Tablescape Thursday ~ Royal Stafford

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! Please visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to visit more tables .

This week I’m setting the table with my Royal Stafford Dishes with Country Scenes on them. I bought 8 dinner plates and 8 salad plates from Marshalls. The dinner plates were $3.95 each and the salad plates were $2.95 each.


I bought the goblets at Goodwill and they cost me $3.00 for all 4.




I layered the black and white polka dot napkins and used the pearl napkin rings I bought at Target clearance a couple years ago.


Thank you for visiting me here and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate all my visitors and new bloggy friends.


Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  9. I always enjoy your beautiful tables, Ellen. Kim is right; this one is stunning. Just have to say that I love these plates—I have them in red/rose. When I saw them at Marshall’s I just about hyperventilated, then ran to get a cart so I could grab ’em. Transferware makes my heart pound!

    Your tablescape looks so regal fit for the royals for lunch! (Or dinner) I remember that deal you got on those goblets… WoW and the transferware! I’m stunned. Really pretty adding that splash of yellow!

  15. I love your black and white tablescape, it so elegant! There’s just something about black and white decor that I like. I saw your dishes yesterday at T.J. Max and they’re really nice! I had to force myself not to spend any money- what was I doing in a store anyway? :O) Mary @Boogieboard Cottage

  17. Ellen, this is beautiful!! I have some of the same dishes. Thank you so much for your kind words on our new blog. Allie is SO excited to see that people read it!

  18. You got a great deal on these dishes! I don’t own any but would love to start a collection. I don’t know which color I would choose though…mmmm maybe a few of each color?!

    Love the crispness of the black and white.

  19. This tablescape is PERFECTION! I love every bit of it, and I cannot believe the bargains you got on some of those treasures. Also, the tablecloth is so unique and pretty. I love this! laurie
