Easter Dishes

As promised, here are the pictures of my new dishes I purchased from a friend for Easter dinner. The dishes belonged to a Great Aunt of hers and I have been admiring them for several years. I am not sure why she finally agreed to sell them to me, but I am very thankful because they are BEAUTIFUL! I tried to get a good close-up so you can see the incredible detail, and the gold leaf trim along the scalloped edges.

I picked them up the week of Easter and searched for just the right shade of blue for the napkins, but nobody in the area carried the napkin variety I needed and I didn't have time to shop in Shreveport, so I did the tablescape as creative as I could and tried to pull everything together. I found the right shade of blue ribbon and ran a piece down the middle of the table and sat the serving pieces on it. For the napkins, I found some really pretty, blue sheer, wire-edged ribbon and tied pieces around each ivory colored napkin, and put the napkins in the water goblets. To finish it off I tied a bit of it around the candlesticks.
Our Easter dinner was lovely as we spent it with family and friends...
