TABLESCAPE THURSDAY - MY FIRST!

Welcome to my first Tablescape Thursday! I want to thank the very talented Susan, Between Naps on The Porch, for hosting!

This is my 2nd blog party (I did pink sunday). If you are a new blogger, just click on the link at the end of this post and Susan has a list of all the participants where you can click a name and see their amazing tablescapes!

Be sure to see them all if you can! I am looking forward to seeing all the lovely tablescape that everyone made especially for today!

Now let me just say, I was not as organized as I thought I'd be. My original tablescape was not working out as I had envisioned....So on to plan B! lol

Without further ado, I present .....

"Finishing Touches"


Our meal is ready, the wine is chilling, my guest is due momentarily. I just need to put the finishing touches on my table.

A quick check from all sides...


I'd better finish up!...oops don't want to sit on that!

What a show stopper for your inaugural tablescape. There was a lot of time and thought put in on your creation - it shows. I've had a blog for about 5 months and it's all so amazing still.
