Welcome to The Tablescaper. Life has been a bit crazy here. I have three children. Between yesterday and today, one was sent home from school with a head cold and the other two were diagnosed with bronchitis. So, between the multiple trips to the doctor’s office and pharmacy and having all three home, there was no time for tablescaping. Thankfully none of it is catastrophic, but it certainly sets life on a curve.
I don’t think I’ve ever missed Tablescape Thursday since I started blogging, so rather than missing I’m posting a table that I did for a benefit house tour a couple of years ago. Black certainly isn’t a color I think of for Christmas, but I think it turned out beautifully.
Pardon the quality of the photos. These were long before my current camera.
My most favorite room of the house was the kitchen!
The interplay of black and white toile with bursts of red enhance the coziness of the kitchen.
The black and white toile charger is the perfect frame to the red plate that encircles a snowy homestead.
Warm yourself by the hearth, with the modern conveniences built in right next store!
Ahh, the wonders of a gas fireplace. With just the flick of a switch you have the perfect combination of innovation and ambience.
Even the Santas don black and white toile.
A magical perch within the hearth.
A bear from Harrods must enjoy his porridge, even if it is in a New York kitchen.
What’s that coming out of the oven?
And now it’s time to bake!
It’s been such a lovely time.
I’ve been tweaking this picture, but it sure doesn’t do the room justice. Somehow getting the warmth of the room with the wreaths hanging about proved to be a photography challenge so you’ll have to deal with my amateur attempts to enlighten my darken photographs. I wanted you to feel the full warmth of the room
