleasures” quilt to dress up the table:

Nothing too fancy, I just used my Spode Blue Italian, mixed in with a bit of Johnson Brothers Heritage White:

We were having Chinese-style stuffed buns. So I included the teapot for green tea at the table:

A great time was had by all! Thank you for stopping by – I hope you enjoy your Thursday – may your day be blessed with many simply pleasures!

  1. Who needs food ! Your table settings are a feast for the eyes!
    You know I love that Simple Pleasures quilt ~ I think it is my favorite of all the ones I have seen you make.
    Hope you have a “Simply” wonderful day!

  2. What a lovely quilt, beautiful quilt and elegant china. I adore your place setting. I too, very much enjoy setting an elegant table when company comes. Yours is lovely.

  3. Your table is gorgeous! The quilt is fantastic – the colors are so pretty! Your dishes look wonderful sitting on top of it! The little bunny dish holding the grapes is adorable! Oh, my goodness, your table is just the best!

  4. What a beautiful table! I am a big fan of blue and white and this all looks so pretty, so fresh…just right for Spring!
    I too love using quilts as table coverings.

    I just added my first tablescape Thursday! I cheated a bit by using photos I took from a recent flower show but next time I will add my own!

    Warmly,
    Sue

  5. Very pretty taable setting. I like your using the quilt on the table. Your Spode is beautiful~I have a few pieces of this and that but no more than any of one pattern to make a place setting for over six.

    Very simple but elegant and I am wondering what these Chinese buns are!
