Tablescape Thursday

Happy Tablescape Thursday Ladies.
The table is all set for a Birthday Celebration.

To set the table I used my dishes, flat ware, and accessories from Summer Hill, our old cottage in Harbor Springs.


This little Anna Weatherly tid bit plate with the butterfly is from the store where I used to work occasionally during the summer. I added it to the tablescape to coordinate with the butterfly clips that came as package decorations from Neiman-Marcus that I used on a couple of the napkins.



The mosaic rabbit plate came from the annual arts and crafts show that they have at Nub's Nob in Harbor Springs. I thought it looked kind of cute tucked into my center piece.




Here is a close up of the place setting.





This little candle stick with the sweet paper shade also came from Patricia Wood & Co., the shop I worked at.






It is a little faded but the detail on the back of the shade with the scalloped edge and hand sewn seam, ending in a bow, makes it worthy of preserving.







In the foyer I set up the dessert table with the dishes that I'm giving away to let you get a peek at how they might look when put to use.








You can go to the tag on my side bar to sign up to win this dessert set by Rosanna Inc.
Thank you again Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. To join in or to visit the other Tablescaper's hop on over and take a look at her gorgeous site.
Hugs,
Sue

  2. Love the tablescape, but I am a sucker for blue and white dishes. The gingham flatware is adorable! So cute, especially with the lampshade.

    Very pretty! You have such a good "eye" for placement, scale, and -- well, everything. The "giveaway" dishes look darling in their foyer setting; love the butler!

  39. Hello, found my way here thru Kristins! Beautiful home and photos you have. I love the idea of a dessert table set up. I will have to remember that when I have a family gathering again. We have 5 adult children, 3 grandaughters--2 grandsons due this summer. I know what its like to have the large family meal!

  43. Came over to say THANKS for the Congrats! That's very classy of you! I was actually hoping it would have been a closer game b/c it would have been more interesting. They should be very proud to make it that far. Growing up in the Raleigh area, NCSU coach Jim Valvano's kids went to my school. We were all so proud of their dad when NCSU was the underdog team & won the National Championship. It was awesome. I think that game gives hope to the underdog teams that there's always a chance. Have a happy Easter. Now, I'm off to look at your tablescape b/c I never made it through all of them last week! LOL!

    I believe we have similar taste, but my home in no way compares to the beauty in yours. I'm very inspired.

    I would love to see more pictures of your study. It looks so warm and inviting.

    Again, everything is breathtaking. May God bless you and keep you.
