Tablescape Thursday at My Sister's House

I really enjoy visiting
It is hosted by Susan at
Between Naps on the Porch.
If you visit her site, you will enjoy 'touring'
her beautiful home.

This Thanksgiving,
we were at my sister & brother-in-law's house.
She was happy to have me post her beautiful table setting for

Doreen has the most beautiful dishes.
They are Portmeirion "Botanic Garden" Dinnerware. 

I love her coffee server and the gorgeous patterns of nature.

She also had fun dishes with little treats everywhere.

Here is a closeup of the coffee server.

Doreen and Barry are two of the best cooks in the family.
Everything looked and tasted incredible.

Portmeirion would make even my cooking look marvelous!

Bon Appetit  everyone!

including her magnificent "Twas the Night Before Christmas" tablescape!

Maria, Thank you for stopping to visit. I am glad I am not the only one who carries my camera everywhere! I am always saying," I have a blog, may I take some pictures." My poor family- it has become my mantra!
Also, your blog is just lovely.
The thanksgiving table is beautiful- portmeirion is one of my very favorites.
Thanks for the peek at the Pier One Christmas dishes. They are lovely.
BTW- when you strike that perfect ballance please share your secret. Prayer is the one thing that helps me.
So glad to visit.
