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.

Victorian Tablescape.


My Inspiration for this Tablescape is my love for Victoria and Vintage.
I made my napkins for my pink,green and white dishes.
I use a rose color tablecloth and added my Vintage Crocheted 
one on top~~ My placemants are dark brown. Pink and brown
always go great together.

I purchase my pink depression glass plates on Ebay.
So sweet with my Apple Blossom china by Haviland.

I know you all remember my China.

I did my centerpiece with a old Birdcage and added 
a Robin Nesting with her eggs just for fun.
 Spring is in the air right.

Lets light the Candles and have a glass of wine.

I love the light from the candles on my Stemware !!
It is time to eat now..



I put a lovely German dinner together on Thursday night for family.
First a spring mix salad with blue cheese dressing, then for the 
dinner was Roast Duck, red cabbage and potato pancakes.
For dessert Peach with cool whip yummy.

I hope you all come Back!!

Beautiful, Diane! I ♥ the dinner plate pattern. You know crocheted tablecloths are one of my weaknesses...gorgeous!

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes And Cozy Home Kitchen said...

Each of your tables is beautiful, and this one is not an exception. Those china plates are so dainty and I love the robin in the cage. It's hard to find pretty robins that are not figurines, so I'll have to keep my eyes open for one. Thanks for sharing at the Your Cozy Home Party!

Everything is so beautifully put together Diane! I have to say I am swooning over the etched stemware. Those are such fabulous pieces. I used a little pink despression glass today too. I love your pretty napkins and how you dressed them up. You certainly know how to combine the vintage pieces.

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

A lovely table and I love your stems, beautiful!

TheStitchingCoop said...

There is a romatic moodiness in this setting that I am in love with. I love soft florals dishes set against the hard charger. Lighting is exquisite as always and the napkins, just enough detail to peak curiosity without overpowering. Nicely done once again. Hugs. T

Sandra said...

Very Beautiful table and your dinner sounds amazing! I love your stemware, very dainty.

I love the depression glass mixed with the china! What a perfect combo!
The bird cage is so cute- great way to decorate it! Beautiful stemware...all the soft pink looks wonderful with the candle lighting! This would be awesome outdoors too!

Traci said...

Very pretty! I have some little demitasse cups & saucers that resemble your pattern.

You have the best collection of napkins in blogworld! Yep, I'm pretty sure that is not an exaggeration. I've always adored the Apple Blossom. I think that it was one of Theodore's best designs. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay
