~ Dinner In The Kitchen ~

Hi Tablescaper's and visitor's. We are having take out Chicken Parmesan and a green salad tonight for dinner so I thought I would set the table early to join in Tablescape Thursday that Susan at Between Naps On The Porch so graciously hosts each week.
Earlier this fall after having our usual Friday night dinner at Brio on the porch in the Partridge Creek Mall near our house John wanted to look at surround sounds at Bose so I ran into Sur La Table that is right next door. My mission was to pick up some steak knives but these pretty Italian, Deruta Earthenware dishes caught my eye and some how ended up coming home with me.

They seem to look nice with this dried flower arrangement.


I like the natural flowers mixed with dried pods. They add nice texture to the tablescape.



A little candle light and the table is all set for dinner.

Thanks for coming by and be sure to check out the other tablescapers at Between Naps On The Porch.

Happy Thursday,
Hugs,
Sue

    I love the pattern on the dishes. They were just sitting there waiting for you to give them a home.

  3. I'm new to blogging, so this is my first visit. Your Deruta Earthenware is so gorgeous - I've had my eye on that pattern myself. We have a Brio near us also, it's one of my favorite restaurants. I hope to join in next week for TT. Love, love, love your dishes and tablescape. Thanks!
