Christmas Tablesettings by the Readers of BNOTP

A few weeks ago, I mentioned on Saturdays, during the month of December, I would love to post tablescapes created by folks who enjoy tablescaping, but don’t happen to have a blog. I’m delighted to say, I received pics of some wonderful tablescapes and I’m excited to share them with you today!

Nancyย created a beautiful fall tablescape…come on in and have a seat!

Beautiful china…such amazing detail! It feels both elegant and whimsical…love it!

When night falls, we’ll be dining by candlelight…

Our napkins get a bit of fall color, too…

I adore this centerpiece! Nancy told me the swan is an actual (hollow) decoy…the type used in hunting. Doesn’t it make a stunning centerpiece with this gorgeous floral arrangement?

The fall color is carried right onto the chandelier…brilliant!

Nancy, thanks so much for sharing this wonderful fall tablescape!

China: Villery & Boch ; Pattern Intarsia
Glass candle hoders and candle: Pier One
Silverware: Reed & Barton
Swan Floral Centerpiece: Swan is a hollow decoy (kind used in hunting)

Kim is sharing a Christmasy tablescape with a whimsical snowflake theme.

Aren’t these napkins and napkin rings cute as can be? Kim found the napkins at Hobby Lobby, one of my absolutely favorite places to shop. Would you like to win a years worth of shopping at Hobby Lobby? Kelee at The Katillac Shack is sponsoring a fabulous Hobby Lobby Give-a-Way…click HERE to enter.

The snowflake theme is continued here on these adorable salad plates…

I see Frosty has been dining with us…and he appears to have left his hat! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ohhh, another beautifully decorated chandelier!

Kim included a pic of her gorgeous Christmas tree that’s visible from the dining room. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful holiday tablescape, Kim!

Chargers: Hobby Lobby, 2 years ago
Dinner plates: Target, 4 years ago
Glasses: Kroger, new
Napkins: Hobby Lobby, new

Judy has her kitchen table all ready for us…come on in! The narcissus are just about to burst into bloom.

I love the avian theme…note the birdie accent pieces and the adorable salt and pepper shakers.

The vintage tablecloth stole my heart…it’s so perfect for Christmas and this tablesetting. Cute salad plates!

The glassware is depression glass and it looks absolutely beautiful with the more modern salad plates.

Judy, thanks so much for sharing this wonderful tablescape! It’s the perfect blend of vintage and modern!

    These are wonderful. I think these ladies need blogs of their own, so they can join in on Thursdays, and play with their dishes some more.

    Wonderful table settings… very imaginative. That first set of china is breathtaking — and I love the Christmas themed pieces in the next two settings. Great idea, Susan!

  2. Oh such pretty eye candy, the tablesettings are just beautiful! So many great ideas for the holidays! Happy Holidays! Miss Bloomers/Sonia

    Hi, Susan! I love these tablescapes. I'm glad you hooked into Pink Saturday with them so all the Pinkys can see them.

    I'm up late and trying to get some blogging done before tomorrow!

    Happy Pink Saturday…

    XO,

    Sheila ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Susan-This was such a good idea! Thanks for giving us a chance to see! Have a great weekend!

  10. Hi, Susan,
    Thanks for sharing these beautiful tablescapes. These ladies should ALL have a blog.
    I love the red curtains in Kim's dining room. I'd love to know where she got them.

    D

  11. Such wonderful tablescapes. They should have their own blogs but what a great friend you are to share them on your blog.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    What lovely tablescapes to share with us! They're beautiful! โ˜บโ™ฅโ˜บ Diane

  13. Susan — thanks for sharing those wonderful tables with us! Those ladies do need blogs to join us every Thursday!

    Love the china on all of the tables!

  14. Nancy, Oh, my! Your swan centerpiece and chandelier and table are stunning with the fall colors of bittersweet and touches of black. So elegant!

    Kim, Aren't you glad Frosty forgot his hat? Perfect centerpiece. Your darling little pillows are so inviting and is that a lantern with snowflake plate and candle on the column? Love, love it!

