Tablescape Tuesday!

Tablescape Tuesday!

My sweet new blogging friend Susan of Between Naps on the Porch is hosting Tablescape Tuesday for us, so hop on over to her blog to see more participants. Last week had some yummy ideas & if you crave pretty china like I do, then this will be right up your alley!

I always have fun posting pics of some of my favorite antique mirrors ~ this one has deep diamond bevels that just catch the light & **SPARKLE**!

This is such a pretty set of china ~ Spode Pink Tower. I love using this, especially at Easter. It looks so pretty with a pink damask tablecloth, & the china is actually slightly lighter than my pics show it to be.

The stemware is Moonspun by Lenox. It has platinum bands & the most delicate etchings. Next time I use it I'll try to get a better closeup.

Our silver is by Community. I made the little napkin ring holders from bunny button covers!
I was a little late getting my post up today & want to hurry & visit the other participants as the wind is really picking up here & we are due some storms blowing in from Louisiana in a few hours. I'll have to shut my computer down as I don't want it to get "fried"!

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for your comments on our family room, I so want to change things in there now. When we moved in, nine years ago, re-decorating 13 rooms was overwhelming and there are so many things I wish I had done different. Also my husband doesn't see the need for some changes and I need his co-operation to get things done. Not all men understand these things.

I love your table setting, nice job. With the holiday yesterday, I forgot all about a new one for today, I feel bad now. I'll have to make myself a note for next weeks.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Stay safe, hope your not affected by the storms.

Glad you were able to post. The weather has been horrendous.
Your napkins rings are wonderful, what a novel idea. Love the color of the china.

Oh, Stephanie, your table setting is devine! The china is so beautiful. I have one of your plates and it's on the wall in my dining room among other Spode plates. I just love these. Your crystal glasses are just lovely!! You're also very creative to have made those sweet little napkin holders. Thanks for coming to see me!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What beautiful china, you can never go wrong with Spode. It is presented just beautifully. The little bunny napkin rings are adorable! I may have to copy that idea! ~ Robyn

Thanks for stopping by our blog! I absolutely love your mirror. I have 2 similar ones tucked away in the basement that I don't have a place to hang but I know I love them and will use them one day!

What a gorgeous table! That's one of my fave china patterns. I have Blue Willow, which is similar in style, for my everyday china.

Check out my blog & the post about purple becuase I'm having a giveaway!

Stephanie...I LOVE your tablescape! You and I have something in common because I have Spode Tower, too...that is sooo cool...haven't met anyone else on RMS or in the blog world that had Tower china. I know you love it; it's such a great pattern! Thanks for the great book suggestion by the way...I'm going to look for that one! Susan
