More White Over Here!

Hosted by "A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words"

Hosted by "The Gypsy's Corner"

Hosted by "Cuisine Kathleen"

Good afternoon all! Sorry I'm late, but I couldn't pass up this great event hosted by our dear Kathleen honoring the white gems in our cupboards, hutch, buffet, and in my case, a bookcase. LOL

And since this is a tablescaping blog, I did a tablescape! (Clever idea, ha? Ha?) LOL

I just pulled out all the creamy white dinnerware and white goodies I have and combined them in this serene almost formal cottage table for four. I was imagining dining with another great couple who loves the purity of true love and home cooked meals...







Did you notice how many candles I used, definitely more than three! And that cake stand, from Freecycle, so totally 2nd Time Around.

Though I thoroughly enjoyed creating this table design, I still secretly wish to play with these set of pearly whites someday...
NIKKO "Blanc Fleur"



Thanks for hosting, Kathleen, Diane and Tam!


Thanks for peeking!

  3. The bunny egg dish is my favorite. I passed one up one time and have regretted it ever since. Pretty as usual.

  7. Chandy,
    Ohhh, Ahhhh this is so DREAMY! I have been eyeing those same pearly whites at our favorite Tuesday Morning store. This is why I held off and did not buy the Big Lots dishes. You have made me into a dish snob...love it.

  30. Okay, I am sooo out of it. I have never even heard the word "tablescape" before. But, I am a total dish set lover so I really like this white table setting. I am a Portmerion girl myself though.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ooooh what great ideas..
    I'll be back!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's totally impressive! I could never make my table look like that. Maybe it's because there is a 5 year old, a 16 month old, and a newborn sitting at/on/around it(we don't do "white" anything)!

    ReplyDelete
  33. So cottage and romantic. All white is so elegant! Love it.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  100. I wish someone had been wise enough to tell me to get white dishes when I got married. Instead I picked the most obnoxious, trendy set of dishes that spoke to me. Ugh. When we moved two years ago, I left them behind for the people who bought the house...and went still in another direction. This gorgeous open stock black and red (very Asian) dishes. But my 11 year old is very hard on the dishes she washes. And now...I don't know how to replace them. Again...if only I had white...

    ReplyDelete
  101. Oh, how pretty! I've never thought to do all white before! I have no white dishes, but they are obviously essentials! I'll go get some. I love your blog! I'll be back often =)
