Hi, my name is Lorna and I'm a dishaholic. Yes folks, it's Tablescape Thursday again and time to show our support for fellow tablescapers around blogland.
I've had a setback, friends. My habit with tablescaping has escaped the confines of my own home and I've taken it to a whole new level. No, not my front porch, or even my back porch, but about 10 miles from my own haven to my friend's lovely home!
Oh, for shame! Her husband greeted me at the door with raised eyebrows as I stood there with a box of the goods in hand! Am I actually pushing the habit to an unsuspecting friend?
You bet I am!
It was actually her 5oth birthday, and I wanted to do something out of the ordinary for her. So what to do? Give her a tablescape, of course, and it was a surprise to boot!
It didn't take much to set an attractive table. She already has such beautiful furnishings and accessories.
I used some of her Christmas ornaments, candles, and a tiered serving dish to accessorize. I even used her silverware that was a wedding gift over 20 years ago. I think this may have been the first time it's been out of the box!
She liked the brown and blue color scheme, so I bought a runner, napkins, plates, goblets, and a vase. I made the napkin rings from a spool of wired ribbon.
She was both surprised and delighted. And me? Well, I selfishly got my fix!
Thanks to Susan at BNOTP for hosting our weekly Meeting!
Till next time,
