Blayne Beacham's Black Pearl Giveaway!

My favorite place in my house - the dining room, as set for Father's Day Dinner.

This Photographer's Life is having a fantastic giveaway contest based on a photograph of your favorite place in your house. Blayne's giveaway is a $1200 Black Pearl Necklace from Nastro Bella Jewelry. For all of the details click here.

Blayne has asked each contestant to take a photo of his/her favorite place in his/her house and then write why it's the favorite place.

My favorite place in my house is my dining room. I love to entertain and so I adore big, old fashioned, pretty dining rooms. My dining room has so many architectural details and wallpaper that pulls it together. It works well for a dinner party, luncheon or cocktail party. It looks good in the daytime or at night. Since I was a child I have always loved to set the table. My daughter also loves to set the table with beautiful china, silver and crystal. We set the table in my photo together which makes it even more fun. It's set for the Father's Day dinner we're having with my parents. Happy Father's Day to all of you dads out there.

Here are some other photos of my dining room set for a party -
