Spring Dishes in the Hutch {Noritake Summer Estate}

I am still on my quest to “Springify” by house.

For years, I had my “Old Country Roses” china in the hutch or “Welsh cupboard”

I had acquired this beautiful set of Noritake Summer Estate from my friend . .

~ ~ and recently just acquired some accent pieces to this set.

Vintage sherbet glasses filled with pears . .

Added more vintage pieces like this Depression Glass Salt and Pepper set.

An English Biscuit Jar . .

Trader Joe’s was selling mini pots of flowers…

~ ~ fit perfectly in the creamer!

More cheery flowers in another silver creamer/pitcher. . .

And in a vase made from a silver fork …

Or in the sugar bowl…

This silver set seems to appear in many rooms of the house . . .

My silver trophy bowl holds placemats for easy access along with candles . .

Spring themed creamer and sugar . .

Vignette on top of the hutch…

~ ~ a recent addition is the centuries old vinegar jar from France.

My hutch ready for Spring…now on to another room!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

  5. Your hutch is beautiful, Shirley…it looks like a very fine piece. I have always admired Summer Estate for it’s happy, yellow colour and it instantly would bring a table setting to life. I love the pears in the green sherbet glasses, Spring has arrived at your house! A beautiful nod to what’s around the corner…we have a bit of a longer wait here in Canada!! Thank you for this jolt of sunshine today! N.xo

  9. Shirley,
    Your hutch looks beautiful. Love the dishes and your accent pieces. I’m working on a little spring here but I keep jumping from room to room.

    Love the new dishes and all of the accessories in the hutch. You’re workin’ the spring, girlfriend!

  11. You are getting it all together. The sherbet glasses remind me of my aunt who, I believe, had those very ones. I admire those of you who change with the seasons. My house(s) pretty much stay the same.

  16. Shirley- That is beautiful. Those dishes are really pretty. I don’t (didn’t) know that pattern before. They really are springy and mixed in with all the yellow pops-it sure does look like Spring. That hutch is a gorgeous old piece just by itself! xo Diana

  17. Your hutch is gorgeous! Love those pops of yellow….sure does say Spring! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. I love how you ‘springified’ your hutch Shirley! The blooming Noritake is beautiful against the wood in contrast to the sparkling crystal and silver! The addition of blooms from TJ’s takes it over the top. I’m swooning over your biscuit jar ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. How wonderful! The silver vase made from a hollow knife handle and fork is amazing! Those delicate salt and pepper shakers are exquisite. Our church recently held our annual Valentine High Tea for widows in our community and each table hostess set her table with her own things. One of our women who is well along in years did a complete setting for 8 in all depression ware. Incredible. It is so fun to see the best of the best tableware come out to play isn’t it?

  20. Your hutch looks gorgeous Shirley! You have so many beautiful pieces and the yellow accents and pretty flowers are just perfect! I noticed daffodils starting to pop up in our neighborhood the other day so Spring is hopefully on it’s way soon!

    I have been known to be a bit of dish horder! I think I may have told you that I love dishes. It’s so nice to be able to change things up a bit and change the look of things. Your hutch is absolutely beautiful Shirley. Maybe I will be home again on Monday due to yes another 6-12″ of snow so perhaps I will clean my china cabinet and play. Thanks for the great idea!

  24. Beautiful as always Sheila. I really love the dishes and the Spring display with the pears looks so pretty!

    We slipped and slid in the midst of an ice storm last night as we drove home from a fundraiser event. What a mess! Home safe and sound, but my fingernails are bitten down to the quick! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t think Spring is coming our way anytime too soon. ๐Ÿ™
