Thanksgiving & Christmas Tablescapes With Pottery Barn

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 stick 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!

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.

Did anything tempt you on this trip?

Tablescape Thursday

If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address. 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.)

If you would like to use the Tablescape Thursday logo button in your post, just copy and paste it to your computer and upload it to your post as you would any photo.

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.


  1. You know…some folk love watching a good football game, etc…..know what I love…looking at tablescapes. Even as a child “that” is what made me “click”…my tea parties were the “talk of the playroom!!” :) Love “shopping” with you. franki

  2. Susan, I was just in our PB checking out their Thanksgiving and Christmas tabletop goodies this week! Your winter tablesetting and tablecloth by Mother Nature brings a smile to my face every time I see it :)

  3. Susan, I also would have come close to buying the Santa napkins. They would look great with the lovely red and white polka dot napkins that I got from Pottery Barn two years ago. Thanks for sharing Pottery Barn’s tables.

  4. Hi Susan! Thanks for all the peeks at what’s new at PB! You know what a big copy-cat I am so I already have my eye on some of it! Thanks for hosting!…hugs…Debbie

  5. Gotta love that deer head and s/p shaker combo. He has several prongs, so maybe he could hold small ornaments in another setting. Or used in fall setting with pinecone shakers? And since he’s silver and white, used all winter. Hope someone has more creative ideas than I, and could put him to good use since he’s so adorable.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
