Tuscan Inspired Tablescape and a Giveaway from Pfaltzgraff



Last spring I was so very fortunate to be able to share with you a tablescape I put together based on the wonderful book The Secrets of Pistoulet by Jana Kaplan. The book's beautiful illustrations by graphic designer and photographer Mary Tiegreen were adapted by Pfaltzgraff to create a gorgeous collection of dinnerware called Pistoulet

(To see the Pistoulet table setting just click here.) 




This year I was thrilled when the good folks at Pfaltzgraff asked me to create another tablescape using their breathtakingly vivid Villa della Luna collection. This collection is based on Kaplan's sequel to The Secrets of Pistoulet, the book
"Dancing with the Moon ~ A Story of Love at Villa della Luna". 

 Again Kaplan's fairy-tale was illustrated by Mary Tiegreen and published in 1997. In 2004 Pfaltzgraff adapted Tigreen's illustrations to design their Villa della Luna collection, so 2014 celebrates the tenth anniversary of this stunning dinnerware



This time the journey of our heroine Mademoiselle J. brings her to The Villa della Luna, a magnificent seaside abode in Italy. As in Pistoulet, the Villa is an unexpectedly delightful place where Mademoiselle J. discovers her "true self" through both daily walks with her dogs and more encounters with enchanted recipes. 




Pfatzgraff's Villa della Luna collection is superbly weighted and beautifully decorated with the bright colors of earthy Terra cotta orange, sunflower yellow, and deep Mediterranean blue.




 I just adore these pedestal mugs, they seem to make what ever hot beverage I am drinking that much more special. These can hold a full 12 ounces of tea or coffee.





At The Villa della Luna one can experience the magic of wonderful delicacies such as The Minestrone of Memories and Reflection which unlocks memories of the past to help one to move on with their future. I can imagine this cheery soup bowl as the perfect vessel for such a culinary delight. 




I love the bright and bold design of the dinner plate and how it contrasts with the lighter more delicate and somewhat whimsical pattern of the scalloped salad plate.




This beautifully designed sangria pitcher filled with tulips is the perfect centerpiece for my rustic Italian tablescape.





And since Kaplan's tale is one of love, I could't help but to add two chippy love birds to the table.





I absolutely love the idea of dining Al Fresco even if there still is a wee bit of snow on the ground.




At about 6:30 in the evening I went outside to break down my tablescape and this is what I saw ...




The gray stockade fence had been transformed into a glowing hue of spun gold in the light of the setting sun...almost as if by magic!

I can't help but to think that possibly the enchantment of  The Villa della Luna may have had something to do with this beautiful metamorphosis.




To be whisked over to Pfaltgraff and view more of the Villa della Luna anniversary collection, just click here.
