Setting the table just because…

tablescape thursday

… I felt like doing so, even though I was only serving roast beef, green beans and homemade rolls for dinner:

The rose sprigs are Baby Blanket from Jackson Perkins.  They are groundcover roses that have vigorously blossomed this year:

The centerpiece was quickly assembled from my Italian brass pheasants on a framed picture that I haven’t hung on the wall, fluffed up with a bit of English Ivy from the front yard.  You will notice that you have probably seen the tablecloth before.  I don’t have a large repertoire of tablecloths.  The tablecloth you see is actually my quilt that has appeared “The Quilter”:

Let’s get started with our comfort food dinner before everything turns cold, shall we?

Thanks for stopping by – Have yourself a lovely day, won’t you?  Blessing to you all!

  1. Oh I love your tablesetting. I love the use of quilts as tablecloths, they always add so much interest. The dishes you layered are so pretty and how lovely together. I love it all. Hugs, Marty

  2. As always, your quilt is just stunning! I love the array of dishes. Although I have to tell you, I would not be able to cover up that Spode transferware — LOVE that pattern! The roses are a such a pretty touch, and as far as I’m concerned, homemade dinner rolls call for a beautiful table setting all by themselves! ;)

  3. Wow, two of my favorite things, a quilt and beautiful dishes! What a lovely tablescape you have done. It is just gorgeous! What a wonderful post!

  4. So pretty Wendy. I love all the different blue and the layering of the different plates. Very nice! Blessings…
