A Table Full of Veggies!

What a wonderful time of year for the tabletop! An abundance of fresh vegetables is pouring in from the garden and the farm stand. This vintage victory garden tablecloth sets a perfect stage for enjoying summer's bounty!

These cloths were popular during the World War II years to promote and celebrate home gardening for the war effort. I think this cloth can still inspire a green thumb and whet your appetite for a fresh-picked feast.

Anthropomorphic veggie salt and peppershakers from the 50's and 60's make sure that you are cleaning your plate...

Your plates are post-86 Fiesta dinnerware in cinnabar and vintage Riviera pieces in green, red, ivory and yellow.

Your napkin is a modern vegetable print paired with a Crate and Barrel napkin ring that's reminiscent of Bakelite.

Your glassware is vintage Anchor Hocking Rainbow.

Bakelite flatware completes the table.

A lid-less Riviera syrup pitcher serves as a creamer.

I hope you're ready to eat your veggies!


  1. Most awesome indeed! I think I'll hit the farmer's market tomorrow! That tablecloth is TDF! As is your dish pairings!

  2. Love it all, but especially all the S&P's...

  3. Such a fun table! I love that tablecloth and the napkins match perfectly!

  4. What a fun table!! We love the salt and pepper shakers too.
