11th Barscape - Farberware "Sanibel Island" & Homer Laughlin

Here is my weekend barscape.  As I have explained before I set the bar because that is where my Husband & I eat our meals.  I do a barscape every weekend so that we are actually using all the stuff I buy for Tablescapes...This weekend's barscape is Farberware, Sanibel Island and Homer Laughlin.  I was only able to find 4 dinner plates and 1 desert plate & two cups at my local Goodwill - will have to keep looking for more pieces - because they are absolutely gorgeous and I love the glaze - very similar to the Pflatzgraff glaze that I love...

The stem ware is also from GW $1.06 each - got 4 of them.

The flowered placemats and the flowery napkins were separate purchses at two different Hospices.  The silver is our regular silverware - our "everyday"....

the bowls are Home Laughlin - this white set happens to have that pretty glaze as well.

Dinner is served - husband patiently waiting for pics.  On the menu - Ginger/Teriyaki shrimp - marinated then cooked on stove top in grill pan, stoned/baked-buttered asparagus tips and steamed basmanti rice.  Mint ice tea our beverage of choice...


Now pics of the barscape after dinner; dishes washed and returned to the barscape for use at next meal.

after dinner cleanu-up - the barscape is reset for the next meal!

  7. Tammy, that looks really pretty good. I love this Farberware, it has a cheery design and the placemats echo that color very fine. And I love the pretty shape of the cups. The glasses are amazing. And of course, the meal is outstanding, I would love to participate. I am sure your family loved it. I wish you a very nice weekend.
