Tablescape Tuesday: Peacocks & Feathers

“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God…”
Luke 12:6

Peacocks–aren’t they just beautiful birds?!  Their iridescent tail feathers of green and blue, along with “eye” markings of blue, gold, red and other hues are gorgeous examples of the artistry of our Creator!  Since I love feathers and peacocks, this dinnerware gracing our tablescape caught my eye many years ago.   I love using it on a regular basis and its colors are so adaptable to every season!

This week, I really let my imagination run wild!

Table set for six!

The more layers, textures, and patterns used make for more of a visual feast!  I have collected “stuff” for forty years.  That is what makes it fun!!

The first layer is a cream color linen/cotton blend tablecloth.  Dinnerware pattern is “The Artesian Road Collection” by Tracy Porter and is hand-painted.  Although discontinued, it can still be found on the web.

I used my feather placemats over the cloth to add layers and texture.  What I love about this china pattern is the different colors and designs of each piece!

Notice the bamboo details around the edge of the pattern

Teal votives provided the perfect candlelight!

As a table runner, I used a teal scarf with a Greek key design that I bought last year in Rhodes, Greece.  Tip:  I often use scarves as table runners…so much variety to choose from!

Instead of flowers, I used peacock feathers!

I purchased the pair of old figurines from a friend.  There are no markings on them, so I don’t know anything about them–all I know is that I love them and they were inexpensive!  I use them on my family room mantel, but often move them to the dining table.

My friend, Brenda, gave me the peacock place card holders.  Aren’t they so fun?! They always receive lots of comments!

Feather napkin rings offer texture and drama!  I chose teal napkins to complement the peacock theme.

The stemware remains a favorite and was purchased at Tuesday Morning at a bargain!

The miniature vases holding the feathers are also Tracy Porter

The three tier dessert stand is the piece de resistance of the “Artesian Road Collection”.  It is holding delicious pears for this tablescape, but you can normally find it at home on my kitchen island!!

Thank you, my friends, for tuning in to our blog.  Your love and support have been a constant encouragement throughout our blogging journey!

I love when you comment!!

    Wow, Pam, you’ve outdone yourself here with some pretty wonderful pieces. You have a great eye for combining colors, and since I’m crazy for texture I like all that I see here.

    • Lulu, thank you so much! I love using all the “stuff” I have collected through the years! It is so much fun pulling out things that bring back wonderful and cherished memories! Blessings, Pam
