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.

~Repost Island Tablescape ~

My inspiration for this Tablescape was a trip to the
Island of Jamaica!~~~
 
I purchased this dinnerware from Kohl's and Pier One !!!
 
Will its time to Eat Ladie !!! I do hope you like grilled Jumbo Shrimp with
Mango Dip so good !!
 
How about some Justin Wilson's Louisiana Seafood Gumbo ~~~
 
My palm tree glasses are Hand Painted !!
I purchased from the Dollar Tree store for a $1.00 each ~~ Five years ago.
My centerpiece is mix flowers from the store, and my Garden~~
The red, and black parrot's are from Macy's
 
The light green placemats came from the Thrift Shop !! six for $2.00
I hope you had a good time with us on the Island of Jamaica~~~
 
I hope you all come Back!! Please take a moment to comment.
Thank you so much!! I am linking up with these Blogs for their linky parties !!

I sure enjoyed my trip to Jamaica! I'll play pretend for warm sunny climates any time as we are getting so much rain here in the eastern part of Canada. Your tablescape is just beautiful! Love the palm tree glasses! Pamela

What a great job you have done tying all the elements together. There is a lot of drama here as well as just plain fun. And thinking ahead, there is much you can use in December.

Hey that was enjoyable! Love these colors, very island like! The shrimp and mango salsa sound great! The flower shaped plate with the green and white floral bowls are perfect together! The parrots are the perfect touch as well as those painted palm stemware! Great combination!

Oh I VERY much enjoyed this table! You sure do know how to put a nice look together. Isn't it rewarding to find so many great thrifted pieces and combine them with what you have?

Pat said...

Hi Diane, I got your comment and was puzzled at what you said about missing my comments. I left one on your blue, white and yellow last week. It seems to have disappeared. There is also a comment from me on your Dessert Rose post,dated April 29th. I'm still checking but I remember those two recent posts in particular. Last week was the week of the great blogger dilemma, so my comment might have disappeared on that post.

Your table today, is lovely.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

I came back! I love your flatware sweetie, it looks vintage silver, just gorgeous! I'm also at Susans, TT.
Hugs

JudyBug said...

Love these dishes and the colors. You know, you can never run out of room for dishes. You just have to pare down other things...hubby's clothes, children's toys, bill drawers...you know...non essentials!!

SavannahGranny said...

Diane, I remember this. I love those glasses. I remember you used to have them on your header.
Great table!
