tablescape thursday: simple pretty


it's tablescape thursday...hosted by between naps on the porch...take a peek at all of the other great tablescapes posted there! :)

welcome!  come on in and take a look around!
i adorned all 4 chairs with simple white bows made of tulle.
i love the simplicity of a black and white polka dot pot and simple white flowers.


i had some place mats that i bought from homegoods..i figured now was as good as time as ever, hence my starting point and inspiration.


i love accents of birds.
and what table isn't complete without a little candlelight? ;)
simple. basic.





a closer look ;)






and of course, ella is lured to anything candle, just for the entertainment of blowing them out. haha.  i guess it makes a good end pic..haha!
thanks for stopping by! :)

Very pretty. I love the black and white with the splash of yellow. Polka Dots are always a hit with me. Your picture looking down at the table is very fun. Love, love, love your table.

What a stunning tablescape. I love the round, yellow placemats. It just pops against the black table top. Great overhead shot! I also love the polka dots. Well done!

Although I did not post a Tablescape this time around, I love stopping by everyone's tables. I just had to comment on yours. I just love the look of black and white. The way you combined it with the yellow and the polka dot centerpiece...love it, love it! Your dining table is great in the black. Great job! Oh..and your little one looks so cute blowing out the candle! Very sweet!
