I still had my “Winterscape” on the table until late last night and decided at the last minute to change out the table and join some “link parties”..So in a matter of 15 minutes, I transformed my table (not including the time to dismantle) Hopefully, it does not present itself as a 15 minute transformation!! I have lots of “pears” in my kitchen decor, so I thought that I would use these pears as my theme. Hope you enjoy!


The long view of the table..A silk floral arrangement in a vintage McCoy planter with cabbage roses and hydrangeas (my favorite)…I added faux pears around the arrangement and flanked them with candles.


The place setting. Charger: Franciscan; Dinner plate and salad plate: Dansk Fiance Fruits. The sherbet glass is vintage. Pear: Faux from Pottery Barn several years ago.



Plate detail..I love this dinnerware, but unfortunately it is discontinued.


I took a compote that I bought from HomeGoods several years ago and inverted it and placed the candle on it.


My Lenox pear which is a holds a tea pretty when lit..



The footed plate is another find from HomeGoods a few years ago. Atop is a ceramic pear and surrounded by faux fruit tarts and candy. My granddaughter loves to play tea party with these faux goodies!




My pear cookie jar on the right…

So that is my very quickly put together “pearscape” Hope you enjoyed it and would love to hear from you and give me your feedback!!

  1. Lovely tablescape, Shirley! I love your Lenox pear and how the Home Goods pieces really work with it.

  2. Very pretty. I really love that Lenox Pear. So delicate. Everything looks lovely. Thanks for sharing

  3. Oh my I so love the stunning Charger and dinnerware together…you hit a home run out of the park with that combination…it just sings!

  4. This is one heck of a 15-minute transformation! Pears are such a wonderful decorating staple, and you are quite smart to have a collection at your fingertips. That Lenox one is just TOO pretty! The dishes are really pretty, too. Too bad they’re discontinued. It seems like that happens all too often…you fall in love with something, start a collection, and then wham!…they’re outta there! 🙁 Very pretty table! Have a warm, safe weekend!

  5. Shirley, this is such a pretty table! LOVE the pears!! You have quite a collection there! This is awesome for a 15-minute transformation. I can only imagine what you would do if you had 20 minutes…lol!!! This is just gorgeous!!

  6. Love pearscape! How fun that you have all those pears that you can pull together (no, it doesn’t look like 15 minutes). My favorites are the upside down pedastal, now candle holder, the richly beautiful plates, and the cream colored scroll pear jar. Really fun! If you are up for another link party, please join me on Saturday for R & R Weekend. Anything that you post that brought you Rest or Rejuvenation of your creative spirit – crafting, sewing, cooking, movie watching, reading, reflecting, traveling or ???? We need to share ideas about what brings us joy! I would love to have you join the party. Happy blogging! ~CJ

  7. I love this tablescape! It certainly doesn’t look like one *I* could assemble in 15 minutes! I’ve always admired that Dansk pattern, and I REALLY covet your “Burple” sherbets. I have the water glasses in that pattern from my husband’s grandparents, but would love to also own some sherbets.

  8. Very Pretty! Really brightens a dreary January day… XO Cindy

  9. Very pretty. I can’t believe you did it that quickly. Love those plates.

  10. I am absolutely in love with your pearscape. The sherbets caught my eye and drew me in and I realized with have similiar taste. I have my mother’s collection of the green glassware. She got much of it as premiums at gasoline stations. Go figure. I then noticed the reticulated plate stand with the pear arrangement. I have the same one and a larger one that I stack.
    Your linens are breathtaking and the lenox pear votive is awesome.
    I am glad I found you through Common Ground.
    I am a new follower.
    Blessings, Ginger

  11. LOVE this table! Love the pear theme too. The dishes are beautiful. XO, Pinky

  12. It all looks beautiful and definitely does not look like it too 15 minutes…happy weekend!!

  13. You know I share your love of tablescapes, and this is no exception….gorgeous!

  14. Warm and beautiful with the pear theme. Love the way you inverted the compotes to use as candleholders and your Dansk china. Too bad it’s discontinued. It’s gorgeous.

  15. Lovely tablescape! I just love HG!! Visiting from the Tablescaper!

  16. I can’t believe you did this in 15 minutes! I have the same love but for pumpkins…I have pumpkins all over my kitchen!
    I’m hosting a winter theme linky party and would love for you to post this!


  17. That is my kitchen pattern! I have a closet full, high hat bowls, serving pieces etc. We used to have a little Dansk Outlet here in Southampton and they sent out coupons, sometimes up to 50 off!

    If I ever decide to get rid of it, I know who to contact!

    Very pretty table.

  18. Oh it is so pretty. I love the pear plates and your gorgeous cakestand with all the cutwork is unreal. Beautiful tablescape. I adore it all. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  19. So fun. Nice change out.

  20. This is beautiful! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!

  21. Thanks so much for linking up to my Manic Monday link party…it was a huge success! Make sure you check back tomorrow when I feature the top 3 posts. I’ll be hosting another Manic Monday linky party this week- the theme is LOVE. 🙂

  22. That’s a very inviting table. There is so much to love here! The cutwork tea light pear really caught my eye. You really have a good eye for bringing it all together.

  23. Loove it! So very pretty. Can you give me advice on how to store your “extra” things for tablescaping and still be able to access a theme? I can’t wrap my head around it, but am tired of giving things away only to wish I kept them for the next event or party!
