A year in review-Tablescapes

Cindy over at My Romantic Home is having 2009 A Year in Review party today. So I thought I would join in on her party. Cindy has a fabulous blog with lots of eye candy. Be sure to visit her & all of the participants.

Welcome to the last Tablescape Thursday of 2009. I want to thank Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this fun weekly event. Who would have ever thought it would have grown as much as it has. I guess I'm not the only one who enjoys putting together tablescapes.

Since it is the end of the year I thought I would share some collages of all the tablescapes I've done over the past year.

January: Happy New Year!

February: Have a Romantic Valentine's Day
February: Valentine's Day Fun

I didn't do any tablescapes in August. I guess I was on vacation that month.

September: Roosters

October: Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me
November: Thanksgiving Tablescape #1

November: Happy Thanksgiving
December: Merry Christmas
And finally I wanted to share my second Christmas tablescape. I managed to get my family room table set just in time for Christmas.

December: Winter Wonderland
I hope that you have enjoyed looking back at all the tablescapes I shared this past year. In full disclosure I must tell you that we only actually ate off of a few of these tablescapes. But setting the table keeps me from piling the tables up with papers & junk. My goal for 2010 is to eat on at least half of the tablescapes I do.

I hope that each of you has a safe & Happy New Year. Don't drink & drive. And I look forward to sharing many more tablescapes in the new year. As well as look forward to what you all have to share as well.

Happy New Year!!!

  4. I'm so appreciative of those bloggers doing the "Year in Review" for TT this week and yours is no exception! I know I have missed seeing a lot of your fine work in the months gone by and enjoyed looking at them now. My favs are the Easter one with the beautiful bunny dishes and the St. Pat's Day with the green!
    Happy 2010!

  10. Dear Kim ,

    Wow!~ What endless inspiration and so amazingly creative and endlessly unique, with a sparkle of undeniable artistry interwoven throughout each masterpiece!!..,

    How do you do it?~I hope in the new year you'll share your treasure trove and dish pantry, or cupboard with us!~ It must be simply fabulous!..,

    Do feel most welcome to pop over to my little corner of the blogging world for a pot of "Rosey Lee",(or coffee if you prefer)!~He he..,

    ..,We'll enjoy some delightful noshings with our afternoon tea treats and chat about the finer points of our creations; you with your amazing table scapes darling, and perhaps I with my paintings~ shall we?..,

    Happy New Years dear lady!~ As I am a lover of all things tea related and therefore perhaps, a "tealady", perhaps I should say rather, have a "tea-licious", as well as a "delicious" New Year in 2010!..,

    With all of those fab "Tablescape Thursday" tablescapes, my guess is that perhaps you could use a spot of tea and some goodies to be served on those lucious plates, teacups and assorted tablescape lovelies my dear!.., Take care!

    Cheers from Wanda Lee @ Silken Purse blog
