My First Tablescape Thursday

Hi! So this is my first Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on th Porch. I am super html illiterate, so I'm going to try really hard to link to her blog, we'll see how this all works out!

Today I am posting pictures of a regular everyday tablesetting at our house. Nothing super special, just homey and nice, because having a tablecloth and cloth napkins just makes dinner feel more special! :) This is dinner for two, just me and you! Have a seat!

I love casual weeknight suppers. I've always called the evening meal supper. Growing up dinner was at lunch time, the big meal. Supper was leftovers from dinner.

These are my everyday dishes. They are Todd English from HSN. I love having the different colors.

The napkins are actually vintage kitchen towels. My Granny used them up until the day she gave them to me and most of them are still going strong.

The chargers are cute wicker rounds I found at Walmart for $3.50 each! I love the casual feel they add to the table!
That's just my everyday drinking glasses and silverware. The glasses I got at Sam's Club, but the flatware I've had forever and couldn't begin to tell you where I got it!
The cute little crystal tealight holders I got from Steinmart on clearance! I love me some steinmart!!

I think we all know all about these guys!

These little cuties were my Granny's and she had them for as long as I can remember, I don't know anything about them, except that they are so sweet!

There it is! Bon Appetite!! :)


  1. Terrific 'scape for your first visit to TT! Welcome! I love your dishes and they go so well with the striped tablecloth. Everyday meals are made all the more special by the little touches! Thanks for sharing!


  2. It looks beautiful and welcoming! My mom always called lunch "dinner" and still does. I do it sometimes and the boys will always say, "It's not nighttime yet Mom." I love the beautiful colors. They look just right for the fall season. I can picture a big helping of vegetable soup or chili in those bowls. Yum! I love that you were able to add your grandmothers napkins and beautiful birds. Great job!
    Thanks for sharing, and thank you for the amazing comment you left me about what I am going through with my mom. It IS too much for me to bear. But with Christ,I can do all things.
    You are a precious sister in Christ.
