Good morning, Diana! Ummm, where is the tartan?? Sigh. I will choose the one with the deer, although, they could cut back a little on the blue accents. Yikes, I'm being picky, aren't I? But seriously, I love when you do these posts! -Jenn

Tom said...

...let's go natural.

Kathy said...

Well, this time my problem is not that I like too many but I really don't like any of them all that much. Picky, aren't I? Of all of them, I like #3 the best. OK, you can pick on me this time.

Theresa said...

#5 A dearly loved table for me please:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Jan said...

#5! I love #5!

Dawn P. said...

I am all for #5 - save my seat, please!!

Carol said...

Well, I can say that I am with Kathy on this one as far as I am not a fan of them much, but I will say #5 is my pick as I love the deer and it seems to be subtle, but not boring. Simply Red would be the only other one that I truly care for.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

I too wish there was some tartan but I will choose #3.

Vee said...

The first, though I have more if it fills up too fast.

Tete said...

#1

Patti said...

I love when you do these "choose your tablescape" posts. They are so fun.

I think I will go with table #1.

Blessings,
Patti

Debra She Who Seeks said...

I am torn between a few of them this time, but I must go with the simple elegance of Simply Red, #3.

Sandra said...

#5 is my choice, but please don't put me in the middle seat, I sit low and can't see over the reindeer... I love # 10 but those chairs don't look very comfy... on my never ever never list is #2

Jettie said...

Table 8, and I may be sitting alone from the other comments,

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I choose #2 Jewels Galore. Everything shinny and broth for Christmas ! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving now it's time for all things Christmas!

Hibiscus House said...

I'm torn between two of them..#1, but if full #7....xo Dolly

Lorrie said...

Number 1 for me! So pretty! Don't want to sit anywhere else. Hope there is lots of laughter around the table. No Puddleglums!

LV said...

I MAY HAVE TO EAT BY MYSELF, BUT i LIKE NUMBER 10.

Mevely317 said...

Oooh, I LOVE your new header!
I, too, was desperately seeking some tartan -- even Miles Kimball-esque. In the end, I prefer simple elegance: #3 Simply Red.

Mevely317 said...

OOPS, I didn't see your last-minute entry. :) Please move me to #10! (TY!)

Henny Penny said...

and I will have #6 please. Thank you Dianna!

Simply LKJ said...

All the plaid! #10

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I'm feeling quite sassy and modern this year as I enter my 70th year soon so I pick table #2!!

Junkchiccottage said...

Gosh this was a hard one. I would have to go with sprigs and bells. Love it! Hope someone will sit with me!
They are all beautiful but loving that natural look.
Happy Long Weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

jack69 said...

WE said 3 or 7, then went with 3. They are all beautiful, amazing the creativity of the art minded on special occasions.
Thanks for a show of beauty that brought smiles as she looked over my shoulder this time instead of on her own computer where she lurks. LOL
Sherry & jack

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

#8 please....but I got dibs sitting by the fireplace. Not to my back, but so I can see it burning whilst I am eating, I don't want much, I do like all the red though.

bobbie said...

No hesitation this time, m'dear!! I'll take #4 (pear trees) ~ all those lovely blues and greens remind me of my beloved ocean! May I bring a few seashells to scatter around my place setting?
Cheers!!

bj said...

#9 for me, please, and remember to reserve the chair beside me for Johnny Dep❣️

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

I like your header as well, Diana. I still like #3 but I'm going to move to the tartan #10 because it looks warm and festive.

Connie said...

I pick #10 hands down . . . I love the warm cozy feeling that the plaid provides.

happyone said...

I pick number 3, simple and beautiful.
What time is dinner?!

Sally said...

Simply red, #3 or I'm not coming to your house. :)

xoxo

Grapefruit, lemons and oranges! Oh dear, I forgot what number it was now! I can just imagine all the nutty women around me, we would take those and put them in front of us just to be funny...MINE would be the smallest oranges! HA! Would I be the only one to think of doing that! :-)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I think this was the hardest one of all! I'll pick #9...love the sprigs! Will there be food? I surely HOPE so! heehee! I don't want to have to chew on a twig! lol Thanks for the fun girlfriend!

Fran said...

I love #1 but I would like it a little more Christmasy so I will go with #9 please.

Vonda said...

# 7 Star light, star bright is my pick.

Lowcarb team member said...

I always enjoy this type of post from you Diana, so thanks once again for giving us some brilliant choices.

After much scrolling up and down, I've decided!
It's definitely the gorgeous number three please, 'Simply Red'.

