Welcome to the 304th Tablescape Thursday!
I’ve had sooo much fun reading all of your answers to the style questions yesterday. I have a whole list of books I want to check out now and for some reason I am seriously craving chocolate! I can’t imagine why! I also want to visit every single place you named in your answers for question #10. If you didn’t get a chance to read the comments on yesterdays Style post, you will definitely want to check those out!
Today is going to be pretty bonkers around here. I’ve been on the waiting list of a local painting company for over a month! They have finally reached me and are coming tomorrow (which will be today by the time you’re reading this) to get started on pressure washing the house, decks and porches and making some repairs to the chimney where a very naughty woodpecker decided to do his best imitation of Swiss cheese.
Once all that’s done, they will commence with painting the exterior part of the porch and the white parts of the deck. After all of that’s done, I’ll be staining the floor of the two decks. Keep your fingers crossed the weather is kind to me this week and next week, too. I’ll take some pics to share so you can see the progress being made.
I wish I could get excited about this but I’d much rather be spending money on a much-needed bathroom renovation than pressure washing and painting. I know you understand! Maintenance…an evil necessity!
I have two very different table settings to share this week for Tablescape Thursday. As a bonus, I’m taking you on a little screened-porch tour, too!
Remember the beautiful shade garden we toured in this post: A Beautiful, Enchanting Spring Garden ? I’m sure you remember this beautiful storybook home.
This is the back of that home and just look at that huge screened-in porch!
When it came time for us to go from one side of the garden to the other, the guides instructed us to do it via the screened-in porch due to the slope of the lawn. That was fine by us! You know we were dying to see inside the porch, too!
I snapped a quick photo as we entered and as you can see, it’s a wonderfully large porch. There’s a seating area at this end, a swing in the middle and a hammock way down at the other end. There’s also a table, partially hidden by the swing. Let’s go check it out!
A beautiful spring tablescape was ready here on the porch table.
Love the tablecloth!
As we turned away from the table here on the porch…
This was the view on the other side. What a great place for a nap!
A Moss Table In The Garden
In the garden outside, we came across another wonderful table.
How do you like the fuzzy tablecloth?
Is this not magical? The whole garden tour for this home was completely enchanting with an adorable potting shed, a potting bench, mosaic stepping-stones, fairy gardens, bottle trees and now this…a wonderful moss-covered table!
The pot on this moss table looks like it’s made from bark, doesn’t it? I love all those special details, they just make it over-the-top wonderful! If you would like to see the rest of this lovely garden, you’ll find the tour here: A Beautiful, Enchanting Spring Garden
Hope you enjoyed these two special tables! Looking forward to all the beautiful tablescapes posted for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party in order to link up and participate. That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
If you would like to use the Tablescape Thursday logo button in your post, just copy and paste it to your computer and upload it to your post as you would any photo.
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
