It all started with a cakeplate

Hi Everyone!
I missed showing you my tablescape last week but I loved the centerpiece so much I saved it for today! I told you a few weeks ago I LOVE cake plates!
A cake plate, a few flowers, pretty leaves, a candle holder and potpourri.
That's it!

Welcome to my tablescape!
I love this round table..... I think because it is from my childhood. I remember it being in my parents cellar and playing school on it! My parents had it refinished years later. They gave it to me when we first moved to Chicago. I seem to set tables in here every week. One day I will surprise you and set it somewhere else! lol


Blue green chargers I bought at "Something Special". A store that supports battered women.

I bought these beautiful dishes at Goodwill in Buffalo, NY. I love them! I could only buy a place setting for two. they are Haviland china.

I love the two edges together......the green plate is from HomeGoods, Houston, TX. They are made by Artistic Accents.  



This is another favorite....the bowl is made by Bella Lux. The pattern is Alexandra Gold!

Here is the centerpiece.........

I took out the flowers so you could see the wax candle holder. My mother in love gave this to me. In the summer it melted. I would love to bring its shape back. Do you have any ideas?

I'm not sure why I used candles in the middle...Oh I remember now, I am a candle freak! I have to stop myself and not use candles every week! I have candles all over the house and light them everyday.

I hope you enjoyed my tablescape!

Thank you for visiting Sweetladyelaine, I appreciate your comments.


Blessings My Friend,


  1. Now this might sound strange, but I wonder if you could gently heat your wax cylinder with a blowdryer and coax it back into shape as it softens a bit from the heat? It would probably cool and harden pretty quickly after you remove the heat source. Might be worth a try. Like the sage green plates with the Haviland, one of my passions, of course. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Cherry Kay

  2. Beautiful table. Love the centerpiece, Elaine.

  3. Your cake plate is decked out so beautifully for fall!
    I agree with Cherry Kay~ try a blowdryer!

  4. Nothing wrong with using candles every week!!! I love candles, too. My husband, on the other hand, is scared to death any time he hears that Bic lighter flare up. Fire is not his friend! :-) I wish I could tell you what to do to restore the melted candle, but I'm with Cherry Kay. That may be the only solution. I really like the blue-green chargers. Very unusual and pretty color. I have some plates that would look great with those. Good find! Hope you're having a relaxing weekend and that all is right in your corner of the world. Take care!
