Tablescape Tuesday

Hello Everyone!
It's time for my first tablescape tour.
It's a Thanksgiving setting for an informal gathering.

I received the rooster S/P shakers as a gift. I used tassles as hanging accents on the stemware.
Have a wonderful week!

Beautiful tablescape! I love all the details-the tassles, the jewels in the candle holder to add extra sparkle--and I LOVE how you layered the placemats! That's a new one for me, and an idea I think I'll 'borrow' from you if you don't mind!! ;-)

Miss Janice said...

Congratulations on your new blog--I'm new at this as well! I love the colors of your tablescape, the tassels on the goblets and the layers of placemats. I also love the photos you have shown of your house. I look forward to more:)

Your Thanksgiving table is so pretty. I noticed you have the same paint colors in your home as I do........which of course means you have very good taste. Welcome to the world of blogging I am sure you will enjoy and get hooked. Visit my cottage when you have a minute.

What a pretty tablescape, Melissa! The tassles are such a good idea and I love your dishes, and the hurricane lamp centerpiece.

I love your Mr. Chestnut :-)
My husband has almost the same moustache ..lol!

I added you to my blogroll so I can check back often

Carrie said...

I love how you put the tassels on the stemware.

Glenda said...

I have often heard that red is a stimulating color and I would have to agree. I'm not gutsy enough to use it, but really admire someone that does. I find this very visually exciting. Love everything.
If RMS ever straightens out, I will check out your post there.

Melisssa,
I work really hard for each bride that hires me. I add so many little touches that makes them so happy and it shows we they send me thank notes. I pin each person in the wedding and I never leave the bride untill she has walked down and the isle and I know everything is ok. But to be honest we get invited to all most every wedding. I have been so booked I finally took off the month of Nov. to get some of my stuff done at and around the house. I have
over 2,000 sq feet of wedding rooms and my design room is just in disray! Thanks, for stopping by again always a pleasure talking to and visiting you.

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, So I made you giggle?!! He He. It wasn't funny at the time, but now it is! I still can't belive it never dawned on me, that's why I felt so stupid! This isn't the first crazy thing I've done and I'm sure it won't be the last. Kristen

Happy To Be said...

Hey Melissa girl hope all is well with you..Love Mr.Chestnut ..too funny girl..Hugs and smiles Goria

"Blossom" said...

Sorry I was not home when you came by to visit. I went out to lunch with Steve and then went to one of my favorite interior stores.
It's in New Trenton Indiana.
It's called Sackstedeters Interiors.
They where having a sale on christmas ribbon buy on bolt and get a second one free. So I am going to do my fire place mantel.
I got a leopard and gold ribbon; my great room is gold and the custome drapes are a gold, plum, weird colors. I have so much to do and can't get focus on what to do first. Unlike when I have a wedding to do I'm on pilot. The sun just came out and I still have about 7 mums to plant from the containers to the yard.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

This exquisite setting is prefect for a intimate formal dinner. I appreciate seeing this, since large tablescapes are more commonly featured during the Holiday season, which not all entertaining is on a large scale. Thanks for sharing these ideas.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
