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.

~ French Country Side ~

My inspiration for this tablescape was a Magazine, of a French County side !!!
The tablecloth is Vintage the 1940's
I purchased my dinnerware from Kroger with 30% off ~~
Dine by HD designs !!!
This is the salad dishe
Now this is the dinner plate !! Dark blue and Yellow ~~
The vase was from Garden Ridge, then filled with spring flowers ~~

I hope you all come Back!!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!

Hi Diane!

I love that beautiful pitcher. Fantastic!

I haven't been to Garden Ridge for ages. Maybe I'll put that on my To Do List.

I just love the look of this, Diane. Not only is the color combination one of my all time favorites, but I think those dishes are wonderful and can not believe that you found them at Kroger of all places.

It's all so lovely!

I can hardly wait for school to simmer down a bit so that I can enjoy some tablescape time.

Kroger? Seriously??? Those dishes are beautiful!!! They have such a great spring/summer look, and your flowers go perfectly alongside them. Kroger. Unbelievable. I'm headed to Georgia in a couple of weeks or so, and I may just have to take a detour from business to duck into a Kroger store! Great table!

Entertaining Women said...

The motif in your tablecloth leads the eye to the wonderful pattern in your dinner plates. The yellow reminds me of the fields of Southern France. Thank you for sharing your lovely design. Cherry Kay
