PICK YOUR FAVORITE JANUARY TABLE!

I haven't done one of these in a while
so I thought it would be fun.
I found several
WINTER TABLE SETTINGS
to show you here.

Your duty is to pick the one you like best
and VOTE on it.
I know SOME of you have a hard
time picking just one but  please try!

I did a little research and the first time that
the word tablescape came into use
(as best they can trace it)
was on Sandra Lee's show
on the Food Network.
Who knew?
I always thought the word 
TABLESCAPE was coined by 
Martha Stewart herself.

Anyway-
Without further rambling here are your choices.

#1-
BEAR IT AT THE TABLE

#2
BABY I'M BLUE
source

#3
ANTLERS ON WATCH
source

#4
BARNSIDE INSIDE?OUTSIDE?
source
#5
SHIVER ME SILVER
source

#6
AQUA & RED ARE READY ARE YOU?
source
#7
ALL RIGHT WITH ALL WHITE AND GOLD
source

#8
BLUE SPARKLED BABY
source

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST
#9
FROZEN TO THE SEAT
CARE TO JOIN ME?
source
Okay!  Now it is up to you!
Which table would YOU like to sit at?
I'll provide the food and you provide the company.
I think we will ALL pass on #9
even as pretty as it is!

I'll give you the tally in a day or so..
I am still working on my son 
with a very exciting 
NEW BUSINESS VENTURE
and want to share that with you soon.
Just trying to get all of our ducks
in a row and the media end of it set up.

So--there you have it--
Don't PICK your nose FAVORITE!

coffeeontheporchwithme said...

#7 please. Am I a boring traditionalist? -Jenn

Susie said...

Diana, I think number one . I love how that long table. I would have loved that growing up. :) From what I have learned about keeping ducks in a row...Linda Chapman at Linda's Life Journal taught me...you better have some cracked corn to offer. LOL. Blessings and good luck wishes to you, xoxo,love, Susie

Tete said...

#9, but I am not sitting outside...bring it in!

Sally said...

Number two hands down; love the simplicity! Excited to hear about the new venture. :)

Have a blessed Sunday sweet lady.
xoxo

I'm going with #5 -- Shiver Me Silver! As for #9, one restaurant in Winnipeg always had an outdoor lunch every January called the Polar Bear Luncheon. It was always a crapshoot whether the day would be mild (just under 0) or freezing (down to -30). It was staggeringly popular.

Linda said...

#1 for me! The chairs look comfy and that’s important at my age! I really liked #4 but no backs to that bench and is a deal breaker for me! This is so much fun!

An Oasis in the Desert said...

#6 gets my vote....aqua and red just say "HAPPY" for me!

Warm hugs,
Carol

Bethany Carson said...

#2 for me please! #9 is nice, but there is no way I'm going to sit out there in the cold to eat! Always love these--so fun!

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

I'd like a reservation for Table 4 please!

Adam said...

#9

laurie said...

I choose barnside outside today lol,,to be honest my table rarely see's anything so elaborate, at this moment it has a puzzle half completed, watercolor paints with watercolor teacup water (precious elixir ) the tea pot from lunch and the grocery flyers for Sunday sales!!! Sad sad sad lol,, thanks for the treat to my eyes!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I would like a seat at #1 please! I need the cuteness and fun of this table to cheer me up this cold winter!

Red Rose Alley said...

Number 2. For some reason, blue dishes are the prettiest to me. You know, the word TABLESCAPE I never liked. I don't know why they didn't stick with the original "table setting." That was lovely. I hope your business venture turns out just the way you want, Diana.

Cristina Garay said...

Number 1. It says winter, but it feels warm and those bears are too cute!

Kay G. said...

Did anybody say #6, Aqua and Red? I love those colors but I would take away that giant red arrangement in the center and replace it with a smaller red floral one. Man, I am picky! :-)

Gina said...

Always hard to make a choice, but I've got to go with #5. For a New Yorker, that table screams Winter to me. :)

Sandi said...

Imagining the crew at the frozen table breaking into song, "Do you want to build a snoooooowmaaaaaan?"

I am going with 5, silver!

Anonymous said...

#7 looks fine to me. Looks like I am not able to leave a comment except by anonymous again......take another lap around Mt Sinai....again! Cards4ubylouise

nonie everythingsewing said...

Number #7, I just love it!!

Kay G. said...

Since I have to make changes, just give me #1, the BEAR table! Maybe someone could BEAR to sit with me, the grouch who finds fault with everything! LOL!

Simply LKJ said...

Going with #9, and yes, I might freeze my behind! Actually, I prefer to think of it as a quaint movie set for the Hallmark channel with a roaring fire behind my behind ;-)

Carla from The River said...

#5 for me, Shiver me Silver ~ I like the sparkle of it, perfect for a winter night dinner.

Well, our family ended up getting the virus! All four of us. ;-( What a week!! Today I am finally feeling better. I hope to be back on track this week.

xx oo
Carla

Debby Ray said...

Number 3.

Lisa said...

#6- It brightens up the Winter blues.

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

I love 4, as long at the barn is heated!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

I’ll go for #1- I love bears and this one grabbed me right off!

Kimberly~Nutbrown Cottage said...

They're all lovely, but that white and gold table looks sooooo warm and cozy! I vote for #7!

bobbie said...

I have to go with the TeddyBear one, as that is my hubby's nickname for me!! Thanks for the 'game'!

Merlesworld said...

Number two for me.
Merle............

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Very pretty...my favorite is #4.

Jettie said...

#6 need those colors to warm us up.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

#2 Baby I'm blue...I know I can't pick more than one but oh how I love some to the sparkly tables! Can't wait to hear your news! Hugs!

Kathy said...

OK, it's #1. I collect bears and having a table with bears is unbearably nice.

