Tablescape Thursday - Japanese BBQ

I posted a Chinese New Year tablescape last week using my Corelle "Cherry Blossom" dinnerware!  Thought I'd share a post from last summer ... using the same dinnerware for an outdoor Japanese BBQ!  (I'm actually not a fan of Corelle ... but loved this pattern!)  I'm linking to Sunday Favorites, so make sure you click through the meme on the left to visit the party!

From June 2010

We recently celebrated the birthdays of two of the guys in our circle of friends ... with a Japanese BBQ on our deck. Our meal began with Rumaki, Salmon Sushi and Coconut Shrimp Pastries ... then we moved on ... to a wonderful pear salad, grilled Teriaki Beef Filets with stir fried vegetables and rice dumplings! We poured a little hot sake and enjoyed a birthdy cake decorated with two of their favorite things ... golf and the Rotary logo! One turned 78 and the other turned 80!


  1. That's a very beautiful setting and the food looks very delicious!
    God Bless<

  4. What a beautiful setting! I really like how you did the napkins with the rings and the chopsticks. The food looks delicious!

  5. What a pretty setting. The food looks fantastic. I want to come to your party!

  6. I love the pink flatware with those pretty plates, and the addition of orange in the placemats and napkins ring was inspired! SO lovely! The food looks amazing!

  7. Beautiful tablescape...love the browns and oranges.

  8. Hi, this is so pretty decorated. The plates are lovely and the placemats as much as the napkin+rings complements the colors so well. I am amazed that you have even glasses with matching decor and the flatware, of course. What a delicious meal in a nice atmosphere. I think, your guests have felt treated very special.
    Greetings, Johanna
