I have some more tablescape pictures from the County Fair. The tablescape show room is the very first place I stop by each year I visit the fair and I have never been disappointed. I think I inherited this hobby from my grandmother. She had a true passion for setting her table and it looked just perfect when we had company over for a meal. She loved entertaining and was a very good host. She always focused on the details and once it was all perfect, she'd open a bottle of liquor, "so that our guests can relax and enjoy a good meal," she would say. I was only eight years old but already enjoyed looking at an awesome table.
This is my Grandmother's tea set and gravy boat that my lovely sister was able to obtain. Although my sister only got part of the set, it's a lovely set, nevertheless:
It totally reminds me of Mozart and Beethoven. I can just hear Fur Elise in the background.
The rest of the pictures are from the County Fair.
I did not get to write down the names of the designers, I do apologize. But, if you had to walk around with a husband and two little ones, who all they wanted to do was go on rides and the LAST thing they wanted to do was look at tablescapes, you'd understand. They all had this face, mind you, this is after I asked nicely to say cheese!
Now back to the tables, I love the black boots in the middle of this table and the beautiful black doll sitting on the little chair opposite the boots:
I didn't care much for the three doll babies on the top stair but I LOVED my black doll with her curly black hair and my little blond doll that could walk when I moved her arms. You can kind of see in the picture that she's taking a step.
"let's not forget the pearls!" gramma would say.
Quite a few of the tables were accessorized with shoes! yes shoes! I can just see my stilettos working the table.
Here's an Alice in Wonderland table. This feels more like the original Alice in wonderland:
and don't forget to visit all the Pink Ladies. Bevery at How Sweet The Sound is hositing a fun Pink Saturday Linky party:
