Tablescape-Thursday - Flieder / Lilac


Welcome for Tablescape Thursday with our hostess, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

[TT+use.jpg]


The lilac blooms and will delight us only for a short time. Because I have many lilac bushes in the yard, I wanted to use it for the table decoration of our Sunday Tea. And when I looked through my cabinets, what could fit, I found this incredible tablecloth with cream fond (Pic. 1). I actually almost never used it.

Der Flieder blüht und wird uns nur eine kurze Zeit erfreuen. Da ich im Garten viele Fliederbüsche habe, wollte ich gerne für unseren Sonntagstee einen Tisch damit dekorieren. Und als ich meine Schränke durchsah, was noch dazu passt, fiel mir diese unglaubliche Tischdecke mit cremefarbenem Grund in die Hände (Bild 1). Ich benutze sie eigentlich fast nie.

My mother has it embroidered in cross stitch. The pattern presentation was black and white and each cross was marked with a symbol for the color. The pattern is repeated four times, of course, mirrored accordingly. How many colors are the different flowers have, one can see well in the enlargement of this small violet (Pic. 2). Seven different colors only for such a little flower. The impression of the colors is terrific. Burgundy, purple and violet shades dominate and this fits nicely with the lilac.

Meine Mutter hat sie im Kreuzstich bestickt. Die Vorlage war schwarz-weiß und zum Auszählen, jedes Kreuz ist mit einem Symbol für die Farbe gekennzeichnet. Das Muster wiederholt sich vier Mal, natürlich entsprechend gespiegelt. Wieviele Farben diese einzelnen Blüten haben, kann man an der Vergrößerung dieses kleinen Veilchens gut sehen (Bild 2). Sieben verschiedene Farben alleine für ein so ein kleines Blümchen. Die Farbwirkung ist grandios. Weinrot, Purpur und Violett dominieren und das passt wunderbar zu dem Flieder.

I made a blueberry cream cheese cake, and the color fits very well to it. The china is Royal Albert (United Kingdom), the pattern is called "Lavender Rose". Since I have neither the matching tea pot nor the milk + sugar set, I use this silver plated set in Queen Anne-style, which I have bought once on ebay. (Pic. 3)

Ich hatte eine Heidelbeer-Käse-Sahne-Torte gemacht, auch die passt farblich ganz gut dazu. Das Porzellan ist von Royal Albert (Großbritannien), das Muster heißt "Lavender Rose". Da ich weder eine Teekanne noch das Milch + Zucker-Set dazu habe, benutze ich dazu ein versilbertes Set im Queen Anne-Stil, das ich einmal über ebay gekauft habe.

I have arranged the lilac with Oasis floral foam under the pie plate. The cake decoration is made from blueberries, lemon balm and three horned violet flowers. (Pic. 4)

Den Flieder habe ich mit Steckmoos unter der Tortenplatte arrangiert. Die Tortenverzierung ist aus Heidelbeeren, Zitronenmelisse und drei Hornveilchenblüten. (Bild 4)

Also on ebay I have come to this cutlery (Pic. 5). The manufacturer was Philip Stöhrle in Pforzheim. In the enlargement you can see the stylized and elegantly curved petals. It almost looks like Art Nouveau. Especially beautiful is the delicate cake server. If you consider that any opening had to be reworked by one! More informations about such flatware with rose handle you can get with the book "Rosen-Bestecke"

Ebenfalls über ebay bin ich zu diesem Besteck gekommen (Bild 5). Der Hersteller war Philipp Stöhrle in Pforzheim. In der Vergrößerung kann man die stilisierten und elegant geschwungenen Rosenblätter sehen. Es sieht fast wie Jugendstil aus. Besonders schön ist auch der filigrane Tortenheber. Wenn man bedenkt, dass jeder Durchbruch einzeln nachgearbeitet werden musste! Viele interessante Informationen zu diesen besonderen Bestecken mit Rosengriff findet man in meinem Buch "Rosen-Bestecke" auf www.rosen-bestecke.de.

Philip Stöhrle has stamped his silverware with this mark (Pic. 6).

  1. Vielen grusse Johanna!
    That is a lovely table. The cloth is divine, such intricate and beautiful needlework. My mother (Ursula, von Meiningen!) did wonderful work like that. I inherited some of her pieces when she died 3 years ago and I treasure them. We had those exact same forks and serving pieces - we used them at each tea party and birthday gathering. I always loved them, they are so delicate and the roses on them are really special. I will have to search for them the next time I visit my father.
    Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll come back soon. (BTW - I just reunited, via e-mail, with my German cousin in Coburg. We had lost touch for years. It was wonderful to find her, and now we send emails and pictures back and forth. I miss Deutschland!)

  18. What a beautiful treasure your tablecloth is! I love the lilacs, too. I can almost smell them. I think it is too hot and dry here for them - my grandmother had some years ago, but I have tried and can't get them to grow. Everything about your table is lovely.

  40. Hello Johanna, What a beautiful table. You are so blessed to have your mother’s cross-stitched tablecloth. I can't imagine how long it must have taken her to complete it, her work is lovely. I had never thought to display flowers under a desert or pie/cake the way you did. Lilacs are yet to bloom here; it is to cold in the east. It won't be long though. I'd love a piece of your pretty blueberry cheesecake, looks delicious. Thank you for visiting my Tablescape Thursday for my Italian Dinner. Your kind comment is greatly appreciated. I hope you have a wonderful evening/day!

    Ein Traum Deine Deko, die Torte(sieht übrigens sehr lecker aus) so schön einzurahmen, eine Idee die ich gerne aufgreifen werde. Das Highlight ist für mich die Tischdecke , welch' eine Geduld muss Deine Mutter dafür aufgebracht habe - bis ins kleinste Detail die Farben zu verarbeiten.

  47. Your tablecloth cross-stitched by your Mother is absolutely beautiful. You can see all the wonderful hand work and lovely colors. Your very tempting cheesecake does compliment the colors in the tablecloth. I really love your pattern Lavender Rose by Royal Albert china. I always enjoy your table and great descriptions of the settings and centerpiece. Pam!

  48. Your tablecloth is stunning, and the lilac is beautiful. I have to try to get one planted this year. You have a wonderful blog, thanks for sharing all your wonderful creativity with the rest of us. Loved the tea set and the silver, beautiful pattern.
