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.

Two Tablescapes For Thanksgiving.

My inspiration for my two Tablescapes was having family and friends
over for Thanksgiving Day, so I did need more room to sit down to eat.

I did this centerpiece just for this Thanksgiving dinner.

I have five layers of china on the gold charger.
The pattern is called Miami by Theodore Haviland. This was my 
Mother-in-law's china, she had great taste.

Dessert plate.

Salad plate.

Dinner plate.

I made my napkins for Thanksgiving three year ago.

I did add some wild turkey feathers to my centerpiece.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day.
Coming up in 17 more day's.
This is my other Tablescape for Thanksgiving Day.
Just 17 more days before the Turkey goes in the oven.

I would like to thank you all so much for all your
sweet comments this past year's! I see you all as part of my family.
This is the coffee and wine Buffet..

Since my family is coming over to join me on Thanksgiving Day, I'm not doing to much cooking. 
I am covering the basics such as the turkey, dressing, and gravy, My guests are bringing the 
open dishes of assorted foods to complete our meal.

From my family to your family, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


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.
