A Lakeside Table with Pfaltzgraff Villa della Luna Dinnerware


I’m lakeside at the table with the vibrant collection of Villa della Luna Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff.


Villa della Luna by Pfaltzgraff was created as a magical collection of dinnerware and accessories based on the art of Jana Kolpen and Mary Tiegreen in Dancing with the Moon, a Story of Love at the Villa della Luna’. The centuries-old traditions of Italian ceramics are honored in the colors, designs and craftsmanship of every piece.


 Villa della Luna fleur bowls have a warm terra cotta interior, filled with an assortment of decorative pasta for the table.



A tablecloth with a stylized paisley pattern provides a foundation for the table, with a similar acanthus leaf found in the border of the Villa della Luna plates and mugs.


Cheery Sunflowers, synonymous with Tuscany, fill an urn as a centerpiece along with some Purple Statice, also known as Sea Lavender, that might be found growing on the rugged Italian coast near Villa della Luna in Dancing with the Moon.


Peach lilies with yellow accents (Inca Ice Alstroemeria) join coleus and loropetalum, clipped from a planter and shrubs to add some burgundy accents and filler in the centerpiece.


Chargers in a terra cotta shade frame the dinnerware while plaid napkins add some additional pattern and color to the table.


Capri Frost flatware by Pfaltzgraff has a scalloped handle to pair with the chargers.




Villa della Luna dessert bowls are also conveniently sized for serving condiments, dips or snacks.



Acrylic tumblers are available and lightweight, designed for durability for easy summer entertaining. . .


Along with a Melamine Serving Bowl.

    Mary, what a beautiful tablesetting and dinnerware! I feel as if I have sat at a lovely table in the hills of Tuscany! I love all the vibrant colors, makes my heart sing!

    Bella, Bella, Mary!! Since I’m 1/2 Italian, and that part comes out the most, I love your table..the vase you have is surely direct from Italia!!! Those plates would look a lot better with a big helping of my spaghetti & meatballs or lasagna and a caprese salad…LOL!! Actually, those plates are beautiful just like they are…thanks for sharing!!! 😍❤️😍❤️

    I always love your tablescapes…you are the queen , but I wonder if you keep all those dishes? I have lots too, but storage is a problem. Please tell what you do with them when they aren’t gracing one of your lovely tables.

    SO beautiful Mary – as always!! Thank you so much for inviting us to this beautiful table!! :-)

    makes me feel like I am at the Mediterranean. So very ‘under the Tuscan sun”.

    Villa della Luna is one of my favorite dishware collections Mary, I purchased some after seeing it on your blog several years ago when the Novel Bakers were reading “Dancing with the Moon.” I fell in love with the colors and bold pattern and have been amazed by how versatile this pattern is! I would have never dreamed to pair it with a patterned cloth, but it looks great! Your centerpiece is just perfect with it as usual :) I haven’t seen the chargers, dessert bowls and the plastic pieces, they must be new? LOVE the cobalt glasses! Happy week,

    Stunning tablescape! The colors are so beautiful! And I love your uninvited guests, they are adorable!

    What a lovely way to start my day – a gorgeous table in front of a beautiful lake, much better than the gray skies outside my window. Thank you for lifting my perspective.

    oh I absolutely love it! The colors are just beautiful!!!Your uninvited guest..too funny.

  11. July 25, 2016 at 8:47 am

    How on earth you are able to create tablescape after tablescape, each one so unique & different from the last just amazes me, Mary! I adore blue & yellow together (have a quilt in mind to make out of those colors).
    Only YOU would think to find a tablecloth with a similar acanthus leaf found in the border of the Villa della Luna plates…just beautiful!!!

    You can so easily transport us with your tablescapes, and I love that. The geese, on the other hand, I despise. We chase them constantly from our riverbank (sorry to those who may love them, but when you’re faced with their immeasurable amounts of waste, you’d soon grow tired of their presence, too).

  13. July 25, 2016 at 9:12 am

    Visiting you, I’m always able to be taken away to some dreamy destination, Mary! Your tablescape is stunning with that pretty dinnerware, and your bouquet of flowers in the urn is spectacular. I loved your photo with the ducks in the background, swimming in the water. However, I can understand why you can’t eat at your pretty table with your uninvited guests that show up!

  14. July 25, 2016 at 9:21 am

    Amazing how you can change up the same dishware collection and make it beautiful. The lake is the background is stunning. I love your flower arrangement!

    You really captured the look of Italy looking out over Lake Como in this picture. Wish I was having lunch at your table today…..

    Mary, I always love your table settings and other creative displays. I notice you use an oblong table cloth on your round table – what a great idea. Round cloths are hard to find in the right size and don’t stay “even” on the table. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration and the beauty you bring to everyday life! Keep it coming!!!

    Leave it to you to find pasta to match your dinnerware! Beautiful, Mary.

    Mary, I have only read the first book in this series, back when the Novel Bakers intrigued me by sharing it along with beautiful posts! Now I want to read the rest, sitting at a table with these gorgeous dishes and the amazing centerpiece you have created with your yard flowers! Everything is so bright and welcoming…no wonder Mr. and Mrs. Goose wanted to inspect it! Linda

  20. July 25, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Absolutely stunning! And, so inviting! Love it!

    Beautiful, as always! I so enjoy soaking in the beauty of your tablescapes and your home on the lake!

  22. July 25, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    I’m particularly fond of all this color and settings. But, I still wonder where-oh-where? do you put it all. As a dish hoarder, I can’t even imagine. Love the blue–especially in the shade by the lake, love it again, Sandi

    • July 25, 2016 at 4:45 pm

      Thanks Sandi! I don’t keep all my sponsored dinnerware, there is nowhere to store it all. :)

    Mary, I feel as if I’ve had a little get away to Italy. Your table is full of Italian beauty. Though it actually isn’t set in Italy, the lake side setting definitely fools the eye. The ambiance is certainly swoon worthy. The way you perfectly framed the table within the leaves of the tree could be a perfect book cover for the series.

  27. July 25, 2016 at 5:45 pm

    Ha, ha, I see you’re playing with some fun pasta too Mary! The kids enjoyed mine with dinner yesterday, I’m hoping to get another pack for later in the fall. Stay cool:@)

    As always, this table setting is beautiful!! The centerpiece is magnificent…….and perfect with the Villa della Luna dishes! You never cease to amaze with the loveliness you create and photograph so well!

  29. July 26, 2016 at 10:00 am

    This is a beautiful pattern! I love the colors and design. I have always LOVED that urn, it is gorgeous. Where did you find that? I am sure it was a long time ago. LOVE those chargers and will look at Pier 1 for them. Another beautiful table, Mary.

    Just beautiful–thank you for sharing. It’s a lovely setting by the lake for eating lunch or dinner. However, like you, I wouldn’t want to share it with the geese. The sunflowers add a sunny touch to the table.

    Love the colors, and that bluuue, just takes my breath away, so refreshing. So enjoyed the wildlife with their two young ones; what a delightful serene setting-just beautiful

    where can I find the plate chargers for the villa della luna set?

    • September 8, 2018 at 4:24 pm

      I found the chargers at Pier 1 a couple of years ago.
