2011 Parade of Homes Tablescapes/Part One

Monday I told you about a very special outing that I was going on with a friend.  On Tuesday, we went to the 2011 Parade of Homes here in Columbia, South Carolina.  I was so excited!   I took my camera as promised and have well over 500 photos to show of these beautifully decorated homes.  More about all that later though!

Today, I've put together a little teaser post for all of you and for Tablescape Thursday.  I just couldn't help myself.  There were so many beautifully decorated tables.  I don't just hope you will enjoy these, I know you will!  I am going to hold off on any commentary, so you can just sit back and enjoy the photos.
































So, what do you think?  Pretty impressive huh?

The previous photos were taken at three of  five homes on the tour.  I have saved more photos to share with you for next weeks tablescaping party.  I didn't want to overwhelm you too much in one day.  LOL! 

I also want to make sure I give credit to the those who are responsible for these beautiful table
scapes.  We certainly have some very talented and exciting designers in our area.  The following is a list of those designers responsible for the previous photos.

Bonnie Younginer of Cobb/Younginer Interiors
Gwen Ehlers, Richard Couture & Trina Haslinger of Essex Homes Design Team
Diane Benda and students from Midlands Technical College Interior Decorating Certificate Program

I hope you enjoyed this tour of tablescapes and if you did be sure and follow me over the next few weeks here at The Decorative Dreamer.  In addition to doing another table scape post next week,  I plan to show you each home in more detail.  I will break it up so that each home has it's own post and maybe even see if I can figure out a way to let you vote on them too.  If any of you know how to add the voting poles to my blog I would love some tips. 

Thank for visiting today, I really appreciate it.
I also really like to hear from you when you do!  (hint-hint)
Have a great day!
