Tablescaping Today!

Thanks for stopping by. Today is a fun day! I love these tablescape days....have you visited the other gals? Wow! Be sure to visit Susan @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
I will show how to make these strawberries on Friday....so easy and fun...a little addicting.

these are fake strawberries....or faux....excuse me...here on the farm we say fake! I had to have them. Like Susan said @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ when she shops she keeps an eye out for things to put on her table for Tablescapes! She has started blog history with this tablescaping thing!

The strawberry fabric is from the fabric store....just one yard, hemmed. I made yellow napkins to match.

The red dishes are just for looks. They are old wooden plates from the thrift store that I spray painted! They come in handy.
Thanks so much for the visit. Be sure to come back by for the strawberry fun!

Good morning Debbie! I love your table! Those fabric strawberries are adorable! You're going to start a new craft bonanza! Everyone's been making tassels now they're going to be making strawberries! I also peeked down at your patriotic cookies! How clever is that but I can tell you that candy wouldn't have lasted around my house from Christmas to now! God Bless! Lauralu :)

Oh, where did you get your red flatware in the container? Looked vintage to me, but just love the handles! And the strawberries, faux fruit from fabric and so cute! (That was a mouthful and tongue-twister!) Your table is beautiful!

I came back by to mention that I am hosting a Christmas in July Tablescape Party at my Playing Dishes blog. There will be one held each Saturday this month. Please come and participate or at least visit. A holiday tablecloth will be given away on the last Saturday, July 25. Info on signups is available by clicking my sidebar memes available on both my blogs.

I am also having a weekly Christmas giveaway at my Christmas Memories in My Heart blog. Weekly entries are closed out a midnight on Wednesday for this.

Hopefully some of you tablescape regulars will pull together a tablescape for CIJ or pull out some photos from last year to post.

Happy CIJ!
