Welcome to the 320th Tablescape Thursday!
Yesterday I popped into Pottery Barn to get a look their tabletop goodies for the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. The PB near me was under construction last time I visited because they were expanding the size of the store. With construction complete, things looked very different on this trip. They had lots of pretty tablescapes set up throughout the store.
Just inside the front door I spotted a Thanksgiving tablescape. I snapped a few pics with my cellphone but didn’t get a closeup of the plates. I’m pretty sure they were the same turkey plates they had available from last year. The centerpiece was a row of three candlelit lanterns.
On another table, they had a fall/Thanksgiving table setting with pheasant salad plates.
The pheasants are almost a stylized version, very dramatic in appearance.
Next, I spotted several Christmas tablescapes. I haven’t visited the PB site online in a while so the Christmas dishware and linens I saw on this trip were all new to me.
I came so close to buying a few of their “painted Santa” napkins. They are white, trimmed with a red border…super cute!
They were paired with Santa plates.
The reindeer are back again this year. I think Pottery Barn has been carrying this line for several years. They had a lot of holiday/Christmas table runners, too.
The theme for this table was a Woodland scene. I didn’t notice the “fur” placemats while there…not sure how I missed those! Ummm, they are different, aren’t they? The centerpiece was a combination of small faux evergreen trees and twig reindeer.
The plates come in 4 woodland patterns. I think the deer was my favorite. Love the paisley napkins!
This made me smile…the ornaments hanging on the antlers are salt and pepper shakers.
This table was a wonderful surprise! If I didn’t already have some similar dishware, I may have succumbed and made a few purchases.
The dishware pattern shows a Christmas village…sound familiar?
Remember the snowy winter tablescape I created last winter? (Snowy tablescape can be viewed here: A Winter Table Setting, Tablecloth by Mother Nature
The dishware I used in this setting is also a Christmas village.
This pattern is by David Carter Brown and is called Christmas Valley. He also makes another pattern called Christmas Village. Both are adorable!
Here’s the Pottery Barn version of a Christmas Village. I love it!
Love the platter that goes with this set!
Hope you enjoyed this tour of some of the tablescaping goodies I saw on my recent visit to Pottery Barn. I may have to go back for some painted Santa napkins and a Christmas village platter.
