Welcome to the 350th Tablescape Thursday!
Recently I stopped by Pottery Barn to check out their spring and summer dishware. They have a sale going on right now for some of their flatware, place card holders and dishware.
They had a lot of tables set, more than I ever remember seeing before at one time. This one feels very festive with all the different plate colors. The dishware kind of reminds me of Fiestaware, but in more subdued colors.
You’ll see a lot of candles in use on the tables. They aren’t your normal candles…more on those in just a sec.
This table had a “lemon” theme with lemon dishware. The black lanterns in the centerpiece look great with the yellow in the dishware.
This table was all about silver, even the soup bowls were silver! Pretty fancy!
I noticed they were using lanterns and candles in the centerpiece of almost all their tables. I’m pretty partial to using lanterns in the centerpiece of a table setting too, although I do love the softness of real flowers in a centerpiece. Of course, you can always use both!
The advantage of lanterns is they don’t wilt and they are always around when you’re ready to set a table on another day.
The aqua and navy blue colors in this tablescape gave it a beachy feel.
I have a set of these star napkins and I find that I use them a lot. I was glad to see they brought them back again this year.
I liked this flatware…I’m pretty sure it’s on sale right now online.
Another beach/ocean themed table…this one with white lanterns.
I think this table was my favorite…love the starfish plates!
These seahorse glasses were on sale. So tempting, I barely resisted!
The candles in all the place settings were the flameless type. When you stand back at a normal distance, they look very realistic because the “flame” appears to flicker and move around. If you move closer and really examine them, then you can tell they aren’t real.
I like how you can set them to come on at a particular time each evening. That would be especially nice during the winter because you could set them to come on so when you arrived home each evening, your home would be lit up and glowing. They are also great to use in areas where a regular candle won’t stay lit due to wind.
I especially like these with the shell design on the bottom half.
I do like how flameless candles are safer than real candles but I was little surprised at how much they run. I’m not sure how long this style candle has been being made, but maybe the price will come down eventually. The good thing is, once you buy them, you have them forever. The battery can be replaced when it runs down. These would be great in windows at Christmas wouldn’t they?
Do you have any of the flameless candles? Do you like them?
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.
