I am thinking a lot lately about Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and my favorite part of that..setting the table. I hate the cooking part--other than to put the dishes in beautiful serving platters. Thank goodness my husband likes to cook. Anyway--got out some stuff and set the table for fun and thought I would share it. I decided that I really need to look for some beautiful old silverware because I don't have any and also some crystal water glasses. My daughter and I have the same dishes and so it works out great for big get togethers because we can borrow each others dishes.
Of course on the holidays it will be a setting for more like 13, than 4..but it will be fun! I do have 2 leaves for this little table, but I always set up at least 2 tables. In our house entertaining is cozy..and fun!
What a gorgeous table setting!!! You are an artist!
Does your table have a leaf in it? It must if you can seat 13!
Very pretty. Everything looks perfect for a lovely dinner.
It's very beautiful and serene. HWW
Lovely tablescape - very elegant! It great that you and your daughter can help each other out for family get-togethers like that!
How you can make these all white projects project such life is beyond me...you have SKILLS, GIRL!

Beautiful table...I have the same plates (in several colors)! The candlesticks are adorable.
Such a gorgeous table you have set. I just love white and have started to add it into my home. And how do you keep a white home so beautiful with 4 children, please let me know your secret. Hoping over from Bunny's.
Such a romantic tablesetting... I love how you used the tone on tone colors with hints of blue. That chandy is so pretty... I love crystal and it makes a perfect accent for your romantic table... love the cherub napkin holders and the beautiful white pedestal with the sparkly pumpkin. Beautiful post!

I agree decorating is one of the best things about the holidays! I can't wait to see how you do December.
I really appreciate your sympathy on the loss of my Belle.

What a gorgeous table setting! I especially love the chandelier and those pretty embroidered napkins with a touch of blue.
Very romantic and cozy for the holidays. :)
I love your white table. I am crazy for white pumpkins, I will be using them for my Thanksgiving decorations. That is the cutest little bird candleholdertoo!
Loving the crystal bird candlesticks!
Sweet, homey yet elegant setting
The white pumpkin and the crystal is lovely together.

So beautiful and elegant! I love the all white, with just a hint of blue in the napkins!! I'm with ya on the cooking thing, I love to set the table--cooking, not so much! Have a great weekend!

You have set a gorgeous table. It's so elegant and romantic. You certainly are an artist at this (I am not) and I appreciate your skill!
Thanks for linking this lovely post to Potpourri Friday! I really appreciate you and your participation!
Your tablescape is so dreamy all in white...I love it. I can't believe Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner...Yikes! Where does the time go :-) Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and Kisses,
What a pretty table, I love all the crystal! When I was a young bride my mom and I both had the Yorktowne dishes from Pflatzgraff and would combine them for holidays, but my daughters do not share my taste so I'm on my own now. I have some of the white ones like yours, but I really wish they still carried them because I'd like to get more, they are so pretty. I'm looking for some pretty vintage silverware too, good luck on your search!
White is so beautiful. I just love your candlesticks with the birds and the napkins rings are darling. You will have to post a photo of your tables when you have them all set. Dianne
What a lovely blog !.I love your white style.Thanks for sharing.
No kidding...setting the table IS the most fun part of it! I like to cook, but doing the cooking AND the setting up is quite the chore. I'm always glad when someone offers to bring a significant dish (provided they can cook, of course!). You are SO very lucky to have a husband who enjoys cooking!!!
Hi there, your tablescape is absolutely stunning. I love all the white china, etc. I have changed my chinaware in the last year to white but I don't entertain enough to set my table up like this. Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
