    1. Gorgeous photos, and lots of wonderful inspiration. The book includes a diverse mix of vintage ideas, so you have plenty to choose from depending on your personal style, whether you prefer victorian, art deco, elegant and formal or kitchy and homey.

    2. Beautiful photos that have inspired me to use my china and collection of glasses more often. The one thing I seem to be missing is a cake stand!
