MacKenzie -Childs Spring Tablescape

Well, I finally have some Mackenzie-Child's dishware.
When I saw the Butterfly Garden dishware on sale, I knew it was time to buy.
I started with the chargers and the salad plates,

The cute bunny was given to my by my sweet friend, Karen.
Turquoise chargers from Zgallerie years ago.  The blue compotes are from Walmart. The napkin rings were gifted to me by my good friend, Liz from Infuse With Liz.
A closer look at my birthday gift from my husband....Mackenzie-Childs flatware. A pretty plate stack with the Butterfly Garden charger plates, Courtly check dinner plate and MKC Butterfly salad plate.
Stay tuned for another Easter table setting. 
*An update on my Dad, I drove him and my Mom to emergency yesterday, because he was having a difficult time breathing. They admitted him again. They found out he was retaining fluid again.  They put in a tube for draining and left it in.  His bladder was also backed up, so they put in a catheter.  We need to know why his lungs are filling up. Thank you for your prayers and healing thoughts.
This picture is grainy.  My brother took this photo while he was visiting.

  1. I absolutely LOVE that set, Linda. I just adore her pieces but don't own a single one-so I will enjoy yours vicariously. Lucky girl!!

    I am so sorry to hear that your dad is having medical issues. It is so hard to watch our aging parents decline and see them failing. My heart aches for them and you. Blessings- xo Diana

    ps. I should have put your dad on the prayer blog post I did yesterday- I am sorry I forgot to ask you- it completely slipped my mind.

  2. Hi Linda, Love your MC tablescape. Of course I always love B&W checks and incorporate them at home and in my paintings too. Your table is so inviting.
    I'm so sorry your dad is having health issues. I understand this time with parents too well having gone through this with both my mom and dad. Take care of yourself too and my prayers will be with your dad and you all. Hugs

  3. Lovely and elegant. Wishing you and yours a Blessed Holy Week and a Joyous Easter.

  7. Linda, your hubby did good :-) You know how much I love all your MCK pieces. Sweet pic of your mom and dad.

  8. Love the new MC dishes you got and of course the flatware too! I have admired the butterfly pattern too. That courtly check pattern makes such a good accent. I'm glad you can use the napkin rings!
    Sorry your dad is having all these problems. I pray for his comfort as he transitions during this time and for you, your mom and brothers.

  10. What a lovely table setting. I love McKenzie Childs. And, the turquoise is beautiful! So sorry about your Dad, it's really tough to see our parents's health failing. Blessings to you!

  11. I hope your dad is feeling much better soon. I love the butterfly garden plates, I know you will get a lot of use out of these beauties.

  12. Oh I just love the blue color and the setting is beautiful! Butterflies are one of my favorites... I will continue to keep your dad in my prayers and I hope he gets some relief soon!


  13. OH I love this!! Sooo pretty! It reminds me of Alice and Wonderland at a quick glance. It all goes so well together. I love black and white with turquoise.

  14. I love your new MC dishes, Linda, and the darling bunny centerpiece from your friend. Prayers are with your dad.

  15. Hi, Linda! I'm really to hear about your parents' health issues. It sounds like you're on top of it, and it's good that you are able to monitor the status.

    I've not done a lot of commentary on posts over the last little while, but I wanted to let you know how this tablescape has inspired me. Our kitchen is decorated with a mix of buffalo checks and toile. Lightening it up a bit with color and "movement" as you have done here is great inspiration!

    Have a Happy Easter!

  16. Your table is very pretty (they had lots of Butterfly at the warehouse sale, wish I knew you were collecting it as it was marked down so low!) Pretty compotes and they look so pretty with the dishes! I am also using MC dishes for easter! Hope your dad feels well soon!

  17. Oh so beautiful, Linda, all of it. I hope your dad gets well soon....Christine
