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.

This Tablescape is for all my follower's and friend's.
My Hubby and I are taking some time
off for family for Christmas ~~~.
I purchased my Red Cardinal at Stein Mart a year ago.

The snowmen glasses are from the Dollar Tree store, 
also a year ago.

I put my Centerpiece together with a old wreath I had and
dress it all up for Christmas hope you like it ~~

My sweet Red Cardinal ~~

I would like to thank you all for your sweet comments.
This past year on my Tablescapes ~~ so this Christmas Card is for you!!
Warmest thoughts and Best Wishes for a Wonderful  Merry Christmas and

Let's light the candle's at your table and have a glass of wine.

I hope you are having fun at your Christmas party.

I hope you and your family have a Happy and Healthy
Holiday and New Year...

Wow! Everything looks so-o-o beautiful! I love to see the colour red at Christmas! The cardinal is one of my favourite birds although I have never seen one. I have several figurines of it in my collection. I have also seen pictures and cards featuring this bird. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Hi Diane,
what a lovely tradtional Christmas table, very beautiful, and I love cardinals, my favorite bird. They are such a lovely addition.
Hope you have a wonderful time in Florida with your family. Hope you know it will be a warm Christmas,
we live in the Orlando area and it is suppose to be 76 degrees! Typical for us tho...............
was hoping that it might be cooler,
but oh well, it's all good....

Have a Very Merry Christmas,
Blessings to you and yours,
Nellie
