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.

Earth Day/ Tablescape.

My Inspiration for my Earth Day Tablescape was, getting some
flowers yesterday from Home Depot and putting them in this 
sweet tool box.!!!
My dinner plate and soup bowl are from the
Dollar tree store. The color is aqua with a brown rim. I did use
a light green placemats for a Spring look.

My centerpiece is a mix of flowers going in my Garden on Sunday.
My Hubby made the tool box in school a long time ago. 
He was eight years old.

I did add some birds !!!
Just for fun~~~

I purchased my salad plate with the butterfly from
 Pier One !! some time ago.!!!



I hope you have a Wonderful Earth Day with your 
Family..

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.
