Hello! I am so excited to be here with my newest? and much anticipated contest, Tabletop Love. All I can say is you are incredibly talented and blew me away with the pictures you sent. I only wish I had room for more! This could easily warrant a best selling coffee table book on how to set a beautiful table. Absolutely wonderful, you are in for a mega treat but a very hard decision.

Unfortunately you can only choose two favorites here. The “winner” of this round will meet the winner of the second round (tomorrow) and we will have the big showdown on Thursday. Get your pen and paper ready, and happy voting. A few things to keep in mind….

 

Entrants were allowed to submit 2 pictures (so if you feel like you are seeing double, some submitted two pictures that were very alike)

Get a pen and paper ready, it will help to keep track of the ones you love:)

Tabletop Love had no limits….could be a holiday table, a buffet table, a family wedding, a special event they were part of planning….open to interpretation

When voting refer to the number ABOVE the picture (not below)

If you submitted a picture and don’t see it here, and got confirmation that it’s being included it will be in round 2 (unfortunately I had to turn some away I was chock full and even went a little over the 50)

Voting will end for this round on Wed. morning at 7am and round 2 will then be posted.

On Thursday morning the “showdown” between the two finalists will begin and a winner will be announced on Friday.

Am I glad I checked my email before I took off for work this morning, Tina! I have voted for I know which one, amongst all this beauty, is my favorite. I so wanted to be CLEVER and send you a photo of a MINIATURE table setting! HAHAHAHHA! But I never got around to it. Maybe next year, after I have my collection done of your chargers!

Big love comin’ atcha, Anita

I can’t believe how many beautiful tables were submitted. I had a hard time choosing because there were like 8 that i really loved but I managed to narrow it down to 2, a difficult task!
This is a great contest Tina.

jeanne’s romantic tablescape pulls at my heartstrings and fills me with tranquility so for me, its understated elegance is the crowning glory amid the beautiful competition. DREAMY is always what i aim for! hope this finds you calm and collected or as C&C as is possible in december! peace, mama.

I always get so inspired seeing what other people are doing with their tabletops! Thanks for gathering all these fantastic photos together, Tina. I can’t wait to see what’s in store tomorrow.

Hope you are having fun with your holiday decorating this week! XOXO

Oh goodness! So many beautiful tables to choose from. There is something I like about each and every one:) This is a great idea Tina ~ we appreciate all of the work that goes into doing this. I’ll look forward to participating next year!

All so wonderful I loved 4 and 35 but I have to say it was too hard to choose!

Hello, Tina!

It’s so great to be back here!!! 🙂 I missed your posts! I had been so busy with everything around here, but I am glad to take this time to visit you today.

You really have some very talented readers around here, eh?! Whoa!!! I really can’t choose one. I feel that each and every one is beautiful because they all have a special touch to them. They’re all winners!!!

Wishing you a very Blessed week, my friend!

Absolutely breathtaking!!

So difficult to choose because they are all beautiful, special and festive. Gotta say I love, love #4! Pretty and fresh!! I’m off to cast my vote on the survey. Thanks for hosting this contest, Tina.
Cheers~

I’m dying to know what kind of placemats were used on Table Setting 32–what brand–where to purchase. Tina, can you help with this?

Oh, you make things so fun for all of us! I love #1 and also #20. Can’t wait to see round 2!! xo

Pretty Pink Tulips on

Good Lord, these are amazing!!!!! What a talented group of readers you have. I’m taking lots of notes on how to make my table pop for the holidays!!! WOWZA!

And, so wishing I could have been sitting in front of your fire today. So darn dreary. I need the sun to return! It’s not even winter yet!!!

Beautiful table settings, my vote however, is for #9 & #35. Gorgeous, warm, inviting & festive. Wish I had the gift of creating these.

They’re all so lovely — some breathtakingly beautiful — and all were decorated with love. Love of our homes and families. I find it impossible to vote. Each one is delightful.

Bill on

Great site and wonderful Ideas. Regarding the table top voting, I am concerned that there is flawed methodology in the polling process. In round #2, I tested the process and voted twice for setting #1. It immediately showed my two vote increase in the polling results. If that is an acceptable factor it should be disclosed upfront for the sake of transparency and fair play. Thanks for listening and I look forward to your response. Bill

Something about 14 and 27 made me want to be a guest at their dinner table. Perhaps pondering world politics over a nice glass (or two) of wine. Instant cozy feeling – surely there must be a fireplace nearby? Loved the pop of orange. I want to stay and linger for a few hours!
