Tablescape Thursday!

Welcome to another Tablescape fun filled post! Since it is summer and we are trying to lighten things up, I decided to go a little with the Shabby summer style.
I covered all my chairs with lighter fabric slipcovers...I will show you how I made them tomorrow...and it was easy.

A sweet little flickering candle in pink...



Old silver has a place near the sugar and creamer....

and I will never tire of making roses out of napkins...thank you Martha Stewart for this idea.


Be sure to notice the curtains have changed too! I replaced rooster curtains in my dining room for lighter and airier...I will use the darker curtains in the fall.

I brought in an outdoor candle holder from my patio and placed a small pink candle inside, next to the candle holder are glasses filled with ivy cuttings that I put inside a Shabby chic style planter from outdoors too.




I'm so glad you came by, can't wait to see the rest of the Tablescapes @http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.....so many ideas.....when is dinner?
Blessings,
Debbie

Your tablescape is lovely. I see the old toy stove. I had one just like it as a child...and the verse is perfect.

Debbie,

I love your tablescape. It looks so Laura Ashley or Ralph Laurenish. I also love the tablecloth and the pink candle and holder.

Hi Debbie! Love your tablescape! I will have to try these napkin roses sometime.. and I love that you change your curtains by season. I do too, and I have an Aunt who thinks I go one step too far, for doing it. With ALL I do, she thinks my son will NEVER leave the house! (0; Got my first flag, the pink one done this morning!... So please do stop by on Pink Saturday to see it! I'm going to start a blue one next. If you want a sneak peek, let me know! ~tina

Hi Deb, your shabby chic tablescape looks so fresh and lovely. I can't wait to see how you made the pretty slipcovers.

I too am on the college countdown. My baby is leaving for college in a few weeks as well. I will miss him very much and am anxious to see the man he will become.
