WISH Wednesday #15

Did you know that January 25th is the day to celebrate the life of the Scottish poet, Robbie Burns?   In his honour, I saved a pretty picture of a tartan tablescape for WISH (Weekly Inspiration for a Seasonal Home) Wednesday.

I love the simplicity of the piles of apples on the table, the red lanterns, the pretty embroidered napkins, the posey of leaves at each place setting, and of course the red tartans.  So pretty!


While we won't be having haggis or even drinking whisky, we can say the Selkirk grace that Burns wrote:

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
And sae let the Lord be thankit.


  1. Our fam always celebrates this day! :) You should hear of the sick things we've eaten (do not let my Grandma, Mom, or any other members of my family read this! :) )

  2. Oh Grace this is my kind of tablescape. I love the symmetry, the colors and the attention to detail. Definitely pinning this one!

  3. Beautiful picture Grace! I love apples and tartan together...they play off each other beautifully! Angie xo

  4. I love all things Scottish!!! You did a verra good job on this post, lass.....



  5. So lovely! How can a person not love tartan. :) Kit

  6. Lovely photo. My father-in-law used to host a Robbie Burns dinner party back in his younger days. It was one of those parties where you hoped to be invited... lots of fun, poetry reads etc.
