My Everyday Table



Here are my every day dishes. They are in a grape pattern from Luminarc, the French Glass Company, and they came from Tuesday Morning.



The white shabby chic candle holder came from Kirkland's and I love to use it everyday, especially if I don't have flowers for the table.



I put the table on Craigs List and it sold within an a couple of hours. I am SOOOO excited to get a new table! This is my farewell table setting as I'm used to seeing it on daily basis. Bye Bye too long table!



The roosters came from my Aunt Ruth, who made them herself years ago...she was the the original ETSY girl! She's gone now, so I enjoy using them when I can.



This is my Imperial Glass cake plate from the 40's with my mother of pearl silver plate. I was given the cake plate by the original owner, and it looked like it had never been used.




I guess a new table needs new dishes right...and a new tablecloth and of course new glassware. Wait, that's exactly how it starts...



Take a trip to see Susan's other entries....they are all beautiful and so creative... at Between Naps on the Porch!

Very nice tablescape! That table looks great as well. I too had to let go of my oak table as we are currently apartment dwellers and it just didn't fit!

Lovely! Love the flatware...and your cake stand is very pretty! Of course a new table requires a new "wardrobe"!

Plates are so pretty. I have a cake plate like that from the 40s which was a wedding shower gift of my Moms. I like your table and also sold all my furniture when moving back east a few years ago on C's list. I should look to see if they have plates on C's list? Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new round table. I will be looking for it in future posts.

How gorgeous. I love the dishes and the beautiful cake plate. They are just lovely. Your Roosters are also so pretty. I love them in all white. The candleholder is stunning. We just now finally have a Kirklands, so I have to go visit. This is a beautiful table, no wonder it sold so fast. I can't wait to see the new one and all the lovely new dishes too. lol Hugs, Marty
