32nd Tablescape - Green/Purple Pflatzgraff

Pflatzgraff - Vienna Floral on green placemats.  Fact is I absolutely love Pflatzgraff; the glaze, the raised scroll; two toned edges - details are always so pretty.
The center piece is a small lace table cloth turned at an angle; a round green placemat.  The flowered topiary was a piece given to me by a woman tha I built a home for back when I was a contractor building homes.  The two crystal candlestick holders were my grandmothers.
Lite the candles.
I used two different chargers 2 - green & 2 purple.  In the picture it is hard to see the color difference.  Usine a lace over plaid napkin and flowered napkin rings to hold them together.
Banana nut muffins - baked in a Pflatzgraff stoneware muffin pan!

The constant is the welcome sign, the first thing you see when you walk in the door.  It is ceramic and compliments all of my tablescapes and says what I want everyone to feel when they walk in.
As always - thanks to Susan at BNOTP for sponsoring Tablescape Thursdays. Remember: "Around the world - - life is best around the table". Thanks for visiting & please leave some encouraging words!


  1. What a great table setting. So fresh and pretty. I am really inspired by that lace in the middle of the table. Gotta get to work on that!!!

  2. That is a beautiful table, I love the colors and thso muffins look delicious! I like the welcome sign at the edge of the table, very nice. I was going to toss out a halloween sign but now I think I'll keep it and use it on my table, thanks for the idea.

  3. Look great, love the shot with the candles lit!
