At the Oscars and other award ceremonies, leading actresses now regularly step out in vintage Valentino and Dior. In fashion magazines, the latest designer look is often set off with accessories from the 1930s-60s. In a radical departure from modernism, vintage fashion has even hit today’s table. The newest look for fine dinnerware is not white and minimalist. Giving a nod to our mother’s and grandmother’s generation, the newest look in china is old.
So, if you are planning a Tea, Luncheon, Brunch or Dinner this Mother’s Day I encourage you to dress your table with some vintage dinnerware, I guarantee that it will be a great conversation starter. I would love to be sitting around either one of these tables, taken from Country Living magazine to ask a ton of questions about the tableware. How old is this China? How did you obtain it? Who's the Designer? What made you fall in love with it? ect, ect, ect. One of the greatest joys of setting your table with your vintage china is that you will using items that were loved from generation to generation.
