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.

February 14 Is Coming.

Valentine's Day is only four weeks from now!

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was my love for putting 
a Victorian table together for this coming 
Valentine's Day just for you all.

I purchased this lovely plate from Ross some time ago.
for only $3.99 each. I had to have all four of them. the pattern
is called Amore Rose.

I had made my Victorian Menu cards for 
this Tablescape.

I did add some ruffled to the placemats
for a Vintage and Shabby look!

I only had three layers of dishes.

I know you are all thinking about Valentine's Day now.
I hope you all have fun putting your Tablescape together !!

My Centerpiece is a mix of pink mini Carnations and
pink Alstroemeria..

This plate has the words LOVE can you see it ?

I Purchased this dessert plate from Ebay some time ago. The pattern reads
Bavaria Schumann. As you can all see I did put pink and red ribbon through
the holds on the plates just for show.

Time to light the Candles and have a glass of wine.

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! Oh, here you go again creating a beautiful tablescape! I love the romance of it. Those little heart plates are so pretty. Isn't that something that you were in T-Bone Tom's yesterday!! We may have been in there at the same time as we got there a little after 5:30! I didn't even look around as we were headed to the table to look at the menus! :) It is a great place to eat, isn't it?
Be a sweetie, Shelia ;)

Beautiful tablescape Diane. The heart shaped plates set the stage for a very romantic Victorian look. The ruffles and the candle holders with the pretty prisms are perfect for this lovely table.

Alycia Nichols said...

Very Victorian, Diane! Queen Anne herself would have been very proud! Neat idea to add the lacy, ruffly doily as a part of the charger layer.

Your mind has already floated off to love and romance. I know you're going to have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Have a terrific weekend, Diane!

Ann @ Corner of Plaid and Paisley said...
