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.

Small Touch Of Fall

My Inspiration for this Tablescape~~
Was all the fall colors in the stores right now!!!
The colors in my dishes are like looking
at a Sunflower, soup bowls remind me of a
Autumn leaf off a big oak tree~~
I purchased the soup bowls from Wal-Mart..

I know you Remember my lovely dishes from the past!!
I do mix with other dishes all the time~~
This is Tablescape # 52
This is my new Pie plate from the
Family Dollar Store !! four for $2.40 great for Apple Pie ~~
Can you see the two apples on top sweet.?
My one napkin is a rust color to go with the soup bowls.
 I did add light yellow to go with the napkin rings.
The Ceterpiece is a combination,
Of  lots of fall colors with some corn stalks just for fun..
I only have three layers of dinnerware this time..
Let's all have a glass of wine. OK..
I know you need to know what's for dinner..
# 1 Corn Chowder.
#2 Stuffed pork chops, with cornbread dressing .
#3 Baked squash .
For dessert Rice pupping. I hope you come for dinner...

I hope you all come Back !!!
Please take a moment to comment.
Thank you so Much !!
Iam linking up with these Blog for there linky parties.

Alycia Nichols said...

Hi, Diane! You have really done a great job mixing and matching all the beautiful fall colors to create a tablescape that really speaks to the season! The leaf bowls are my favorite. They are really deep instead of skimpy. I like to have lots of soup or chili in my bowl! :-) You'll be able to get a ton of use out of those great apple pie plates, too! (In my best Bubba from "Forrest Gump" voice): Apple pie, apple cobbler, apple fritters, apple dumplings, apple Betty........" :-) Very nice! And the corn chowder sounds wonderful!!!

Jo's This and That said...

Ginger said...
