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.

Sunday Lunch .

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was a Sunday 
lunch with my family.

I purchased my rooster salad dish from Ross for $ 1.49 each.
The pattern is Fruity Rooster.
This was a great find, seeing I'am all ways looking for dish's to mix with others.

Time to light the candles and have a glass of wine.

I purchased the Vintage placemat's  from  Hidden Treasures .50 cent each.

I also purchased the black soup bowls from Ross 
$ 1.00 each. This was a great day ..

My Centerpiece flowers came from Randalls. 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.


Will it's time to eat right!
First for the soup Chunky Chicken Noodle, with a spring mix salad ! with blue cheese dressing.
Then for the dinner Fry Chicken with potato salad and bake beans. 
Dessert chocolate cream pie so yummy.


I only have four layers of dinnerware this time
as you can see.

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.

Diane, your tablescape is lovely! I just love the rooster plates! That would look good on my table since I have laying hens, outside. Wished we had a Ross here! We only have TJ Max and everything there gets picked over quickly. We do have a Tuesday Morning, but they usually do not have many plates. Blessings from Bama!

Diane, You are so fortunate to have found the fruity Rooster salad plates. I love the flowers by Randall's (same as my Tom Thumb). The table is beautiful with all the different layers. This weather in the 70's here in Texas is a time to celebrate and be outside. I hope you have a wonderful and enjoyable week. Happy Tablescaping to a fellow Texan! Pam
