At this table, I imagine couples on a train having dinner. Or at least a snack. Complete with chocolate. Of course.
Don’t you think mid-twentieth century dinner on a train was served on fine china with cups and saucers, dessert plates, crystal stemware, and true silverware?
The travel case set the theme as I gathered things brown and white from around the house.
Coffee will be served, for sure. (Or tea, if you prefer.)
Cream and sugar?
You’ll need something to wet your whistle.
These Decadent Mississippi Mud Cookies are irresistible. (You’re gonna love ’em!)
They serve cookies on the train because passengers constantly ask for sugar (on my imaginary train, at least). And, you knew I’d have some chocolate, right? Because this is My Self-Designated CHOCOLATE MONTH.
The china is Meadow Breeze by Syracuse – the set that PAM (Painter Artist Mom) is passing down to Spunky Daughter. You saw the cup and saucer in last week’s Vintage Tea Time Tablescape.
The silverware was PAM’s too. It matches the china.
A friend gave me this tea towel for Christmas, and I couldn’t wait to show you. Haha!
The women in this household agree – and even most of the men agree that it’s every guy’s dream, too!
One final thing you should know about this table.
There’s a surprise inside this travel case. Don’t you love surprises? I do, too.
Can you guess what it might be? Should I give you a hint? (It’s not filled with Mississippi Mud Cookies, although I’d love to have a load of those on a train trip! How about you?)
I’m sharing this table at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Join me! 🙂
