Welcome to the 371st Tablescape Thursday!
Good Morning! Hope your day is off to an awesome start! I have a fun Halloween craft I’ll be sharing tomorrow, something I’ve been wanting to make for a while. I think it will put a smile on your face. It’s one you can do for yourself or share with your children or grandchildren.
Last week for Tablescape Thursday, I shared a beautiful table from one of the lovely restaurants we ate in while on a tour of Italy. The restaurant was Antico Francischiello located in Massalubrense, very close to Sorrento.
This dinner really stood out from the others because each course was served on beautiful dishware, a different china pattern for each course!
You never see this done in restaurants, or at least I never have.
Thanks to everyone last week who tried to help with identifying the various china pattern used for this dinner.
You’ll find the suggested patterns in the comments on that post here: A 4-Course Meal with 2 Desserts
For this week’s Tablescape Thursday, I wanted to take you through the other areas of this delightful restaurant. Just as dining on different china patterns was such a wonderfully unique experience in dining out, walking into and through this restaurant was a charming experience, as well.
When we entered the front door, this was what we saw in the center of the room. I was completely enchanted by all the swan planters, I could not quit gawking at them! Aren’t they beautiful! I wonder how they keep all these plants alive with so little available sunlight. It must be a houseplant that doesn’t require a lot of light.
It was surrounded by these lovelies…yum!
I loved the wood ceiling. The walls were covered with beautiful art and vintage dishware.
You can tell that one of the owners must be a lover of vintage china because it was displayed everywhere. I wondered if it might be for sale, but I didn’t see any price tags, so I think it’s their personal collection.
I don’t think this is where they actually prepared our meals but I wonder if it’s a place they teach classes. I never saw anyone to ask. I’m going to see if I can find out more about this restaurant.
A bar, probably for use when they host events here.
Another view of the old kitchen area and the vintage china collection.
This was one of the dining areas inside the restaurant. We didn’t eat here but were seated in another area of the restaurant.
Sooo pretty! I love the color of the walls and how perfectly it matches the tablecloths and napkins.
Wouldn’t this be perfect for a Ladies’s Tea or a Bridal Shower?
There was so much to see, it was hard to take it all in.
More art to enjoy…
I wish we had been able to meet the owners and hear the story behind this collection.
It was a lovely dinner and highly recommend this restaurant if you are ever in that area of Italy.
Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful 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.
