Tablescapes – My 10 Favorite Blog Posts

Later this year I will celebrate 9 years of blogging. My dear friend of 53 years, Arthur Brady, came over one night to (with the patience of a billion angels) help me set up for my new venture before retreating to the kitchen where he, Ramon and I made homemade pizzas. Arthur lost his hard-fought battle with cancer last week, and my heart has broken a million times over since. As perfect timing would have it, Susan from Between Naps on the Porch is hosting her 500th Tablescape Thursday this week and has invited participants to include 10 favorite tablescapes. For me that’s like picking my favorite 10 of 265 children. Without Arthur’s help, I wouldn’t have even one to share. So here’s to Arthur – friend, classmate, neighbor, computer nerd, and lover of all things Star Trek – who got me started, and to YOU who have kept me going.

In no particular order, my 10 favorite creations are:

Honey Bee Tea


All A’Bloom for Spring


Celebrating 85 Years of Fabulous


Casablanca Cool


September Wine


The Party She Deserves


All-American Seafood Boil


Ain’t Misbehavin’


Picnic Ants


Polly Wants a Party

Won’t you please join me along with many other bloggers who have participated in Susan’s Tablescape Thursday over the years to help her celebrate her 500th? You’ll get to see some of the best of the best from each blogger, and maybe you’ll pick up some ideas for your next soirée.

I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with an all new post for a Spring into Summer gathering that I think you’ll enjoy!

53 years of friendship. R.I.P. Arthur!
