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 With Le Chefs~

My inspiration for this Tablescape was this stoneware
I purchased from Kroger.!!!
I picked up four salad plates and four dinner plates for $16.00
with a discount of 30% !!
The pattern portrays chefs with big white hats and
black handle bar mustaches and is named Le Chef by HD Designs.
This is the Salad plate so sweet !!!
Dinner plate love the chefs~~~


This vintage crystal wine Decanter was a gift ~~
The tablecloth is black with a vintage style
embroidered table topper from Ebay !!
I hope you are having fun at my dinner party ~~
I did use my Vintage Stemware for this tablescape..

I hope you all come back!!! Please take a moment to comment and
Thank you so much for stopping by!
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.

Hi Diane,
Your tablescape is just great! Those chefs are so adorable, they make me laugh out loud. I think you'll have lots of fun using those! All your colors coordinate so well, and the tabletopper, napkins, and flowers are beautiful. I especially love the wine decanter. Stop by and see my tablescape if you have a chance. I FINALLY got another one done.

H Diane, sitting at any table with those cute dishes would be very much fun! I don't know where there is a Kroger's--I'll have to look it up! And the napkins you added really changed the feel of the table to more elegant, especially with the decanter! Very nice! Linda
