Tablescapes, Villa della Luna Giveaway!

Today’s the day! The Villa della Luna Giveaway!

This gorgeous Pfaltzgraff dinnerware is enchanting, and so versatile…I have had a LOT of fun playing with it…


It looks great outside


It looks great inside


It looks great set on a casual bar top for 2~

it looks fabulous everywhere!


It is happy in the garden


or at a  fiesta


And on a picnic table by the sea~


This Pflatzgraff pattern, Villa della Luna was inspired by a delightful book “Dancing with the Moon”

Authors Jana Kolpen, “art that makes you smile,” and Mary Tiegreen take the reader on an adventure in learning and love through life’s pleasures of good food, wine and travel.


When Mademoiselle J travels to Italy, she stays at the enchanting Villa della Luna where she is invited to sit on the red couch.


The artwork on the platter is the same as the delightful watercolors throughout the book and the red couch is encircled with these words, “Mademoiselle was invited to sit on the extremely long wine-colored couch”


This glazed stoneware platter is a limited edition Anniversary piece  celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Villa della Luna


Pflatzgraff, a division of Lifetime Brands,  has generously offered to give one of my  lucky readers four, 5 piece place settings of Villa della Luna, AND an  Anniversary platter!  Wow!


Each piece is different and has lovely details and character~ the shape of the salad plate is so unique!


The lovely colors provide many possibilities for mixing and matching~ bright blue, rich yellows and soft green, all in a wonderful blend with warm terra cotta.  I was drawn to this pattern because of the colors and hand-painted look of the pieces.  I think the bowls are my favorite, aren’t they stunning!


The pedestal mugs are elegant in shape, and the smallest plate can be used as a saucer, a bread and butter, or dessert plate.  Don’t you love the bright blue center.  These smaller plates repeat the pattern on another 10th Anniversary piece, the Parmesan Bowl with spoon.  All the little details of this pattern make it so special~


The platter  and Parmesan bowl have an anniversary stamp on the back/bottom


so sweet!



If you’re not serving soup or salad, you can always use the bowls decoratively!


Doesn’t this take you straight to bright, vibrant, sunlit Italy?


Put some fresh orange and basil on your table for an intoxicating aroma





My outdoor table isn’t big enough for serving pieces so we often pull up a side table


The anniversary platter is a great size


I did find my own red couch to hold some seaside touches in the table center 🙂






Tomorrow I will show you how to create this easy centerpiece with Villa della Luna~
