This china is a set our father bought while serving in Japan during the Korean conflict. Our father was unattached while in Japan, but all the other servicemen who had wives and sweethearts were buying china sets since they were so inexpensive so our father picked this china to take back to the aunt who raised him. When he married five years later, his aunt gifted it back to our parents. The pattern is very simple and features a delicate bamboo and bird design. The silver and white setting helped the design stand out. Reba borrowed sterling silver goblets from her mother-in-law to complement the silver pattern of the china.
The common elements among the three tables were the tablecloths, the flower arrangements, the silver chargers, the silverware, and the gift boxes.
The bride-to-be was delighted with the dessert which was a miniature wedding cake with a rose on top and their bride and grooms initials on the side. Reba ordered the miniature wedding cake tins and asked her favorite cake shop to bake the cakes. She has used these at the last two showers. The brides-to-be have been delighted with the desserts.
|CLOSE UP OF THE MINI CAKES. Reba has used the tins for quite a few bridal showers. The initials on the cakes to personalize them enough to make them special for each honoree.|
