White, White and More White!

Thank you so much for this fun table setting event Kathleen! Please visit her site at There will be a whole lot of beautiful tables I'll bet.

Here's my white on white dish tablescape. I love it!! But there's something missing. Oh . . . flowers. I added them later in the photos. It was breezy and I was having a heck of a time keeping the candles burning. I used up a whole book of matches.
(By the way don't forget if you click on my photos they will get bigger.)

There's those little birdies again!

Cups and saucers are from Goodwill. Go with everything! And, you know . . . . very cheap. (or I mean inexpensive)

My sterling silverware is Towle, Rambler Rose. My Godmother started buying me a piece for every occasion when I was born! I REALLY appreciate it now! I need a new silver box though. My old one doesn't seal well enough anymore.

Those lady golfers are probably wondering what on earth I'm doing over here. Such a pretty table, a camera on a tripod and I looked a wreck! I bet they wonder who's coming to dinner????

The crystal wines were a wedding gift I think. It's all kind of a blur!

This sugar spoon was my Mom's

This pretty sugar and creamer I found at T J Max for $3.99 each.

Look at these pretty little napkins. I got four of them at GW for $1.00. Well, really $.80 because I had a 20% off coupon for everything that day!

The sun is going down and no one is here but me!

Changed the napkins to inside the glasses.

I definitely like the napkins in the wine glasses the best.

White, silver and crystal looks beautiful by candlelite.

Let's face it, it's night and no one is coming!! That's OK, there wasn't any food anyway!!!
This was fun. Have a great Tuesday everyone. Time for bed!!


  1. Hi Shirley! Your table looks so pretty! The dishes are beautiful, and the napkins are lovely!
    Thanks for coming to the party...I love your lantern ..I just bought one...:)

  2. Your table setting is gorgeous and your backyard... It just took my breath away its so incredible... I just wanted to roll around on your green green lawn! Hope your week is going well... ~Really Rainey~

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous!!! I'm going to use this idea, sometime this summer!

  4. Oh what a beautiful setting! I like the tulip pattern on the TC, and the sugar and creamer is great! Terrific post!

  5. Gorgeous table! Your table setting looks so pretty on the light green cloth. I love that white hurricane candle holder and the table in candlelight is just beautiful.


  6. Your tablescape kind of looks like mine, outdoors, too. I love the look at dusk of the glow of the candles. Your yard is so pretty.

  7. The outdoor setting is just beautiful and the night shots are amazing. Love the little pieces from the sugar spoon to the bargain napkins!

  8. Oh the candlelight is so nice. You really have some great pieces there and the price is right. If anyone came they would just spill all over your lovely white table and you would have to get mad at them.

  9. Setting this lovely table outside with such a fabulous backdrop was a great idea. It is all so wonderful. The candlelight really sets a great mood!

  10. Fun post. Loved your sense of humor. And I love your tablescape. Your photos of it were spectacular.

  11. Such a fun post...I love your table and the night shots are fantastic!!

    Shelia ;)

  13. Beautiful whites! I love your table day and night! Enjoyed your post!

  14. Those napkins were quite a find! Your table is so nice and serene. Don't you just love finding treasures at GW?

  15. Love your casual white garden tablesetting. I think I have those same glasses..also a wedding gift! Love the evening shots :-)

  16. Hi Shirley! I just now noticed that silver spoon. I didn't notice it in your post before. I think I was just so memorized by your incredible table in the yard! Anyway... I have no idea what the name of the flatware is... I got it from a neighbor when I moved into my new house... I kid you not... its engraved with an "S" and she said her name begins with a "K" and she liked me! So she gave me the whole set!

  17. I smiled when I saw your table and chairs. I recently saw a similar set, and contemplated it. What a lovely setting!
