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.

Valentines day-is-coming

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was the love of
Red and White for this Valentine's Day.
I also had to Re Post this for my new Followers.~

I did add some Baby Breath on my napkins just for fun.

My centerpiece arrangement is mix! red and white Carnations
and Baby Breath.

I have a dark red tablecloth and my crocheted one on 
top for some Textured,

I love a candle light dinner!
with a glass of wine so Romantic..

I hope you are having a wonderful day.

You know I love to mix my dishes !!

I did use my Vintage Stemware for this Tablescape.



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.

I love the Valentine tablescape you
have created, Dianne...the red and white combo really pops up and is pure "eye-candy"!! I like the baby's breath touch on the napkins, the tall
candle holders, and the carnations for the flower arrangement...great idea instead of roses!!
Your lace tablecloth is beauiful and it shows up so pretty over the red one! This is just a romantic table for
sure!!
I have gotten my Valentine table decorated, too...seeing yours makes me realize what an artist YOU are!!
Thanks for sharing this with us. I always love every tablescape you do!!

Anita Cedar Hill Ranch said...

You did it again!! Love the reds for Valentine's Day and the soft feminine touches, and the flowers. I'm pretty excited about Cowgirl Up and can't wait to see you there. The party will go live by 9 pm tonight!!

Coopy said...

I'm so behind on post... argh. You had me at carnations.... red ones. :) Love them. I wish I could tell you I had the eye for tablescapes but I do not. The simpler, the better in my case. Of course, I've been known to pull out a great pillow or quilt... but not a table setting. I truly believe it's a skill you have or don't. I'm a don't. LOL. You on the other hand not only do it beautifully but with the slightest of tweeks, you keep it fresh all the time.

Your kitchen is GORGEOUS!!!!

Love the pink carnations as well!
hugs and love
