I’m at the table with Yorktowne, a classic stoneware pattern introduced in 1967 and inspired by original crocks and jugs from The Pfaltzgraff Company.
For an updated look for this classic pattern, I paired it with some fresh details at the table, including a jute runner, galvanized server and silver chargers for a clean, modern feeling.
A galvanized 3-tier serving stand serves as a centerpiece, offering berries, oranges, granola and mini muffins for an easy self-serve breakfast or brunch.
And Le bon lait or good milk is in a carafe
and ready to serve for petit déjeuner.
I like to play with my dishes setting the table a couple of ways, first with napkins tucked in mugs and then in pewter napkin rings. Blue and white napkins have a fresh cottage feel and are reversible, from floral to a ticking stripe.
Octagonal silver chargers help lend a modern feel, while fresh oranges and Paperwhite blooms add a pop of cheery color and delicious fragrance to help chase away the winter blues.
A blue hand-applied floral motif adds dimension to the
smooth glaze, reminiscent of early salt-glaze techniques.
And stemless wine glasses are etched with the
same floral motif, also convenient for milk or juice.
A platter is a convenient size to
offer an assortment of yogurt.
Help yourself to yogurt, fruit and granola. . .
Or make a breakfast parfait layering blueberry muffins, lemon yogurt and blueberries. Add some granola for texture and crunch.
