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.

My Mothers Day Dinner~

My inspiration for this Tablescape was Mothers Day ~~~

I made my napkins a long time ago ~~ I purchased the 
yellow flower rings from Pier One.
The glasses on the soup bowls will be filled with cold Shrimp ~~
My Blue willow soup bowl ~~
My Vintage Schumann Arzberg fruit plates are from Bavaria Germany.
I purchased my Victorian yellow ruffled round
placemat's from Amazon.
Will its time to eat ladies !! I do hope you like Sea Food !!
I hope you all had a Womderful Mothers Day~~
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. I hope you come

Beautiful. The blue and white dishes are lovely and those placemats are adorable with their ruffled edges.

Kathleen said...

It looks lovely! Blue and white is always classic!
That wasn't a lake in my post, it is Bay, which goes out to the Atlantic Ocean. :)
My sister lives near Dallas, but always loves to get back home for a visit to the ocean. When you grow up here, it is hard to give that up.

This is just beautiful. The color palate is perfect!

I always love the combination of blue and yellow. It is such a fresh combination and I never get tired of it. Your napkins are perfect with the dishes and I love those flowers!

Denise said...

Hi Diane,

This table is SO pretty!! I always love blue and white, and Blue Willow is definitely a classic. I really like the vintage Bavarian Fruit plates, but I am definitely loving those napkins! Toile is one of my very favorites!! We are at the beach this week, so seafood sounds great to me.

Hi, Diane!

I am so jealous of your classic Blue Willow. That is one pattern that I have not yet been able to acquire! It looks so beautiful here with the yellow accents.

Hope you had a great Mothers Day!

I love everything about this tablescape! The Blue Willow, the etched crystal, the Bavarian fruit plates and those sweet ruffled yellow placemats. The flower napkin rings add a nice touch of color, too. Very nice!

Marigene said...

Beautiful table...Blue Willow is one of my favorite patterns. Love the napkins.


Oh Diane, this is beautiful, great tablescape for Mom's Day...hope you had a wonderful one. I love your Blue Willow china, I wish I could have one, there's non around here, maybe in antique shops. Your toile napkins are so pretty and you made them...now, maybe that I can do?! The etched crystal and the Bavarian fruit plates are just so gorgeous and the raffled place mats brings the place sets together... you have such pretty elements to stage such stunning table!
Lots of hugs.

Hi Diane,
