As a kid growing up and then as an adult on into my 40s and 50s, I can’t remember ever missing a presentation of the Grammys. Come what may, I’d park myself squarely in front of the television set, ready to “ooh!” and “aah!” at all the luminaries in attendance. I knew every word to every song and would – a la Beatles-first-come-to-America – scream and cry with joy whenever a cutie pie took the stage. It was all so magical. And then came the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, and I was nowhere to be found. I didn’t even DVR it. What’s the point? I have no idea who 90% of the people are, I find many of the outfits abhorring, I took the antidote for “Bieber Fever” before it became an epidemic, I’m not gaga for Gaga, Nelly’s “It’s Getting Hot In Here” means something completely different to a menopausal woman like me, and most of the “music” just sounds like a train wreck to my ears.

So…this year Ramon and I spent a quiet evening at the home of friends who know how to put on a dignified dinner party with the background sounds of Frank, Ella, Dean and Johnny. Much more to my taste!

At my sister-in-law Zatina’s behest, however, I did create a Grammy Night tablescape. Using Zatina’s treasured dishes that express her profound love of music, I put together an “idea” table. I hope this table will serve as inspiration for future parties (Grammy night, early supper before the symphony, late dinner after a concert, musical tablescape, etc.).

Rock on, Zatina! I hope you like it!

This week, as I proudly do every week, I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. After checking out the photos from my Grammy Night table, boogie on over to Susan’s place to see the work of many talented tablescapers from around the globe.

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE this.. totally LOVE this.. I didn’t watch one skosh of the Grammy’s either. I’m with you on all reasons. Your table is really wonderful. What great dishes and the musical notes in the napkins simply play well! I have to go get some tasters from Pier one.. you’ve planted another idea in my brain for a fun get together. You have exquisite taste and carry out your theme to perfection. The red carpet is perfect and the black makes it all so regal!

  2. What a fun musical, yet elegant tablescape! I doubt the tables were this lovely at the actual event. Well played my friend. You have an amazing gift! xx

  3. And the winner is………YOU! You’re always a winner! I just love Thursdays when I get an email of another one of your stunners. What info can you give us on those dishes, girl? I love it all, but I have to say you’re setting yourself up with that confetti!

    • Hi, Linda! Then we are in the Mutual Admiration Society, because I look forward to seeing your talents, too! I looked it up on Replacements, Ltd., and it is from Lynn’s “Maestro” collection. Although I didn’t use it all in the tablescape, my sister-in-law also owns the salad plates, cups & saucers. As for that confetti…I used to HATE it when people would put that in birthday cards because I’d have to clean it up. You’re right…that would be b-a-d!!!

  4. And yet again, you have EVERY attention to detail. I love that about your tables. The gold painted musical ornaments were perfect, as were the colors that you brought out. Another wonderful themed table. Those are my favorites.

  5. Love your description of the Grammy’s! I couldn’t agree more! Your tablescape is very inspiring – so many fun details to try! The menus inside the envelopes is a terrific idea! I had a wonderful time going through ALL of your tablescapes under this category – FABULOUS as always!


  6. Love your Grammy table! Very creative, as usual.
    I like Gaga’s songs, have no idea of the real meaning though! 🙂
    Remember the ratings from American Bandstand? It has a good beat and I can dance to it!
    Thanks for sharing your creativity. I hope you will join my 3rd Annual St. Pat’s Blog Crawl. 🙂

  7. A very elegent table! Love that your theme is the Grammy’s…I have to admit I don’t know any of the actors either! I didn’t watch…..Thank you for sharing your beautiful dishes. Blessings My friend,

  8. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Yep, I’m not to far from you. I live 10 miles from Marshall and 5 miles from Malta Bend. My younger kids attend school there. Its very tiny. You know the kind where several grades are combined and still the classes sizes are under 20! You might see me running through Marshalls in Independence with a empty cart heading for the dishware and linens! I guess great minds think alike since we have the same dishes! My hubby works nights at a freight carrier in KC KS, so I understand about the meals alone! So nice to meet a new blog friend!
