Ginger jar tablescape

Well good morning readers!  Hope everyone’s doing great today.  I’m back from the Brac and raring to share some tabletop eye candy with you lovely folks this week!  So what did you think of Joe Nye’s creations yesterday?  In my (humble) opinion, they’re the perfect blend of colour and whimsy, with a large dose of chinoiserie thrown in – and always make me want to throw a giant dinner party whenever I see them!

So anyway I thought today we’d take a closer look at the tablescape put together by Michelle Nussbaumer that I featured a while ago, with a specific focus on Chinese ginger jars and blue/white porcelain in general.


Sourcing affordable Chinese porcelain does tend to be tricky, but I’ve found OKA and Wisteria to be pretty good.  And 1stDibs is obviously your first port of call if you’re looking to invest in some antique pieces.  Anyway, here are my picks, let me know what you think!

    Hey Elly
    Love the fish jug! they have some like that in Mark’s bar at Hix. I kinda really want one!
    Do you know William Yeoward? (I don’t mean personally). You’d love his tablescapes. I’ve been lusting after his pineapple jars for years.

    Love this weeks blogs! Although Jimmy will give up on me if I come back with yet another set of wine glasses/tableware…the impending move will hopefully let me slip some under the net unnoticed!! Have found some gorgeous new plates in Anthropologie recently, seriously I could move in to that store.

    Will defo be trying something along the lines of the tablescape above for lots of people we have invited round for dinner parties in october. The OKA website is now firmly in my Favorites… x

      Ah great, glad you liked them!! Ha, Jimbo will never notice a few extra pieces of tableware, I say go for it and protest innocence if he sees them – I’ll vouch for you: ‘Yeh, she definitely bought them while we were in Madrid, think they were from El Rastro’, heehee.

      And I wholeheartedly agree re: Anthro and OKA. love them both. Enjoy the dinner soirees, let me know how the tablescapes turn out! xx
