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.

~~~Re' Post My Valentine's Day Tablescapes~~~

Sometimes I can't barely believe how lucky Iam to
be sharing my Tablescapes with you All...
You are all so sweet!!!
My inspiration for this Tablescape was 
Valentine;s Day!!! 2011
The red box's for a day of love is filled with
Chocolate kisses!! I did use a red tablecloth and
my crocheted one over It !!!
The focal point of my Tablescape is the
centerpiece, pink Carnations with pink Rose's and
some baby breath !!

I made my napkins one more time ~~~

You all know I'am a Romantic !!
Hi you know I love mixing my plates up with
Vintage and some from the Dollar stores.

I hope you all come back!!! Please take a moment
to comment and thank you so much! Have a great
Valentine's Day sweet ladies. I'am linking
up with these Blogs for there linky parties.

Your tablescape is lovely, and the theme is carried out in details. I love that you made your own napkins....how creative is that! And, some of the interesting dishes are from the $ store.....you certainly have an eye for mixing. I always say that it doesn't matter what something cost, the important thing is "how" you put it all together and you win that prize, for sure! Please, visit me at my new blog....

Graceful Moments said...

A beautiful tablescape! I love red and romantic tablescapes! I particularly love this one because your crocheted tablecloth is very much like one I have that my grandmother made that is about 40 years old. It is still in excellent condition and I use it only for very special occasions...usually over a red cloth! Thanks for sharing!

Yasmin Smith said...

Hi, Diane...I scrolled down further on your page after leaving my comment for the gorgeous red and white tablescape you created and I found this one from last year!! WOW!!
It is as beautiful as the other one!! I like your pink carnations and roses for the arrangement and everything looks so romantic!! I think making your own napkins is a bright idea,,,,
that way you can design what you want so it all blends in. I should drag out my sewing machine and try to make my own, too!!
Thanks for sharing this again as I did not see it before!
Hugs, Francy (Yasmin)
