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.

Two Tablescapes For Thanksgiving.

My inspiration for my two Tablescapes was having family and friends
over for Thanksgiving Day, so I did need more room to sit down to eat.

I did this centerpiece just for this Thanksgiving dinner.

I have five layers of china on the gold charger.
The pattern is called Miami by Theodore Haviland. This was my 
Mother-in-law's china, she had great taste.

Dessert plate.

Salad plate.

Dinner plate.

I made my napkins for Thanksgiving one year ago.

I did add some wild turkey feathers to my centerpiece.

I hope you all are having a great day.

This is my other Tablescape for Thanksgiving Day.
Just four more days before the Turkey goes in the oven.

I would like to thank you all so much for all your
sweet comments this past year! I see you all as part of my family.
This is the coffee and wine Buffet..

Since my family is coming over to join me on Thanksgiving Day, I'm not doing to much cooking. 
I am covering the basics such as the turkey, dressing, and gravy, My guests are bringing the 
open dishes of assorted foods to complete our meal.

From my family to your family, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


I hope you all come Back!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!

~~~Fields Of Poppies.

My Inspiration for this tablescape was having
some friends over for Veterans Day dinner.
A special thank you to all of the Veterans today and all of those
that are presently serving in the Military and their families.
                              Bless you all!


                                          

I purchased my poppy salad dishes and soup bowls
some time ago from Ross, for $12.00 for both sets of four.
My centerpiece ~~ I put together two years ago with
silk Poppy flowers. Time to light the candles.
 
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.

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 love candle light with dinner .

Will its time to eat right. First for the soup French onion with a Greek salad.
Then for the dinner Beef stroganoff with rice. Dessert lemon mousse so Yummy.

I hope you all come Back!! Please take a moment to comment.
Thank you so much!

~~~ David Maass Collection.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape!!
 was my Collection of David Maass dishes.
He is an artist for the Texas duck stamp prints.
My collection is from 1988. If you like them go to ebay for more information.
Top left is called Misty Morning ~~ Top right is called In To Feed
left bottom Migrants ~~ right bottom Last Of The Season.
I did add my Churchill China~Blue Willow plates to them. I made my napkins, do you remember them?
This is the soup bowl. I love this with the green charger
and the gold ruffled round placemats.
This is just one of my David Maass display plates.
The plate is for show and not for food.
Dinner plate.
Lets have a glass of wine and light the candles.

Above is one more Christmas ornament for
my tree this year.

 

I put this centerpiece together for just this tablescape.

I hope you are all having a great day.
I prepared a lovely dinner for my family last night.
We started with cream of mushroom soup, followed with a mix salad with tomatoes and red onions topped of with a blue cheese dressing.
The main course was a dinner of creamed chicken and biscuits.
This was so easy to put together!
 Dessert was chocolate cream pie and was it so yummy..
I hope you all come Back !!! Please take a moment to comment.
Thank you so much!
