My First Tablescape Thursday



Here we are at my FIRST Tablescape Thursday...guess it's okay for my FIRST one! I love the simple look of BLACK and WHITE so this is what I wanted for my FIRST tablescape. I used a mixture of items...everything from family antiques to dollar store bargains! Take a look around and I promise my next one will be much better...thanks sooooo much for looking!












Please join Susan and all the other ladies over at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH for a GOOD time!

Very pretty! Love those beans with candles in the big glass containers. And I like your golden colored walls. I never set a table. We usually just eat together in the tv room. Right now my dining table is a big mess from craft stuff. Have a great weekend. :) Tammy

I'm with you on the black and white tablescape... I like to add a little green to mine though... love your beach theme... Alabama Gulf Coast huh? My family spent a year living in Theodore AL when I was in HS (about 100 years ago)... loved Dolphin Island when we were there... the same year hurricane Camille came through!

thanks for following French Lique... I'm doing the same here... see ya soon! Dixie

Pearl Maple said...

Well done to take a classic and personalise it with your own creative twist.

Shelia said...

Hey Linda, thanks so much for coming to see me. Your tablescape is lovely. So well put together. I also love black and white, especially black. In fact, they say (whoever they are) that there should a little black in every room in your home. There is in mine. And I love your idea of using the navy beans. They are also very tasty cooked with ham and cornbread! lol, Shelia

alice said...

Linda, I think you did good! I love the beans holding the candles. I also like b & w.
smiles, alice

Hi Linda, Thanks so much for visiting and joining my blog, Rustique Gallery. I love your tablescape and the posting about your porch swing. I dream of swinging in the breezes too. It's 15 degrees out today and clouding up for another snowstorm, so I'll keep plugging on my Studio Redo. Enjoy the weekend! Sherry

Proper Prim said...

Thanks so much for stopping by Linda and for your kind comment... Oh I only wish I was where you are... I looked through several of your posts but I had to stop I couldn't see past the tears... we are in the deep freeze right now and I am so not a winter girl...

Your home is gorgeous and I love your tablescape, very nice job...

Hugs,
Deb

Very pretty! I love the vase filler you used.

Rettabug said...

What a great debut for TT, Linda! Beautifully done & very creative, too.

Are your stemware glasses sitting in metal rimmed coasters? If so, I could just kick myself for giving away some of those when we moved. I hadn't used them in years & now I sure wish I had them back. :( They look wonderful on your table!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
