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.

~~~My Garden Tablescapes~~~

My inspiration for this Tablescape was looking
at some pictures of my garden last Spring.
I have a dark green tablecloth and my crocheted
one over it for some textured.
I made my napkins one more time because I could
not find ones with Magnolias. All six are lined
for a crisp look.
The focal point of my Tablescape is the centerpice,
an old watering can I used for my flower
arrangement. The flowers are Alstro mixed with
baby breath.
My white duck is for bread sticks.

I love using real flowers.
Come be my guests!!
My water goblets and wine glasses are from
Hidden Treasures.
I purchased my dinnerware from the Dollar store,
but the fruit plates are vintage over 60 years old.
I have this plate on the left side.
I love a candle light dinner it really sets the
mood for my guest ~~
I hope you all come back!!! Please take a
