What, Another Tureen...



Another week and month have flown by...it is time for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Thanks for hosting this inspirational meme week after week, Susan.

You can enlarge any of the pictures just by clicking on them.


My inspiration this week was some red alstromeria that came in a lovely bouquet and a Goodwill tureen with a little red in the pattern. The flowers were starting to fade so I took out all the ones that still looked good, you may see more of them in a future tablescape, who knows.


This rather large tureen with matching ladle was $2.99 and is from the Home Collection at JCPenney. I really had no need for another tureen but at that price who wouldn't have put it in their cart?


I started with a white Damask tablecloth, red napkins, then added an over-sized black dinner plate which I am using as a charger plate, white dinner plate, black salad plate topped with a red soup bowl; all are solid color. The flatware is Oneida Sterling, Afterglow.


I was the lucky recipient of a CSN giveaway that Linda of A la Carte had back in the fall, if you have never visited her blog, you really should...so I used it to get these beautiful red water/iced tea/lemonade stems. It was free shipping, too! Thanks, again, Linda and CSN.


Plates layered.


Table overall.

I love it all -- great new glasses from CSN, but I loooove the new tureen. We don't have GW around here and our equivalent DI never has beautiful things like that -- it just sets off your table. Joni

This is a great tablescape, Marigene! The red looks so crisp next to the white tablecloth and the tureen and flowers are the perfect centerpiece! I love your CSN glasses...that place has the best things!

XO,

Fabulous tablescape again. I love the plate with the cookies. Of course, I am sure you remember, how much I love cookies and thought of your mom with each one I had at her service. Love, bbb

Tim Gronek said...

Another beautiful table as always. I love the reds. The black and white contrast well. I saw those sugar cookies and my stomach growled as well. Amazing what one can do with both treasures and bargains. Good job!

Marsha said...

Very beautiful once again Marigene. The color combo is beautiful and I really like the goblets you got with your CSN $$. Since you are using lots of reds/blacks lately, I can't wait to see what you do for Valentine's Day.

Pam said...

Can you ever have too many tureens? Not possible. And for $2.99 you have to buy it. Great tablescape - love the color combo on this one.

Flowers are beautiful. Wish I was there to share a coffee and cookie with you! I love it when you show your cooking skills as well. Rich (Toad)

Ginger said...

Another beautiful table! like the red scheme with Valentine's Day coming up!

Jack Canfield said...

What a very lovely table presentation. Love the color red which reminds me a few days before Valentines!

Carol said...

Beautiful table, Marigene, I love the red. It just pops! Great glasses! Nice win :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That is a great Tureen! I can see how it inspired this tablescape. Love the layers of plates. How can you go wrong with black, white and red. Love the stemware, glad you got those with the CSN GF! I need to start buying myself flowers once in awhile...so pretty! hugs, Linda

Sherrie said...

Of course you had to get the tureen. For that price, at Goodwill of course, how could you say no. It is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Annie said...

Love the tureen! Are the flowers 3D or are they painted? They look 3D.

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

Why, of COURSE you needed that pretty tureen! What an amazing price, too! I love the way you've let it command attention by using solid colors for everything else. Wonderful shapes in that rim shot of the stacked plates!

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

The table is wonderful Marigene! Thattureen is so pretty! I really love it!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

What a pretty red table. I think the GW tureen and stemware are beautiful!

From the Kitchen said...

The red in your Tablescape is warming my blizzard chilled heart. Yes, indeed, you needed that tureen--and maybe a few more.

Best,
Bonnie

Sherry said...

What a beautiful soup tureen. I love all the red for Valentine's day. The goblets are just beautiful.
Sherry

Natasha said...

Another fabulous table! The colours are wonderful but I am really impressed with your new tureen. I can't believe it was only $2.99!

Best wishes for a happy Thursday,
Natasha.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Marigene, Your table is so elegant and I can't believe that price on the tureen!! Is that a typo???? I would not have left it there either. I am looking for a tureen but I haven't seen any at that price, even in Homegoods! Have a nice evening and stay warm! Linda

Kathleen said...

2.99 of course I would buy it!
Too funny we both used the same colors this week!
Love your reds, and glasses are so pretty.
I didn't realize you won a CSN from Linda too. Lucky you!
Very pretty table, M!
I saw your town on TV...11 in of snow. I am so done with snow!

Foley said...

My gosh - wish we has a decent Goodwill store in our area!! The tureen is beautiful, has so much charm.

Alycia Nichols said...

Seriously...you have such a great collection of tureens! I only have 4, but I love them. They just have "a look" about them!!! You're a good bargain shopper, Charlie Brown! :-) Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier this evening. Take care!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Beautiful tablescape, love the red, white and black!

At that price I would have brought home the tureen too! You can always put soup in it! LOL!

Beautiful tablescape! Love all the bright colors and the tureen is very pretty...Christine

Debbie said...

Tureens have a warm spot in my heart! If I had a huge house, I would collect them :-) Great find!

I love your red stems!

As I told you before, there is rarely anything decent at the Goodwill. I think it gets picked over immediately before I get there!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

What a great tureen! It would have jumbed in my cart as well!

the passionate hairdresser said...

Gorgeous!!! The tureen is beautiful!! Alostromeria are one of my favorite flowers, too... :)

Pretty, Marigene! I love your soup tureen!

Debbie Moore at Slice of Pie Entertaining and Cookbooks said...

I'm finally getting around to see all the tablescapes! Thanks for dropping by to visit my site ... and for the sweet comment about my mother. Truth is ... everything about her life with Alzheimer's made me sad ... and mad ... at the time, but now I have to find some humor in it now. She's probably doing the same.

Now, about your tureen. I have one ... with matching pieces. It was a part of the Christmas line that JCPenny had probably 15 years ago! I even have canape knives that match the line. You got a real bargain!

Barbara said...

What a lovely new tureen! I love the red, black and white color scheme. It is such a pretty table!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Marigene, I definitely agree - who could pass up that tureen at that price!! What a deal. I love your red goblets. I've been looking for some. Guess I'd better check CSN. Your red, black and white color scheme looks so pretty. laurie

Entertaining Women said...

If I had gotten to your GW first...that tureen would have been in my cart....boy, were you lucky that I live to the South of you. Your tablescape is wonderful...great new goblets. Thank you for sharing your lovely design. Cherry Kay

Miss Merry said...

What a wonderful find! I can't believe it. Someone must have received an unwanted gift. It is just gorgeous and is a wonderful focal point for your table.

A Hint of Home said...

Your dishes are very pretty layered that way. Love your stemware! What a great deal on the tureen.
Thanks for visiting me today and for your sweet comment.

bj said...

Fabulous! Did I ever tell you that black and white and red is my favorite combo? :))

I love your table setting. My favorite color is red, of course. Everything looks beautiful!

Custom Comforts said...

I love your red lemonade glasses that you got from CSN. They are the gems of the table. The soup tureen is gorgeous and what a great deal. Isn't Goodwill the best! I was just there myself last night and came home with lots of treasures. Newest follower.
