This and That - Tablescape Thursday

I'm still trying to unwind from my trip to Paris and the French Riviera, so Tablescape Thursday almost sneaked up on me this week. It's hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Be sure to visit her, where you'll find links to everyone who's showing off their creative tables.

This week I'm showing you some of my favorite tables that other talented ladies have created over the years for our church tablescape event.

I know a lot of you have blue and white china, so I wanted to show you this table that combined the blue and white with a splash of lime green.


I really like the way the bright green chargers show off the classic blue and white dishes.


I thought this was a perfect setting for a fall buffet.

The napkins are tied with a fragrant sprig of rosemary.

I think this table is so elegant. I would love to have that china with the colorful birds on it.

This combination of vintage linens, enamelware, galvanized tin and crockery is perfect for a 4th of July picnic.

Susan, do you think that's Jean-Claude's brother?

Kathy, I just want to know - before someone joins your church, do they have to try out with a tablescape? You have got some real tablescaping talent at that church! laurie

If these are the tablescapes for the church, then the food must be amazing!

Seriously, I loved that first table-the lime green always makes the blue pop and this was so pretty! I also loved the ribbon around the chair covers. Beautiful tables-thanks for sharing. I can't wait to see more from these ladies!