All the best Jan

PS I love your new header/banner :)

Debby Ray said...

Plaid, please... since it’s my favorite Christmas color. 😉

keshakeke said...

#5 is my favorite!

This N That said...

Number one or is it number six? I really don’t want you to go to any trouble .. I can’t eat in the kitchen if I’m coming to your house.. I really appreciate the invite. I guess I better get serious about picking this table.. I have to take a second look. Hold on a minute.
I think I’m going to take number six. Number one looks like it has a lot of dirt on it. I’m sure you’ll have something to say about that. Thanks for putting this altogether Diana. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and all is well. Hugs

This N That said...

CAN Eat in the kitchen. Darn AutoCorrect.

Susan Kane said...

I'm with Fran: #9.

Bless said...

I'll pick #9 - Sprigs and Bells, please. I like the color scheme and how the napkins are folded. :)

Rose L said...

Jewels Galore for me!!! I like some sparkle!!

DJ said...

OK. This is so not easy. At first, I wanted #2 because you know...purple and teal. BUT then I saw #4. But then I realized that the cups and the tree decor didn't match. So that is totally out of the question. However, I did notice that at #7 the paper chain looked very much like dollar bills instead of just paper. So I am leaning toward that table. Because..money. If all this is too much trouble, just put me at the table with the guy that always brings the drinks. Maybe you could talk him into sitting at #7 and we can count the money while we eat.

Sandi said...

I have to pick #8 because I love the unexpected turquoise wall and all that fabulous red!

Terri D said...

I love #3, Simply Red. Beautiful.

Doris said...

LOVE #9! No struggle this time, 9 just jumped right off the page =)

Carla from The River said...

#2 Jewels Galore for me. What ya serving in those big goblets?

Terri Steffes said...

I totally love the plaid. I would feel so at home! The salad plates took my breath away!

Ann said...

#7 Starlight starbright, first star I see tonight. Wish I may, wish I might have the wish I wish tonight. I wish I could choose more than one table.

Michele said...

Love when you post these posts.

I don't truly love any to be honest but #3 Simply Red gets my vote; though I wish it was a little bit more truly Christmas-y.

Thanks for the invite! Hugs!

Lisa said...

#10- I love how this is done up. It’s something easy to create if you can’t find the perfect table cloth.
Lisa

Saimi said...

Number three is for me,
A touch of red is simply said,
Christmas is peaceful, quiet and serene
Sit me at that table and I'll feel like a queen!

Blondie's Journal said...

Number #1. Naturally lovely. In fact, I'd love to replicate this!!

Jane

Adam said...

8 for me.

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

#2 spoke to me of joy in the season. Colorful, sparkly and simple. It makes me feel happy, and it reminded me of you and your sweet, bubbly personality. I looked through the settings twice more and #2 still speaks to me, so #2 it is.

Have a happy, lovely holiday season ~ FlowerLady

Busy Bee Suz said...

#4!!
The perfect pear tree 'cause I'm all about blue/turquoise and food. :)

Rita C at Panoply said...

Well, I am normally mad for plaid, but since someone noticed the chairs looking a bit uncomfy, I decided on #9, sprigs & bells. I love that look too, and I wanna to sit with Kris!

coffeeontheporchwithme said...

Oh my gosh, Diana!! I have now seen your plaid addition. I (sorry for all the trouble) might stick with my choice of #5. For all the extra effort, I will bring a dessert (pumpkin pie? gingerbread cookies? pecan pie? cheesecake?) -Jenn

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

I would love to sit at table one please.

Akasha said...

#9

Anonymous said...

Hard to choose but I love plaid so please seat me at #10.
Phyllis

racheld said...

HAPPY JOYFUL SEASON IN FULL SWING!! Pear Tree, please, with a chair where I can gaze longingly at that exquisite mirror on the mantel.

Kim said...

Well, #3 of course.I'm a sucker for red. Big surprise, huh? Hoping it was a lovely Thanksgiving! xo

wisps of words said...

#1...Naturally Lovely


Surprise hu? I didn't choose one of the reds!

Good luck with the biggg storm!

🎄 😊 🎄

Woody said...

Well, Simply Red # 3 !! That's my Choice and I'm sticking to it ! Woody

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

While I do love plaid...I am choosing #9.

Melanie said...

Please put me at #1 - Naturally Lovely. My husband would freak out over all those cloches - he doesn't like them for whatever reason. I think because at one time I was obsessed with them. Have threatened since then that I'm going to put his head under glass. ;-)

krishna said...

yes! at last I've come on right time. I would love to for table #1

Pam said...

