Tablescape Thursday-woohoo

Today is Tablescape Thursday put on by Susan @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
I too love to nap so I think Susan and I would get along very well! This is my hubby's outdoor room that we entertain in. It is Southwestern decor. We recently had a small gathering. It is a bright room, not completely done yet. But I have wall papered with Southwester paper,

painted the furniture to match...
I also made this wreath (we planted so much corn, it was coming out our ears...ears of corn...hahahahhal) anyhoo...I added Indian corn to an already made wreath...very heavy...


These plates are from the Awhanee Tribe....we got these dishes for our 100th wedding anniversary(ok only 28) and my parents add to them at Christmas. We got them in Yosemite National Park...one of our favorite places to go!
I can't believe I didn't get a photo of the whole table!!!! What kind of blogger am I?
Thanks for the visit!
Debbie

What fun southwestern touches in your room. How fun that you have that special tableware and people add to it for you. I think it's time to choose some tableware that my kids can add to each year and then I won't have to come up with a Christmas or birthday list :0)
