Set the Table - Puddle Ducks

https://fairmeadowplace.blogspot.ca


I was cleaning out various areas of the house recently and came across these ceramic ducks.

I had almost forgotten about them.  They were given to me many years ago by a favourite sister-in-law.

I was struck by how much they resembled these duck salad plates.

The plates are meant to be used in the fall, I think.  I thought they might fly for spring too.

Since it is Spring, the ducks should have nests to sit upon.

Each nest is made from a twig wreath with fern leaves and spring-like picks added.

They remind me of Beatrix Potter Puddle Ducks.

This little duck is tending her nest on top of a wooden pedestal.

I can't decide if they are ducks or geese on the plates.  I think they could be either and they look a lot like the ceramic ducks.

The plate stack starts with a twig nest on top of a wood charger.

The nest is topped with a luncheon plate from Cambria in Celedon from Pottery Barn.

The salad plates can be found HERE.  They are on clearance now.

Crystal goblets are Waterford and the silver flatware is a vintage Community Plate named Evening Star.

The napkins are by Lenox.

  1. Your plates and geese are perfect for spring. I think more than fall. Either way, they are enchanting and so is this setting!

  3. This tablescape is fascinating. I have never seen anything quite like it. So fresh and different using the geese. The Canadian goose is a national symbol so this type of tablescape will be a showstopper for Canada day.

  4. I think those are geese on the plates, rather than ducks, but you can’t rely on me, I am no fowl expert. Still, I have to say that I love those plates, and your centerpiece is just perfect. I think my mother would have gotten a kick out of this table because she seemed to have a thing for geese. Lovely! Great post.

    1. Thank you, Pattie. You may be right about them being geese. I thought they might be as well. I am glad you could stop by.

  6. So, so cute. I have one of the ceramic ducks. The pottery is chipping away around his face. I should fix it up and use it again. What goes around comes around. That is for sure. Thanks for linking to Keep In Touch.

    1. I used to see these ducks a number of years ago, Katie. I am guilty of not purging enough, but glad I still have them. Thanks for visiting.
