Black & White Toile Tablescape

I've done it again. 

I've managed to disappear from blogland for another week.

My apologies.  

I just don't know where the time goes anymore.
♥♥♥

How about a tablescape?



 It was a good day to play with a little black & white...
and toile.  I love toile.


Did you know that in my pre-blogging days,
my dining room was done in black & white toile?


When I started lightening up the dining room, there
were just some toile pieces, I didn't want to part with.
Like these placemats,  for instance. 

Let's see...
Cream dinner plates are BH&G, from Walmart
White luncheon plates are Corelle
Black salad plates are from the Oneida Outlet
Black flatware is Cambridge, from Home Goods
Black goblets are from Kmart
 



I picked up the black metal coffee pot at an antique store last year.
I love the way it looks filled with flowers.
Tulips are my favorite!
 

It is always so much fun to play with dishes!

I'm crazy about toile, especially black and white toile, so I happen to love this table. I would love some of those place mats.

And I relate to the disappearance too. I have worked nonstop on a kitchen project and missed not one but TWO weeks so far. UGH.

So beautiful! I am really loving the black and white color scheme right now! I'd love some Toile curtains. Those white plates are pretty too! The black goblets are very classy looking. Those tulips scream spring. Another fabulous tablescape Gina!
I've been painting for 2 weeks now, the time flies when you're busy. Hopefully things will slow down.

Gina - there is something about Toile! I like the way that you mixed your plates (cannot believe that gorgeous one, from Walmart?). I, also, like the way to added the little touch of pink in the tulips - oh, there is something about tulips, too!! Your black stemware is great, too. Love it all!!

Teresa said...

I'm partial to toile. As in, I absolutely LOVE it!!!!

Love the Tablescape and love having you back. I'm babying the ideia of doing an Easter Tablescape in Black and White, so great inspiration in your.

Thanks,

That is awesome with the tulips Gina! Great winter tablescape to cheer ya up. Have a great weekend.

Ann Krucek said...

Great table! I love the mixture of patterns on the placemats and runner. Your black coffee pot makes the perfect vase for your beautiful tulips. Tulips make me smile, sing of spring I guess.

Janet said...

I love your black and toile tablescape, Gina! I've changed a lot of my decorating style since my pre-blogging days, too! I still have the toile wallpaper in my dining room, because I still really love it!

Alycia Nichols said...

I think we all understand taking a little break from blogging here and there. I do it all the time! There are just some weeks when it doesn't fit into the schedule! Or some weeks when the creativity valve has been shut off. Whatever the case, it's good to take the time we need to rejuvenate! Look at this gorgeous table...this is the absolute picture of rejuvenation!!!!!! I love black and white together so much. It just always has such a fresh look! I would love to do my kitchen and dining room in black & white. The colors work year round and can have other colors easily added for variety. I LOVE the coffee pot you used for the tulip display!!! Just beautiful! Have a great weekend, Gina!

ImSoVintage said...

I love toile, too and the black and white is so pretty. It's been hard for me to get back to a regular blogging schedule, but I am trying :)
Hugs,
Laura

Victoria said...

Your tablescape looks amazing! I love your toile place mats and actually have a similar set:)

I fall behind on blogging also and, if I remember correctly, you also work full time? I don't know how you do it!!! A break once in a while is a good thing:)

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Love the tulips and the toile. I'm glad you hung on to those place mats too!

I have become a fan of toile over the past year. Lovely table with your black and white theme. You can't beat black and white anytime.

Melonie said...

Oooh loving the black and white...so classy! Hope you are surviving winter...is it over yet?

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

I really have a crush on toile right now, and you have used it beautifully on your table. The coffee pot makes such a cute container for your tulips. We all have to go MIA from blogland now and then. The weather has been stopping some projects of mine! (That's my excuse, anyway!)

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Out of all your tablescapes you have done this one is my fav! Of course I love black and white. It is stunning Gina!
