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.

~~Just Us Two ~~

My Inspiration for this tablescape is just a romantic dinner with
my Husband ! Just the two of us.
I did use a black tablecloth and added one of my
Vintage style embroidered tablecloth as a topper!!!
I just purchased my vintage napkins from Ebay.
so sweet with the little Daisys.
My salad plate is from Home Goods,
and the dinner plate is Lotus by Poppytrail from Ebay.
I made my Napkins rings.~~
I would like to thank Michael Lee for her sweet Book.
It is time for some Candlelight !!
And have a cold glass of wine ~~ Right now it is 8:00 pm
with a temperature of 90 degree. Am I glad it has cool off !!!

I know you need to know what's for Dinner ...
Island Chicken on a skewer, and grilled pineapple with rice,
with a mango tossed salad !!!
I hope you are all having Fun.
My white bowls will be holding Tootsie Roll Fudge with
Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream and M&M's; sooo yummy!!!
This is for you Tootsie ~~ I love your Challenge sweet lady!
Ladies if you would like the Recipe for this just look up this link.

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.

Very romantic Diane! I think something like this would be very nice to enjoy with my husband before the surgery. Something beautiful to keep in mind! Love Di ♥

Oh and your menu sounds delicious!

Pamela Gordon said...

So pretty Diane. I like the yellow plates and the sunflower ones too. I love a 90 degree evening and I'd even go for an 80 degree one! But, I guess it'll be a 60 degree or less one tonight. You'd love that wouldn't you! Have a great week! Pamela

Lizabeth said...

I love this Diane, elegant and simple! The black tablecloth really enhances the topper! It kind of reminds me of the one my Mom has on her table right now! This looks relaxing and fresh! Love it!

Love this! I think I NEED a black tablecloth -- it adds such drama and really shows off that beautiful embroidered cloth. Your handmade napkin rings are wonderful!

Hi Dianne,
I just stopped over after your comment and I love what I see. You have some gorgeous tablescapes!

I just became a follower.

I am reading Gone with a Hansomer Man right now, too.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Dianne, this is such a fun table and romantic. Don't you love eBay? It's a shopper's paradise. And don't you just love Michael Lee's book? I thoroughly enjoyed it when I read it. I need to check out some of the recipes. I haven't been doing as much cooking lately. I love what you're serving, and I love what you're serving it on, including the vintage cloth.

Warm hugs (or should they be cool ones in this heat???)...

This is wonderful and romantic. Do you love Michael Lee's book? I did! I have sunflower plates too. Perfect for summer and fall.

JudyBug said...

Adore that table topper! I have such a weakness for pretty linens!

Savannah Granny said...

Sweet Diane. I love this table. You linens and the sunflower plates are so pretty. I have those same little doves. I have had mine for over 40yrs. Have you had those a long time. That dinner sounds so good. The temp is high but but your grass looks nice and green. I am still feeling the pain of that last water bill.

Debbiedoos said...

Hi sweet Miss Diane. Your table is so very sweet too. I love the touch of lace and pretty linens. You are such a romantic.
