Hubby says "A Sophisticated Tablescape"

Time for Tablescape Thursday at Susan's. I was putting some dishes AWAY and my husband said, " Are you doing another tablescape?" I said, "No, I did one, did you see it?" He says..."oh, you mean the sophisticated one?"

OK...sounds like a good title, better than my Black, Brown, White and Gold Tablescape!

My hubby took this picture...he is much taller than me.

I really love brown, black and gold together, especially in this house, because the great room area are all in those colors. Candlesticks are brushed bronze from Kohls over 3 years ago. I have never been sorry I bought them. I think they are just stunning and use them so many ways.

I picked up just two sets of this plate, saucer and cup from HGs a while back on clearance.

Under the salad/dessert plate, I have just a plain brown plate on my black chargers.

Here is the cup and saucer. Love when the flowers are in the cup!

These are the little glasses I got for $1.00 at an antique store in Prescott a few months back.

I just put the good fancy orbs inside my cloche...all the right colors!

The darling pitcher is from Heidi from Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly last Valentine's Day swap.

The honey spoon hooked on the cup.

Here is that sweet creamer and sugar. I use these a lot for just the two of us!

These are the hand forged napkin rings I just got from our Payson trip.

I just love them...I love that look!

Close-up of the napkin. Bought at Anna's linens with Kathy almost 2 years ago!!

Love candlelight...

The candles are "swirled", well, not really, with gold flecks. Target Christmas clearance.

I am so anxious to see all the other lovely tablescapes. I will do my best to get to you all this week...but I am not at "top notch"...so please be patient. Thanks for all the prayers. I SOOOO need them.

This is gorgeous! I love what your husband named it - sophisticated! Isn't it neat that our hubs are getting into this with us! LOL!

Those heart napkin rings are just the cutest and perfect for this tablescape!

Great job!

Ceekay, you always do the most beautiful tablescapes. I LOVE those dishes. How beautiful. YOur candlesticks are stunning too. Well, I just think it's all stunning, the colors the patterns and all of it. I hope you feel better soon. I will keep you in my prayers. Hugs, Marty

Sue said...

How funny that your husband is getting into the swing of things...Mine always asks..."What's the next table decoration your going to do"...who knew they actually pay attention to anything!! But does your husband think your blog friends are imaginary? the table is lovely...very fall looking...As for shopping...when the fan crashed on the table and the husband saw Miss Maxine in pieces his first comment in the middle of the night..in the dark was...We'll hit up all the Walmarts tomorrow and see if we can find you a new one".....I thought that was nice.

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Perfect sophitication! Those are such rich and fabulous colors all pulled together so nicely. I truly love the OVERALL look, but you know what I'm coveting? Those gorgeous glasses you found for $1 each. Don't you love that!! What pretty napkin rings too. I really enjoyed my visit here tonight, Ceekay. :)

I just love your sophisticated tablescape. It's beautiful. You have a way of putting things together. I really like how you decided to serve the cheese. So pretty. Your heart napkin rings are really pretty.

Sarah said...

Creekay, the layering is lovely! My favorite is the heart shaped napkin ring. Just great!
Hope to see you at Hyacinth For The Soul for some rooster fun and a toast to Julia Child.

KBeau said...

Sophisticated is a very appropriate term for your table. It's just beautiful.

Michelle said...

Lucy you to have a brown tablecloth, they are not easy to find. Love the napkins and napkin rings!

nannykim said...

I love brown dishes--or designs in brown. I don't think I have any--except for a pie dish. Pretty sugar bowl too! Those glasses were such a nice find and only a dollar, wow! (Ps. I am from Spindle Cottage---but I have many blogs--the spindle cottage blog is going to be mainly for tablescapes and photos dealing with home stuff --

Joyce said...

That honey spoon is adorable the way it hooks onto your cup. Did you buy that spoon recently and if so where did you purchase it?

Mrs. P. said...

Oh, I just love the orbs and the honey spoon. Such a beautiful table!

Great tablescape, no matter what it is called...although it is sophisticated...maybe with a touch of whimsy.

Ashley ~ said...

Everything looks lovely, and your hubby sounds like a gem*!!!
I hope you are feeling better and able to enjoy yourself before doing the nasty stuff again. (cringe) ((hugs)) _Ashley*

Brenda said...

Ceekay, it's all so pretty and he's right! I LOVE those goblets you got so cheap. And the napkin rings are really something else! The pitcher, yep, love that too. Love it all, girl! Hope you feel better soon.

Shelia said...

Oh, Ceekay! How pretty is your table. Those dishes are so beautiful. Everything is so lovely.
Now you take care of yourself and try to get some rest while I'm gone. I'm hoping I'll have some internet where I'll be traveling so I can check in on you.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Linda said...

Ceekay, this is just so lovely..very elegant. I love little cups with the design carried inside the cups too, in fact when DD and I go to tea she has to select a tea cup with the design in the cup. Your napkins rings are the neatest and what a nice remembrance from your trip.
Take care, I hope with each day you are feeling better...hugs, and my prayers to you ...Linda

Leanne Helums said...

Hi Ceekay; I love your color combination, and your hubby is right, it does look very sophisticated... hope you feel better soon... thanks for sharing your table scape.


Mary said...

Everything is just beautiful! It is sophisticated and inviting. I keep seeing wonderful things from Arizona...I'm going to have to get down there and pretend to visit my relatives! Hope you are doing well.


Celestina Marie said...

Hi Ceekay, First off, I want you to know I keep you in my prayers always. I so hope you see better days soon.

I just love your tablescape. I too love these colors together and your display everything perfectly.
Your talents for color and placement are fantastic.

I hope you had a wonderful anniversary. I enjoyed reading your post and seeing your pics. You were such a gorgeous bride. So young and delicate. It is so cool that we were married just a week apart 36 years ago, and we meet in blogland.

Sending you a big hug and many prayers coming your way.
Take good care and thank you for stopping by too.

Blessings always, Celestina Marie

Hi Miss CeeKay, Love the brown and black and bronze. Very elegant and chic! Love the new napkin rings to. They are perfect for your table!


Kathleen said...

That is a lovely combination of colors, Ceekay. The whole table is lovely..the plates are so pretty and the napkin rings too!
Praying for you, C!

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

Hi Ceekay, everything is so pretty. I have been by a couple times to look but was a bit rushed so could not leave a comment. The table is just beautiful. It all just goes together so perfectly. Hope you have a good weekend, we are thinking of you!

dana said...

Your hubby was so correct in his label for your wonderful tablescape!! I also love those color combinations, CeeKay! They're classic. I did NOT know that was a honey spoon. See how smart we are becoming by reading blogs? I keep telling my husband that I'm not "playing"......"I'm learning!" I don't think he's convinced just yet! :)

I hope you're doing OK with the chemo you just received. I think about you lots and keep you in my prayers.

Hope you have a great weekend. L, Dana

I do love this tablescape, C! I remember the napkins we bought together at Anna's - I love mine too. Your new heart napkin holders are perfect. Those dishes are gorgeous and you've put it all together so beautifully, as always! You're still the queen!
love ya friend...Kat

Dining Delight said...

Very pretty 'scape! I love the brass candleholders and the red pillar candles! Great idea to put the balls in the cloche too.


Cass @ That Old House said...

Beautiful -- and hubby is right, it IS sophisticated. Lovely!

Beautiful, love the colors.

Bellamere Cottage said...

Hi Ceekay...

That little sugar and creamer are the cutest things EVER....your table looks just adorable...love it!

I hope you're feeling better soon too. I'm so sorry you're not "up to snuff"....Where the heck do you suppose that phrase comes from?

Hugs to you!
