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.

Christmas Tablescape In Blue.

Welcome to my Blue Tablescape for Christmas.
This is my first table with blue and silver with a touch of Gold for the
Christmas Holidays.. I hope you like this one.

I purchased all my dishes from the Dollar Tree Store. Isn't this
Amazing you can put a Tablescape setting for four together for $ 20.00 ! The chargers 
and the white snow ice crystal are just for some pop.

I did use the same tree for my centerpiece, but put all new colors on it for my
Blue Tablescape. All the ornament are also from the Dollar Tree store.
Hope you are having fun !

The tablecloth is blue with matching napkins from Wal-Mart.

The blue stemware also from the Dollar Tree store.

Evert thing is bright and sparkling with the Silver!
I do have a touch of Gold.

Let's have a glass of wine !!

The pine cones are free for the asking...

I hope you all had a wonderful week with your family
Love you all, and have fun with your Tablescapes for Christmas.

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.

Every table you set is always stunning. I can't believe the things you can find at the Dollar Tree. I love this table and the snowflakes peeking out from underneath is such a sweet touch. Happy holidays to you and your family Diane. xo

I love to do a blue and white table around Christmas. It's always a nice break from all the red & green. Yours is lovely and on a great thrifty budget. hugs, Linda

Pamela Gordon said...

What a pretty tablescape. I find it amazing that your Dollar Tree stores carry such pretty dishware and decorations. We have Dollarama here with a few nice things but not the variety you have for sure. Blessings, Pamela

Gina said...

What a lovely tablescape! You always have the prettiest tables, Diane. It's hard to believe you designed this table with Dollar Store finds.

My Profile said...

Firstly, thank you so much for leaving such lovely comments on my blog. I couldn't work out how to get to your own blog as the link didn't work for me :(... Anyway I am here now and what a beautiful tablescape you have done for Christmas. Gosh, it puts mine to shame but I do realise that this is your specialty and gosh, you are certainly great at it.

The tree is stunning and has inspired me to add some more silver to mine for Christmas day. I also love the way you have done your napkins, they look so beautiful, soft and pretty.

I will definitely be visiting for more inspiration.

Thank you for sharing with the world.

The glassware and bowls I love and yes the whole table is lovely! My Christmas table is done and all photograped but my only child surprised us this morning and we are thrilled he is staying all week!

Ginger said...

As you know I'm not a blue person BUT I do love the blue and silver together. I also love the nature items you've tucked into this tablescape. My favorites are the birds, the pears, and the snowflakes.
Another success, dear lady.
I need a little tablescape advise. I purchased a new set of dishes from QVC this year. It is called Old World in yellow. I want to use them for Christmas. I don't care about them being yellow. But I do want a Christmasy type theme. I'm thinking something white. My tablecloth is maroon. It matches the center of the yellow flower in the dishes. I can post a pic if needed. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Til next time...God bless and Merry Christmas.
Ginger

My friend, your blue Christmas table is sooo beautiful! I love both the silver and gold paired with the blue. It just looks so rich and elegant, Diane! I love that your beautiful place settings are from Dollar Tree! You are absolutely right...with a little creativity a fabulous table can be set...very inexpensively. I love the tall Christmas tree used as the table centerpiece...and that you color coordinated the ornaments. It really looks fabulous! Ohhh yes...and I have a "thing" for pears! Hehe! Love those pretty golden pears, my friend!

WOW!!! What a lovely table all in blues!! I can't believe you purchased the china, stemware, etc. at the Dollar Tree for $20.00!
That is amazing, and isn't it fun to find such pretty items for so little money...and see how you can arrange them in this gorgeous setting!!
I am enjoying seeing all of your tablescapes and the different ideas
you have used to create each in a
different theme! You are such a talented lady, though!
Again, thanks for sharing...Yasmin
