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.

Texas Chili Dinner Tablescape

I decided to set up my Tablescape in my kitchen eating
area this time. Chili does not look good on my Tablecloth!
The little sombrero basket is for flour tortillas!!

I purchased my dishes from Pier One five years
ago and the pattern is called Jade Leaves.
The Chili Tureen was purchased at a garage sale
two years ago. I put the Tureen on lazy susan
with serving bowls around the Tureen. It make it
much easier to " pass the chili "!

Great tablescape! I'm glad to know the name Jade Leaves -- I bought ONE salad plate at Pier 1 a few years ago to use on a bookshelf, and now I wish I'd bought more! Love that tureen, too!
