Dinner in a Country Lodge

Welcome to the 469th Tablescape Thursday! It's still very warm here in Georgia, but some David Carter Brown plates I purchased recently have put me in the mood for a bit of fall fun.   I almost placed this table setting in the dining room since it has more of an autumn feel with its red walls.   But in the end I decided to stay on the porch since it was so nice out with … [Read more...]




A Woodland Table Celebrating the Beauty of the Northwoods Forest

Welcome to the 416th Tablescape Thursday! We're still having beautiful weather in the 80's each day, but the table I set for this week has more of an autumn feel.   Have you been wondering what's happened to the seat cushions I normally have on the chairs around the table?

Where Did You Get That Flatware?

The Best-Dressed Table At The County Fair

Welcome to the 315th Tablescape Thursday! It's that time of year. The days are getting shorter, the leaves are beginning to change color and there's a cool crispness to the evening air. That can only mean one thing; the smell of cotton candy and funnel cakes will soon fill the air.  Source The Country Fair is in town! Each year Dawnette bravely takes up a most unique challenge--she enters a … [Read more...]




A Christmas Dinner Party

Welcome to the 224th Tablescape Thursday! Three or four weeks ago I posted this tablescape below for a Tablescape Thursday.  Sunday I had a little dinner party and at first I set the table with my Lenox, Winter Greetings pattern.  At the last minute, I decided the table was feeling a bit more formal than I wanted for this gathering.  I wanted our party to feel more cozy and casual.  So I decided to … [Read more...]
