Celebrating 14 years and 700 Tablescapes!

Welcome to the 700th Tablescape Thursday!

Wow! I can not believe this is our 700th Tablescape Thursday! Tablescape Thursday got its start back on August 24th, 2008, only back then our party was on Tuesday of each week so it was called Tablescape Tuesday. This beachy table below was the first table setting I ever shared for TT. I had just added on a screened porch the previous fall/winter and was super excited to set a table with the dinnerware I had purchased for the porch a few months earlier. Thirteen lovely bloggers joined in on that first Tablescape party and here we are, almost 14 years later, still celebrating the joy and excitement of creating beautiful tables for our friends and family!

The Very First Tablescape Party

For our 700th Tablescape Thursday celebration, I’m sharing and linking out to a few of the table settings I’ve put together over the years.  (Note: I’m running a bit behind this morning due to the cable being out this morning for the 3rd day in a row. Argggh.) Since spring is nigh upon us, instead of sharing a mix of tables from all seasons, I’m focusing on spring/summer tables this week. If you would love to see additional tables, click on the category “TABLESCAPES” at the top of the blog and you’ll find all the tables I’ve posted over the years categorized by Holiday, Occasion, Season, and Theme. There’s even a category there for Napkin Folds Tutorials.

Thank you so much for being here reading and thanks so much to all the wonderful, talented dearhearts who join this fun party each week! You bring so much joy to friends and family with the beautiful tables you create! I’m looking forward to the next 100 tablescapes and the next 100 after that! ♥

Hope you enjoy these spring-summer table settings! (To view any of the tables linked below in more detail, click the title link for that table.)

Had to include at least one table in this post where I used the shell chargers that took so many hours to make. Being a glutton for punishment, I made a second set of six with colorful sea glass.

Tablescape Thursday


If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address. To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.

That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses and scammers from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.) If you see a post that’s not table-setting related, let me know and I’ll remove it.

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links. Please link up table setting or table setting related posts only for Tablescape Thursday.
