Tablescape Thursday ~ Condo Barscape Revisited

Time flies when you travel north and south! It’s almost Thursday again and time for some more Tablescaping fun. I’m re-showing two variations on table settings at our bar in our little condo. I haven’t had time to think about new settings yet in this new year in my Southern California location. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is the hostess for this fun event. Click on over and see the variety of fun, romantic, elegant, practical table settings that have been created.


The chargers are from TJ Maxx clearance. I used my everyday white dinner plates and then added the salad plate that I found at Marshall’s on clearance. I love plates with country scenes on them. The martini glasses, that I use for pretty desserts, too, were from target a couple years ago.



I changed up the tablesetting at the bar with these square grey chargers and square white plates and a small decorative plates that are “White Russian” plates. I love the little cocktail glasses I found with the Russian Cossack dancers on them. The napkin rings were a gift from my DIL and Son Christmas 2008.



Now head on over to Susan’s for more Tablescape inspiration.

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.

  1. Ellen, Don’t you just love black and white? Your kitchen bar is all gussied up and very sheek. Black and white transferware is my favorite. I really need to find some of these dishes.
    Not one, but two choices this week. Very lovely square plates. I love the picture on the plate.
    What are those interesting and pretty lights? They have really gotten my attention!

  2. How fun to see all the different changes. I really love the black and white plates, I think I have some very similiar. I also liked the fun lady plates. Doesn’t it amaze you how one simple plate and change the whole look and feel of a placesetting. Thanks so much for coming by to visit me, and I’m glad I am not the only one to “revisit” a tablescape. *wink Blessings, Barb

  3. Hi Ellen B.,
    Welcome back to California! You always have the prettiest tables and I’m still wondering where you store it all ;-).
    I hope you have a great rest of the week…are you doing anything fun?
    I decided to cut back some hours from work…that’s fun to me!!!

    xoxo cori g.

  4. You are feeding my need to look at beautiful dishes–thank you, thank you! Oh, I feel better now. The chargers are superb with your dishes. And the salad plates? I adore them.

  5. I love both but am partial to the square plates. Love the lighting. The black and white is so pretty and is so different in both tables. Thank you for sharing.

  6. How stunning…the black and white! and I love it on the counter top!
    Your MAXX plates I loved in the store and even more in your scape!
    Beautiful, xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings…

  7. Went to TJ Maxx last night and their shelves were bare compared to how they usually are. Maybe because of inventory or some other reason. I love your setting.

  8. Two beautiful settings! Love the chargers and the black country scene plates. I rarely find things at Marshalls and TJ Max. Wonder if it is just our location or if I don’t go frequently enough. These are wonderful finds! Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah

  9. I just LOVE your plates and the square plates are something I have been wanting for a while waiting for them to go on sale at my fave store.

    How beautiful your place settings look……and I love your kitchen!!

  10. Both of these scapes are beautiful. I love the addition of the lights – just makes everything so festive. The country scene plates and the square plates give a totally different look. Those cocktail glasses are so unique. Do you know the brand name? I really like those. laurie
