Pinecone Respite

Welcome to The Tablescaper.

In the midst of all of this crazy weather…
IMG_1862
…we need to take a few moments…
IMG_1867
…to snuggle around the table.

Enjoy the company…

…of your family…
IMG_1896
…and friends.

The weather is…

…is just wicked.
IMG_1909
It’s nice to bring…

…the outdoors…
IMG_1945
…in…
IMG_1929
…and enjoy the comforts of home.

Ok, so where did all of this stuff come? The flatware is Gibson. I love how it looks like wood. I got the napkin rings at a great sale at Bed, Bath and Beyond this summer.

The pillows are my latest purchase  from Pier One. I love how they look like a sweater. The wheat colored  tablecloth was a purchase from Walmart many years ago. The overlay is a couple of yards of burlap. But my favorite item on the table is the “runner”. It’s a door mat! Obviously one that’s never been used.

The dinner plates are Bordallo Pinheiro. I got them this Fall at HomeGoods, but they only had eight. If anyone ever sees them, I’d love four more. The pinecone balls were a Christmas Tree purchase this fall. The green goblets and candle holders were purchases from Christmas Tree this summer.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this table!!! Every piece! I did not see those Pinhero plates at HG, and if I do I will have to try very hard not to keep them for myself :) I am looking for some similar pieces. The doormat was an inspired idea, and those pinecone bowls really complete the look! Excellent table! Linda

Beth said...

Your dinner plates and pine cone bowls are just adorable! This is a very seasonal and beautiful table.
Blessings, Beth

What a beautiful table and a great use for a door mat! The pine must smell good too.

Red Couch Recipes said...

I love the doormat on the table -- who knew they were so versatile-- maybe one of your guests could rest their feet! The whole table is just so warming -- the dinner plates are so special. Can't help you here -- I have never been to a HG before. The pinecone bowls are so unique. I loved looking at your table and your pics are beautiful. Joni

You find the best things. Love the plates and little bowls. This table feels so comfortable with its woodland look. As always, another winner! ~ Sarah

Lori E said...

How fun is that table. Have a look on ebay for the plates. It seems you can get anything on there.

Becky said...

I love your pine theme and certainly see why you'd like more of the plates. Such a cozy setting for a cold winter day.

Pam - diy Design Fanatic said...

I love, love, love those dishes! All the layers are wonderful!

Alycia Nichols said...

Stop it! A doormat??!?!! I was sitting here admiring it and finally got down to your resources and...a doormat??!?!! How creative!

pogonip said...

I love every single thing about your table. It reminds me of a summer dinner at a lakeside cabin--and we all need a little summer right now!

Lana K. W. Austin said...

You've done it again--another gorgeous table with such immense attention to detail!!! I love the rustic nature of this, yet it's still so elegant!!!! I bet it smells good, too!

The colors, the textures, the burlap...a wonderful mix of elements. I'll keep my eye out for the Bordallo with pinecones. Thank you for sharing your wonderful design. Cherry Kay

Dining Delight said...

Another terrific tablescape! The pine-woodsy theme is so appropriate this season and the colours you've used make it feel very cozy and inviting. I will never look at "doormats" on store shelves the same way again! Fabulous idea!

Hello...

Ohhh...one of the prettiest winter tables ever! I love the natural color scheme and the rustic, woodsy feeling! It really does just make me want to snuggle up to this beautiful wintery table! Love your pretty place settings! The green plates with the little pinecones are awesome...and could the pinecone bowls be any more perfect? I think not! I must tell you, one of my favorite things about your pretty table is that woven doormat! My friend, I was wondering what it was...what a GRAND idea! Don't you just love all the texture and interest it brings to the table! I may have to use that idea! Hehe! Thank you so much for sharing your winter's table with us...it is GORGEOUS!!!

I also wanted to thank you for stopping by for a visit! I really enjoyed your sweet note, my friend! Thank you!

Warmest winter wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

What a great setting, I love pine cones - but I've never seen pine cone dishes in the UK at all.

Dreamgoddess said...

How pretty! The doormat was an unexpected surprise and I had to go back and look at it again. I love how you added the pine branches.

swedecollection said...

All those textures give your tablescape a great indoor/outdoor look. Love the plates and cone bowls with the pine boughs. You really showed creative talent on how to do a winter look! Summer for Swede Collection

Thanks so much for dropping by at my tablescape post today and your kind comments. I love your pine themed table today. The dishes are so unique and make for a sweet homey setting.

Pattie T. said...

Your table settings always make me gasp. This one is a real stunner. I love the tranquil feeling I get from the subdued colors. Green is my favorite color, so it appeals on this level, but the whole pinecone theme is just marvelous. Those bowls are wonderful.

Mrs Roberts said...

Your tablescape is beautiful. I would love to have those dishes. Thanks for sharing.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Am drooling with all turquiouse things you have. I'm starting to love this colours.

Have a blessed w/end.