I usually have issues picking just one and I want to move around, course you know that....anyway the table I liked the best came right to me as I scrolled past it. I did however look at the rest of them and no luck, number 2 is the special one. The one I pick!! If anyone else wishes to visit me they can move from table to table, staying right here soaking in all the beautiful color.

Jo said...

#5 A Dearly Loved Table for me, very festive.

Latane Barton said...

#3... love it's simplicity and the red.

mxtodis123 said...

I love Table 1.

Jeanie said...

#8 please. That red and white is perfect!

Nellie said...

Where do you find all these settings? I like #7, though the citrus is actually overdone for my tastes. That leaves my preference at #6. It's very festive without being so "in your face." Sending you many merry wishes for the season! Oh! I'll bring along my favorite casserole for dinner! :-) xoxo

CHERI said...

Well, this is certainly hard!!!!! I thought about #4 because I love the green glasses (which I have my husband's grandmother's antique ones like them)....but the Pear Tree really isn't my thing!!!! Then I thought about #8 because RED is my favorite color...but it's maybe a little TOO RED. So I went with #10 because I love the plaid and it's more "homey"...I'm not a formal type of person! Bless your heart for always doing this...I sure would have trouble keeping all this straight! Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving...now on to CHRISTMAS!!!

Buttercup said...

I'm going with number 9, simple and festive. It's the only one that I think I could actually duplicate, sort of. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and thanks for visiting Buttercupland.

Cecilia said...

Here we go - let's see if this worked! Table 1 please. It's very calming so maybe it will keep us crazies from being too cray-cray. Or not. 🤣
Cecilia

Deserae said...

Wow, they are all so beautiful it is hard to pick just one!!! I think #7 is my favorite?!?!?
~Des

Shelia said...

Diana! Hi, my sweetie! How are you doing? Well, I thank you and accept the dinner invitation and I'll sit at table number 5! I pray you had a lovely Thanksgiving and now we are in December. Yep, I saw and deleted forever that old spammer! I hate it when they do that! Thank you for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Wow, the tables are so cute. Looks like a lot of people selecting #5. I shall pick something different, #2 Jewels Galorwe. .Happy December Diana.

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

Of course all of the tables are beautiful but I pick #5 A Dearly Loved Table!

Jenny the Pirate said...

DEFINITELY seat me at Table Number FIVE ... I'm a sucker for silver deer wearing red bows, and for white dishes, and I LOVE the swag with ornaments. Now look alive and make me a mince pie for dessert ... chop chop!!! xoxo

Laurie said...

If you help me to the table I’ll take anyone of them👍,, take care my friend,,

ckrut said...

I have to pick #4. Love the colors-especially the pears and the glasses. I'm kind of shy so hope there's someone at our table who likes to talk!


ckrutjo (Cindy)

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Diana, I will choose #5, A Dearly Loved Table. Because we are all so dearly loved this time of year and I have been slow to get started for the Christmas decorating so I would dearly love a place at your table. Hope your Thanksgiving was grand as was ours. We had a White Thanksgiving so here's hoping the same for Christmas..xxoJudy

Jan Edmonds said...

#3 Simply Red please. At first glance the table looked a little too simple, but on closer inspection I saw the lips of the plates are in green leaves giving some additional color to the table. The table is a good size to accommodate a large group. Looks like you may also have some help from Martha Stewart, if you go with this one. Jan E.

Ellen D. said...

#5 is my favorite! Love the vintage colors!

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

Simply Red caught my fancy, although I was torn between #3 and #1, so #3 it is. I'd say with all these comments, we are going to be a bit crowded at these tables, lol! Hope you are doing well Diana, blessings :)

Red Rose Alley said...

Put me down for the plaid, #10 - I love it! It's cozy and nice.

Enjoy this wonderful Christmas season, Diana. : )

~Sheri

Creations By Cindy said...

Well dear Lady, I think I will sit at table #5 but now if it's full I will gladly sit at table #8. Love this! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Debbie-Dabble Blog and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Diana,
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I pick #3!!
Hugs,
Deb

Dewena said...

Emphatically, I choose #1! But for a chance to sit at your dinner table I would happily sit at any table setting you choose to do. I'm sure the food and the conversation would be so fabulous that I might not even notice the centerpiece.

FabShabbyRoses said...

I absolutely love Naturally lovely! It is just gorgeous! Glad to be visiting blogs again! I've been gone a while! I have some reading to do to catch up! LOL! Wishing you wonderful holidays! Hugs, Carolyn
