You can view more photos of this table here!

Congratulations Susan on Celebrating your 100Th Tablescape Thursday! Each week Susan from Between Naps on the Porch host's Tablescape Thursday giving anyone interested in joining in a chance to show case their own uniquely designed tablescapes. I have had so much pleasure participating and meeting so many new friends each week and I owe that to our gracious host; Susan. She is truly one of the sweetest people I have met in blog land and I'm learning so much from her each week, I still have a ways to go but I'm enjoying my journey to becoming a good tablescaper. I really look at setting a table for dinner in a different way since finding Susan. I'm so thankful for that, as is my family, who has enjoyed sitting at quite a few lovely tablescapes I have designed for them. Please stop by and visit Susan and congratulate her! Thanks again Susan, it's truly an honor to share a little something with you when I'm able to participate!

Here are some of my favorite tablescapes I have designed over the last few months, I hope you enjoy them!

A Summer's Night...

There is nothing like a nice slice of juicy watermelon for desert on a hot summer night.

What do you enjoy during the summer months, do you have a favorite place to visit, a tradition you'd like to share or a memory of yesteryear's?

I hope you are enjoying your summer! I'm joining Susan over at It's A Very Cherry World for REDNESDAY!

Breakfast In Bed...

A beautiful start to a new day...
Sometimes I think we need to be reminded to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures of the morning. Why not stay in bed and enjoy a nice cup of hot tea, some juice, a breakfast smoothie and read the morning news, sounds wonderful to me!
A no fuss way to start an ordinary day! I hope you have a great week and take a few minutes to enjoy your morning!

I'm joing Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Table
Top Tuesday
, please visit Marty and all her lovely participants and see what they are sharing this week!

Flower Power...

I found this set of cute glazed flower pots that are for baking at Goodwill a few months ago.

I thought they were the cutest little pots and would could be better than filling them with yummy carrot cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting?

Come sit, and visit for awhile...

The pretty flowerpot with birds is perfect for a garden centerpiece for my table. I did this same arrangement a while back and loved it so much I decided to do it again! I picked some purple iris, added a few hosta leaves, a yellow day lilly and added them to the flower pot. I love designing floral arrangements and I love how this turned out and I think the garden tools add a bit of whimsy to the table.

If you look closely you can see the garden tools peeking out of the hosta...

I love all the different elements of this table, the blue in the tablecloth with the green placemats and yellow dishes look so pretty together...

The sun is just beginning to set...

The bird statues add a bit of rustic charm. I like how they look like they are very old and covered in moss...

The ivy topiary in the rusty flower pot adds another rustic element to this table...

Cute Frog and Flower Salt and Pepper Shakers...
