Antique Glass Club Spring Luncheon, 2018, Part I

Every year in early May, the Antique Glass Club holds their annual Spring Luncheons. Members collaborate or set a table of their own. I always look forward to the kind invitation from my sweet friend Linda. For your pleasure, I try to arrive a bit early to capture as many tables as possible to share with you, my blog world friends. I don't have a guide book to give me the names of the players on each table, but I hope that you will be pleased with pictures. I'll fill in details as I am able. I'll also share just a few tables each week, and I'll spread my journey out over the next number of weeks. 

This striking table featured MacKenzie Childs Courtly Check appointments, and...

...lovely English transferware china.


A circus theme was cleverly played out with Victorian cut-outs and an animal train caravan created with Cracker Jack boxes. The amazing centerpiece speaks for itself.


Depression glass in a kelly green shone brightly against the yellow linen cloth. The floral centerpiece perfectly picked up the colors...


 ...in the hand painted stoneware dinner plates. I should know the name of the dinner plates, but their name eludes me. Anyone able to share?


Very elegant.


Classic white china with gold rim.


And a gorgeous silver tea pot set amidst Magnolia leaves and white roses.  This table reminded me that I need to pull out my Waterford Posey vases. They were certainly put to good use here. I also like to place a few flowers in each one and set it at the top of each place setting.The result is a great impact from a small number of flowers.

 This yummy tablecloth had me charging across the room (in a lady-like fashion, of course).


A fan was caught in each napkin...a party favor, I'm guessing.

 A lovely transferware dinner plate in pink and red was again unknown to me. I love the scalloped edge.

Enough for this week. Remember that the Entertaining Women 8th Blogiversary Give Away is open until the week of July 7. Each comment on this post or on any post from my archives equals one entry in the drawing.

This week I'll be joining:

Tablescape Thursday with Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch

The Scoop with Suzy @ Worthing Court
