Pretty Reprise

Wedgwood’s Runnymede pattern was the choice of many couples after its introduction in the early ’70s. It bears an ornate center medallion and a navy border incorporating scallop shells—a popular motif through the ages. Shirred loops on the napkins mimic the flourishes adorning the border, as do the gold-edged place mats.
