For this week's Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch, I'm featuring my everyday Christmas dishes, Dansk Winterfest, which we use throughout the holidays. I found these dishes at a wonderful Dansk outlet that used to be in the French Quarter in New Orleans. I was so disappointed when I discovered it had closed! The table is set in the breakfast room today.
Here's a look at the placesetting. I was drawn to the pattern because it includes blue, my favorite color, and because of its casual, modern look.
Here's a bit closer look at the pattern.
And here's the "rim shot."
The pattern also includes glasses and mugs. I'm using only the glasses for this table.
A few years after I bought the dishes and glasses, I found the matching candleholders at an outlet near Princeton, NJ, while visiting my daughter and son-in-law.
The simple centerpiece also includes a rustic wooden tree from Pier 1 several years ago.
Here's one last look at the table.
Finally, here's a closer look at the baker's rack, decorated for the season.
Thank you for visiting my table this week! I hope you will leave a comment before you check out the rest of the tablescapes set for this Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!
You've heard of The Young and the Restless? And The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, the story of my life would have to be called The Dull and the Dutiful. No one would buy my autobiography, as I had a happy childhood, married a terrific man, and have two brilliant and delightful adult children and three adorable (and brilliant) grandchildren. Oh, and I have a great job at a university.
