Tablescaping With Kimberly Schlegel Whitman


I thought you would enjoy seeing four more photos from Kimberly's book, Tablescapes (Gibbs-Smith). I know Mom of a German Shorthair will love these pheasant plates.

This tablescape whispers that spring can't be far behind.

What a delightful idea for a tablescape!
I am so ready for green!

I love this napkin ring. I'm wondering if I could make napkin rings from little stained glass "light catchers."
I'm still slogging away, but should be back posting regularly soon.

  5. I havae to go buy this book! Was there any information on those pheasant plates? And the pewter chargers ..... heaven.
    I'm so going to steal (uh, borrow) that idea of a moss covered table. I'm doing a ladies luncheon in a week. I do believe that the buffet table will be moss covered! Thanks for sharing all of these pics!
    Glad the slogging is going well! We all miss you!

(This gal has beauuuutiful "goodies"!)~~~ Jim's OOT (out of town), so I've been playing w/ table-settings for two days (BFF & her DH visiting soon, for 4 days!) & I thought they looked nice UNTIL I saw these. BUT, it's been fun messing up the dish pantry, etc! Many THANKS & CONGRATS on the babies, too!!! XOXOXOX, Linda

  14. Michael's has in some butterflies for spring that look very similar to these...although they're not as blinged up, so they're not as ornate. Something could probably be done about that though! :O) A beautiful table. Have you visited this Austrailian blog?

    There's a cool centerpiece & lots of eye candy.

  15. These are beautiful photos! I'm going to try copying a tablescape from the book, for a post. It's fun going back again and again, seeing what I missed the first and second, etc...times.

  17. The tablescapes are beautiful, but your "Quick Appetizers" are REALLY beautiful and delicious looking. Where there's a will, there's a way. I know you can come up with a solution to turning light catchers in to napkin rings.

    I gotta say, moss on a table has never appealed to me. Am I the only one? How would you keep the dishes, flatware, napkins etc. clean? I'm with you, I'm so ready for spring.

  23. You know me, I love the nature setting. I have the birds, the moss and I have a squirrel so I could pull that one off. That would be cute out in the porch. Hope things are going well for you. ~ Robyn
