Christmas Inspiration

I am here today to make you 
drool over fabulous dinnerware,
placesettings and tables - that is my goal!
Yes, I was drooling as I walked into
ZGallerie, probably my very favorite
home store.  Can you believe these
feather placemats?  I definitely am
making a copycat of these!!
(Although I love this store, it is
always a little pricey for me so I
love to get their things on sale!)

I picked up these napkin rings in aqua 
when I was there - they were on sale and 
I just adore them.

Just loving the aqua and
gold together.  I can see that on my table.

They really go over the top
on their tables.  I love their
huge centerpiece items.

Here they have the white feathers
with this darling little owl
nestled in the bowl.  Wow, this is
a snowy delight.

Their napkins and napkin rings
are just pure delight.

I am in love with their glassware
too, oh yes, and their furniture and
bedding and pillows and accessories -
so glad we have our own store.  We used
to have to go to California to drool
over ZGallerie!

I bet these sparkly turkeys are on sale now.
Watch for their sales and things become
a lot more reasonable.

Now might be the time to
prepare for next year's table.
Isn't this wood dining table 
wonderful too?

How simple would that napkin
ring be to make? Just grab some
inexpensive holiday picks and twist
them to make a napkin ring.
Don't you love this beaded placemat
too?  How could you decide what to get?

This beautiful fall setting is set off 
by the fabulous table and bench.  

Here is another example
of huge accessories used
on the table.  They really make
a statement.

More snowy owls for winter and ice.
I adore these square silver edged plates.

I love the layering of the placemats
here.  That is great inspiration.

These peacock placemats have 
been on my drool list for some time.

For anyone wondering what
a girl like me would want for
Christmas, just get me anything
at ZGallerie!

I hope you had to wipe a little drool
off your screan today too!
This is definitely eye candy.

I will be posting this with
Tablescapes Thursday


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Very pretty Jacqueline, lots of festive ideas:@)

  2. WOW, what fabulous eye candy! The settings are gorgeous, and all the elements, fantastic. We have no store near us but I will check online. Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!

  3. In my blog's side bar I can only see the first pic and I believe it was your own creation as it is really so much your taste. Elegant, Warm with a touch of bit-too-much that you always make look right.
    Your lovely daughter would love that theme wouldn't she? Aqua is her - ans yours too - color, after all. And to celebrate Christmas in it would add an enchanting layer to it. She might never recover ahahah
    I love the white and silver and owl touch. Minus the owl. Probably ;) I might consider saying you made me do it ahahah
    What a truly magical store. Dreams are priceless most of the times and some times they are expensive so I'm happy you got some sale from it for your own creations who will give them the run of their lives ahahah
    Enjoy The Season, Jacqueline!

  4. I was on Z Gallerie's site yesterday and spent a fair amount of time drooling! Those feathered mats caught my eye and I look forward to seeing your creation. This is a beautiful and cheery post, thank you!

  5. Z Galerie has the best table settings. I just took a bunch of pictures in our store too. A trip there makes me want to buy a whole a lot of new stuff.

  6. The peacock feather placemats are gorgeous. It must be hard to just browse in this store with hopes of what you want going on sale.

  7. I am drooling! Pretty pretty things. I especially like the sheer fabric napkins.

    Very nice store. Glad you found some napkin rings you like. Look forward to seeing you use them.

  8. Oh, Jacqueline, I absolutely LOVE ZGallerie! They have the most amazing accent pieces and tabletop ideas. Each time I go, I just want to redecorate my whole house! Lol!

  9. It is an amazing store. I have found so many things there, especially on sale. Love the feather place mats. In fact, I love it all.

  10. Oh my gosh, I would like eight of each tablesetting! LOL I love your header too!

  11. Now I just fell limp, sick, lifeless and helpless! I have purposely been avoiding going into Z Gallerie for fear of all the feelings I'm harboring at this very moment, most of all GREED!!! I want it all!!! I could have a heyday with those feathered chargers and EVERY SINGLE ITEM pictured!!!!!! I won't be able to sleep tonight, Jacqueline. I hope your conscience can take that! :-) :-) :-)

  12. Very beautiful ideas in that Z Gallerie for table settings for the lovely holiday season my friend.
    Thanks for sharing and for visiting. I like Disney, but not a fan.
