Tablescape Tuesday: Join Us At Table 7

“Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:3‬ 

If you’ve been a reader of Everyday Living for any length of time, you will know who Patti is.  She is a precious friend of many years, and although distance separates us, we still see each other on occasion.  The last trip I made to Raleigh encompassed everything from good food and conversation to shopping to a two day tablescaping marathon!  Patti is a collector of the loveliest of table ware…her collection of china, sterling, crystal, and linens is by far the most extensive and gorgeous that I have personally seen, as she has traveled the world with her husband adding to her collection!  You can only imagine that this makes tablescaping extraordinarily fun at her house!  You have seen six of the tablescapes from her home so far, and today makes lucky number seven!  I think that it is time for another visit to North Carolina to catch up, eat, shop, and tablescape with Patti!

You can see all of the tablescapes from her house here:

This is the smaller dining room that adjoins the larger one!  Patti discovered the beautiful handmade tablecloth in India!  The table is set for four with Bernadaud Limoges china!

We decided to set the table for a light cheese and fruit course!  Europeans generally serve the cheese course before dessert…but, we Americans often enjoy cheese as an appetizer. Who says you have to follow the rules?  I say eat your cheese whenever you wish!

“Metropoles ” by Bernadaud is an absolutely stunning china pattern that Patti discovered in St. Martin!  Each place setting has a different color service plate.

The antique Meissen compote with strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries is a beautiful centerpiece!

We mixed the sterling flatware…fork and butter knife are Louis XV and the knife and spoon are “Prelude” by International!

The candy dish is a gorgeous antique piece!

Each dinner plate has scenes from different cities…this is London and the service plate by Bernadaud is “Nuage” bleu!

The sharp cheddar and crackers are served on a two-piece antique pedestal and tray!

The service plate is a beautiful shade of pink that really accents the dinner and salad plates!

Scenes from the “eternal city” of Rome decorates this dinner plate!

Two pair of vintage gold candlesticks with crystals complete the centerpiece!

    “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold
in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

      Yes, it is wonderful to pick up where we left off! Love tablescaping with my friend, Patti! Happy Wednesday, Sharon!

  1. Such an interesting pattern. Does she have plates from other cities other than Rome and London? I looked it up on either Ebay or replacements and saw plates from Moscow, Berlin, and New York. I was just curious because they are so interesting. Your friend, Patti, sounds so nice. I am glad you can enjoy this hobby with her.
    To have a second dining table is amazing. I will enjoy perusing the other tablescapes you have done together.

      Bonnie, Patti has 4 complete place settings! One of her plates is San Francisco and can’t remember the other one, somehow forgot to photograph the other two! She has so much china and so much to work with! It is lots of fun! Thank you for letting me know your problems with commenting! Someone who is more tech savvy than me is looking into it! Happy Wednesday!

    Mixing flatware? You wild woman! Ha!
    Love the Prelude pattern and all the other sparkly things as well. What a fun friend with a fun passion to literally serve others!

    Oh, my, word, Pam! I’m drooling all over my computer keyboard! What exquisite china!! I can’t imagine what the rest of her collection must look like. It must be so much fun to create tables with such beautiful components. Beautiful…beautiful…beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. Now I have to get some paper towels. LOL.

      Rosie, my friend has more table ware than a department store! She has collected for over 40 years! It is so much fun to have so much to select from to Tablescape! Thanks so much and have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Love the beautiful blue and white compote and antique candlesticks! Thanks for sharing your friends’ delightful tablescape… going to go back and view the rest of your post featuring her. My daughter went to school in Raleigh and moved back to Cary after graduation! I love to visit… lots to see and do in the area! :) ~Rhonda

      Rhonda, there is so much to do in the Raleigh area…lots of great shopping! Thank you for your sweet comments and wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

    • Everyday Living says:

      Shirley, when I get back to Raleigh I will let you know prior to my trip in hopes that we could meet for coffee or lunch! And yes, a dining room extension would be wonderful!
