Inspiration at the Table...

J'adore Tablescape Thursday... it is filled with INSPIRATION... not only do I wish to sit at all the tables... but they make me want to PAINT!!!

Look at this table via Affordable Accoutrements... don't you want to take a big bite out of one of those strawberries... and sip a little bubbly...
I love all the elements that make a table just right... serviceware...
Glasses for any beverage...
Plates... soooo many patterns to choose from...
Silverware...

Linens in a variety of colours...Alll sooooo EXCITING... and when it comes together on YOUR tables it is overwhelming... thank you all for making Tablescape Thursday such FUN!!! If you would like to see one of your tables painted... send me the link to YOUR favorite table... I just might pick YOURS to paint! I've already started another one... next Thursday I hope to have a bunch to show!

Okkk off you go to visit other Tablescape Thursday via Between Naps on the Porch and come back tomorrow for a day of FASHION...

ENJOY your day!

Hi again Fifi,

You and I both seriously need to go to one of Karl Lagerfeld's dinner parties together, read what he said he would love to do on his twitter page,

Karl Lagerfeld on twitter said:

"I think I'm going to have a dinner party where no one speaks. I'll give all my guests pens and pads instead of the usual dinner conversation"

It would be so perfect for us as you communicate so beautifully via paper and brush and I carry an art book every where I go, always have always will...

Do you think he would invite us to dinner?

Gosh, What should we wear?

xx Coty

Oh, Fifi! Bill is going to absolutely fall head over heels for that painting! It is wonderful, and so are you and Bill! He is one of my favorite bloggers so I'm thrilled that you picked his tablescape. He's just the quintessential gentleman! :-)

Has anyone told you today how talented you are? If not, let me be the first! I just wish I had something that I felt worthy of a painting, but when and if I ever do, I will definitely come running!

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Oh, Fifi! C'est magnifique!!!

I'm honored and delighted that you selected my little table as the subject of one of your wonderful paintings! Your interpretation is fresher than the strawberries I served that day (and they were perfect!).

Thank you so very much! You've made my day ... my week ...

Avec reconnaissance,
Bill

Oh, so you might be willing to paint the tabletop of a mere layperson? Guess I'll have to stop eating in front of Netflix and set the table one of these days!
