Valentines DAy is coming.......

It has been a long time since I have had a post for "Pink Saturday".....lately it has been hard for me to find enough pink to share( I do, after all live in a house hold with only men...even the cat is a male!)

This evening though I set one of my first Valentines Day Tables and I do believe that it would be fitting to share one of the many pictures with you all today and this way celebrate my return to Pink Saturday.

Ringing in a golden year

Happy Friday Everyone, todays tablescape was one I through together for NewYearsEve..... Even though we did not have a large celebration, I just could not resist creating just one more gold table. My favorite part of my holiday tables are all the bulbs I can use.....I do believe I have just about every color there is!

Happy Weekend Everyone

Shades of Green

Color of the Year 2017 is PANTONE.....a pretty shade of green!!

You betcha...this inspired me to create a tablescape with green being the primary color! How lucky am I, that I just happen to have a beautiful green tablecloth and of course my lovely green dishes.

See the birch logs? My husband and I went out in the 10 minute snow storm to find those!! Not sure why I could not wait...but once I get an idea in my head, I tend not to be able to wait! 😁

For this tablescape I decided to set out butter/roll plates with a small knife. The plate is actually the saucer for the soup bowl, but I think it works just fine as a butter/roll plate

The Charger Plates are beautiful crystal chargers from Nachtmann... The White Dinner Plates are from Rosenthal

Hope Everyone is having a great Wednesday Evening........

Let it Snow...Let it Snow

 It is snowing in Kleinmachnow.....yes we are finally getting some snow. Now for my fellow germans, we got a lot of snow, but for this Illinois Girl it was a nice start...but by far not enough!!!!!

 On days like this, I tend to sit at my desk and surf the web.......Facebook, PeopleMag, Yahoo News and of course Pinterest! Everytime I open Pinterest, I find so many ideas that I want to try out......just not enough time in a day. Recently I stumbled on what cool a site. Seeing as tablescapes are my thing, I of course checked out their dining room tables and dishes and stemware.. all the fun stuff!

 But for now, grab that cup of coffee and enjoy my snowy tablescape!

Once again....cricut explore to the rescue......Love my light blue snow flakes


Wishing everyone a happy day!

 Tablescaping has truly become a passion of mine. This year I hoping to publish my first book of tablescapes. Since I live in Germany, the book will be written in german by a friend of mine.

 This past week I tackeled the task of putting away all the Christmas Decorations....WOW, what a job and I think, no I know, my Christmas Decoration Collection has expanded has I had to go to Ikea to get more storage boxes(DARN!!!!) Now that the holidays are over I am trying out some new ideas for winter tablescapes.

 Here is the first one.......

Thank you Mr. Ikea.....the votives are perfect for this table design

The blue dishes are from my mother in law...I think they go quite well with this design

Ah, my two fellows. They were my splurge for the Christmas Season 2016. Although they were bought for Christmas, I feel they work in this table setting as well.

love his eyes

I took my pine cones and pimped them with a little silver spray

Wishing you all a happy Sunday sure to stop by later this week for my second winter setting.
