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.

~~~Dinner For Two ~~

My Inspiration for this tablescape was having a
Romantic dinner with my Husband~~
I have six layreds with the charger and wood placemat's.
This soup is Tuscan tomato & Basil bisque Yummy.
This new dinner plate is from Kohl's a week ago.
My centerpiece has lots of fall leafs, with white Hydrangeas
and lots of Candles for a Romantic evening.
I purchased the soup Tureen at Hobby Lobby a year ago...
I hope you are having a good time~~
The wine stemware was one of my Birthday gift from Linda.
Thanks sweet lady. Lets have a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.
and light the candles.
This was my dinner for this night with my Husband.
You know we had Tuscan tomato & Basil bisque soup~~ with a
Spring mix salad and blue cheese dressing, then for the dinner Slow cook Pot Roast
with mix Vegetables!! The next post was Dessert ~~
OH Yes Cream Puffs with Chocolate Syrup on top..
Yummy right.. The little cloches are from Ross.
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.
