Shake Your Tail Feather

I am head over heels delighted to have designed an autumn tablescape in the very tastefully appointed home of Bob & Jean Sloan! Jean, owner of Invitations by Jean, has long been a colleague and friend. I have looked to her for fine stationery – invitations, menus, escort cards and more – for numerous fine weddings over the years.  I fell absolutely in love the first time I laid eyes on her traditionally furnished dining room. Jean’s remarkably refined taste is already apparent in the space, and my job was just to put the cherry on top with this lush table for 6.

To see photos of this luscious fall tablescape, click HERE or on the “Autumn” tab above. And remember, when the time comes to select fine stationery for any social occasion, email me at for information on how to contact Invitations by Jean.

This is my very first time participating in Tablescape Thursdays on the Between Naps on the Porch blog site. If you would like to see lots of other tablescapers’ creations, just click on the Between Naps on the Porch link to your right.

  1. Stunning!! Love the peacock plates! The acorn, touch of whimsy, is the perfect accompaniment amongst the lovely crystal. Great convo starter at a formal dinner. I’ll keep this stationery source for future reference. Thank you for sharing.

  2. A very elegant and beautiful tablescape! Is this your profession, designing for others? What a fun job!

    Thank you for your sweet comment!


    P.S. – it was a little hard to find you, as it isn’t a clickable url that comes up with your comment. Maybe you could also put your blog url after your name, and you might get lots more comments!

  3. Thank you, Katherine! I just sent an email to you and accidentally put my friend’s name (Michelle) who is sitting here with me! So sorry about that! I’m not real computer/blog savvy, but I think I know what you’re talking about. I’ll try it and see if it works. Thank you…and sorry again about the name thing! I’m going to banish her from my sight!!!

  4. Hello Alycia, I’m so glad you stopped by to say hello because it led me to you and your wonderful tablescapes. Aren’t you lucky to have as a profession creating beautiful tables and you seem to do it without spending a fortune. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

  5. You are tremendously talented. Thanks for sharing it with practicaly everyone. It should move from practically everyone to a much broader audience as in syndicated television, magazines and where more people could see your talents and pick up ideas.

  6. Hey sis, what a beauty. I finally got into the blog. Apparently, I needed to hit the url address instead of trying to oprn those little boxes.. Oh well. I seem to be spending a lot of time on the senile train. Anyway that was just absolutely beeyoooteefuuuuuulllll.
