Okay, I’m revealing my age a bit, something that doesn’t bother me at all, but this 60s jingle has stuck with me for over 50 years! I was really into Barbie when I was young and I loved to change her outfits. “Mix and match, it’s fun to do, what Barbie wears is up to you…” spoke to me as a young girl of the 1960s.
Well, this jingle now goes perfectly with the table philosophy of Southern Vintage Table – love to mix and match patterns in every color, in any pattern from every decade. It’s like bringing together generations of families who sat at their dinner table throughout the century. Mix and match is still fun to do!

What do The Andy Griffith Show, The Munsters and old Westerns have in common? Well, yes, they are all midcentury classic television but there’s something even cooler – they share a common dining table setting, the Blue Willow vintage china pattern. These famous shows set their table with this blue and white pattern because it is crisp, vintage and full of history. First designed in the 18th century, Blue Willow has been on generations of family dining tables and continues to be popular today. Read more about this fascinating pattern on Wikipedia.
There’s something special about blue vintage china that many folks appreciate. Blue Willow features dark indigo against white that’s so striking. Blends of light blue vintage china are soothing and inviting. Vintage turquoise has a romantic flair while blues with greens, pinks and yellows present a cheery table.
Whether it’s the classic blue and white vintage china table setting, a myriad of blue vintage china stoneware patterns or a mingling of soft elegant blue vintage china patterns, your guests will love it.

Especially if it’s vintage! These vintage stainless steel beauties are mid century patterns, mostly made in Japan. I love the engraved patterns and when they are mixed and matched, the place setting is delightful! Did you know that the knife was the first piece of flatware to be invented? You probably would have guessed that one…
These early and mid century silver plated flatware patterns are also very lovely! The process of adding a layer of silver, called silver plating, was invented in the mid 1800s in England. This process has allowed many of us to enjoy the beautiful sheen of silver on our dinner table.
Southern Vintage Table has both stainless and silver-plated flatware available along with our vintage china, glassware and linens.
I have always loved dishes that stood tall off the table. They had a regal air about them with their straight pedestal and flared foot. As a child I didn’t know they were called compotes or footed dishes, I just knew I liked them.
Now the toed dishes – they are just cute! Some have pudgy toes and others are long and lean, but nonetheless, they add an adorable factor to the dish.
When I’m out looking for new dishes for Southern Vintage Table, I can’t resist ones with a foot or ones with toes. They just add elegance to the tablescape that everyone appreciates. Here is a full view of some of our footed and toed serving dishes in our collection and be sure to check out more photos on our Pinterest board.
These as well as beautiful vintage china, glassware, linens and flatware are available from Southern Vintage Table!
