A little Spode and More

I have dressed up our display cabinet in our dining room.  The cabinets are wall to wall with plenty of room for dishes, flatware and napkins. Spode has some beautiful dishes in all different critters. I happened to choose the pheasant .  All of the designs are  lovely. I hope to add a few more pieces. I also have the turkey platter.

In 2018 I set our Thanksgiving table with the Spode Woodland Pheasant plates along with copper chargers and feather placemats.  You can see this post Here.

Woodland Pheasant and American Atelier Athena along with Chris Madden.

The table is ready for family entertaining.

I dressed this pretty wooden box my husband made with neutral flowers, a little orange and the American Atelier  Athena Turkey Tureen. I have the dishes to match, also another soup tureen, a teapot, sugar and creamer and gravy boat.

You can see more of this box below.  I wanted an elegant box with feet, so my handy hubby went to work. Instructions are included in this link.

I also decorated our outdoor buffet my husband built.  It's quite handy during the summer months for entertaining. He also added lights. He is slowly building another buffet for down at the pool.  We can blame Jain from A Quiet Life for inspiring me. 
Another view of our Japanese maple we save when we remodeled our kitchen.  I love the bright warm colors. Enjoy the rest  of your week.

  1. Ohhh to have that outdoor space and still have enjoyable weather. Your Spode display is gorgeous. Have a great day. xoxo Kris

  2. What a beautiful display of Spode and the fall items both in and outside of your home. Fall is a wonderful homey season. It gets you ready for the cozy season of winter.

  3. Your husband makes such lovely things for you.
    You are a great team.
    My TG pretty dishes have been packed away:(
    One day..:)

  4. My family always had a lot of Spode..I think my sister still has some of it..Love it at Thanksgiving..
    Hope you are enjoying this cloudy but beautiful day..

  5. Linda, it is such a delight to see your beautiful outdoor areas as well as your interiors. The wall of dinning room display cabinet is a perfect spot to display your wonderful collections of dishes. I happened upon a pair of the pheasant salad plates at a local consignment shop near Sadie's vet. They are my inspiration for our Thanksgiving table this year. I'd love to find the large American Atelier pheasant tureen if you ever find a source. Love your turkey one too! The large ones make a beautiful statement. Your shelves look fabulous!

  6. I LOVE your Pheasant Spode. I may start collecting it too.

  7. Wow, Linda! Truly a resort-like atmosphere! The Spode china is so handsome, all the different patterns. A dealer buddy and I laugh of our dish addictions. He told me he just sold a complete service for 8 in the fox (darn it!), still has the turkey pattern in his booth, and a complete set of the Johnson Bros Windsor Ware. Your outdoor buffet is so nice! Paul works wonders, and that tabletop box is great. Love the bun feet on it.

  8. You have such beautiful pieces, Linda, and everything looks lovely!

  9. I think your display of Spode is lovely and perfect for Thanksgiving. Your table is stunning and the outdoor buffet is such a great place to enjoy seasonal vignettes when you aren't serving up a delicious meal. So much eye candy and inspiration Linda. Wishing you and Paul a very Happy Thanksgiving.......

  10. Beautiful, Linda! Love the box your husband made. Wishing you and your family a happy Thanksgiving!

  11. It's always fun to take a peek into your home. I adore your amber glasses! Hope you and Paul have a Happy Thanksgiving

  12. I love the idea of an outdoor buffet, which look just fabulous (and how nice to be able to enjoy it in November and beyond!). I love your Spode pattern and the hutch is really beautiful. So, too, is the table and your cheery kitchen stove makes me smile! I hope your Thanksgiving is as lovely as you are!

  13. Wow, Linda! Love your Spode display in the dining room. Your hubby is amazing. I love the elegant box he made.
    Your turkey platter makes a great statement in your kitchen.
    I enjoyed your outdoor buffet all decorated.
    Happy Thanksgiving next week.

  14. I'm a huge fan of Spode. That's my Christmas china and our flatware is Spode, as well. Your collection is beautiful!

  15. I like the way you decorated the pretty box your husband made you. The Spode china looks beautiful and I love the tables you decorate for each holiday and season. I hope you have a nice weekend and a happy Thanksgiving.

  16. You and Paul make a great team, and I love all your Thanksgiving decor. Wishing you a nice weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving.

  17. Your display cabinet looks beautiful Linda, the Spode is gorgeous and I love the white turkey tureen and the amazing wooden box your husband made full of flowers and pumpkins, so pretty!
