Welcome to the 45th Metamorphosis Monday! For this weeks Met Monday, we’re going to Bonnie’s beautiful home to see how she has transformed her hutch in her breakfast room. When we last saw it around the end of October, it was all decked out for Halloween. Remember this amazing pic?
Well, honey, that was so, three weeks ago! Feast your eyes now! Wow…quite a transformation from Halloween…love it!
Come a little closer for a better view…
Love this guy…he appears to be a tureen. Wouldn’t he be gorgeous in the center of a tablescape?! I love the platter he’s sitting on, too!
Today’s Met Monday has a bonus! Bonnie is sharing her Thanksgiving tablescape. Oh, I see the lower half of the hutch now…do you see the harvest pumpkins?
Another gorgeous Fitz and Floyd tureen is acting as the centerpiece on Bonnie’s Thanksgiving table.
Wow, he’s huge and fabulous! Perfect for Turkey Day!
I love all the colors…he really is stunning!
Intricately carved, wooden chargers are the base for our place setting…
Your soup will be served in your own little turkey tureen. Love the bark flatware! I’ve sort of become obsessed with different kinds of flatware lately…wonder who got me on this kick? You can really see the beautiful tablecloth in this pic…the colors are so perfect for this fall tablescape.
Let’s dim the lights and enjoy by candlelight…
Bonnie, thanks so much for generously sharing your home with all of us. Your hutch is stunning and your Thanksgiving tablescape was a delight!

Love Tablescaping, but don’t have a blog?
Do you love playing in the dishes and creating beautiful tablescapes, but don’t have a blog on which to showcase those great tablescapes? Well, here’s your chance! Each Saturday, during the month of December, I will publish photos of your tablescapes, to share with readers who visit BNOTP. It can be a holiday tablescape or a regular, non-themed tablescape…it’s up to you.
Here’s how it works:
Send me 5-6 of your favorite photos of a tablescape you’ve created, along with a brief description (if you like) of how you created it or where you got your inspiration.
E-mail you pics to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Saturday Tablescapes.” Each Saturday, during the month of December, I will post tablescapes that were submitted by readers/followers of BNOTP.
A few tips:
1. Try taking your pics without using the flash, if possible. Turn on lamps, etc… in the room for light. Your pics will turn out much prettier without the glare of the flash. (Hint: Tripods help in low lighting, although I don’t much like using them.)
2. Give us one “overall” shot of your tablescape so we can see the whole table. Then give us some closeups of your place settings, centerpiece and any other details you wish to share.
3. Give us a brief list of the patterns/brands of china, stemware, flatware, centerpiece, etc… you used and where and when you acquired those items.
Here’s an example:
China: Lenox, Winter Greetings, Macys, 3 years ago
Stemware: Dollar Store, 2 weeks ago
Centerpiece: Fitz and Floyd, eBay, 2 months ago
Flatware: Pattern unknown
BNOTP readers are an inquisitive bunch…we always want to know the name of your china, stemware, etc…and where and how long ago you bought it, so we can go buy some, too! If it’s no longer available, break it to us gently.
Please list the elements you use, as I’ve shown in the above example in your e-mail to me. That will greatly assist in the preparation of the post and will make those folks viewing your tablescape very happy people.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I’ll reply via a comment here on this post and will try to amend the above information to include any additional details I’ve overlooked.
