Winter Thaw!

Still have snow, still have cold temperatures, so I am staying with my warm-up theme! I try to alternate between my kitchen and my dining room, but I knew my kitchen would continue to be the best backdrop for this dinner tablescape (it became a dinner tablescape when it kept getting later and later before I could get it put together!)


I hope you enjoy!






These colorful plates were the inspiration for this tablescape!



I've had this silk plant for years. I love the little feet
on the container. I tucked in a few berries to brighten
 it up, and some sparkly picks to repeat the sparkle in
the napkins, placemats, and fruit.






The glasses, napkins, sparkly fruit, and
both plates are from Goodwill!


















The bowls, placemats, and flatware are from Ross! I consider Ross my home away from home. If you call me, there is a 50% chance I will be in a Ross store!





















I received some very beautiful roses
from Mr. Wonderful this week!
















Thanks for letting me share with you!

Hi Elaine!

Those cute plates from GW were a great deal... did you get the napkins and fruit at the same time? It all looks very warm and inviting.

Such soft colors! I love the way all the plates and bowls are so different but compliment each other so well. And I love fruit with sparkle! Your roses are beautiful with all the different colors. Try to stay warm!

This is just gorgeous. I love the tones of color. Just lovely. It's not a single piece that catches your attention but rather all together a beautiful symphony.

It would wonderful to have you link to Seasonal Sundays this Sunday.

We share the L'Argent Sophia flatware in the 'gold.' I found mine at Tuesday Morning and Horchow. I'm going to check out Ross, I wouldn't mind four more place settings. I rarely think to go to Ross, but tons of people find wonderful things there. I adore the fruit plates...such warm, gorgeous colors, and the reticulated plates are marvelous. Thank you for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Lovely soft colors but with a bit of sparkle too! Very pretty. Love the shape of the bottom plates.
We don't have a Ross, it would be nice.
