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.

Spring Is Coming.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was my love
for Spring ! All my flowers are in bloom right now wish you could see them.
I purchased this spring meadow yellow tablecloth from
Bed and Bath & Beyond with a 20% off. The green
placemats are from Ross. 
My sweet napkin rings are from Pier One for 79 cent each,
 this was a close out on them great for me..
You all remember my Theodore Haviland China. The pattern
is called Miami. And from France. I have a place setting for
eight. I need to take a photo of the hold set some time.
We had some friends over for dinner this past weekend so this
was my pick of China.
I hope you are having a wonderful Day!!
Lets have a glass of wine before dinner.
My centerpiece was yellow roses from Randalls.
 and  ferns from my garden.
Its almost time to Eat right.
My dinner ~ First a spring mix salad with cherry tomatoes, 
Ribeye Steaks and baked Potatoes with all the yummy on it. 
For dessert Apple pie with vanilla ice cream so Yummy.

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.
