Pears, Burlap and Greens at the Table

Yesterday I spent almost all day removing the gingerbread bar and all the snowmen from the kitchen and breakfast room, cleaning it all, then redecorating it all. I also had to set a new table to go with the new décor! I am featuring pottery, baskets and greens all over this space so wanted a pretty, but  simple table for us. I hope you like it too! I started with a beige tablecloth and layered a burlap runner over that.
 The stack started with a wicker placemat, a green square dinner plate, and embossed creamy plate and my green leaf bowls.
 A faux pear sits in the bowls.
 A burlap covered votive holder and a yellow pear.
 The centerpiece is contained in a low sided tray. I used a hurricane candle holder with a LED candle in it and a grapevine ball on top. The cloche sits on a bark slice and has a combo of the yellow and brown pears.
 It feels so clean and refreshed in here now, I am loving it.

 I love the simplicity of this centerpiece.

 I gathered 2 napkins; a leaf print one and a burlap TYPE napkin.
 Love the texture of the dishes and placemat.
 My wicker covered S and P are perfect.
 Clear bubble glasses are a staple.
 It's dinner time, let's light the candles! As you can see there is still snow on the ground but with temps going into the 60's today a lot will melt! I am ready for green grass and warmer temps!!!

 After I had the table set, I was downstairs looking for something and came across the pear dishes I have!
 I love these and am so glad I remembered them!

 Thanks so much for stopping by. I love it if you leave me a comment. Wishing you all a beautiful day!!!

I will be sharing here:
Tuesdays at Our Home


  1. Love your tablescape. It's perfect for spring! Your pear plates are absolutely adorable. Where did you find the realistic fruit? It's so hard to find some that is realistic.

    1. I found the brownish pears at an antique shop before Christmas. I happened to ask them if they had any and they did! The smaller ones are old so I don't remember where I found them:)

  2. Beautiful table as always Pinky...I love decorating with pears....and hope that the Ground Hog is right in that we will see an early Spring!

    1. Well, we are supposed to get MORE snow tomorrow into Wed.!!! UGH!

  3. Pinky,
    Did you know that pears are my favorite fruit to use in home decor???
    Yes, they are dear friend!!!
    I love how you've incorporated them into your centerpiece and table settings!!!
    I love the green lettuce/ cabbage bowls in your place settings!
    But, those pear plates are absolutely gorgeous!!!
    Would love a close~up of what's on your etagere!!!

  4. Very pretty setting for two, I totally get that refreshing feeling you describe. I love the cabbage bowls, and those pears just look so real. I finally got some of those gorgeous stemware you have shown after wanting some forever. So nice to visit with you again. Joining you from Tablescape Thursday.
