Tablescapes with White China

Housebeautiful recently did this exercise, where they asked 15 designers to put together tablescapes using the old favorite white tableware which almost everyone has ( except me i think !!) Here are five of my favorite ones...one can definitely use some of the clever ideas from here at home...to see more hop to housebeautiful.

I like this because of the use of old books and doilies...so pretty

Ah...white and deep red...what art!!
And the overflowing silver bowl of fruits is what makes the tablescape so warm and inviting...don't you agree?

This one has to be my favorite...so casual and so me...
a solid wooden tray, a rolled up newspaper with that toad napkin ring, lots of fresh fruits, a french press and a good morning note...
someone get me breakfast in bed NOW!!

I am not a huge fan of antique stuff..but i definitely like mixing the old with the new...
the white crockery with the antique pewter stuff looks wow

White and silver and gold..how can one go wrong?

Do you have any tablescapes pics with white tableware...do share them here ;)

ha ha... so true.. everyone has white!! I have some gifted to me.. lying in a box.. I just cannot seem to do white!!! My regular plates are orange & blue... so moving from there to white.. is a bit of a shock..

But this post is lovely.. so maybe this Christmas I'll bring out the white..

Can you make white pottery tableware? Then it would be quite exclusive, no? Just saying - I am most impressed that you make your own crockery and stuff!
