Light Blue Depression Glass

On June 6th I wrote about purchasing some light blue Depression dishware.  You can read the post here.  I promised to share photos when I used the dishes.  On June 24th I had a birthday tea for three dear friends where the dishes made their first appearance.   I didn't have matching soup bowls, luncheon plates or bread and butter plates, so I mixed and matched my Johann Haviland Blue Garland china.

The Birthday Gals

Iced Tea - Celestial Seasonings Herbal Wild Berry Zinger
Hot Tea - Peach Mango Black Tea
[This looks like a Sadler Teapot, but it's backstamped Churchill, Made in Romania.]

Chilled Blueberry Soup and Savory Cheesy Basil Scones

Broccoli Salad

Tuscan Torte

Chocolate Mound Birthday Cake [I blogged about the recipe here]

I have  since acquired the soup bowls, but I'm still searching for luncheon/salad plates and bread and butter/dessert plates.   


  1. Lovely table, friends and food! What a fun day!

  2. What a lovely and loving gift for your friends. Everything is just beautiful

  3. How pretty your table looks with the blue DG and the pretty china. What a nice party. Happy Birthday to your friends!

  4. Very pretty and I love the mix and match feel of the table.

  5. Love the depression glass and the Blue Garland. I have Blue Garland too! Your meal looks fabulous, Phyllis.
    Hugs, Beth

  6. That's a great combo with Blue Garland. So pretty! The menu looks fab and the cake! Whoa!!! Glad you had such a special birthday!

  7. What a great looking celebration! That blue glassware is so very striking. Love how you mixed and matched!
