Celebrating Tablescapes!

Pin It Now!

Susan at Naps on the Porch is celebrating 52 weeks of her Tablescape Thursdays (which were originally held on Tuesdays). I thought it would be fun to pull some old photos of my tables off my computer and reminisce a little! Most of mine are just centerpieces because I don't set a pretty table very often for just Lauren and I but I do try to update my centerpiece regularly.









Breakfast in bed...it's sort of a tablescape, isn't it?

I hope you didn't mind looking at these old pictures again! If you would like to see even more tablescapes, head over to Susan's Blog ~ Between Naps on the Porch and see who else is joining in!

It was so nice to view all of your lovely tablescapes at once.

All so pretty. That 5th photo is dreamy... like some pretty woman wafted thru the room & dropped her slip on the table.

LillyB said...

Stunning!! You have the perfect touch!

Hi Cindy,
Well they are all great, like the Fall one I had not seen before but I think the Christmas one is my fav.
Lovely, you have talent my dear!

Hello Cindy,

All your tablescapes are absolutely beautiful. I had not seen all of them yet and am glad that you took a trip down memory lane and posted them this way. I recently came across glass turkeys like yours and after debating with myself for a while, I passed them up. Now, after seeing yours in that setting I am kicking myself for not getting them!

I love all of your tablescape vignettes. They are truly magazine-worthy!

Cindy Logan said...

Beautiful!!! Especially that very elegant tablecloth!!! I love "I'm Julia" said about it, I agree. I have decided that I definately need another silver tray. The one that I have is much smaller and I have it beside my stove with the salt, pepper, sugar bowl, etc on it. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Ana~A Petite Cottage said...

How simply beautiful, all of them. Hey Cindy are those real pumpkins as candle holders in your fall tablescape? They look like they might have some glitter too, I can't really tell. None the less they are so cute...I love them. Have a wonderful day.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

So pretty! I really like the Christmas one and the first one with the nest and eggs. Love how the crystal and glassware looks in the light.

Kathleen Grace said...

These are so beautiful! I especially loved the white Christmas tablescape. It almost makes me look forward to winter...almost:>)

Mary said...

Each table scene is beautiful in itself...different looks for different seasons...and the lace tablecloth is most pretty! I like your candlesticks and bobeches...I have the same ones, and use them all the time. Lovely pictures, as always!

Mary

Cindy said...

Your tablescapes are all beautiful! You have great talent, girl. I think your Christmas table is my favorite! But it is hard to decide, they are all so lovely! Hugs, Cindy S

RobinfromCA said...

Love them all. I need to remember I could just do centerpieces. Yours are so lovely.

Robin

Jeannine said...

Do you realize how often those candle holders dripping with crystals show up in your tablescape? Are they Partylite? They are gorgeous and seem to go with everything. I do enjoy the centerpieces you've shown. Thanks for re running older pics.

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Cindy I loved seeing all the different tablescapes together in one blog entry. The use of the gorgeous silver tray used in so many of them makes me want to rush out and find one!

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Hi Cindy, What gorgeous centerpieces and I saw some beautiful tablescapes, too. :-) My heart always melts when I see the beautiful tiered piece that I believe you said you inherited from your Mom. That has to be most beautiful tiered server I've ever laid eyes on. Whenever I'm out, I keep my eyes peeled hoping that I'll find one very similar.
:-) I love how you change out what's displayed...it's gorgeous for summer filled with shells and just as beautiful at Christmas time filled with lovely ornaments and pearls. Thanks for a wonderful TT this week...and thanks for being there for the very first one, too. :-) Hugs! Susan

Michelle@Sweet Something said...

Amei seu blog e já sou sua seguidora viu! Você é uma graça e nos dá muitas inspirações.

Beijocas.

Eileen said...

They are all so beautiful it's hard to pick a favorite!
If I had to choose though, it would be a toss-up between the Breakfast in Bed (LOVED those dishes!), and the one with the sheer tablecloth (I think it was the second picture), it reminded me of a wedding, it reminded me of a bride actually, and everyone loves a bride!
Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! Every single one, beautiful!
All the best,
Eileen

Lana of Honeysuckle Lane said...

Dear Cindy ~ each photo I scrolled to was as beautiful as the one before it! Everything is lovely!

Shelia said...

I enjoyed your beautiful table, Cindy.
Be a sweetie,

Chatelaine said...

Simply beautiful tablescapes. You certainly have the knack for making it all look fabulous.

I especially enjoyed the Autumn tablescape and the teapot with the flowers.

Have a great weekend.

Sharlotte said...

Oh my, I love each and everyone of these tables! I also loved how you used your pieces so differently and each use seems perfect! The colors are so calm and relaxing. The candles and seashells are gorgeous! The autumn setting is very creative!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Just as beautiful the second time around!

Lynn said...

Cindy, I never tire of seeing the beauty you create in your home. I could look at these pictures over and over. I believe the beautiful lace tablecloth was from your mom. It is stunning. Thank you for sharing. I did not have time to post yesterday but the lemon tarts looked so good! I had just put lemon curd in a new cut glass bowl to put on blueberry muffins which we were going to eat have for dinner right before I read your post. I could just taste those tarts. You work associates are so lucky. Have a blessed day.

Dear Miss Cindy,

Thanks for sharing such beauty. Again, I really enjoy your photos. Thanks for the table settings... "scapes". They're all "scapes" to me. I'm sitting here watching "The Soloist". It's a really great movie. Hope you are having a great day. Hugs, PS

It really makes meals very very special. :-) I love the outdoor tablescape. I also like how you used mini pumpkins as candle holders and those tall glasses to hold a bouquet of roses! Very beautiful!

Oh Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! They are all so beautiful and such inspirations. I just love looking at your house because I too love blue and white. I have other colors but I try to base everything on blue and white.
