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.

Veterans Day This Monday.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was having
some friends over for Veterans Day dinner this coming Monday.

A special thanks to all of the Veterans today and all of those
that are presently serving in the Military and their families.
God Bless you all!

I purchased my poppy salad dishes and the soup bowls some
time ago from Ross, for $12.00 for both sets of four.

 My Centerpiece ~~ I put together some time ago with
silk Poppy Flowers. Time to light the candles.

I love candle light with dinner.

I love the red poppies on the plates with the
white back ground. I did use my red chargers to keep
the colors together for this Tablescape.

You all know!! I always mix my plates
with other dishes. I also hope you have a wonderful
Veterans Day on Monday with your family.

The white dinner plates are from Pier One.
I  only have four layers of plates this time. I put a red tablecloth under
the Vintage embroidered table topper with the red poppy flowers.

I hope you all come Back next week !
Please take a moment to comment.
Thank you so much!
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties this week.

Oh Diane, you put me to shame!
I've got to try tablescaping one of these days.
I set a rather drab table by comparison.

Hi Lady D!
OMG!!! I found you. Since my blog or Blogger gave me problem that all my list of fave blog was gone, I could not find your link.

Now, so happy to see you at last! Wow, drooling with your settings once again.

Happy Tuesday.

Greetings from Stockholm,

You are just too sweet! Do you know that you're a no reply blogger? If you go into the settings on your blog, you can set it so that your e-mail will show when you leave a comment. At least it will for the person who gets the comment.
Just an idea to make it easier for ladies to reply to your comments.

Diane this table is beautiful and seeing poppies always reminds me of the year I was in England on their "Remembrance Day". Poppies were everywhere. Your post has such a great message. We should never forget what our veterans have done for us - I am definitely thankful for every one of them!
