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.

Love is in the Air ~~


I am back doing my Tablescapes.
You all know how much I love  Valentine's Day.
Red and white dishes are great colors for putting this Tablescape together for this day of love.


I did add some baby breaths on my napkins just for fun.


My centerpiece is a mixture of red and white
carnations with lots of baby breath.


I did add a dark red tablecloth under my white
crocheted one
for some texture.

I love a candlelight dinner with a glass of wine,
so romantic.
 

 
 
 




I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine with the one you love.



You all know me by now how I love mixing

up my dishes!




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!

Hi Diane!
Good to see you back! I see you've put together a beautiful table for Valentine's Day! I love the little flower tucked in with the napkin ring...Your arrangement looks lovely- I love the baby's breath in there it really adds nice volume and cheerfulness! I like the deep red chargers they add a nice depth to the reds for Valentine's Day. Your tall candle votives add a nice romantic touch! Happy Valentine's Day Diane! Hugs...Liz
