Wine & Dine

I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Thank you, Susan, for hosting such a fun event & providing dishaholics everywherewith a weekly fix ~

 I thought I would wine & dine you this week with my new Vino Plates from Pottery Barn~

This set of four plates is inspired by French vintage wine labels. . .

 I’m also playing with corks, collected over the YEARS. . .

Red or White Wine, what’s your preference?

    Great table. The corks are just wonderful on the table. I especially like them around the candle.

    ♥ ♥ ♥ your new dishes…and the chargers…and the stemware!! Fun way to incorporate your cork collection into the table, Mary! I’m impressed.
    We save them too, but make them into trivets in wooden frames to use under hot dishes.

    Such a pretty tablescape! I love your collection of corks. I have seen them made into a wreath before, and I thought it was such a neat idea. The color of your goblets is just beautiful!

    What a wonderful setting! Those plates are just beautiful! I love all the corks a real “collection” never let them go….I dislike all the plastic corks and screw neck bottles of wine that are available now! Love the genuine thing!A wonderful place!

    Fabulous! I love your cork collection. I ‘ve amassed quite a few over the years, and they make wonderful decorations! I’m not sure whose bright idea it was to convert to screw tops on wine, but corks rule!!! Everything is just so pretty on your table including the green bubble goblets and the Vino plates from Pottery Barn.

    This is a perfect vineyard table! I absolutely LOVE this table!!!! Gorgeous colors and textures. I really love the plates with the corks! This would be my absolutely favorite table to sit down to!
    What a delightful stop!

    Great tablescape! I love all the old corks…all so unique. We gave all of ours to Don’s brother to make a ‘cork” board.

    Beautiful table! Love your new plates — I’ll have a glass of red please.

    Love the corks, what wonderful inspiration. Your table is quite amazing.

    I love those plates! I am planning a trip to America next year for my birthday…I can see I am going to have to bring an empty suitcase so I can hit shops like Pottery Barn!

    A lovely tablescape as usual!

    Best wishes,

    I don’t think that I’ve ever seen that many corks in one place. Brings to mind so many questions….should make for great dinner conversation. The table linens are lovely and the pull everything together quite well. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

    Very clever & smart idea with all the cork! Job well done.

    Am loving the green goblets. TO die for.

    Have a pretty Friday.

    Using wine corks as part of your tablescape is genius. Hope you don’t mind if I copy that idea because I have a huge bowl filled with them.
    Our boat comes out of the water next week as the season for boating is fast coming to a close. Makes me sad.

    What a beautiful table! I especially love that green narrow neck bottle with the corks in it. When I was a girl we used to get big ones (acid bottles) and have a glass cutter take the top off, and then we would turn the bottom of the bottle into all sorts of things… terrerium with tiny little pet frogs in them, fish tanks, etc.. But I don’t think my parents have any of those anymore.. they were probably considered too breakable and never got shipped back to the US when we moved.

    have a lovely weekend.
