Today’s tablescape conjures up so many images for me…

…graceful swans…

…and the glamor of the era of the silver screen.

It was an era of elegance and beauty.

My varied collection of pink Depression Glass is mingled with my
Mother-in-Law’s Lenox…

The glamour and elegance continues with a silken rose upon my
inlaid table.

My Nana’s footed Depression bowl, with matching spoon, rests upon
the silk runner, with leaves of silver, which was the inspiration of this

The new oval platter marries well with Nana’s Depression creamer
and sugar.

The detail of this new, albeit unmarked piece, adds to the elegance.

A lidded butter with pink Depression glass insert was a tag sale find
of many years ago.

Lovely Momma Swan tureen and…

Spring Bouquet

My youngest daughter received this Spring bouquet congratulating
her on her performance in our Community Theatre production. She
did a marvelous job!

It was the perfect match with this teacup.

Blueberry Limoncello Cooler
Welcome to the Tablescaper.
Copy (2) of IMG_1024
Throw open the doors and say goodbye to the winter blues and…
… celebrate this glorious weather with…
…a Blueberry-Limoncello Cooler.
It’s so fun to jazz up your table by using unexpected items, such as this cobalt urn (HomeGoods) as an ice bucket. Love how the little ice tongs hang on the handle!
This awesome wine cooler/tureen is from Bombay (sob, sob no longer around). I filled it with Trader Joe’s  flavored waters: Blu' Italy. They come in lemon, lime, and unflavored. They used to come in these beautiful blue glass bottles, but sadly they’re now just plastic. They also have delicious sparkling blueberry juice!
Nothing like a little salt with your beverage.
It killed me to buy this mint when I know that in a few short weeks it will be growing like a weed!
Happy Spring to you!

Glasses in shades of blue at the ready.
This screaming cobalt pitcher and the matching glasses were finally on sale at Pier One.
