Tablescape Tuesday

Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan at: http://www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/



So this time I decided to share a simple table scape with our everyday dishes!

Trust me most days this is NOT how it looks...not even close (lol)
You see this precious little fellow? This was a gift and he holds a bottle of wine isn't he cute?





I added a little Christmas decor to make it look pretty!




I know it's weird to see the palms with the Christmas decor but hey on Christmas eve it was 73 degrees here! I love the mosaic candle holder the reflection it gives off in the evening is incredible!




A close up of the glasses with the palm trees!



Table for four please!



I think this little doggie is so cute! You see my Tally in the background trying desperately to get into the picture!









I tried to get some pictures of the table on Christmas eve. Every year we have a drop in and this year was no different! We had a total of 27 people that dropped in! I didn't have all the food on the table yet but here's a small preview of most of it! I know bad blogger right?



Where's the shrimp? Oh yeah....had no room in my fridge had to store it at the neighbor's!
G-man go get the shrimp please!


We had a great drop in! The only thing missing of course is all of our friends and family from Canada! Maybe next year?

Hope you all have a great day and the Happiest of New Year's to ALL!!



Hugs Lisa and G-man

This is beautiful--I love how you've layered things. The textures are such a great idea. I just want to lean in closer and stare. But those glasses add just the right punch of color. Oh, I do love this, Madame.
Your party food looks delicious! But I'm trying not to look. I started my diet today (too many petit fours).

Ma'dame French said...

That wine bottle holder is SO cute! I love it. And that palm tree stemware is great! Looks like a wonderful Christmas Eve spread. I know your guests enjoyed it. laurie

imjacobsmom said...

It's just a glitch French, it will return, mine did that earlier tonight....it was scary. Then it asked me for my user name and password and then it wouldn't take it -over and over and over - yikes! It returned as quickly as it left! Both of your tables are beautiful! The food looks yummy! Our Christmas was a balmy 38 degrees! A heat wave! Seriously, your table is very pretty and that little wine dog is too cute. My brother would really like that. ~ Robyn

Gollum said...

French, it IS gone. I was hoping you meant just a little bit--but it has vanished. Maybe Blogger can straighten it out.

Good luck with your Ebay hunting. I have been searching for chargers and can't seem to find what I want. But I have seen oodles of dishes. There was a sale on bird house dishes--a whole set. I almost made an offer and forgot about it. They were pretty, though.

Susan said...

Looks like your sidebar is back!

I love the doggie...looks like my dachshunds...so I think you should send it to me (just kidding)

Your everyday table is beautiful!

Melissa Miller said...

Hi French,
I LOVE your palm tree stemware! I'm a Florida girl myself. The whole table looks wonderful as well as your Christmas Eve drop in buffet. ~Beautiful.
Have a blessed New Year.
~Melissa :)

Linda said...

Looks really nice, what time you cracking the wine? I am ready, tee hee!

ohhh French, I love the warm colors and textures on your tablescape... and the green stemware is just a wonderful jolt of fresh color... and the 'lil candleholders are so pretty. This is just PERFECT. When you come to Canada to visit please pack up the whole scape and bring it over.

The Muse said...

looks extremely fun LOL...
what color! i can imagine that you feel the beach aura all year so, using it fits easily...

what caught my eye? the goblets yes and especially the doggy server/holder...
every table needs an element to make you smile!

Chris said...

A beautiful setting French. Just perfect. I love your wall color, it's beautiful. Most of my house is real estate white, just like all my houses since 1992,plus our apartments that we owned. I am so sick of it. Wish I could do something different, but my walls are all open rooms, no stopping point. I wish I had your talent.

Love Ya,
Chris

Bo said...

Hi Lisa...Your table looks wonderful & I love your palm tree goblets...I think they're very appropriate at Christmas...
remember where Jesus was born there were plenty of palms. Your drop-in looked delicious...did you fix all of that? Yum!
Happy New Year! ;-) Bo

Love the bit of whimsy you added in the doggie wine caddy. Your stemware is gorgeous.
The mosaic glass container you have in the center of your table looks as though it came right out of my bridal tablescape I have for today..LOL
Happy New Year!

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

I didn't get pics of my Christmas day table...I think we all get caught up in the hecticness of the season & have to prioritize. ;o)

I love all the textures of this table...& the doggy server is too cute!

Pretty table. We had a lot of company also. Nice with the tropical touch. Happy New Year!

Everything looks wonderful. Those green glasses are a treasure!! Sally

Justine said...

I love your every-day table look. And I adore glass mosaic candle holders. Have quite a few myself. So, sounds like your crowd was just about the same size as mine. Although, I bet your kitchen is all spic and span by now. Mine's NOT.

Justine :o )

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Lisa, I am so.. glad you did a casual tablescape. I love your little pop of green. The wine bottle holder is awesome. Now, You have given me the courage to try posting one of my tablescapes. I have a lot of nice stoneware. I just don't have much for china. We don't live a very formal life.
Hugs, Terrie

Schotzy said...

Looks like a swanky restaurant! A true picture in a book! Love it all. That food looks delish, as well!

Helen said...

Everything looks so "you!" Lovely and totally put together. I am glad we met this year ... looking forward to a good 2009 for all!

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Hi French...wonderful tablescape! I was just thinking how I love the way the palm tree glasses look with the "shutter" back chairs and woven placemats. The colors, different textures and designs have that "Hemmingway" feel to me...does that sound crazy? :-) I love the warmth and coziness of this tablescape. Thanks for another great Tablescape Tuesday! Susan

Cottage Rose said...

prof en retraite said...

Hi French!! I love the tablescape. I'm working up the nerve to try. And your goodies look soooo yummy. If I can just make it through the collards and black-eyed peas, I'll start a diet...after all tomorrow IS another day...lol..

Love all the textures and the wine holder is just too cute!

Michael said...

I love your wine bottle holder! I bought a similar one for my aunt - it was of a chef. I found it while I was living in Germany, but I've never seen anything like that again.

Ok, forget the table scape...I'm all about the food! And I wonder why I need to drop 30 next year, LOL.

Have a great New Year's!

Donna Marie said...

French!!!! I just typed this long message to you and I lost my darn connection!!!!! (Aaaaahhhhhh)

I love and cherish you and our friendship. I am looking forward to another year of being BFF's with you!

Thank you so much for being the same person everyday! :) That's what I love about you the most. You are a good person everyday. No slip ups! (LOL)

Thank you for introducing me to blogging! I love blogging, just as you said I would!

Have a Happy New Year with G, Jake and Sam!

tardevil said...

Love the green & brown...if you've been to my blog, you may be able to tell that! :O) I also am a big fan of tropical since I'm a beach bum who can't live at the beach, so I also love the table & chairs & palm trees. The green glass & mosaic candleholders are awesome too...a beautiful table!
