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.

Blue Onion Tablescape

My inspiration for this Tablescape is my Blue Onion China that
I purchased on Ebay, You all know I love blue and white dinnerware ~~
I decided to add a bird to my napkins rings just for fun !!!
I'm using one vintage tablecloth with two other Topper's. I put a dark blue color under the Rose
embroidered tablecloth from Ebay~~~ So you can see how lovely it shows up !!!
I purchased new flatware from Home Goods in a dark blue and white pattern
and also dark blue and white place mats!!!
You all remember the soup bowls from Pier One ~~~
I just love this blue !! Lets light the candles and have a glass of wine !!!
The dinner plates are sitting on a dark blue glass charger...
I hope you all come Back !!! Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much !
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.

Great idea to layer the tablecloths! The dark blue really shows off the design of the top one. I love the shot of the whole table, and what cool flatware!

Beautiful table, Diane...I love the way the blue is peeking out from the cutouts of the top tablecloth. As much as I love green, a blue and white table is still my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

What a nice tablescape, Diann! I have some stoneware that looks very similiar to some I have that is called Blue Bonnet by Harmony House. I'll be using it in a tablescape next week.
