Give the Gift of a Tablescape......

When you love doing something give it as a gift.  That is what I did for a dear friend today!  It was such a joy to surprise her with this gift.  Thank you Sherry for allowing me to spread my obsession of tablescaping all the way to your house!

The dinnerware is Thomson Pottery - I loved the look - the square dishes made it contemporary and the dots looked like ornaments.  Thought it was the best choice making it versatile for every day use and for the holidays! 

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. That was so sweet of you and I am sure your friend really appreciated it. The table looks so good- the poinsettia arrangement looks awesome and I love the little gift napkin holders. Love, ~Nana~

  2. I love the contemporary feel of this table -- what great dishes! That pattern does look Christmas-y, the way you've staged it. What darling napkin rings!

  3. I love those dishes! You've done a great job for a very lucky friend! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Those are the cutest dishes and the napkin rings just set it off perfectly.

  5. Such a great idea. I love to help friends design tablescapes when they entertain. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
