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.

Summer Time. Summer Time.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was getting 
back from a two week
Break as you all know.. I have miss you all.. 
But now I'm back. I also did use my pink
depression glass in between my plates as you can see.

Do you all remember my stoneware from Italy? 
The pattern is Furio Pink Flower. 
My salad plate is for Shrimp,mango and cucumber so good.

This is my dinner plate. I know you are wondering 
what't for dinner ??
We are having Prosciutto and basil wrapped Shrimp.
 yummy. This recipe was from Whitewater cook book.
This was a win from the Kitchen Witch great book.
Thanks Lyndsay.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!!

I use my white Soup Tureen~~
For my Hydenea and Magnolias Centerpiece.

Looking down at my placemats and flatware~~

The custard cup will have a brownie on the bottom
with Vanilla ice cream on top maybe some chocolate syrup
on top...

I did use my Vintage napkins and  
my napkin rings from Target. !!

By putting a black tablecloth on my table, 
just makes my Ribbon Lace just pop. 
I love a candle light dinner it
really sets the mood for my guests" 
lets have a glass of wine OK.

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.

Yippee! You're back! Welcome home! I like the way you used the black linen as a neutral background. It really helps everything else on the table to take on a prominence. Pretty dishes, and the menu sounds REALLY good!!! Mmmmmm...shrimp! I am so hungry right now! We are going to dinner soon, so I think I know what I'll be ordering now! :-) Welcome back, and have a great week!!!!!

Excellent setting and I love that china pattern :0) My Mother-in-las had a luncheon set with that pattern and I loved it. She gave it a friend of hers and I almost cried.

Hi Diane, Haven't been by in a while, thought I'd come see how your table was set today. What a nice setting and I LoVE the flatware!

Art and Sand said...

Those white cutwork napkins are so lovely. We eat all of our meals with cloth napkins. I just made some white napkins with a little ruffle all around to mimic some I saw on a post from Cabin & Cottage. I got mad at my husband for spilling his red wine the first night we used them, but I realized they will be the easiest to keep spotless.
Thanks for all your inspiring settings to enjoy.
