My tablescape this week is a “pretend” one using pieces that are normally eye candies and aren’t used at the table. But that certainly does not mean these pieces can’t appear on the table for a “dress-up” party, does it?

Thank you for popping by my “dress-up party for dishes”! I hope you have enjoyed my pretend tablesetting. Have a lovely day!
