Welcome to the 56th Tablescape Thursday!
One of the very best parts about blogging is getting to meet wonderful people who share my addiction appreciation for beautiful china and tablescaping. Recently, I had an opportunity to meet Bonnie…we didn’t get to meet in person, but certainly our hearts have met. Bonnie has an extensive and unbelievably beautiful collection of china, crystal, flatware and tablescaping goodies. I asked Bonnie if she entertains often, and lucky for us…the answer was, “Yes!” She generously agreed to share pics of some of her past tablescapes…prepare to be delighted!
I asked Bonnie if she would also share a little information about each tablescape. I told her we were all nosey and we’re bound to ask! If you see something in a tablescape and would like more information, just leave your question in a comment and I’ll try to get an answer for you or perhaps Bonnie will answer back in a comment herself.
Let’s start with a wonderfully romantic Valentine’s Day tablescape…the centerpiece with the floating candles and white doves takes my breath away! And look at those cute candles and candle holders! (Chargers are from Panache, Pink Morning Glory dishes are from TJ Maxx, Heart salad plates are from Harry & David, Candlesticks are Lenox, and Dove Bowl is from Casa Casa.)
Love the mix of pink and red china…flatware is perfect!
I am seriously coveting this bunny centerpiece! I asked Bonnie where she found it and she said it came from a mail-order type store called Panache…a store that was similar to Horchow. Unfortunately, they are no longer in business.
Bonnie told me, “We have an academy awards dinner every year. I just set the coffee table with movie related things and made place cards with guests photo shopped onto pics of winners.” I love this idea!
(Leaf plates are from Harry & David which is headquartered in Oregon. Chargers are from Panache, dinner plates from TJ Maxx, flatware, Ross & bubble glass goblets are from Mervyn’s.)
Bonnie, thank-you soooo much for sharing all these amazing and beautiful tablescapes! It has been such a joy to share them for this Tablescape Thursday!
Please be sure to leave Bonnie a comment letting her know how much you appreciate all the time and effort she spent forwarding these wonderful pics, as well as the detailed information about the elements that went into creating them. I’ve saved one of Bonnie’s delightful fall tablescapes and some of her winter/Christmas tablescapes to share a little later…how’s that for a tease.
Looking forward to seeing your beautiful tablescapes!
