Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas
Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The coffee service is an important part of any dinner party or luncheon. I often set it up on the sideboard -- a sterling coffee pot, sugar and creamer. A "scoop" of demitasse spoons -- some English, some American, some plate, some sterling and three precious Russian ones -- prerevolution.
The other parts of the silver service -- the tea pot, the spirit pot and the covered sugar bowl are put away. The cups are old, heritage unknown, bought at a garage sale in the city ages ago. I collect white china with gold rims. The cups are dainty almost eggshell thin. Each cup has the same set of initials on it in gold.
Coffee, it seems always tastes better when poured from a silver pot!
Thanks again to Susan, from Between Naps on the Porch, for sponsoring Tabletop Thursday.
