Christmas Tablescape Giveaway!

In celebration of reaching 150 followers and the Christmas (Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends) season I wanted to show my gratitude by offering an 8 Piece Place Setting of Mikasa's Dahlia pattern.

The contrasting colors of red and white make a statement on this pattern.  The square shape offers a change from the ordinary.  This could be played up during the holidays and Fourth of July.  The shape and pattern offer many varieties of tablescapes.












There are 4 chances for you name to be entered.

1.  Leave me a comment on how what kind of tablescape you would do with this pattern.
2.  Become a follower.  Leave me a comment letting me know if you are an existing or new follower.
3. Post about my giveaway or put it on Facebook and let me know.
4.  Like my blog on Facebook and leave me a message there.

The giveaway will end on Friday December 10th.

Again thanks to all my sweet friends that I have met from this blog! 
 I am looking forward to having a lot of new friends!!!
Don't forget to grab my button!

How beautiful! I love this pattern. It has an Asian feel to it; I would do an Asian tablescape with Chinese food. Love your etched tumblers too. Very pretty table!
Blessings, Beth

Mimi said...

Beautiful table!

Red Couch Recipes said...

I adore this pattern -- I am a huge fan of red. Like Beth, I would do something Asian. Joni

Debbie said...

I'm another big old fan of red and I have nothing like this at all in my stash. I would love to do a crisp summer table with it.It also just screams for an Asian table.

Hi Lacy,
What a beautiful table! I love the red place settings against the crisp white tablecloth. Stunning. I just became a follower. Thanks for the invite from your comments. I would pair the red with black and white accents! ~Susie

Alycia Nichols said...

Very pretty table...and not just because I'm so partial to red for holiday decorating! I really like those glass tumblers with the snowy winter scene, too!

Debbie said...

Very pretty ... love the dinnerware! Thanks for sharing.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

This is such a beautiful setting! I love the touches you've added, like the candy canes in the mugs! Great glasses, too. I could see these being very festive for a Christmas morning breakfast or brunch. BTW, I also love what I can see of your china cabinet. It looks beautiful!

Jeannine said...

I think I might set an intimate table for two for Husband and myself at Valentines day.

Aledia said...

Hi! I am a new follower and I just love these dishes, I would love to be entered into your drawing!

Thanks and Have a blessed night!

It is beautiful, and it does have an Asian flair...hmm, I would have to think of something to do with it, maybe gilded fruits, etc.

Red and flowers reminds me of Valentine's Day so I'd use this beautiful dinnerware on a lovely, romantic table.

Jacqueline said...

I am a follower and have been for a long time. I would love to win these gorgeous plates (where would I put them? - Oh, I can make more room!)

Jacqueline said...

I think I would do something Asian as has been suggested or maybe a summer meal with red roses from my garden.

Gloria (The Little Red House with the White Porch) said...

Oh, I would love to win the plates because they are SQUARE! I have a red kitchen, and numerous red touches in my house too, so they would fit in so nicely. I would love to do a tablescape just as you have -- it looks lovely. And I LOVE those napkins with the little bow! Great choice to add those to your tablescape.
Best,
Gloria

This is such a pretty table. I think this dinnerware would be so versatile. I love thinking about it for a Valentine table. We love to get take out Chinese for Valentine's Day - so much nicer to be at home than in a crowded restaurant and no one has to cook. The combination of the holiday and the food would be perfect with these dishes.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

These are gorgeous! I have a red dining room and I am seeing all kinds of great table settings. Christmas, Valentines day, 4th July with some blue mixed in... Count me in!
