Anthro tablecloth, estate sale finds and my Grandmother's vintage china

One of my favorite things to do is putting together a table setting for a brunch or dinner. In our house, we celebrate several birthdays during the month of August. Yes, there's a family full of Leos! This year, I hosted a birthday brunch at our house which gave me the opportunity to dust off my Grandmother's vintage china from the 1930s.

I bought this beautiful tablecloth from Anthropologie several years ago. It's one of my favorite prized possessions. It looks vintage with the lovely blue/green old fashioned floral pattern. It also has the cutest pompom trim which is not shown.

My Grandmother's china (Homer Lauglin Virgina Rose Pattern) which she rarely used. It is in perfect condition with no cracks or crazing. Another one of my cherished possessions!

Paper roses that I made a few months ago. I initially had this idea that I was going to sell them on Etsy...a lot of my creative business ideas never get implemented! I arrranged these flowers in an old tarnished brass pitcher along with a vintage crochet doily that I found at an estate sale.

Another successful table setting. Even if the food isn't that great, I always get rave reviews on the table setting!
