Tablescape Tuesday: Waterford and Wedgwood

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭ 

On a recent trip to the British Isles, Butch and I spent some time in Waterford, Ireland.  The most famous crystal in the world, Waterford, takes its name from the city where its history began in 1783.  The company has undergone many changes over the years. In 1986 Waterford acquired Wedgwood, the prestigious company specializing since 1759 in exquisite bone china and earthenware.  With the most recent change in July, Fiskars Corporation acquired the group of companies, Waterford, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Royal Albert, and Rogaska.  Hopefully, this beautiful crystal will continue its history in Waterford, Ireland!

We spent time at the House of Waterford Crystal which included a guided tour of the manufacturing process and a beautiful retail store with the largest collection of Waterford crystal in the world. The store had a gorgeous tablescape set with exquisite Waterford and Wedgwood.  Of course, I took photos with the idea of sharing with you all.  Please forgive me for not listing all the patterns in the setting, but I couldn’t take the time to catalog all of that info. I think I had pushed my sweet husband’s patience long enough!

A large 72 inch table set with sparkling crystal, fine china, and sterling silver.  I wouldn’t have a clue how much this would cost, but obviously thousands.  We can always enjoy looking!

Notice the symbol of Waterford is a seahorse!


Vera Wang “Grosgrain” by Wedgwood!  The bone china is inspired by the subtle romantic touches that Wang uses to trim her world-famous bridal gowns!  The platinum border trim is reminiscent of delicate needle lace.



I love these candle holders and should have bought them!

The ceiling above the table was mirrored so Butch just had to get a photo of me using my iPhone to snap the Tablescape!

The acrylic chairs gave a modern vibe!


The celadon green accents are perfection with all the crystal!

The wow factor – Waterford crystal chandelier!  A chandelier is the jewelry of a room!

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

Most of us will never set a table this elaborate, but wasn’t it fun to look!?

    Oh my, Pam, thank you for sharing such beauty. I’ve decided that instead of running away to join the circus, I’m going to go the the Waterford Factory and set up tablescapes! Wouldn’t that be fun to play with such prettiness every day? Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    This looks so pretty. I have had a full set of crystal dishware and serveware since I was 19 years old and I have never once used them. You’ve inspired me to bring them out and set a fancy table. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

  3. Jann Olson says:

    Wow, that chandelier is really breathtaking! The crystal is gorgeous and I love the Vera Wang. My sis was given lots of crystal for her wedding by relatives that owned a jewelry company. I don’t think she has ever had them out of the boxes. What a shame! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    How breathtakingly beautiful! What I like about the table is that even with all of the lovely Crystal the place setting is actually very simple which makes the table feel quite comfortable.

    Love your tour of Waterford and the displays are gorgeous! The decanter in clear crystal and green is fabulous and really caught my eye! We visited the potteries in England several years ago and enjoyed the Waterford center, Royal Doulton,Spode, Minton, Masons, Portmerion, and many others. I loved dining in the Waterford restaurant on their plates with prepared food on each. If you have a Tuesday Morning store near you there popular Lismore pattern is sold at a good price. I bought there stines in Lismore for my son there. What did you chose for a souvenir at Waterford? Your photos were wonderful and I enjoyed them so much!
    Please, come visit my Lemon Zest tablescape post this week!
    Have a great week!


    • Pam, thank you for your gracious comments! Waterford was certainly a delight and a feast for the eyes! Your travels certainly sound interesting! Travel has opened my eyes to culture! I visited your lovely lemon-themed tablescape and commented!

We love your comments!
