Link Party time my friends and we have some special tablescapes that I want to share with you as my favorite featured links.
This week has been a very busy week, it seems like the Captain and I are meeting each other coming and going.
Have you ever had weeks like that?
I am sure you have and you barely have time to say hello and good-bye.
So early this morning, the Captain and I went out for a quiet breakfast at one of our favorite diners.
It was so enjoyable to let others cook for me, as I didn’t worry about clean-up and put-away, instead I just sat and enjoyed.
We need to take time, if only for a few minutes… for ourselves, away from meetings, school activities, and if you are younger parents, driving from extra curricular activities which are so important to our children, but which can be draining to parents.
Been there…done that.
I thought once I retired I would be sitting around twiddling my thumbs and nothing could be farther from reality.
I am busier than when I worked a 9-5 job.
(Only I worked an earlier schedule as I liked my late afternoons free.)
Fortunately, I was able to choose my own hours.
And that brings me to choosing my favorite tablescapes from last week’s Link Party.
First up and in no particular order is a St. Patrick’s Day tablescape.
This is from Sandra at Dinner for Eight.
I was attracted to the table runner which Sandra named Celtic patterns for the table!
To Sandra: I love the various shades of green and the sweet little sheep appear as though they are grazing in a meadow. Great job.
Next up is a Springtime tablescape from Rita at Panoply
I was immediately drawn in by the beautiful tea pot and dinner plates of Rita’s sweet tablescape.
The softness of the pink napkins, glassware and centerpiece were a perfect combination for the darkness of the dinnerware.
To Rita: The juxtaposition is perfect and I would be thrilled to be sitting at your lovely table for a Spring brunch or lunch.
Another St. Patrick’s Day tablescape comes from the mother/daughter duo from Across the Blvd .,
Beverly and Gloria live across the street from each other and combine their talents to show us a beautiful tablescape AND give us a DIY on how they made it happen.
The DIY is for the cute little Shamrock napkin rings and the table runners are dollar store scarves.
To Beverly and Gloria: I am going to make those napkin rings, so simple and perfect for your holiday table.
Most Clicked Feature From Last Week.
Apparently, our readers loved the tablescapes too because they chose another beautiful Spring tablescape as their most clicked or most visited post.
It is no surprise that this tablescape comes from Pam at Everyday Living!
I love how the centerpiece is a show stopper.
When I first saw this white cylinder vase filled with Bells of Ireland and other pretty green flowers, I was blown away.
To Pam: I don’t know where your inspiration comes from, but your beautiful soft green and white colors definitely announce that Spring is on it’s way.

Sandra @ Dinner at Eight says
Thanks, Kari, for featuring my Celtic table! I’m honored to be in such great company. I didn’t get a chance to view any of the posts shared yesterday — one of those incredibly busy days you’re talking about! But my daughter very kindly posted my botanical garden post for me (since it was her idea to go there! lol).
Thank you Sandra for linking up…thanks to your daughter also. 🙂 Where do those busy days come from??? I say leave me alone…sometimes. LOL
Such lovely tablescapes! Spring is in the air! Pam’s centerpiece is such a stunning work of beauty!

Thanks dear friend. And thank you for linking up each week. we love it. Hugs
