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 my new Friends~~~

My neighbor ask me to put a tablescape together
for her dinner party this week end I said I would
love to~~ so I had a dinner for them ~~
The Christmas keepsake on my napkins are one more
gift for my new friends to take home and perhaps
hang on their Christmas Tree ~~~
I used my everday dinner plates on this Tablescapes,
the pattern is called Strawberry Festival
By Studo Nova.~~
I did my Centerpicece with a old Country water
 pitchee with my Magnolia flowers,

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!!

The birdies on the napkins look wonderful and what a great take home gift for your neighbours! I've been asked to do a few tablescapes for friends this season and though I feel more "pressure" it has been fun!
