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.

~~~Tablescapes for just us Ladies~~~

I decided to have a dinner for my lady friends
before going Christmas Shopping ~~
Lets  light the candles~~

The butterflies on my napkins are a keepsake gift
from me to my friends to take home and
perhaps hang on their Christmas Tree.
I did my centerpicece with a wire basket filled with
apples and pine cones, then added Magnolia
flowers just for a little elegance.
I used my ever day dinner plates and my top plates
with the butterflies that I purchased from Pier One.
I love the color blue so I used blue candles to
highlight my blue tablecloth and blue soup bowls
to match my glasses.
I hope you all come back !!! Please take a moment
to comment and Thank you so much ! Have a great
time with your Tablescapes and Seasons Best to All !!
