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.

~~~River Rock Tablescapes~~~

I purchased my napkins and the green napkin rings
from Pier One. I was lucky to find them both on sale.
My vase is full of yellow roses with baby breath
that I bought from my Randall's food store for only
$4.99. I had so many flowers leftover I did one more
flower arrangement !!!
We love to have family and friends over for dinner!!
My vase also has a glaze. If you look close it has
the same look as the Stoneware! I purchased the
vase from the Family Dollar store.
I purchased my stoneware from the Wal-Mart!
The name of the dinnerware is Bazaar !!
Salad dishes
Dinner plate.
My inspiration for this Tablescape is from a
walk alongside a river bed. So beautiful with the
sun shining on the water and all the colors of the
I hope you all come back !!!
Please take a moment to comment and thank you
so much ! Have a great time with your Blog.

This is such a great table! I am loving all the neat new china at Walmart, and I love the way you accessorized this. That vase cannot have come from the dollar store! It looks very expensive, and I can't believe you got all those flowers for $5! I want to go shopping with YOU! Enjoyed seeing your tablescape and wanted to wish you a very Happy Tablescape Thursday...

Don't you love it when you find great things on sale. The napkin ring is the perfect punch of color. I agree, this looks like walking along a river. Very Pretty dishes, I was just looking at all the great Wal Mart dishes the other day.
