Some Tabletops from Lakewold Gardens and Cookbook Giveaway Results

Actually, in the opposite order - The Old Goat Farm's Cookbook giveaway results and then several gorgeous tabletops from the Lakewold Gardens' 18th Annual Beautiful Tables Showcase (Washington state). Because, what comes first? Food!
As was announced in the post Visit to the Old Goat Farm, someone is about to receive its Dessert Cookbook!
Thank you all for the comments and for entering the giveaway.
The winner is Christina from San Diego, California, the author of the Organic Garden Dreams Blog

Congratulations, Christina! Happy baking!
Please, leave your mailing address in a comment (won't be published).

And now, I invite you to look at some of the table settings presented at the Wagners' Mansion in Lakewold Gardens during the October-2016 Beautiful Tables Showcase.
The desserts from the above cookbook would fit any of these creatively set tables!

  1. Those are fun. Makes me want to have a tea party.

    1. Thank you Linda! Winter is a good time for tea party!!!

  2. Congratulations to the winner!

  3. All these table settings are lovely! And, I remember your 'table' posts from 2012 or even 2011. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Betty, thank you so much for being this blog's reader for so long!!!

  4. The table settings seem to get more elaborate every year. I love the hen and chicks one -- I like the way they included the plants. The red roses on the Mad Hatter table are gorgeous. P. x

    1. Thank you, Pam! Yes, I love that table too! I often try to include live plants into my table settings.

  5. Dear Tatyana, I couldn't believe that I won your giveaway, when I opened your post! I have never won anything, nothing, nada so far in any raffle, so I guess it was simply meant to be. Thank you so much for being so generous, it sounds like it is an awesome desert recipe book. I will e-mail you my address privately the moment I have finished this comment. Thank you very much again, you gave me a lot of joy already and I can't wait to receive the book.
    Now to your post. Each year I am looking forward to your coverage of the Lakewood Gardens table setting competition. They are always so inspiring! My favorite this year is the blue and white one with the rooster theme. Just lovely!
    Warm regards,

    1. Christina, is it true? Never ever? I am very happy for you! Now, you need to start buying lottery tickets, ha-ha! Congratulations once again!!!!
      Your favorite table was a winner in the Novice-Contemporary Design category. I like it very much!

  6. THANK YOU, Tatyana!

  7. Congratulations to Christina! All of these tables are lovely but my favorite is your dining room table. I love the wall treatment (how did you do that?) the paintings, and the exquisite table. The beauty of your home and garden reflect your exuberant elegance, skill, and creativity. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Peter, you are so kind to me! Thank you!
      It's wallpaper in the dining room. I was thinking of faux painting or something similar, but then, I saw this wallpaper and liked it.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
