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.

Saturday Night Dinner.


My Inspiration for this Tablescape was having
new Neighbors over for dinner!!
  

You all remember my poppy dishes from Ross.
I did use my white charger plates from Pier One Imports.


My Soup Tureen is from a thrift shop.


You know, I always mix my plates with others dishes!!!
Let's have a lovely glass of wine!!
I wish you would all go see this new blog for me !
She is a sweet lady.



I did not use a Tablecloth on this dark wood table.
This way my bamboo placemats would stand out!!

I hope you all come back.  Please take a moment to comment.
I am linking up with the following blogs:

Hi Diane, What a lovely tablescape to welcome your new neighbors. I love your pretty square plates, such lovely colors. The poppy theme design on the plate and the flowers on the napkins are all pulled together with the lovely centerpiece. I always love how you mix and match. Gorgeous flatware and candleholders. I'm sure your neighbors appreciated the beautiful dinner!

Hi Diane!
Your table looks wonderful! How nice of you to set a table for your new neighbors! Your napkins woke a memory up of mine from when we were first married. I had some table linens that looked similar to your napkins! What a fool I was for not keeping them!
