Susan from Between Naps On The Porch has been hosting Tablescape Thursday for 10 years, and this week is the 500th tablescape blog link party. In honor of the anniversary, Susan asked participants to put together a collection of their favorite tablescapes.
Prior to launching Debbee’s Buzz, I followed and was inspired and motivated by many of Susan and other bloggers’ holiday, seasonal, and special occasion tablescapes. Unfortunately, that also led to my now extensive collection of tableware with the associated storage issues LOL!
Unlike the other long-time bloggers, I have only six months and 20 plus tablescapes in my post library. My tablescapes begin at Thanksgiving, with nothing yet for summer, July 4th or Halloween (oh but I have plans!).
Since the majority of Debbee’s Buzz subscribers have come on board since February, I’m hoping you’ll enjoy this look back at earlier tablescapes you might have missed. The tablescapes are in chronological order. Links go to the original posts for more pictures and details.

Although I was able to kick off Debbee’s Buzz at the end of last October, there just wasn’t time to set any spooky tables. And, as a blogger newbie, my photo editing and initial posts are less polished than they are now (I hope!).
2019 Update: Since publishing this post, I have gone on to share two Halloween theme tables. Take a look (if you dare!) at Eye of Newt, Spooky Halloween Tablescape and Haunted Halloween Hallows Tablescape.
Gobble, Gobble, Time for Turkey
I did post three different Thanksgiving themed tablescapes, along with two fall decorated chandeliers.
Cornucopia Takes Center Stage on Thanksgiving Table showcases my china, Waterford crystal, and peacock accent plates and flatware. The centerpiece includes a giant cornucopia and Byer’s Choice figures.
Overhead, acorns and fall leaves dangle from How to Decorate a Dining Room Chandelier for Fall.
Birds of a Feather
My latest tablescape, Exotic Peacock Tablescape Graces Formal Dining Room, features a second set of peacock dishes.
Set in the kitchen, Turkey Tureen is Star of Thanksgiving Table incorporates my great-grandmother’s crystal stemware.

Lastly for fall, I shared a few everyday kitchen place settings in Casual Thanksgiving Tableware Decorates Home.
Most Wonderful Time of the Year
I must have five or six different kinds of holiday dishes, but only had time to post two tablescapes. Enchanting Woodland Tablescape features one of my very favorite centerpieces. It’s built on top of a red toboggan. Can you spot it?
That post was followed by Christmas Brunch at the Red Barn Tablescape.
Using the same dishes, the table is reinvented with a twig and birch candle centerpiece, vintage glasses, holly linens and favors.
2019 Update: Casual Christmas Table Set for Holiday Season was new the following year.
It was followed by the more formal Nutcracker Collection Christmas Centerpiece & Table.
Pop the Cork
Kicking off 2018 was a Celestial Tablescape Rings in New Year.
In New Years Eve Tablescape: Diamonds & Top Hat, stylishly dressed penguins and owls celebrate a night on the town.
Packing away Christmas decorations, I always keep out winter decor into February. I’m waiting to see if the groundhog sees his shadow. Six more weeks of winter led to 5 Snowman Centerpieces Decorate Winter Table.
Continuing to ignore the freezing temperatures, I invited a few friends to a little party. Here is Polar Bear Frolic in Sleigh Ride Tablescape.
And, because my family loves to hit the slopes, I set up a Welcome to the Apres-Ski Lodge Buffet. While snow continued to fall outside…
Tablescapes Hit Sweet Spot
In February, Debbee’s Buzz starting gaining a little traction and more followers. That was probably because I started participating in blog link parties. And thanks to experienced bloggers, Liz, Linda and Alycia, I finally got my comment system up and running! I love hearing and “conversing” with you (hint, hint…).
A Valentines Day Tea Party with Friends was the first tablescape that generated over 200 pins.
Decorating with Red Heart Ornaments for Valentines Day is a formal tablescape with decorated chandelier. I also included views of other casual settings. If You Love Me, Take Me to Paris is pictured below.
Happy Birthday George & Abe!
My most unique tablescape to date is probably, Set a Presidents Day Table with Liberty Blue. It featured Byer’s Choice Abe and George figures as a centerpiece.
Irish Eyes Smiling
In March, I found gold with over 1,100 pins of Elegant, Easy Shamrock Tablescape for St. Patrick’s Day.
My favorite tablescape is Beatrix Potter Easter Hunt in Mr. McGregor’s Garden. I was also delighted and thrilled to see it featured on Celebrate Your Story. To date, it’s also received the most comments of any post.
Chocolate Rabbit Centerpiece, Vignette for Easter Table was really calorie free, LOL! And, the post includes how you can create your own faux chocolate.
Busy as a Bee
I’m working on a tablescape post created to wish a Hap-BEE Birthday to my honey. Puns so sweet it makes your teeth hurt?. Stay tuned to see the hive cake, decorated chandelier and table setting.
Happy Anniversary Tablescape Thursday!
I want to thank Susan for hosting the weekly Tablescape Thursday blog party. In addition, Susan was kind enough to feature two of My Favorite Things Parties across four posts. That motivated me to start blogging.
Follow along if you are interested in seeing a variety of table setting ideas year-round.
