Tablescape for Spring Formal Supper

Georgia Historical Plates
used with Johnson Brothers Blue Willow.
For more information on these plates visit Georgia plates .

This Georgia plate depicts the University of Georgia.
It is described as"Campus in the fifties". 
 Here, they mean 1850's!

The salad plate is from one of my favorite patterns, Rotunda, by Mikasa.

The dessert plate and sherbet bowl are the depression glass pattern,
  Block Optic, made by Anchor Hocking.

Tea pitcher, cups and saucers are Johnson Brothers Blue Willow.


Flatware is Golden Ribbon Edge by Gorham.
and Iced Tea Glasses are Laurin Gold also by Gorham.
Placemats, napkins, napkin rings,
candlesticks and vase are all older purchases or gifts.

I am so excited to be participating in my first
"Tablescape Thursday"!


  1. I am so excited that you started this blog, and I get to be your first follower. Welcome to the world of blogging. I warn you, though, that it's kind of like the song "Hotel California". You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave...

    Even though the title is Soccer Mom, I'll probably call it Dadgum Blog Writer in my head.


    I love the tablescapes and can't wait to be finished teaching (Today!) to be able to do more of them.

    It all looks just wonderful. I just saw some green plates similar to those. Now you make me want to go out and get some to put under my own green sherbets. Trying not to covet the Georgia plates, too.

    Hope you link up to Tablescape Tuesday at Between Naps on the Porch. Then, you can be a dadgum porch person, too.

  2. Hi christa,
    Welcome to blogland, nice to meet you hon!
    What a lovely table, I really like all your pretty blue and white ware dishes, it makes a very pretty table. I love those green sherbert glasses, and they add a nice spark of color with the blue and white as well. I am one of your newest followers.
    Blessings to you, Nellie

  3. Hi welcome to blogging and to Tablescape Thursday! That Georgia plate is to die for...I love blue and white transferware and your green depression glass is so beautiful. Joni

  4. You do live in one of the greatest spots on the globe! My daughter is a sophomore at UGA, and having WAY too much fun. My husband went to school there and really wants to move there some day. Who knows?

    I'm a fairly new blogger too, so we can figure this all out together! You are off to a great start with this welcoming table. Feel free to invite me over!

  5. Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! We are so glad to have you playing in the dishes with us, and I love yours! I have a collection of blue and white transferware souvenir plates of places in Florida so I am loving yours from Georgia! So neat!


    Sheila :-)

  6. Very very pretty!! I love the green sherbert glasses. They are gorgeous!

  7. Hi Christa!

    It's no secret at all. I am an avid Goodwill shopper. The secret to successful thrifting is going as often as possible because they put out merchandise ALL day long and the good stuff gets snatched up very quickly. I visit at least one location everyday as my schedule puts me in the general vicinity of several a day.

    I have gotten some great stuff at the Athens Goodwill. But I do have an advantage that I can visit multiple locations. You might try the Goodwill near Hamilton Mill if you ever come over to Atlanta. It is in a well to do area and they get good stuff!

    Happy hunting!


  8. Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! This is a lovely debut! I went to grad school at UGA, so was tickled to see that you live in Athens and featured the Georgia plates. Adding the green Depression glass was a great idea -- it adds a nice touch to the pretty blue and white.

  9. Christa,
    I am so glad that you have your very own blog now! Your tablescape is beautiful, but I wouldn't expect anything less from you. You are my inspiration. Thank you for sharing a part of you. I wish you great success and lots of fun with your new project. I will be following your blog very closely...and stealing your ideas...just kidding.

    Love Ya!

  10. I ♥♥♥ Blue Willow...beautiful table with my favorite color combo, blue and green!
