Table decor + home decorating


Playing in the Dishes is closing, and my extensive (and exquisite!) inventory is looking for new homes. If you appreciate and use beautiful things, I’d love to meet you.

My name is Susan Nowell, and I love creating memorable events. My lifelong appreciation for china, vintage linens, and beautiful tables (and decades of collecting) plus my training and experience in the field of Interior Design make me eager to share my collection and expertise with you. Whether you’re a tablescape aficionado or someone looking to purchase your first “something beautiful”, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
