Tablescape Thursday...What's for Dinner????

For the last few days I have been thinking about what to do for a Tablescape. I look at other tablescapes and they always are so beautiful. I wanted mine to be pretty too! So I went to my favorite stores and hunted to see what I could come up with to make my everyday dishes stand out!

I think the polka dot placemats are adorable!
Don't you???

I have had my Yorktowne dishes since 1977. I absolutely love them and never, ever get tired of them. In fact, I had a placesetting for 24 and just gave my daughter half of them.

Of course....I was afraid when my husband sat down he would frown because it was pink....but he was ok with it.
The glasses are Yorktowne made by Pfalzgraff. I have pretty much everything there is to have in that pattern. The flatware is Paul Revere made by Oneida. The vases I have had a long time. The flowers are from my neighbors porch. I watched her dogs today and decided they would look great in those vases, so I picked them! LOL!

Let's talk about dinner....
Can you guess what's for dinner?????



Alfredo Sauce

Did you guess???????????

I love broccoli chicken alfredo!!!!!!

I should tell you this is not what I was plannning for dinner!
This tablescape just seemed perfect for this dish.

Thank you, Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday! Please make sure you visit as many tablescapes as you can. I love seeing all the new ideas! 

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday...stop by again!

       BLESSINGS MY FRIEND!            


  1. You are absolutely right, those placemats really make the table pop. And I'm hungry for pasta now!

  2. Your pink placemats are so cute! A very cheerful table!


  3. Sweetladyelaine, the pink on your table is so cheerful, the placemats with polka dots as much as the geraniums. The plates and glasses and flatware are all so nice decorated.
    Really summerly.
    Greetings, Johanna

  4. I have always loved that Yorktowne pattern, too -- so classic! How fun that you also have the glassware and so many matching pieces! The pink mats and flowers really pop on your table. Thanks for your visit!

    looking so yum-o! :)

  7. Hello there, thanks so much for commenting on my blog. You tablescape was so sweet and warm. And let me tell you the pics of your pasta procession were wonderful. Ive never had that with alfredo sauce, usually just add parmigiano cheese.

  8. Love the pink polka dot place mats. So cheerful and happy. Your dinner sounds really good too!

  9. Yummmm! I am smiling at your things. We were probably picking out the same things in the same year. I had that identical dinnerware. I lost some of the pieces over the years and didn't have much to begin with. It is all gone but somewhere there is a little tea set that my daughter had that matched. I also have that flatware. It is still going strong. The pink makes everything pop.

  10. Your table is the polka dots and pink. Dinner looks delicious. I can't think of anything better!!!

  11. Those bright pink polka dot place mats just make everything pop! So pretty!

    The chicken broccoli Alfredo looks yummy!

  13. Your table is so pretty, I love your dishes! Mary

  14. oh i love the pink. I have the lime green ones.. and the pink and blue is adorable. Your pasta looks delish!

  15. So glad I came by to see your tablescape with awesome food!!!

    The food looks delicious and wish I could sample it!

    Your lovely dishes grace your table with presence that delights the eyes.

    Thank you for stopping by to take a peek at my table. It sure is fun tablescaping and seeing what everyone is doing to set a table.

    Have a great week-end and God bless,

  16. I had Yorketown and the Paul Revere flatware too. They look great together. Most of my Yorketown broke, but I still have the serving pieces. I love the canisters, and the mixing bowls. They look so classic I won't get rid of them. I really like them paired with the pink! Very nice.
    Have a great weekend!

  17. Ohhhhh I love your little tablescape with all the pink. The darling little vases with your neighbor's flowers are lovely. I really like the look of lots of small containers all clumped together for a centerpiece. I'm reading previous posts so I can get to know you, you delightful ladybug. xx's Marsha
