Tablescapes, Celebrating a Special Anniversary

This is the 500th Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch!

Wowza, that’s a lot of tablescapes!

In honor of Susan’s special anniversary, she asked us to share some of our very favorite tablescapes from our own archives

How do I choose 5-10 favorite tables from my list of 270?

I decided to pick favorites by season, but it was hard!

This is one of my very first tablescapes, and still one of my favorites

Walk on the Wild Side

    Tablescaping is a beautiful artform!

  4. I always look forward to your tablescape posts, Jenna. They are positively lovely. Enjoy your weekend.

  5. Jenna, wow 270 tablescapes! I am amazed at how you do it all. I love every table that you chose and could not possible pick a favorite. The Hark the Herald Angels Sing makes my heart sing! I love this glam Tablescape and remember it well!

    Your tables are always so special, Jenna! You put your whimsical touch on everything that makes them so unique. I think my favorite is the Vegetable garden, mostly because of your creative centerpiece!! It was hard to choose though – all of your tables make me smile!! It has been wonderful sharing our tables over the years!!

    All your tables are so creative, Jenna! I’m really fond of that one with the corn as the centerpiece…how easy and how pretty!! You have such a magical way of making your tables look so fun to be a guest at. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Oh I just love them all. Picking a favorite would be hard here lady! I am especially drawn to the Seas’n’greeting. So different and calls my name in Florida where even at Christmas most often our temps are warm. PERFECT! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. This is so fun reviewing everyone’s posts. I’ve always enjoyed your posts by the water and the Ghosts of Pirates Past is a favorite. You’re creativity is always inspirational!

  10. I have always enjoyed your tables, but since you’ve listed your favorites I’m picking Nest Eggs with a Cotton Tail Tree as mine! Here’s to seeing more of them!

    You make every meal special Jenna with your creativity!! 💕🍴😊

    Jenna, How fun to see your round up and take a walk down memory lane! I remember all of these wonderfully creative tables from you from your Walk on the Wild Side to Ghosts of Pirates Past which still makes me chuckle and want to exclaim ‘Shiver Me Timbers!’ 😉 Would love to sit will all your little gobblers at the “Little Turkey” table for Thanksgiving. Happy Weekend ♥

  13. Gorgeous and creative tables, all of them special and fun!!

  14. Sorry I’m late to the party Jenna. Such an amazing post of tablescapes. All are unique and beautiful, you are one talented gal! I can’t choose a favorite, they’re all my favorites!

  15. I’m torn between your Cottontail Tree table (one of my favorites I saw for Easter) and the Little Turkey table. I know kids would love their own table — I used to have such fun styling them for my daughter and her friends when they were small. Congrats for 270!

  16. I had a hard time picking from even fewer than you have accumulated over the years! It’s really tough when it comes down to it, isn’t it?!! You picked some goodies, though! It’s interesting to me just how many people have chosen their first published tablescape as one of their favorites. I almost did, but it didn’t make the final cut. Yours did…with good reason! Keep on ‘scapin’, girl!!!

    FInally catching up after vacation, Jenna, and loved seeing all your choice tables. I missed out on this, but sure enjoyed yours and the others’ who participated. You have some really great tables. I love the seas’ns greetings (recency effect, perhaps?).

  18. These are so pretty! My first tablescape was a hot mess and I wouldn’t dare show anyone. Your tables are so much fun to look at and I love your creativity. Thanks for joining us again at Celebrate Your Story, have a great weekend.
