A Garden Party with the Birds and the Bees

Welcome to the 450th Tablescape Thursday! I was in the mood for a springtime table this week. It all started when I shared this bee flatware that's currently on sale in my last post. I hadn't used it in a table setting in a while and I missed it!   We're off to a garden party for this week's Tablescape Thursday!   I kept the centerpiece simple--just a vase of beautiful … [Read more...]

An Outdoor Space Designed for Dining and Relaxing by the Fire

Welcome to the 375th Metamorphosis Monday! Thanks so much for all your well wishes on Friday. Sunday was the big turning point.

Thanks again for your kind words on Friday, they really helped! For this week's Met Monday, I … [Read more...]

A Beautiful Outdoor Oasis For Entertaining

Cold, what cold? In my mind it's summertime. We're out on the deck, the sun is shining and the hamburgers and hotdogs sizzling on the grill smell heavenly. Did you hear that? It's the doorbell, barely heard over the beautiful music emanating across the porch and decks on this gorgeous summer day. Friends are arriving and the fun is just beginning. Time for partying and playing outside again. Okay, … [Read more...]

Beach Themed Table Setting

Welcome to the 22nd Tablescape Thursday! I've been under the weather for about 2 weeks with a bad cold that seems to be getting worse instead of better, especially today. So, hope you won't mind, but for this week I thought I'd re-post the first tablescape I ever created for Tablescape Tuesday. It's a Beach themed tablescape and honestly, I think we could all use a little "escape" from the cold right … [Read more...]

A Magnolia & Lemon Centerpiece

Welcome to the 11th Tablescape Tuesday! On one of my trips to A Classy Flea this past summer, I came across this happy daisy china.  It was love at first sight! I used place mats and matching napkins I already had. The faux bamboo flatware is from Big Lots...very inexpensive but I love it. This is an American made dishware and it dates back to the 1960s. It was made by Metlox Potteries out … [Read more...]
