A Plaid Winter Table

A Walk in the Countryside: Winter tablescape with plaid blanket
I think we’re about to float away down here in Louisiana!  It seems like it has been raining for weeks!  I wanted some branches for a centerpiece but it was just to wet to get outside!

I draped the table in this beautiful wool throw that I found at Goodwill.  I love the blue and green plaid.  The label on it says it was made in Scotland. I haven’t got to use it a lot because it makes you warm and toasty quick and down here in Louisiana, it just doesn’t get that cold.

I was also happy to be able to use my new napkins from Pottery Barn!  They were marked down last week to $11 for a pack of 4!  I picked up some additional things but wished I could have gotten more!

I really stacked the dishes this week!  Starting with rattan chargers (Wal-Mart), white ironstone chargers (Homer Laughlin), green leaf majolica plates, blue speckled salad plates (Mikasa Ultra stone Blue) and white ironstone bowls (Buffalo China).  The chargers brought a different texture to the table while the white dishes lightened it up!

The little covered dishes are from Hobby Lobby. They were actually part of their Christmas d├ęcor and I got them for a $1.10 each….I wish they would have had more!

The bottle trees are from last year’s Pottery Barn collection and the antlers belong to my husband.

  1. What a great idea to use the throw, Tammy! It really sets a winter mood for your table as do your new napkins. I love how you layered the dishes, too! Beautiful!

    I hope your rain lets up soon. We have had no snow here in the upper Midwest and it's very odd!


  2. Wonderful idea on the throw. I like to use them also.
    A very pretty table to enjoy on a Winter's day. No snow here either.
    The dishes are lovely together. It's fun layering different patterns.

  3. Love the plaid. I have to start thinking out of the box for things on the table like that. And those napkins are beautiful!

  4. You've created a gorgeous winter table Tammy!
    The beautiful plaid natural fibre throw woven in Scotland is the perfect base and I love how you've brought out the colours in your china.
    It echoes a highland hunting lodge and I would love sitting here, sharing some world renowned southern hospitality with you!

    Wishing you a JOY filled 2013 and thank you for being part of my blogging journey during last year!

  5. I love your deer napkins and the antlers! It all looks simply beautiful!

  6. Great idea to use the throw as a tablecloth - looks perfect for the season! I LOVE those PB napkins and can see why you wanted more! They look so beautiful with your dishes and t'scape!


  7. What a beautiful rustic table! Love the throw. My son who hunts will love this....Christine

  8. Hi darling, I love your rustic table. It is so warm and inviting. Love the throw as a tablecloth, I've used that idea many times before, love the added interest.

  17. Hello, I could use that warm Scottish throw here in Utah where it is below zero right now. today I saw a deer on top of a snoy mountain peek. I slowed down to see it if itwas real or not. I love those new napkins of yours and love your stack of dishes. I need some of the Majolica. Love the little covered bowls too. Joni
