Vintage Illustrations of Elegant Table Settings

I’m back!
It’s been a while since my last FVI post, but I’m stoked to be back with more vintage images for your projects.
We’re in the middle of the holiday season, so I thought I’d revisit one of my favorite public domain resources, Mrs. Beeton’s Household management.
In it, you’ll find everything from old-fashioned food platters to fancy desserts.
However, one of my favorite sections is devoted purely to elegant table settings.


These versatile vintage illustrations are ideal for the following:

  • Tea party invitations
  • Birthday party invitations
  • Valentine’s Day collages
  • Holiday collages
  • Style websites
  • Printed fabric
  • Pinterest pages
  • Finger puppet theater sets and more!

These ideas are just the start.
How do these illustrations inspire you?
