Shasta Pine Cone Table

There were several pine cones left from Christmas tables so I worked them into just one more table!

Love the juxtaposition of fine china and pottery that I have used today.

The first thing I started with was the burlap table runner, a wooden pedestal bowl filled with pine cones, pine cone candle sticks and gold mercury glass votive holders.

I started layering with a woven charger, a gold rimmed pale yellow and white Hutschenreuther dinner plate. The next layers are a square Narumi Shasta Pine salad plate which I topped with a Boston Wharehouse double handled soup bowl that accentuates the brown in the salad plate.

The stemware is the Dollar Tree green.

Napkins are a brown/cream plaid held with simple wood napkin rings set next to the Oneida Louisiana flatware.

We have had so many overcast days it has been hard getting good photos.

Thanks for visiting today, do come again next time.

Rustic and refined tablescape, dear friend!!! I am, totally, smitten with your Narumi Shasta Pine salad plate!!!
Trying to find similar dinnerware pieces for our lower level Family Room here on my side of the Prairie is quite a hunt!!!
The pine cone candle holders are a perfect accent for your place settings!!!

I love this table, Marigene! The pine cone plates are wonderful and the brown soup bowls look perfect on top. I still have pine cones out,too, and I was happy to see your centerpiece and your candle holders. I just love this wintry look!

I love this table Marigene! Makes me want to pull up a chair and enjoy some food at this setting!

Good use of your pine cones for the centerpiece. Great little pine cones and pine branch plates. I always enjoy using my green dollar tree goblets. I am sure you had the same weather I had here today. Pretty cold and windy.

This is very much one of my very favorite tables, Mari. I love rustic along with some "pretty" and you certainly have that. It's also sort of "wintry"...just perfect! I'm ready to bring out those pinecones I packed away with Christmas stuff! ;-)

Lovely winter table, makes everything so warm!! Love the pine salad plates, perfect for this time of year. Tonight it is 1 degree out there, and I'm sure the wind chill is evil.....hugs....

Marigene, I adore the pine cone plates and would use this table setting off and on all winter!

Jacqueline said...

Your table is gorgeous and those Shasta Pine salad plates are stunning! The soup bowl is too! What a wonderful table for the winter cold!

I think your pictures are great! I especially love the last one.
I love, love your Shasta pinecone salad plates! Everything makes me want to pull up a chair and stay awhile!
It has been so cold here in Texas that your table warms my heart. I can see all your friends gathered around that table talking and having a good time.
Thanks for stopping by......
Blessings My Friend,

Warm and friendly! I'm ready for some soup! Love the pinecone dishes!

I will call this table rustic and elegant. The Narumi Shasta square salad plate with the pine cone design is to die for. It is perfect nestled onto the stack of beautiful china. Elegantly beautiful! The rattan chargers, burlap, pine cones (both in the bowl and the candle holders), and the warm brown of the soup bowl add the rustic touch to ground the settings like a modest table at a cottage in the country. I can visualize a hearth fire warming my back while I am sipping a hearty winter soup from brown crockery bowls. Perfect for a cold wintry day.

Really pretty, Marigene! The burlap runner looks exactly like the placemats I have from Pottey Barn! Live the pine cone plates.

Beautiful pinecone plates, Marigene. I love the whole table setting, as usual. Thanks for your birthday greeting to the twins...Christine

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

This is so pretty for winter, Marigene...I just love pinecones, too! Thanks so much for stopping by and for you kind comment!


I love, love this table, specially those NSP salad plates; they are gorgeous! The pinecone centerpiece is perfect for such a rustic and refined Winter tablescape.
Blessings all 2015, sweetie!

Your table is so appropriate for the weather I'm seeing outside today as it adds a touch of warmth and coziness.

Marigene - I love everything about this table. I live in Georgia, where pine trees rule! I have wanted pine tree dinnerware and glasses for some time, but I have never bought any. Now, when I get the urge, I will just look at your lovely table!! Love the runner and those great napkins. This is wonderful.

Love, adore, smitten with your Shasta Pine salad plates!!
With all due respect, I would love to see some of your gorgeous photos without the dark edges.
Happy New Year!!

Nicely done, Marigene! Reminds me of the northwoods where I live!

Love the pinecones! I could take some lessons on how to set a table from you-I am pretty hopeless at it!

Oh so very, very pretty! I am not only smitten with the pine cone plates, but I love their shape.
Beautiful combination of rustic and chic, perfect pick for a January Table Setting.
