Subtle Hues of Spring

This beautiful tablescape comes to us from our guest contributor Pam Jones.  The dishware is Harkleroad as seen on the 1960’s TV series, Gidget.  I love the soft green and ivory colors!


This elegant tablescape is set off by flowered glasses and beautiful gold cutlery. Love that th green brings out the green leaves of the flowers on the water glasses.


This table setting is set against a backdrop of ivory napkins and chargers, bringing out the beautiful greens in these dishes!


This Harkleroad creamer and sugar set are one of a kind and are a throwback to the 1960’s.


Spring is Coming!

I couldn’t wait any longer even though the snow was still on the ground!  So, here is my first Spring tablescape!

Combining pinks and greens makes this table pop with spring colors!


Green hydrangea napkin holders complete the look on the table setting.


I added some tulip buds to the center to remind me that the flowers of Spring are coming up soon! I alternated pink and green charges under the white plates for a touch of Spring color.

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Tablescape

Valentines Day Tablescape

One of my favorite tables was this Valentine one from a couple years ago!  Love the red peony plates with the red chargers!  The sprinkles of Valentine hearts add a nice touch as well.  And, of course, the red roses are the touch of class for the table!


Vday Tablescape 1

Here is another take on Valentine’s Day dinner.  This time we added red dessert cups to the peony plates and a white cotton tablecloth gave a more casual scene.

Vday Tablescape 2

Here is a close up of the place setting.  The peony plates were my grandmother’s and so I love to put them out when I can.  The gold trim around the edge has faded, but they are still beautiful!

Vday Tablescape 3

Here is a close up of the center of the table – red and crystal are always a good pairing! Although you can’t see them well in the light, at a dinner, the little glimmer lights cast a beautiful glow to the table.



Elegant Winter Tablescape

winter table 1

This is our winter tablescape with pearls, silver and crystals.  The silver and white accents play off each other nicely and create an elegant atmosphere.

The table setting combines silver, white and clear dishes along with a silver/grey napkins and festive ribbon as the napkin rings.  The salad plates are antique lace edge plates by Fenton.  I love this nostalgic touch on this elegant table!

winter table 3

The centerpiece is filled with pearls, silver, crystal baubles and jewels.  The Fenton milk glass compote dishes made excellent holders and the center Fenton candy dish completed the look.  All were antiques given to me, and I love being able to use them in my tablescapes!
