Fabulous Dollhouse Tablescapes


Since today is Tablescape Thursday, I thought we would come back to
Kathleen's magical dollhouse and take a close look at some of her
fabulous miniature tablescapes.  

I will warn you now ~ this is a lengthy post so brew a cup of tea or
pour yourself a big mug of coffee and settle back and enjoy.
Bentley and I will sprinkle a little fairy dust on you so that we will
all get in the right mood ;-)

Here we are in the kitchen.  It's breakfast time.  Hot blueberry muffins
just out of the oven.  Danish pastries.  Orange juice and coffee.
Yum!



Or maybe you would prefer pancakes and syrup with a side of sausage.
The dollhouse fairies are very sociable and aim to make your visit
as magical as possible.



Doesn't this look delicious!




They also excel at creating lovely and yummy breakfast trays.



Don't you feel spoiled?  That kitty is going to get that pup up one
way or another.  It's time to play!



A backyard barbecue.  



Here we are back in the kitchen.  The fairies are making deviled eggs and
wrapping up sandwiches for a picnic.




Corn on the cob and cherry pie.  My kind of picnic!



Colorful Fiesta Ware.  It always makes a happy statement.  Love the cute
and colorful napkins too.  Even fairies like to set a pretty table!



Mint Juleps on the front porch.  So sophisticated.



Patriotic celebrations on the porch too.  I am just expecting Aunt Bea to
show up any minute for a Mayberry Moment.




My friend Kim Saulter made that apple pie.  She is so talented!
The strawberry cake is by 2smart miniatures.



Look what the fairies are up to now ~ someone is having a birthday …





So much celebrating in this dollhouse.



A Mother's Day tea.



Valentine's Day.



And a special tea party just because!



Fall dinners.



Making pumpkin soup.



And enjoying every spoonful at this pretty table.



Preparing the Thanksgiving feast.  I spy brussel sprouts.  Love them!



Here is the table before it is set.  Such a pretty fall centerpiece.




And finally, the beautiful Thanksgiving table with everyone's favorite
and traditional side dishes.  Quite the feast!



Let's loosen our belts and adjourn in the living room.  I don't know
about you, but I am going to run around the dollhouse block several
times to work off all of those delicious meals!

I wonder if when I finish my own dollhouse one day if the fairies who
move in will be such skilled cooks ;-)

Once again, thanks to my friend Kathleen Holmes for letting us visit her
magnificent dollhouse.  Tomorrow is the big tour of the new home ~
I promise!

Bentley and I have been having the loveliest morning
in our studio preparing this post and listening to old
tunes by Frank Sinatra and Mel Torme.  Puts us in
such a dreamy mood.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  4. Amazing little house! I enjoyed it so much, as my husband built our two little DDs a two floor house with a kitchen and running water, which was very nostalgic for me to see this. We had many a good time with them. This one is gorgeous and I loved all the food and details and the adorable little tablescape with the Fiesta dishes. My DDs had melamine dishes in these same colors, lol! . Awesome! I also loved the beautiful Fall table setting in the big house.
    Thanks for sharing such fun. Hugs to Bentley.
