Chari, I missed seeing over half of these the first time, so I'm going back to view each one indivually. They are all stunning, it was pure torture to see all the silver....lol.. You have a gift of puttimg unique pieces together in each setting. From our home to yours Happy New Year! hugs ~lynne~

Vintage Gal said...

Chari ~ I missed most of these as I just became a follower of your blog. The pictures make me swoon. LOVE them. I hope to see lots more in 2011!
((hugs))

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love your wire cloche, Chari, and I love seeing it! You have to have the best bird plates that I have seen! Those square ones are really unique. It's great that your dining room is so versatile for each season. It really makes it easy to bring the colors you do in.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh I loved your tabletop review of 2010! I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite...they're all splendid! I do love all the colors you use and beautiful tabletop gatherings for each season. Looking forward to more splendor in 2011!

BonjourRomance said...

Bonjour Chari,
Every last table scape is my favorite - you have such a talent for creating lovely spaces. It has been a pleasure getting to know you.
I wish you and your family a blessed and Happy Nex Year!

Marilyn said...

Pick a favorite??!! They're all the best, my friend. You are so talented! You could just travel west on I-76 and I'm only a mile away! My dog likes to bark at every coal train that follows the road!

Thanks so much for visiting and sharing with us. ♥♫

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Every single one of your tablescapes has been breathtaking...and I am not kidding!
YOu are SO wonderful at this...just perfection!
Thank you for reposting these! What a treat.

It's like I am my first day in Kindergarten and you are a college grad when it comes to home decor!
You amaze me, Chari!! You really do!

~ Lyndsay The Kitchen Witch said...

You are so talented! I really enjoyed looking at these pictures - lots of great design ideas.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Chari,
Miss Mona said it perfectly! You do this so well.... It's like Perfection and then some!
I love them all but the last one is my fave too! When you sent me those pics they took my breath away!
Even hubby was so impressed and he's not a tablescaper. hehe.
I can't believe it's almost a new year! Seems like just yesterday we were sitting outside on your lovely patio.
Sigh.
Wish we were there again!
Big Hugs and New Year's wishes too!
Cindy

Luncheons at the Junction said...

It's so hard to choose - they are all so beautiful. I would have to vote for ALL of the fall/autumn settings. LOL

Marlis said...

do i have to choose? they are all very beautiful. Your autumn one however is exquisite. Perfect in every detail. Thanks so much for sharing all these. Happy New Year to you and yours, may the new year bring lots of blessings!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Enjoyed seeing your table scapes - there is a couple I think I missed during the year - won't try to pick a favorite.
Have a Very Happy New Year!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Chari, YOur style... ELEGANT! Oh so beautiful. You have lovely things and display them with such flair.
I have enjoyed each and every table.

Happy New Year, my friend!

Jacqueline said...

Wow! Lots of beauty here! Love all the birds! Happy New Year to you!

Dining Delight said...

It was fun to review these gorgeous tablescapes again! My faves are the Brookshire Autumn (love the items used to create the theme) and the French Country Autumn (love the colours with your dining room). I enjoyed seeing the Christmas 2009 as I think I missed that one, very beautiful! The stemware with the white trees is terrific and goes perfectly!
Happy New Year! Looking forward to more of your tablescapes in 2011!

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

I love seeing a year of your tablescapes. If I dining room finished...I could try to do a few tablescapes...there is no way I could do a year of beautiful ones like these. Thanks so much for you kind comments on my blog! Can't wait to see what you come up with in 2011.

Pat said...

All are gorgeous Chari! I loved seeing your year of tablescapes.

Nezzy said...

Girl, ya have provided me of a year of OOOOooo's and Ahhhhhh's of breathtakin' beauty. Golly gee, if I had to pick one, it would be the tea in the tea rose bedroom but they are all magnificent baby!!!

Ya'll have a fantastically blessed day and a wonderful New Year sweetie!!!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Chari, All of your tablescapes are gorgeous and it would be impossible to pick a favorite. I can't wait to see what you create in 2011. Happy New Year, friend.
Hugs,
Sherry

Entertaining Women said...

Looking forward to perusing the year in review closely. Thank you for sharing all your lovely designs. Happy New Year! Cherry Kay

Donnie said...

It was like leafing through an issue of Victoria magazine. Just lovely. Happy New Year.

Debbie said...

We're supposed to pick a favorite? Impossible. I love your tablescaping style. That's not surprising since I love your decorating style in general.

I guess my very favorite of these is the French country autumn one. Close call, though. I loved the whole tea rose room so that one is a favorite too.

Looking forward to many more oohs and ahhs here in the coming year.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Happy New Year Dear Chari!
I just got your note! I've been working on a post for my anniversary (bloggin) and trying to take care of Addison at the same time!
Come by and see when you can! I have a plug to you in there as well!
Big Hugs and here's to a wonderful new year for you and Russ!

Chari,
All is beauty over here,
I so love the theme of all your birds, Did we ever talk abolf your flatware? your Michele Angelo by Oneida... I have the same set as you, along with others. Yet have been scaling down over here, no need for so much extra great junk :)

Thank you for your visit to my place and 5 things for the new year "Change"

So blessed that you would be my very first visits this year, I was so compelled to read and go right to your site and comment right back!

Blessings to you my dear,
Walking softly with change.

All of the tables are just splendid...each and every one is my favorite. You have the most impeccable taste and talent!

You can't know how much I appreciate the sweet comments you made on my blog. It is a blessing to have a new friend like you!

Beth said...

Hi Chari, I just had the opportunity to view this lovely post as well as your Christmas posts. How pretty your home looks for Christmas! Love that sparkly reindeer, and your Christmas centerpiece! You have put together many lovely tablescapes. Your favorite is also my favorite; in addition, summer tea on the veranda is another I really liked. It has been precious to develop a blogging friendship with you over 2010, and I give you my heartfelt wishes for a 2011 that brings you everything you want and need, with a hearty serving of JOY, PEACE, and GOOD HEALTH!
Blessings,
Beth

Cindy said...

Hi Chari,
Your tablescapes are all breathtakingly beautiful!!! I think my favorite one is Brookshire Autumn, I adore those dishes! They are really gorgeous, but then so are all of the rest.
Happy New Years Day!
Hugs, Cindy

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Chari, there is no way I could pick a favorite of your tablescapes. they are all equally beautiful. I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again-I just love your dreamy, romantic style. It was such a wonderful treat to re-visit all of your fabulous tablescapes. laurie

Mary Ellen said...

Cheri= looking back at your gorgeous tablescapes. Had friends over tonight for dinner and wanted to set a pretty table. Gosh I need you to come set my tables for me- they don't look anything like the beautiful way yours turn out.. Think layering maybe the key- or one of the keys- having friends who know what they are doing would be the other!!
