My Favorite So far!


I am really enjoying this tablescape. I shouldn't be playing favorites since they are all my creations but I think this is my favorite so far. I just love the colors.












I found those green swans from an antique store. They were $2.50 each.



The topiary was in the guest room. I thought it is perfect for this tablescape. The marble plateau

came from Home Goods in Houston.



I noticed our Sevres urns have this magenta purplish color so I added them to the table. They came from a local antique shop downtown.



The marble plateau is a lazy Susan too.






The plates are "Floral Lilac" by Royal Stafford. I found them at TJ Maxx. John earned some rewards from a a credit card use and I bought a $200 TJ Maxx gift certificate with it, so the dishes plus more, really cost me nothing.


The plate chargers were on clearance for less than $3 each at Z Gallerie.




The wine glasses and tumblers are Lyonnais by La Rochere. I love the raised pattern and the color.


S&P shakers and silver napkin rings. The napkin rings came from an antique shop downtown too which we bought about a year ago. They were quite pricey but I really like them and they are very heavy. I begged John to buy them for me and he did!


A friend of mine gave me the peacock votive holder when she visited me from Florida.




Centerpiece on a marble plateau.




I also bought the table runner from TJ Maxx with the gift certificate.



Just taking photos from different angles of the formal dining room.







The table cloth is from Williams Sonoma.



The veggie peacock was from my friend Debjani when she went to Michigan.


We bought the Sevres urns from an antique shop here in Natchez. John and I both love Sevres so we try to buy when we see anything affordable that we like. Ususally we see a lot that we like but they are mostly unaffordable, unfportunately. I guess the advantage is that they keep their value that way.
