Tablescape Tuesday - The TABLESCAPE AWARDS!!

Hi guys!

I hope you are doing great and having a great week! 

We had made plans to go to my son's best friend's Birthday party so I didn't create a tablescape for this week's Sunday family dinner.   We ended up not going after all (long story, but it involved two misbehaving kids in trouble...big trouble...lol)  so I just kept up the old tablescape for our dinner.

Soooooo, since I don't have a table of my own to share with you, I thought I'd do something a little different....

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you....the HOME GIRL'S TABLESCAPE AWARDS, 2013 "Preview" edition!!!

This is a shortened version of a longer "awards" post that will come later in the year...but I wanted to give you a taste of what is to come! 

Here are just a few of the categories...in no particular order!

The first award goes out for BEST BLING!   This table is a delight to look at...it's grand and stately....the bling is awesome....everything is put together so nicely...and the NAME of the tablescape is absolutely awesome!

And the award for BEST BLING goes to......

Alycia Nichols of "Table Twenty-One" for her SHOULD HAVE PUT A RING ON IT Tablescape!!

Up Next....The award for BEST USE OF COLOR!    This table wows from the moment you view it!   I love her brilliant colors in this Cinco De Mayo table and she really made a festive table with these gorgeous colors which, what seemed to me, the perfect amount of every color represented!!

So without further ado....the award for the BEST USE OF COLOR  goes to....

Ann from "Corner of Plaid and Paisley" for her Color Explosion Table!!

The next award is for MOST CREATIVE TABLESCAPE...and it goes to someone who really wowed me with her creativity!  Even some of the food she served was just so creative!

And the award for MOST CREATIVE TABLESCAPE goes to....Jenna from The Painted Apron with her Bunny Garden Tablecape.   You have to check out the whole post to see all the creative ideas she had!

This is a shortened version of the Tablescape Awards, but be on the lookout later this year when I do the full version...complete with more categories and possibly even prizes!  =D

Hopefully this will also entice you to post your best tablescapes on my new Link Party...the FESTIVE FRIDAY FIESTA!!!   This runs every week starting Thursday nights at 8pm ET through Sundays at 8pm ET.  

Thanks again for joining me and I hope you have a great day!  Congratulations to the "winners"!   =D


  1. Great choices! I will certainly join you at your terrific meme, Festive Friday Fiesta. I did last friday too, with my 5 de Mayo table. Big hugs,

  2. Congratulations to the winners...each one certainly deserves to win!

  3. Oh, my! All of these are beautiful tablescapes, all so different but each just as exciting! Thanks.

  4. Thank you! That's so sweet of you! I can't take credit for the title, though, y'know! ;-)

    I'm glad you posted these because I had missed Ann's Cinco de Mayo post. I just went over there and checked it out and, as expected, it was a total winner! I love all the color she used!!! I had already seen Jenna's sweet bunny garden. SO cute!!!

    Sorry the little ones are cuttin' up. It's that time of year: Spring Fever! I think all the kids just lose their little minds for a hot minute!

    Have a great Hump Day, and thanks again for the shout out!

  5. What a clever idea! You picked some winners here! Great job! ~ Sarah

  6. Wow,thanks so much HG! I am so flattered to be with included with these great tables from Alycia and the Corner of Plaid and Paisley~ I am so sorry your Sunday plans fell through, but of course I am thrilled you shared my Bunny Garden! I admire you sticking to the rules, hard to do sometimes with the kiddos but will pay off in the end! See you Friday!
