A Buffet Tablescape

This is a table we have displayed at Hodgepodge—it is chock full of ideas for your consideration.

tablescape, right

wine rack display Ikat napkins

The pattern on these napkins and the tablecloth is call “Ikat” I love the graphic punch it offers.

plates and frod card

Above you’ll see some sandwich plates from the Mary Carol Collection—don’t you love the stylized flower?  How about that cute frog place card holder?  (It would also be a great photo holder!)  The sturdy bamboo-look handle on the cheese knife is great for cutting through hard cheeses. 

 square baker

Here you see a Hodgepodge signature offer—a bundled mix of vintage silver plate flatware for only $19.95!  It’s tied together with a satin ribbon on some raffia to echo the casual style of this table.  They’re placed in a square baker from TAG.

three tier display

One of favorite display pieces here at Hodgepodge is this three tier rusted metal stand—we use it for a variety of displays.  In your home, you might use it for fruits.  Or you can use it in your bathroom to contain your towels, soaps and powders.

two tier plate rack

This is one of our mainstays—a two tier plate holder.  Great for serving appetizers or stacking plates for a buffet service.

wine rack

Here we’ve included a wine rack right on the table—makes it easy for guests to help choose the wines , plus it serves as another eye  catching level.  The third picture (above) is a display we arranged on top of the rack!

I found a lot to talk about—I really love this job!

Let me know if you have any ideas or questions!

I’m going to link this to Between Naps on the Porch for her weekly “tablescape” event.  Be sure to visit some of the others, but BE WARNED—it’s addictive!  (Just ask my Mom!)

Thanks for your indulgence!

in addition to the companies listed in my post, Spode, Royal Doulton, & Royal Worcester are also in bankruptcy. Several of these companies are owned by Wedgewood.