    Judy, Such a cheerful table! I'd love to have breakfast here. The vintage tablecloth and sweet little birds with the crandberry glass are a perfect combination.

    Thanks Susan for showing these wonderful tablescapes.

  15. We're getting our first Hobby Lobby in Idaho quite soon, chickee, and I can't wait since I've heard so much about it. Beautiful settings. Love charger plates and just acquired some for our Christmas Dinner.

    I'm putting up my first pink and white tree today. This will take several hours if not days with all the stuff I've made or collected. Hubs is reserving his opinion until I finish, but it'll be great I know!

    xoxo,
    Connie

  16. Susan, thank you so much for sharing my tablescape along with the other two beautiful tablescapes. I have learned so much by looking through so many tablescapes almost every Thursday. If this were to become a hobby of mine I would definitely need a storage closet for all the goodies. I have a small closet that I need to clean out and put some shelves in. Uh oh, it sounds like I may have some work for my husband to do. lol

    D, the window panels are from countrycurtains.com purchased recently. Thanks for asking.

    Merry Christmas,

    Kim

  17. Susan, I love the story of your carolers and of you and your husband as a young couple just starting out. Happy Pink Saturday!

  18. Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says:

    These are all so pretty, Susan. Thank you for sharing them. I need to get my own Christmas dishes up from the basement and washed and ready for use.

  19. Melissa Miller says:

    Wonderful tablescapes Susan! Thank you for sharing them with us.

    Enjoy this joy filled season!
    ~Warmly, ~Melissa ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Oh wow… gorgeous!
    I adore Kims so much!!!

  21. Oh my, Susan, these are just gorgeous! Love them all. What wonderful ideas and imaginations! Love Kim's tablescape and her tree! Very festive post for a Pink Saturday; thanks for sharing and have yourself a wonderful weekend.

    Christmas blessings,
    Sandi

  22. Susan I have tried twice to vote for your tablescape but there is nothing clickable there even after I have signed in to FB on my account. I can see who has commented and who has said they liked it but no thumbs up that I can click.

  26. Ummm…these are so lovely.
    I fell in love with Kim's red buffalo checked curtains…Now, I want some!! :O)
    Thanks for sharing these with us…

  27. Enjoyed seeing these ladies tablescapes so much. Such a variety of ideas. You are so sweet to sponser those that don't have a blog. I was one of those not long ago.
    Sure hope you win the contest. Yours was by far my favorite.

  28. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says:

    Hi Lori,
    I think if the "like" button is appearing grayed out, you would probably need to add yourself as a "fan" to HomeGoods. You can click on their main Facebook page and "fan" them, then you'll be able to vote. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for trying…you are a love to do that!
    Susan

  29. Oh, what beautiful tablescapes you've posted this week, Susan. Thanks to the three ladies for opening up their homes to us. They all did outstanding jobs, and need blogs of their own!

    Kim, if you see this, could you click to my blog and let me know where you got your dining bench? I got one at my table, and just love, and have recently bought a new table that can expand even longer, so I'm in the market for another bench.

    Susan every table =settings are wonderfull. Thank you for sharing them with us

  31. I so hope you win, all of them are lovely but since I "know" you, you are the one that got my vote.
    Now, my dear Susan, remember that my poor old mom is still in the slammer and can't get released until I win something. You know, the old gal is 84 and not looking so good. ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care and enjoy this weekend.

    Thanks for your sweet friendship! ~ Sarah

  33. Thanks for posting these beautiful tablescapes of these very talented ladies for us to see. It is always a treat to visit your blog and see something special. What a wonderful idea you had to share these talents with your bloggers.

    Merry Christmas,

  34. SmilingSally says:

    So many beautiful items, Susan, but Frosty's hat caught my attention. What a cute idea!

  35. Sweet Designs says:

    I agree with everyone else, those ladies should definately do a blog of their own, they were all quite lovely. Tablescaping is addictive!

  36. All of these ladies have the touch. Thank you Susan for sharing these inspiring tables with us~
