Petite Fleur Tablescape

I have had this Villeroy & Bach Petite Fleur china for many years. I was attracted to the teapot. Did you ever buy a set of china because of the teapot? I also love the little bowl and the cup and saucer. And the flowers are sweet too.






I had used white table cloths with it in the past but found the tablescape to be boring! It was so boring that I haven't used it much for that reason because I couldn't get excited about it. So since I have you helping me with my tablescapes, I decided to try different colors with it this summer so maybe I can bring new life to it and start to enjoy using it! Because of the rim color, I tried this maroon/red/burgandy color tablecloth.


Not crazy about it. I felt this was too much red and stark so it was returned to the store. Then I tried green and didn't like that enough to even take a picture of it. I don't have blue in my house and wouldn't try that. So my last resort was the gold...



I'm good with the gold. The gold feels soothing and right to me.


I can live with this! And I am excited about it too!


For the centerpiece, I put three little flower arrangements I had around the house together. The yellow flower picks up on the little flowers in the china.




I love it when I can use things around the house and come up with something new and exciting. All I bought here was a new tablecloth which was on sale and the ivory napkins I bought for my beach tablescape last week.

  11. I love your teapot and can see why you had to get the dishes to go with it! I love tea pots but I don't drink tea or coffee at all so I have a hard time justifying the purchase! the table came out beautiful with the lighter tablecloth. Looks Great!

  14. Isn't it amazing how color speaks to each of us individually? I love these dishes--always have--and when I saw them with the burgundy I thought, "That's it; perfect!" and yet you didn't like it! But I do like the gold too. Isn't it fun to "play house"?? Happy 4th, Patty! ~Zuni

  16. Hi Patty, so happy to have you share with Share Your Cup. I am looking forward to getting to know you. Your china is beautiful and your entire tablescape is perfect for summer. I love how the yellow flowers make the yellow in the china pop. I did like the burgundy cloth, but I love bright pops of color. The gold gives the tablescape a much more soothing appearance. You have to go with what fits you.
    Hugs,
    Jann
