From time to time, this blog has mentioned Ventfort Hall, a huge, old mansion that was saved from the wrecking ball by volunteers.
For a peek at the mansion at Christmas time, go here.
There have also been Designer Showcases at the mansion. Check one out here.
The displays inside Ventfort Hall are constantly changing.
Table settings are often elegant and resplendent with beautiful china, silverware and floral centerpieces.
Old silver sets are often displayed in the mansion as well.
Feast your eyes on the tables in this post.
Wouldn't you love to welcome guests to dinner at this table?
Of course, who could have a posh dinner without candlelight?
For more about Ventfort Hall, check out their website here.
Anyone who is so inclined to donate toward continued restoration will find instructions on the website.
Preserving old buildings is always a plus, don't you think?
DO YOU BELIEVE IN RESTORING OLD BUIDLINGS OR DO YOU GO FOR "NEW?"
