Welcome to the 370th Tablescape Thursday!
On Monday, October 19th, after spending the day in Positano, we had dinner in a beautiful restaurant on the way back to our hotel in Sorrento. We’ve been traveling all day today, en route from Sorrento to Rome (that’s why my post is late going up) so the info I have about the restaurant we dined in is buried somewhere in my suitcase. When I get home, I’ll share additional pictures of this lovely place. I would love to go back there one day!
In the meantime, I wanted to share the table where we dined. Hope you can help me identify the dishware that was used for each course. They were all beautiful and some of my favorite patterns, though right now I’m not sure of the names of the patterns.
The centerpiece was a bouquet of roses and baby’s breath.
As each course was removed to make way for the next, a lacy doily decorated the plate. Such a great idea instead of staring at an empty charger between courses.
I loved seeing all the dishware used for each course. I’m sharing these pictures in the order each was served.
I’ve seen this pattern before but I’m not sure of the name. I’ll try to find the names of the different patterns and will add them to the post. I wish I could tell you the names of what we had for dinner, but I don’t really remember now. I do remember it was delicious, though! The pastry toward the bottom had a cheesy type filling, or at least that’s what it seemed like to me.
A yummy pasta! If you recognize a dishware pattern, leave a comment with the name and I’ll add it to this post.
I cut the end of this so you can see it was filled withe a cheesy filling. I’ve eaten soooo much pasta and cheese the last 2 weeks! It will be time to diet when I get back home!
They gave us not one, but two desserts! Mama Mia, as they say here in Italy! I thought that was just a saying that we hear in movies or on TV. Nope, they really do say that here when exclaiming over something extraordinary or shocking!
Did you recognize any of the dishware patterns?
Looking forward to the wonderful tables posted for this Tablescape Thursday!

To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.
That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
