Tablescape Thursday at BNOTP

I know, I know... It's FRIDAY!   However, if you read my blog regularly, you know how much I LOVE Between Naps on the Porch's blog.  I try to read her blog daily (it's my indulgence in this year of DISCIPLINE!).  I was lucky enough to meet Susan this past Fall and she's as lovely as her blog.  I hope we can continue to visit with each other since we've become fast friends.  

Susan's blog showcases so many beautiful suggestions on how to add beauty to our homes through rearranging a room, adding an element to take a room to the next level, or setting up a tablescape for our tables.  When I saw her post yesterday regarding a New Year's Eve table created by her friend, I just had to share!  HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS TABLE? (I've only included one photo... You need to go to Susan's blog to see the rest.  Believe me, it's well worth it!)   With our lives so busy, most of us do not take the time to go to this much effort.  

But really, how much effort does this take?  And what a statement!  In my opinion, the woman who created this table really knows how to pay attention to details.  A bow tie or mask is used as a napkin holder.  Ingenious!  I love the clock salad plates!  Love, LOVE!  Unfortunately, Susan tried to find them online, to no avail.  So, she shared a link to this blog from Sharlotte on how to make your own clock plate.  Do you see why I love blogging?  There are so many gifted ladies and gents out there in Blogland!  

Take the small amount of time it takes to add some beauty and whimsy to your life today.  It's so well worth it.

Have a great Friday!
