We all love to entertain in our 'cottages'. Our cottage styles really shine when we combine favorite recipes or take-out with cherished dinnerware, beverageware, serving pieces, silverware, linens, placemats, and beloved collections to create wonderful seasonal tablescapes in a comfy nook for one, on an intimate table for two, for a small get-together, or for a grand gathering. Themes are as boundless as our imaginations. Each table a cottage one-of-a-kind. This week long Blog Party is open to everyone.

Please check out the Blog Party Rules Page and use Inlinkz below to join the party.Please remember this is a blog party, NO Selling Sites . Selling sites will be removed,

I Need Your Help!!!

I enjoy hosting Blog Parties for Embracing Cottage Style. Meeting all of you is the main reason I love to do it. 

 Usually on the first Wednesday of the Month the party

would be up and running, but last month no one came to the party.
No one has sent a message today wondering where it is. 

Here is where I could use everyone's help whether you are a member of ECS or an Embracing Cottage Style Blogspot visitor. Market Monday is a very popular party every month, but why are the other blogspot parties not getting a lot of attendees...is it just Summer.....are there not enough variety of  themes? Would you rather see daily link-in posts than weekly parties? I love this blog and it's potential as a unique gathering place. This Wednesday please leave a comment for me with any and all of your suggestions on how we can increase attendance here at the Embracing Cottage Style Blogspot.
I  really appreciate all your help and see you next Monday for
Cottage Vintage Finds and Wednesday for Cottage Stitchery.
