In the late fall, Tower Pink by Spode makes its appearance at our house. A versatile pattern, it pairs well with either pink or red glassware and looks particularly stunning when set off by plain cream matelasse placemats.

We use it at Thanksgiving, paired with some antique red Turkey plates we picked up in a small shop on Bayview Avenue in Toronto.

It looks especially festive during the Holiday season, paired with some Christmas theme dessert plates produced by Williams Sonoma a number of years ago.

Our eating area in the kitchen looks magical with star lights from Ikea. The red goblets are also from Williams Sonoma.
