Tablescape Thursday #4

tablescape Thanks for joining us for our forth Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to visit our good friend Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for links to all of the other tablescapes this week.

When we asked for a volunteer to put together this week’s tablescape, Patricia (VON) again jumped at the opportunity. Gretchen (GRE) enthusiastically volunteered to help. What they created is way more than just a tablescape! They have put together an entire scene, using a palette of greens and ivories with a punch of purple. What’s is most amazing is there is something in this scene from every dealer in our shop. I think this shows just how diverse our dealers are and how easy it is to find just the right item, seemingly no matter what you’re looking for. We’re calling this week’s tablescape “Former Princess, Reigning Queen”. tt4-09 As always, please click on any of the pictures below to see a larger version so you can see even more of the detail!

tt4-01Yes, there really are dishes on a table somewhere in there!
