Cheerful Spring Table Setting

I recently hosted my mothers card club for a light lunch and a game of canasta. I wanted a cheerful table. And as you all know I have hundreds of vintage tablecloths, but surprisingly it wasn't hard to choose which one to use. We've had a long dark winter and no spring as of yet, so I just had to pick this gorgeous vintage Wilendur tablecloth and napkins. It just sings spring with the daffodils and hyacinths!

I severed chicken salad on croissants. I wish I could take credit for their deliciousness, but my mom makes THE BEST chicken salad and Sam's Club makes a pretty great croissant!

My depression glass dishes are a reproduction of the Madrid pattern. A gift to me from my Grandmother and Great Aunt. The were wonderful birthday and Christmas presents! They may not be actual depression glass, but they are officially vintage now! I received them well before meeting my husband.

I used my Great Aunt's silverware. They are a bit art deco and go well with the Madrid pattern.

During a recent treasure hunt I found these sweet vintage silver plated serving fork and spoon. They were made by Rogers Bros - in what else? The Daffodil pattern!

I adore how they go with my Wilendur tablecloth. I just love the little extra, don't you?
