Welcome to the 99th Tablescape Thursday!
Celebration Time: 100 Weeks of Great Tablescapes!
Hold onto your dishes…it’s time for a celebration! Next Thursday will mark the occasion of our 100th Tablescape Thursday! Wow…hard to believe we’ve been tablescaping 100 weeks!
I’ve been thinking and thinking about how we might celebrate. I had a lot of ideas, but I just couldn’t decide. So, I decided to ask BNOTP Facebook Fans for their suggestions…and they had some really awesome ideas!
Here’s the plan: For our 100th Tablescape Thursday…you may post whatever kind of tablescape you like…no rules. But, if you would like to play along, we thought it might be great fun to post a tablescape created in an outdoor sitting…like on a porch, deck, patio or even, out on the lawn. OR, to celebrate Tablescape Thursday turning 100 weeks old…how about posting a “party” themed tablescape…the more glitz and sparkle, the better!
Remember, it doesn’t have to be outdoors or “party” themed…these are just suggestions to celebrate our big day. So come join in…it’s gonna be a blast!
For this week’s Tablescape Thursday, I’m thrilled to be sharing two fabulous, patriotic tablescapes by my talented friend, Bonnie. Bonnie created these amazing table settings recently when she had friends visiting in her home for the 4th of July weekend.
I love how you can enjoy the outdoor decorations from inside. That was one of the best discoveries this past Christmas when I decorated all around my front door. I could see much of it from inside my home, so I was able to enjoy it every single time I passed by the front door.
