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.

Christmas Past Tablescape.


Hi ladies, this is my Christmas Tablescape of  2010.
I hope you remember this one.
The only reason for this repost is because of my
new follower on my blog now.
For my centerpiece I use my vintage candle holders
from the 40th's.

I had three layers of my Haviland china with my vintage
stemware from France on a red charger.

I purchased the snowman glasses are from the Dollar Store 
some year ago.

I did add a red Christmas ball in my vintage stemware just for fun.



I'm hoping you all are having a lot of fun putting your
 Christmas Tablescapes together.

This tablescape was just for my family ~~

I have some ideas for this years Christmas tablescape.  

I love the candle light for Christmas Eve dinner.

You can see my Christmas tree in the other room all lit up.

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, Beautiful Christmas tablescape from last year. I prefer traditional colors for decorating and I plan to do a red Christmas Eve table. Beautiful centerpiece with the flowers and candles. I love the china pattern and the snowman goblets are charming. Great white ceramic tree on the sideboard. I missed this one, glad you brought it back. Have a great week.
