Welcome to the 156th Tablescape Thursday!
Tomorrow, August 18th, Between Naps on the Porch turns 3 years old. The last three years have flown by so very quickly. Thank you for visiting and being here every day. I appreciate so much that you share your time with me!
Let’s have dinner on the deck tonight. It feels so nice out.
I’ll pour the wine…you just sit and enjoy.
So romantic, dining surrounded by flowers.
I decided to do something a little unexpected in the table setting. I brought a lamp out onto the deck. Instead of candlelight, we’ll be dining by lamplight. It’s times like this that I’m really glad I had all those extra outlets installed on the porch and decks when they were added.
For this table setting, I created a Butterfly Napkin Fold.
You’ll find the tutorial for this Butterfly napkin Fold here: Butterfly Napkin Fold Tutorial.
An overhead view…
Getting darker now. China used in this tablescape is Mikasa, Modern Butterfly.
The “fancy tablecloth” is a coverlet my sister bought for her bed but found something she liked better. I used it in a fireside table setting here: Romantic Fireside Table Setting
If you love this butterfly china, you’ll find another table setting using the same china here: Romantic Table Setting on the Porch. For additional table settings, click on the category “Tablescapes” at the top of this blog.
