With Thanksgiving just four days away, some families and friends may be having a dinner this weekend to be able to share this season with as many as possible.  I wanted to have a dinner party with this table, but alas it didn't work out.  Still, I can see the table as I come down …

November Tablescape

November is such a great month for tables, with all the lovely colors of fall.  I like to set an everyday table for us to enjoy all month, this time featuring the two large pilgrim figures I inherited. To begin, I wanted the table to be full of color, so I put the burgundy tablecloth …

Al Fresco Tablescape for Two

After some really hot days here, the temperature finally leveled off at more of our normal upper 70s to low 80s daytime highs.  Even if it is hot during the day, when the sun goes past the mountaintop to the west, it cools considerably.  Early evening temps are pleasant, with a light breeze, and the …

Springtime Tablescape

Spring has finally sprung, although the temperatures are still a bit cool.  My bulbs are blooming, and it was time to make a pretty springtime table.  My inspiration for the setting was this adorable wheelbarrow I found at the thrift store.  I liked the soft colors on the painted wood, and the little tulip stencil …

Mardi Gras comes later this year, it is tomorrow!  So, time for a tablescape featuring purple, green and gold.  I thought it would be the ideal table to bring out the green Depression glass grill plates.  I've had these for many years, and in the past we used them quite regularly, often for take out …
