Top 10 Tablescapes for 2012

Dear Readers, I am back from a long blogging break and am excited to begin blogging again.  Yesterday I sent back my husband to Virginia --- I took a blogging break so I could spend time with him and our children during the holidays.  I hope you had a great holiday season.
Today I am highlighting the most viewed tablescapes of 2012.  I have always enjoyed setting a nice table, and was able to entertain and set a nice table during the holidays.
Number 1 Most Viewed Post -- Christmas Home or Home for Christmas

I set the table for Christmas Eve with these dishes.

Number 2 Most Viewed Post -- The Naughty Table
I loved coming up with the concept of this table.  Do you know of anyone who should have sat here this year?
Number 3 Most Viewed Post -- Easter

I did a short segment on tablescaping for the local cable television station using this table.
Number 4 Most Viewed Post -- Let It Snow

Last year I couldn't get enough of snow!
Number 5 Most Viewed Post -- Candy Corn Craze

I loved the look of plastic dishes with fancy dishes on this table.
Number 6 Most Viewed Post -- An Invitation to Sit at the Nice Table

Where did you belong this year the Nice or Naughty Table?
Number 7 Most Viewed Post -- Favorite Colors Tablescape

It is no surprise that I am a lover of red, but I also think red and turquoise look smashing together!
Number 8 Most Viewed Post -- Love is in the Air!
Just love all the red going on here!
Number 9 Most Viewed Post -- Prom Tablescape

My son and his date, and another couple had their Prom dinner at our home.  Our girls and Danielle, our family friend helped pull it all together.  We used the elephant plates that my son had given me for my birthday!
Number 10 Most Viewed Post -- Pumpkins Elevated

Around the fall season, pumpkins take on a high role in my love!  I am just crazy about pumpkins!
Tablescaping has been a bit of a challenge as all of my dishes are in boxes as I was prepared to move.  I look forward to another fun year of tablescaping, blogging, and visiting your blogs.

I love recaps! I will have to do one. Everything comes and goes so quickly on blogs that it is fun to see them. I forgot some of them, like the Let It Snow one.

So glad you took time off to be with hubby and had all of that wonderful time to spend together. Hope by next year you will be blogging in Virginia!

Oh, that was fun! I do remember seeing your Naughty table during the holidays and thought it was so clever! It was fun to browse through your other tables, I especially loved the Easter one with the aqua touches!

Joni, Glad you enjoyed your visit with your husband.

You are a very talented designer. Every tablescape featured today was different and unique. You do know how to do it.

I have so much to learn and am greatly interested so I need to get with it.

Welcome back, Joni! You were SO smart to take the needed time off to spend time with your husband and family. There is always time for blogging. Family...we gotta love on them when we can! :-) You had a great 2012, and I look forward to your boundless creativity in 2013.

Joni, I'm glad you did the recap as I had missed a few. I simple adore the first photo. Glad you took time off to be with hubby. With spring and summer around the corner, hopefully your house will sell and you will be blogging in Virginia!

Hi, Joni. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my Three Kings celebration post. I'm glad I came on over; I'm going to be your newest follower as soon as I hit "Publish Your Comment" :). I can see why these were the top viewed--your tables are so interesting and fun. (Interesting that I describe them as interesting, when your About Me is all about "interesting." :) ) It's nice to "meet" you. ~Zuni

Cathy said...

Beautiful, Joni! It is such a treat to sit at a nicely set table. Your Christmas setting is my fav. Happy New Year!
