It's been almost two months since I posted a tablescape with Susan from Between Naps on the Porch. We moved; most of my stuff is unpacked; I can actually see the floor and find my glass and have time to think! I missed doing these with you. This week's table is an experiment combining pink and blue depression glass. I enjoy trying different combinations since many of you have only a few pieces. It's more fun to use several patterns. Here we go with Sharon Cabbage Rose in pink and our trusty Moderntone in cobalt blue. What do you think? I showed Moderntone with green Georgian Lovebirds here and with other blue depression glass patterns here. It's a fun pattern that plays nicely with others. Here's another view, this time with the larger Sharon serving bowls behind the simple blue place setting. One problem I had making this table is the limited number of Sharon and Moderntone pieces we have. I use glass from our store inventory and these two popular patterns have sold well! I figure that puts me in the same position many of you have, where you have just a few pieces and need to use them to best effect. I hope that you get good ideas from my tables. This vintage tablecloth came from an antique mall. It's white with blue, a little green and some pink. It does a good job blending the different colors. I enjoy nice cheerful vintage cloths all full of flowers and fruit but they don't work well when you want to photograph the result! This more refined cloth does a super job and is the style you might want to consider with your vintage glass. One last picture, this time showing that glorious blue glass. Did you know blue is the perennial favorite color and the overwhelming favorite for men? Moderntone blue sure catches the eye, even if blue isn't your favorite. It helps contrast the soft pink Sharon in this combination. We have Sharon Cabbage Rose in our store here and Moderntone cobalt blue depression glass here. My thanks to Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday.
