Tablescape Thursday

Yum


This tablescape was done with my wedding china, crystal and silver. The bride in the picture is me!



Bob and I were married in 1977. The year before we married, my Grandmother Holt passed away. She left me her wedding china which is what Bob and I decided we would use for our wedding china. My grandfather purchased this china when he was stationed in England during WWII. It is Elegance by Sheffield. He would buy pieces and then send it to my grandmother.



Our silver is Cherbrough by Oneida. It is actually stainless which I love. Bob's mom bought us the silver chest we store it in for a shower gift.



The glassware was purchased in Chicago. We actually found it on the back of a box of detergent! The glass is etched with an Old English "S". Even though it is just plain glassware, it has lasted 32 years! It is all about taking care of your stuff!



Don't you love the little nut cups? They have a little slot in the back for a name tag. I purchased them while attending my first year of college (also my first year as a wife!). I thought they were so charming!
