Table Top Delight!

     Each year an area furniture store hosts a fundraiser that is all about tables. Just my kind of party! There are always a few tables that are being raffled off for $5 a chance. Of course I never win, but it is fun to dream. I thought I'd share a few pictures, maybe you will find some inspiration. I know that one of them inspired something that I'm doing on my table...I'm not telling which one!

Awesome! I saw something similar to the evergreen on the Winter Wonderland one and thought it was as cool then as it is in that picture!

Wow so many lovely designs,I had never even heard of the concept of tablescapes until I started blogging. It has certainly given me some great ideas.

Sue said...

What a wonderful idea for a promotion. I'd love to see it but your pictures are the next best thing. I wish the idea would catch on and more stores would do it.

Pat said...

Wow, love these tables, Sue! Lots of inspiration.

Glad you got to go see the tabletops. I had my Garden Club Christmas party that night or I might have gone. I bought ALOT of my furniture there for The Daisy Inn. Great store.

Oh My Gosh Sue...
Sweetie what a beautiful post, and what fun I am sure you had going from table to table, clicking and viewing. I have to tell you though, that blue and silver, Momma made an arrangement for my table before she left, and it is blue and silver. My poinsettias are silver, with a blue bowl that we find while thrifting. I put it on my cake plate, and we scattered blue and silver balls around. I am going to show it after Thanksgiving. I sit at the table and know the love that was put into it. She is SO good with arrangements. You would love her.

From my home to yours sweetie, Happy Thanksgiving. I have spent the last two days sick with a bug of sorts, so I am not making Thanksgiving dinner this year. The kids all have their own homes now, and they are cooking at their own places, and DH and I are going out. We have been married 35 years in Jan. and I have cooked every single one of those holidays, but not this year. We are going to have a quiet meal together. I will fix a turkey this weekend for us to munch on, as we both love it SO much.

I can't wait to see which table gave you an idea, but I love the blue and silver, as it was already decided for me when Momma and I found the blue bowl and the gorgeous silver poinsettias. Do good minds think alike? Email me and share please.

Many hugs sweetie and SO much love. I am so thankful for your gift of love and friendship. Love, Sherry

OMGosh, Sue girl...this is a fabulous post. So many ideas!! I loved looking at every one of them and LOVE that S'Mores table. My kids would love that one. I'll have to do that for some special occasion. I also love the country one.

AND....your new blog dress is FABULOUS. Love every bit of it from the Sugar Castle to the silver and blues of the background. YOU DID GOOD. Now, you are going to be a HARD ACT TO FOLLOW. :))

Holy Crimoli, Sue...these tables hold a wealth of inspiration! I just enlarged 1/2 of them & now I need another cuppa hot tea so I can go back & finish drooling over the others.
Thank you SO much for capturing & sharing these shots. Wonderful eye candy for a dishaholic!!!
