Tablescape Thurs. - Bringing the Outdoors In



Yea, today is Tablescape Thursday. This is the day we get to play with all of our dishes, such fun. This wonderful event is hosted by the gracious Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch. Be sure to see another one of her gorgeous tablescapes and a list of all the other participants. I know you will be in awe at the gorgeous tables.

Today I am using the fun Chicken Wire Lantern Cloche that I found at Ross. I've decided to do a little vignette inside. I'm practicing for the upcoming "Cloche Party" in Sept. Don't forget to round up all of your cloches and be prepared to join the party.


I've used a tray that I also found at Ross to hold my little vignette.



A branch from the yard, a birdnest, a few tiny roses and a sweet little bird sitting in the branch. Looks like the little guy is watching over his eggs.



A couple of his bird friends are playing in the grass amid the ivy and roses. Two candles for ambiance and the tray vignette is complete.



It's already been up to 116 here, so I wanted to bring a little of the outdoors in. It is just too hot to be outside.



An overhead view of the table.



I used a tablecloth with tulips to help bring even more of the outdoors in.



Each place setting is set with Dollar Tree wine and goblet, everyday Rogers flatware, napkins from GW, Yellow Federal dishes from GW and rattan place mats that I've had for years.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Practice with those cloches if you have one, or continue the hunt if you don't. Our next party is just a little over a month away. Don't forget that apothecary jars qualify too. I can hardly wait to see everyone's creations. It's been a really busy week and I havn't been able to make all the rounds and thank everyone for your wonderful comments about my guest post with Kathysue. I was so thrilled to have her as a guest and she was really tickled with all the sweet and gracious comments. Thanks for giving her such a beautiful welcome.

    I just adore your yellow dishes! I been hunting a perfect set! One day! The candles look great on the tray with the cloche! The birds are so cute!!
    PS I do love Daddy visits, he's going on 83, I do not get to be with him alone very much. So this was very special day. Oh, and its my daughter that lives beside me. Let me know the date of the party! For I will be in surgery, mid Sept. I might can post and have someone to add me if it then!

  20. What a pretty and summery table you have for us. Just beautiful. I really love your yellow dishes. The centerpiece is just precious.
    I had to miss the last cloche party..bwaaaaa... but am hoping to be able to join in on the next one. As soon as you get a button up for it, I'll put it on my sidebar..

  21. Oh no, Mrty! Is the next cloche party on the 19th? Looks like I won't be able to join cause I am not home and won't be home till Aug. 1st. (unless I find something to buy that is not breakable here in FL) Anyway, love your vignette and your wire clothe. I wish I could find something like that. Been looking but haven't been successful.I also love your yellow plates, such a sunny and refreshing color!...Christine

  24. Marty, this is so pretty. Yes, we definitely have to bring the outdoors in this year as well, it has been crazy hot (or as in a line from one of my favorite movies "Biloxi Blues" - it's Africa hot!) I love what you did with the wire cloche! I really like that cloche alot. I may look for one - attempting to have the guest room done by September so maybe this will give me a kick in the pants lol. Hugs, Kat

  47. Marty, That china is such a pretty yellow. I love what a soft yellow it is. I loved that cloche the first time I saw it, and you just keep making me want one of those. So pretty the way you did the centerpiece on a tray. You did bring the outdoors in, and it looks wonderful. laurie

  49. Outstanding Marty! Wonderful place setting and yes there is that little cloche that I didn't get out there to check on. I have had very little energy lately with all the changes they have made in my insulin dosages and such. My body is still trying to adjust. Love the glasses and plates. GW and Dollar Tree are such wonderful places to visit. Thanks for sharing. Country Hugs, Sherry

  54. Beautiful table as always. I love the gentle yellow color or your dishes and of course, the cloche is to die for.

  55. Can you believe it? In all my travels, I've never bought a cloche. I'm going to have to rethink that error :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for the reminder, Marty! And guess what! I just bought a wire cloche from Marshall's for $10 and it's exactly like yours, I think, with a removable candle holder inside. I hope it does not break when I take it home...Christine