Mac n' Janet said...

I collect bears too so it had to be the first one, loved it.

Debbie said...

I surprised myself...I really like number 6. How is Lulu doing?
Smooches.
Debbie

God's Grace Overflows said...

All of these tables are beautiful, but Red is my favorite color so I'm going with table #6!!

A new adventure with your son...hmm... I can't wait to hear what you are up too!

Have a great week!

Hugs,
Amy

Ron said...

#7 please!!!!!!!!1 Cheers!!!

Missy George said...

Another tough one..I love the Hydrangeas in #2, #7 is classy but I guess I'll go for #5...How is Lulu? How about if I leave more than one comment with different choices?? Would you notice?? Of course!!

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

Have to pick #1, not only is it cute, but it has a slightly naughty title! 😊 Jane

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

Looks like table #1 is going to be crowded.......guess I'll be a the few seated at table 4!

Cecilia said...

Oh goody! Going with #4 because here in Texas we could sit outside and I like barns! :)

Rose L said...

#9 is my choice!!! Wonder if I will be all alone?

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

I would like to sit at #8 please! Beautiful! Nancy

Vee said...

#7

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

As hard as it was for me I did pick only one. But I want you to know I only picked one because you "told" me I had too! So based on that I picked #, #, #, I'm really trying here, #, #, #4! There I did it I only picked one but I must say I really liked #9 but since its been so fricking cold I went with #, #, #, #4! Phew I'm sure glad that's over. I need to lie down a bit and contain myself.

Anonymous said...

Number 1 looks fun to me.

krishna said...

No. 1.. I love teddy bears..

Gert said...

I pick #5! Love these!!! Thanks for doing one again !!!!

Sue ZK said...

Number 4 for me please

Jan said...

You are soooo mean! Only one? I had it narrowed down to three, but then you reminded me that even with all that extra padding, #9 was not practical...so I pick #5!

Karen Ann said...

Number 4, lovely!

Tanna said...

I really like number 4, but I would have to choose number 1 because I really hate sitting across the table from someone and having to crane around a visual obstacle, as beautiful as it is. ;) Hoping Lulu is doing well. blessings ~ tanna

Pam Jackson said...

#4 for me. I would like to have a bit more room on that table but I really love what it is decorative with. I am not a fine china sort of person and I do more of the rustic look. Love the table.

Gay Van Beek, Canterbury Cottage Designs said...

I am sitting here embarrassed, because 1) I was about to pick my nose and 2) I love table #9! Do I have to sit out there though???

snowhite said...

#2 and I wouldn't change a thing, wink wink...

Lesley UK said...

Number 5 for me please. Blessings

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Even though I love #4, I think it would be hard to talk to the people across the table, having to peek through the flowers. I'll go for #1, because it's fun and whimsical. Prayers are for your sweet granddaughter, Diana!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

#1 - Once I saw those adorable bears I was hooked! SO cute the others didn't stand a chance with me haha!

Karen said...

A very hard choice but I vote Red and Aqua!

Connie said...

They are all a bit fancy for me, but I think I would pick #4. I enjoy things pulled together with natural elements and not too complicated. We'll see if anyone else agrees with me . . . sometimes I'm a lone reed waving in the breeze, LOL.

LV said...

Since I am just a plain, simple, country born and raised, Number 4 would work for me.

Fran Caswell said...

#4 for me please.

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Ok, this time I am having a hard time picking but I will go with #4 Barnside. It is just so cozy for winter. If it were Spring, I would have chosen Aqua and Red since those are my fav colors!

Wild Oak Designs said...

I like a number of them, but I like the bear setting best (but without the bears....:)).....

Cranberry Morning said...

I love the Bear it at the Table, and WITH the bears definitely. If they were Scottish Blackface sheep, then it would be even better. But I'll take what cute animal life I can get - without resorting to antlers. :-(

ckrut said...

My pick is #6. It was a tough choice, but I love those little napkin rings.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Love the simplicity of the Barnside table #4....

living from glory to glory said...

Hey, Put me down for table number 5#
Wish we all could meet for a set down dinner one day ;o)

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

I love the farm table #4 - - which isn't typical of my style, but it looks so relaxing and comfy - I'll even buy a flannel shirt to wear to dinner!

Kim said...

Number one...so sweet!!

Stacey said...

They are all pretty but with Valentine's on the mind, I'm loving the aqua and red table. :)

Nonnie said...

I'm going with #5, but I also like blue sparkle, but it's a little crowded. And I like the barn setting. Good job!

Apple of His Eye said...

Hi Diana
My favorite is 5 as I recently did a winter table similar to that one.

Thanks!

Ricki Treleaven said...

Definitely not the last one, and I'm hoping #4 is inside, and if it is, it's my choice!

bj said...

Come SNOW or NOT, I pick #9...too pretty to pass up....and I luv DIFFERENT...!!

Sheila said...

#2 hands down

Candy S said...

I love the first one, it is just way too cute to say no to. I think I fixed my noreply/blogger problem. I spent a good hour trying to figure out how they reworked the blogger menus.

Junkchiccottage said...

Love number #7. So pretty.
Hugs,
Kris

Angela said...

It was hard to choose just one, but number 4 is my favorite!

Creations By Cindy said...

Loving them all but I must go with #3. Those antlers stole my heart! LOL! Hope you are doing well dear lady. Happy Week! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Preppy Empty Nester said...

I don't know any of the sources so I hope that I don't get any of my fellow bloggers mad at me. I like #3. I have been so into antlers lately. Enjoy your day, dear Diana.

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

Hi Diana, oh how fun I love #5 Shiver Me Silver!
Enjoy the week.
Hugs, Julie

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

I pick #1 - so original and different!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Diana, I'll take Table #1, please, with the bears!
