Villeroy and Boch Purple Sensation...Tablescape Thursday

Photobucket

I am fortunate enough to have a little Villeroy and Boch Store in town. I am not fortunate enough to afford to shop upstairs, so I head straight for the bargain basement and wait for the sale!

One of my buys was Purple Sensations..Only 2, but usually that's the number of diners at my table...
The lighting today is not good, so these pics aren't the best...

The flowers on the plate are purple and pink..so my flowers are Baby's Breath with purple and pink dianthis..

The Pink water glass is from Lenox, and the Purple wine is from TJ Maxx. The pink napkin with a sprig of Baby's breath is held by another Villeroy and Boch basement bargain, it is purple porcelain.

There is a green stem so I used the little cabbage leaf bowls sent to me by my friend Susan from Savoring Time in the Kitchen. Perfect for a dinner roll and butter from the little butter dish from WmSonoma..


The purple "toiley" pitcher is a gift from my friend Barbara.

The silver chargers are from WMSonoma Outlet..
I got them the time I met Doug Wilson from Trading Spaces fame on TLC...It was a dreary winter day and only about 3 people in the store! He was standing right next to me, so we chatted a bit, and you will be so proud..I didn't ask him for an autograph.
DH was checking out the kitchen electrics, and when I excitedly told him of my encounter, he said, "Who's he?" No fun..:(
I have been told he has a house near here, as I saw him again in the Pier One near me...Big deal, I know..:) I am easily amused..

I used a pink and purple mat, $1 each from The Christmas Tree Shop, over a sheer white cloth. It is actually a window scarf I folded in half that I got for a song...
Oh, the dishes..about 2.00!

DH made fresh blueberry apple muffins this morning..it sure makes the kitchen smell heavenly while they are baking..

*******Summer arrives June 21st...get out your summer whites! So many of us have WHITE dishes, I was wondering if you would be interested in a WHITE event..white tablesettings, flowers and foods.. Hey, vanilla ice cream is white, and lots of other things too...anything having to do with food or tables to show us your whites.
Carol, no, your whitening toothpaste won't do!

I checked with Susan, and it won't be on a TTH..so if you think you might join in, just let me know and I will find a date later in June....

Thanks for your visit, and please go see all the other entries on Susan's beautiful blog, Between Naps on the Porch...

  2. I really like the purple sensations - alliums are one of my favorite flowers - I have the seed heads drying in wine bottles as my patio centerpiece these days.

    Your tablesettings are always so great and I love how you pull all the colors together using the cabbage bowls to highlight the green stems. Your fresh centerpieces always make me smile - Another great one! I've known you for quite awhile...have I ever seen the same exact table twice?...I don't think so ;)

  3. Kathleen, I heart alliums :-) I think those plates are wonderful!

    You must be so organized with all your different tablesettings. I know it is a fun hobby for you, and I look forward to having the time some day.

  4. My husband would not know Doug Wilson either. I love that your husband made muffins for you. So sweet. Now the white table idea sounds like fun and I could go to my daughters house and play with her white PB dishes. I like your dishes today and your header too. I have one set of dishes so I can't play along but I enjoy viewing. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Well, you are sure sounding casual about your meetings with Doug Wilson! How cool! And how nice to know he shops in the same places where you shop! Your tablescape is so pretty. Those dishes are so unique. I love the purple and pink flowers and the way you matched your flower colors to them. Those wine glasses are incredible. The white event sounds like fun. I'll start thinking about it. laurie

    What fun -a white event! I'm in. Love the puroke wine glassess--I always stop at the V & B store near you whenever I am in town! TJ Maxx and WS always have the best little odds and ends that can make a table look great! Yours looks fabulous! Have a great day!

  18. I love the plates! Great deal. And I love your "toily" pitcher. I would be all "giddy" to see Doug Wilson too. And my hubby wouldn't have a clue who he was either. Thanks for visiting my tablescape & leaving me a comment.

  26. I'm sorry I'm late chiming in! I visited the other day and must have gotten distracted by something and THOUGHT I had left a comment!

    I love the allium dishes! Perfect timing as mine are blooming right now. You are my shopping idol! I'm sure if I lived near you we'd bump into each other in the same stores but you wouldn't be even thinking about asking for my autograph - LOL). The wee cabbage bowls are summery too and I'm happy to see them finding a spot on your table ;)

    Count me in for the white event - more summer fun!

  28. Oh your purple sensations dishes are absolutely gorgeous. Such a beautiful tablescape. I love the way you mix things and always highlight your colors so perfectly. I think the white table sounds like a super idea. Let me know the exact date and I will play too. It should be a lot of fun. Also, be sure to join the Cloche Party (other containers also accepted) on June 19th. Hugs Marty.
