Tablescape Thursday

Good evening everyone, welcome to my little gathering. This is my very first time to join Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Napkin rings are such a nice accent to a table setting. It is amazing how many shapes, sizes, colors, and styles they come in. I got these rose napkin rings at Bed, Bath & Beyond several years ago. Yes, I did use my 20% coupon on them.


I adore these plates!!! I got them a couple of weeks ago at the Home Goods store, and they were only $3.99 each. Unfortunately they only had four of them. I would love to have two more for a complete set. What a wonderful excuse to go back in a month or so!

I got this centerpiece for free!! Well, it was free, but not really. One of our local stores has a customer rewards program, and I used my accumulated points to get it. I got the sprays at Christmas time, and just added them to the candle holder.

Can you believe how pretty this Hibiscus is?? I think every table needs fresh flowers, so I went out to my front yard and clipped a few flowers. I think the bird on the right hand side thinks that the Hibiscus has fragrance, but unfortunately they do not!


Every table needs a good bottle of wine on it!!



I hope you enjoyed the evening. Please stop by Susan's fabulous home to link up with the other participants.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Nicole~

Hi Nicole,
This is my first visit to your blog. You did a beautiful Tablescape. I think I might have those same dishes only in yellow. Love that bird, he needs to fly over to my house! Cathy~

Hi Nicole, ~WOW!~

This is all just so beautiful!
LOVE the Red rose napkin holders. They look so classic and elegant.
I'll bet they can be used for many different occasions.
Your new plates are beautiful too.

You're right. We do have so many of the same items in our homes! Your centerpiece candle holder matches the set I have on our mantle. I got them at a Parisian about three years ago. How funny! I just love the scroll legs they have.

Your cats and doggies are all sooo pretty.
Thanks for visiting my table tonight and my big Orange man too. LOL!

~Wonderful TT post my friend.

What a beautiful tablescape! I have seen those plates before (in TJ Maxx I think) and thought they were so pretty. I also love those napkin rings.

Martha said...

A beautiful table. The bad thing about Home Goods/Maxx/Marshall's is that they only seem to get 4 plates at every store. If you want a set you have to visit a lot of them. . . I remember one summer visiting what seemed like 100 stores . . . but I did get all of my dishes!
