Tablescaped Thursday

Okay this is my first tablescape experience. I think I may have overdone it a bit, but it was so much fun. Seems whenever I have guests over for family get together's and holidays that I spend so much energy and time on cooking that the table is usually very basic. So doing this for fun was a real treat. Join me over at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

My pumpkin Turreen in all her glory.

  9. Hello Marla,

    You should be proud of your first tablescape, it is fantastic! I cannot say the same about mine since I "cheated" so to speak... I love the scrabble tiles and the starfish you added. Very clever!

    Great job! Thank you for sharing!

  13. Hi Marla, What a nice way to showcase your special soup tureen! I like your fruit inspired dishes against the pumpkin/leaves runner and the plaid placemat. Is that wheat grass growing in that container? You like to spell with the scrabble letters too, I see.
    Good job with the tablescape.

  14. Its hard to believe you don't ALWAYS set the table so nicely for company when you show us a "first 'scape" like this one! Great ideas, like the scrabble letters! Love the soup tureen as the centerpiece. Napkin rings are gorgeous! Wonderful!

  16. Marla,

    You expressed my thoughts exactly about having parties and not having the chance to set a nice table. At least with larger parties. And with TT, we have a chance to practice!! lol!

    Love your soup tureen!! The purple running through it is gorgeous. I like how you have it elevated on the stand. Your dishes are lovely too!!

    I hope you have a great weekend!! :-)

    xoxo
