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.

Tablescape With Poinsettias.

was having lunch with my lady friends before
going Christmas shopping
Christmas Day is my HUBBY Birthday .

I did my centerpiece using one of my small Christmas Tree. On the back
wall is my new Folding tree from Ebay.
The tree has all the lights and Poinsettias on it in the box love it
No Work for me.

I did us my red tablecloth with my
crocheted on top I hope you all like this Idea.

 The Christmas keepsake on the napkins are a gift to my
friends to take home and perhaps hang on their tree.
The photo below is the dinner plate.

 I purchased my new dinnerware from the Good Will for $10.00
the pattern is Holiday Magie ~~ porcelain China 20 piece service for four
and had never been used and was in the box.
I did use a dark red charger with four layers of China.

 I hope you all are having a wonderful week
doing your Christmas Tree and your Tablescapes.
I hope you all come back!
Please take a moment to comment and
thank you so much!
I'm linking up with these blogs for
there linky parties.

How your friends must have loved your handiwork as well as what was most likely a great time together. I so envy you who find such great things at thrift shops and wonder why I'm never so lucky.

Diane, I love the poinsettias on the trees. Your table looks perfect for the holiday season, the lace tablecloth pops over the red liner, setting the background for a festive holiday meal with your friends. Everything is lovely. Merry Christmas!

Diane, so pretty! Love your tree, but my favorite thing is that gorgeous crocheted tablecloth. I have always loved them, but I do not own one. I can crochet, but I am quite sure I would never finish making one. Your stemware is beautiful, too. Merry, merry Christmas!!
