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.

Apple Harvest Time.

My Inspiration for this tablescape was the
Apple Harvest Time~~ and my Birthday. I did use five layers of
dinnerware on this table and my red chargers for some pop.
I love red and white together...

I know you all remember my white flower dishes !
This is my red salad plate from Kohl's ~~
I purchased the Apple Harvest dishes from hidden treasures
consignments shop. Some time ago..
This plate is also from the same shop !
The pattern is Strawberry Festival.
Lets light the candles and have a glass of wine ok.!!
I hope you are having a good time.
I wish you all could have come to my Birthday party.
Oh, by the way!
My husband did all the cooking for my party. 
My husband is a good cook also.! He put this dinner together for me.
In the soup tureen is Sea food Gumbo with garlic bread on the side.
With crawfish salad, and broil main Lobster with lots of garlic butter.
For dessert Dark Chocolate Birthday cake.
I hope you all come Back!!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!!!
Iam linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.
