Tablescape Thursday With My Favorite Dishes



This is a casual tablescape incorporating my cow collection. My whole kitchen at one time was black and white cows. I eventually got so tired of it that I got rid of most of them and only kept the most sentimental gifts and really cute stuff.

These are some cute little napkin rings that an artist friend made for me
years and years ago.

In case you are wondering... Yes I did use my melamine plates right
along with my everyday china.

My Cobalt Imperial Glasses.

I put the cutlery through the napkin rings instead of the napkins...





Make sure you stop by Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch
to see all the amazing tablescapes.


Enjoy!

Liz, I love Holstein cows too! I have had quite a collection of that stuff over the years too, but slowly I'm getting new things to ADD to them! Can't quite get rid of them yet! Love what you did with your table. Especially I love your blue dishes....so pretty! Great idea with the napkin holders to hold the silver!! Very pretty table!!

Love your table and all your combinations of things! I see we share similar tastes! And have the same cutlery (though not what I used with the table you saw on my blog.) I love it though! Have a grea day!

I love all the cows, but especially the napkin rings -- what a treasure! The red polka-dotted placemats look wonderful on the blue tablecloth -- and I'll bet they are very versatile, too. Love the centerpiece with the sweet miniature chair!

Mismatching is really a cool thing that I never thought of it.

THanks for sharing the ideas that I can bring it home.

I think your cow collection is so adorable. Living here in Lancaster, Pa cows are everywhere! My mom has such a cute cow collection too. She has the cutest frig magnet with a row of cows for the back and it says,"dairy air". I think that is so funny! I love your combo of dishes and placemats. The cow napkin rings really are fun with it.

Oh I love these! I found the melamine ones at Tuesday Morning this past week and I thought I got a different size in the flag ones. I didn't so my mom will receive them for mother's day! I have searched for them since you used them last year! Enjoy your beautiful table!
Hugs, Lisa

Another cow lover here -- I can see we're not alone! I, too, got rid of many cow things and seem to have moved on to pigs -- but your wonderful table brought it all back! I LOVE your tablescape!
