Tablescape Thursday #5

tablescape Thanks for joining us for our fifth Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to visit our good friend Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for links to all of the other tablescapes this week.

Shelley (SHEL) and Laura (LRA) volunteered to be this week’s tablescape architects. Their inspiration came from a cute white folding table and chairs set and the thought of summer soon being here. Here are a few hints of what’s to come (as a reminder, please click on the pictures for a closer look):ts5-03 Ocean hues of blues and greens…

ts5-17 Clear crystal…

ts5-09 Green glass…
