Pottery Barn CopyCat

Who doesn't like Pottery Barn?  I have been wanting to copy one of their dinner parties for quite some time. I actually gave a dinner party with this theme. Italian theme....
Here's my inspiration: 

When I had my dinner party, I used a tablecloth to protect the table.
See below.  The wood is so beautiful, sometimes I hate to cover it. Our table is much more beefy than the Pottery Barn table.
This table is complete with Chef's hats.

I decided to use lavender napkins and wine glasses to give it some pop.  I also added the cute chefs.

These pictures below are the actual dinner party.  I used a tablecloth

Since the salad plates have green and lavender, I went with green napkins and lavender wine glasses.

Ok Bloggers, I have shared my copycat design....I look forward to seeing what everyone else is doing.  Have a wonderful day.
Thank you again for visiting and comments.

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. Linda, I have to say...I think yours is better. Your table, chairs, table runner, chargers are all gorgeous...I would have loved to be there! What a fun theme! Excellent copy-cat!

  2. Oh Linda, first off your such a pretty lady:) Second your table is fantastic. Better than PB if you ask me. I bet the meal was tasty too. Thanks for sharing with the party. Enjoy!

  3. Oh, poo! I always miss the Copycat Challenge! My mind gets caught up in another world somewhere. YOU, on the other hand, did a really terrific job of capturing the spirit of the PB table!!!!! The addition of the ceramic chefs makes it more playful and fun than the original version! I am just bowled over by those great toques! What a super fun idea for place cards/favors!!! Great job!

  4. Hi Linda, love the chefs. I also have a fondness for lavender and green. Like yours better than PB! Your table is beautiful. xo

  5. Very nice Linda...hands down...yours' is much better!

  6. Hi Linda: That is a great and beautiful copy cat idea. Your's looks so pretty and so do you with your little chef's hat. Love what you did and I bet dinner was great too..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  7. Hi Linda...the pics are lovely...the arrangement is really pretty!I like those li'l chefs...cute! Something we don't get to see everyday...Kudos!

  8. What a beautiful table, Linda! I really LOVE those candle holders...so pretty! I'll bet your guests had a great time.

  9. Fabuous copy cat lovely Linda! Yes, I too like your dinner table more, as do mine when I see some in magazines, from my Italian dinner set. I love your tablescape more I think too, lol..Thank you for dropping by to comment on my new acquired red transferware dishes. I bought them, didn't receive them from mother, she gave me French Limonges already..bought in the antique shop, they came straight from Europe for me, as it was an order. Now I need to wait for the dinner plates and soup bowls for 12, as is the tea set. I have German onion in blue and white and others, so I really wanted the red for using around the holidays too.

  10. What a fantastic copycat! I love it! Your chefs are so cute and the plates are so pretty.
