Warm Menu

Are you ready for another Seasonal Sunday at The Tablescaper ? I'm still working on warm thoughts for this chilly season, so how about a tabletop inspired by a tablecloth with a warm menu? The theme of this vintage linen is bouillabaisse. Yes, this dish is hard to spell and probably harder to make in the traditional way, but somehow it just evokes warm thoughts to me.

Lots of dishfairies contributed to this table: the napkin rings, salt & pepper shakers and the Villeroy and Boch vase were all gifts. Let's build the placesetting.

You're dining on Fiesta dinnerware plates in sapphire, vintage Chicken of the Sea premium plates most likely by Hollydale Pottery, Fiesta individual pasta bowls in paprika, Oneida Deauville cream soup spoons, thrift store wine glasses and contemporary napkins.

In case you were wondering, if I want to eat this lovely stew, I pick up the phone and make a reservation at a favorite local restaurant!


  1. This tablescape is warm and inviting! Love those fish plates.

  2. Very, very nice! That is a fabulous tablecloth! I love all the accessories!

  3. Beautiful table Daphne! Lovin' that great tablecloth, does your restaurant deliver?:@)

  4. Super cute. I love the shakers :)

  5. Daphne, I loved that last comment. You are a woman after my own heart. LOL!

    What a cute, cute cloth, and I loved all of your colorful china. This is such a happy table and guaranteed to chase the winter doldrums away.

    Happy Seasonal Sunday...
