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 Italian Dinner.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was having my friends over for
a dinner party.~~
My dinner tonight is Lasagna !! I hope you like it ~~
You know!! I always mix my plates with other dishes ~~
I purchased my new set of four red poppy salad dishes and soup bowls from
Ross two weeks ago for $12.00 for both. I did add my yellow Lotus  from Ebay dinner plates to this Tablescape.
This is the Soup Bowl ~~love the red poppys on the white.
This is the lovely Salad dishes ~~
Let's light the candles and have a glass of Chianti red wine !!!
My centerpiece ~~I put together two years ago
with silk flowers.!!
I put a red tablecloth under the Vintage embroidered table topper with the
red poppy flowers~~So you can see how lovly it shows up !!
I hope you all enjoy the dinner!! I also 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.http://www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

Rettabug said...

Hi Diane!
What a delightfully decorated table you've set for your friends & what a delicious menu you have planned!
Those poppy dishes are very new to me...I've never seen them...they are very striking.

Love the Chianti in the wicker wrapped bottle. We used to save those, as we were told they weren't going to make them any more. I think they lied! LOL

Thanks for your kind words about the Talavera pottery.
I hope you have a lovely Mothers Day surrounded by your children & grands!

fondly,
Rett
