I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

Earth Day/ Tablescape.

My Inspiration for my Earth Day Tablescape was, getting some
flowers yesterday from Home Depot and putting them in this 
sweet tool box.!!!
My dinner plate and soup bowl are from the
Dollar tree store. The color is aqua with a brown rim. I did use
a light green placemats for a Spring look.

My centerpiece is a mix of flowers going in my Garden on Sunday.
My Hubby made the tool box in school a long time ago. 
He was eight years old.

I did add some birds !!!
Just for fun~~~

I purchased my salad plate with the butterfly from
 Pier One !! some time ago.!!!



I hope you have a Wonderful Earth Day with your 
Family..

I hope you all come Back!!

2011 Easter Tablescape.

My Inspiration for my Tablescape was my love for Easter ~~
I had to re'post because this is going to be my table this year also.
I love all the pastel colors of Easter and tried to use
as many on this Tablescape.
I purchased my Victorian ruffed round Placemats on Ebay.

My China is vintage and the pattern is called
Apple Blossom by Haviland.
My plates have cream and green with pink apple blossom's.
This dinner plate is 10 1/2 "
The parfait glasses on the salad plates will be filled
with pink,yellow and green Sherbert and topped with cool whip for dessert.
I did my centerpiece with a wine wreath with pastel
colored Easter Eggs. I did add a cake dish in the middle
for some height, then placed my Bunny Vase on top and added some 
Spring flowers.. 
My little Bunny's are taking care of the Cabbage bowl
with the Easter Eggs. 
I hope you all have a wonderful time putting your
Easter Tablescapes together!! have Fun..
I hope you all come Back!!
