  1. I think you posted about this event a previous year, Tatyana, because I remember thinking how much I would like to attend. I would not like to be a judge, however -- every one of the tables is magnificent. I like the way you interspersed table pictures with garden photos. P. x

    1. Thank you, Pam! I believe it's my 4th or 5th showcase, and I think it gets more interesting every year. Usually, I look at the tables and then, walk through the garden. It became a tradition for me, and I love it!

  2. I love the look opt the twiggy chargers. Guests would need to be forewarned not to wear long, filmy sleeves, though. The grounds upstage everything, in my opinion.

    1. Rickii, I love those charges! The grounds add a lot to the showcase, I agree.

  3. So beautiful, I love the pictures of the tablesettings with the green and autumn colours of the gardens on the background. What to say of so many Christmas tables, the one is even more beautiful than the other. Should like to go there, haha.

  8. Tatyana, what a treat, both indoors and out! The tablescapes were amazing, and I was pleasantly surprised to see my own china pattern featured in one of the displays, though it was not my favorite. My favorite is perhaps the stunning china nestled upon birds' nests. That is unique and appeals to my love of nature, through I also loved some of the traditionally elegant ones.

    1. Deb, thank you so much! I'm wondering which pattern you have! Those plates are exquisite and I like them too!

  9. Tatyana, I always look forward to your posts about this event! You take such gorgeous pictures that I think seeing it in person might be a disappointment! Will you be decorating a table next year? You are so talented that I'm sure your entry would win!

    1. Peter, thank you! You know, there is some truth in your words about seeing tables in person. It's difficult to separate them from their surroundings. Some tables have gorgeous background, others have only plain walls behind them; sometimes they look lost in a big room. In a picture, we see all the details, big and close, and can focus on the smallest elements of the decor. To appreciate a table, one needs to ignore anything else and look only at that particular design. That is why, I like to take pictures and then study them at home. This way each table looks wonderful. They all are great!

    Hard to believe it's almost time for Christmas trees!

  11. Wow, what gorgeous photos of both the garden and the table settings! I love the beautiful autumnal colours of the setting on the slice of log.
