Wallace "Baroque" cake stand

I've been wanting this particular cake stand for some time and finally was able to buy one through ebay. It is "Baroque" by Wallace.

We were having company one weekend and I didn't have the time to bake something, so I bought a package of cheesecake slices. One look at that cheesecake and I knew I was going to be taking pictures.

It was a rather gloomy day, so I chose "Old Country Roses" by Royal Albert for the china. It's such a cheerful china pattern.

I love this little Avon candy dish

What a beautiful table and the lovely silver cake stand is a wonderful find. My husband and I enjoy the hunt of finding new pieces to go with our collection. I must say you have many lovely pieces and should share your tablescapes with the other bloggers. You definitely have a talent.

Thank you Texas Tea Party. I'm working on taking pictures, the next step will be to get them posted here. I'm having a hard time wrestling with the blog format. I'm still struggling to navigate the blogs I'm trying to follow! lol

Thank you for the encouragement.

AT, that is a terrific cake stand and anything you put on it, is sure to stand out...and that cheesecake really does! Yummy! I love bold colours of the roses on the Old Country Roses china.

The Old Country Roses started out as our breakfast set. It's so elegantly cheerful. It has since grown into a full dinner set. lol
