Welcome to the 404th Tablescape Thursday.
Happy springtime to you!
We’re out on the porch for this week’s Tablescape Thursday.
You’ve been seeing these butterfly napkin rings a lot lately. They seem to be my favorite choice for the tablescapes I’ve been creating this spring. I must be in a “green” mood right now. Maybe it’s from all the gardening I’ve been doing. lol
I pulled out my favorite summer dinnerware for this week’s table. It’s Ma Maison by Tabletops Unlimited, designed by Dario Farrucci.
Love the cute house and gardens depicted on this pattern found it in HomeGoods many years ago. I wish it was still being made, they definitely need to bring it back.
Just realized I didn’t take a picture of the dinner plate. Here’s a view of it from a previous spring tablescape.
So remember the little tutorial I shared recently about how to find the center of a ceramic or clay saucer? (You’ll find it here: How to Find the Center of a Ceramic or Clay Saucer.)
That tutorial was used to make this tiered planter/plant stand.
We had a big storm yesterday and the Portulaca I had planted into the pots, decided to take a nap during the storm. Portulaca likes to close up when it begins to get dark out, so the flowers aren’t quite as open as they were prior to the storm.
The flowers had also been recently watered. I just noticed the color of the clay pots is kind of uneven due to the water seeping into the clay. Oh well, you know how it is working with live talent! They can be so temperamental and unpredictable at times! 😉
I’ll create a detailed tutorial sharing the steps to make this tiered planter. It was super easy! It was so easy, I’m thinking of making another one.
While I was making it, I was thinking about how the design could be changed up a bit, maybe adding another saucer to the mix and placing them closer together. Then it could be used as a cute server for outdoor parties, maybe with cupcakes or something similar displayed. There are so many fun ways to use a tiered piece!
Looking forward to all the beautiful tables linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party 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 and scammers from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
