“Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!”
Today is my ?? birthday!!
I am in awe of the mystery of mercy that my Heavenly Father has given me another year, another day, another breath. I have already been celebrating my birthday week with some great friends! Tune in on Monday’s blog to find out how we celebrated the day. If you remember, last week I shared a partial tour of Patti’s home here: Everyday Living at Patti’s. Today, I am sharing a Tablescape that I put together in less than twenty minutes while we were visiting. Patti has more china, silver, and crystal than Belk! She has loved collecting through the years and her collection is quite stunning. Also, stay tuned in the coming months for more from Patti’s house!
Patti’s French table in her breakfast room is set for an informal Thanksgiving lunch!
This setting is simple compared to most of my tablescapes, but simply elegant in my estimation! I used faux garland that Patti had and mixed with real and faux pumpkins!
Yellow quilted placemats were used to bring out the color in the Spode turkey dinner plates
The sterling silver is the “Prelude” pattern by International and belonged to Patti’s Mother. This pattern was introduced in 1939 and still remains in the top ten most popular sterling patterns- a true classic!
Such a sweet story behind this ceramic soup tureen. It was made by my Mother and given to Patti in the late 1970’s. Patti and I both love having these beautiful treasures made by my Mother’s very own hands!
The coffee mugs are also by Spode in the “Festival” pattern
Gorgeous cobalt blue wine glasses were a gift to Patti by her friend, DeVota. We love those kind of friends!!
Don’t you just love the cobalt stemware and how they play into the “wow” factor of the crystal chandelier?!
Thank you for reading and for being a part of our everyday living! And thank you, this week, for being a part of Patti’s everyday living!
We always love your comments!!
