Tablescape Thursday



After many, many months of watching with wide-eyed wonder the amazing tablescapes over at Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch, I decided to try my hand at one myself. I'm just a beginner, but I figured what better time to join than on Susan's 100th Tablescape Thursday!

Welcome to my Italian Feast...



Mangia, mangia!





My solid red plates, as well as the tomato & pepper plates, are from Pier 1, purchased 10+ years ago. The placemats were a gift from my husband's dear aunt.
The glasses are from Target. The red flatware was an engagement gift from my godparents some 18 years ago. My centerpiece items are pieces I've collected over the years from who knows where. So there you have it...Buon appetito!

Hey, check out all the amazing tablescapes at Susan's blog here. I know you won't be disappointed!

  3. This is just beautiful. We have a big pig too and my husband's favorite saying about food is, "You know what I always like to say....Fat pigs like to eat." You have set a lovely table. Thanks for sharing it.
