Since I have been in a green & white mood for spring, it is only natural it would branch off onto my table.
So for Tablescape Thursday this week, I give you my Spring Tablescape.
My tabletop needs to be refinished so I had to use this tan colored tablecloth. I got it at Walmart last year for about $10.00. I like that it sort of looks like burlap, but is much softer. I guess I should have ironed it. But I didn't. So we will all have to live with that.
The moss runner is new. I got it last weekend at the new Michael's in town. I had a 50% off coupon so I got it for $6.49. The only problem is, it is sort of stinky. My hubby came in & wanted to know what smelled. I told him it was probably the runner. He got up closer & agreed it was indeed the runner. Other than the smell, it looks fabulous. And now that it has been a few days, it doesn't stink as much. Either that or we are just getting used to the smell.
The brown rattan placemats came from Ross last year. As well as the bamboo flatware.
I love the darker bamboo flatware better than the lighter colored ones. The dark goes with more of my dishes. I think I paid $12.00 for a set of four place settings.
The napkins came from Walmart a year or so back at Christmas time. I did iron the napkins for you. The wooden napkin rings were a thrift store find last year.
I love these salad plates. I found them last year at TJ Maxx. I think they were $2 or $3 a plate. The green leaves just calm me for some reason.
The dinner plates are my latest ironstone find. I got a complete set of dishes for $15.00 at the thrift store. 8 plates, 7 salad plates, 8 saucers, 7 tea cups. But no bowls. I already had 4 dinner exactly the same that I had picked up over the years from various thrift stores.
Here is the stamp on the back of the white ironstone. Even though it isn't English ironstone, it is still ironstone.
The birdy finials came from Michael's this year. I got them on clearance.
And of course, what is a spring tablescape without Harold & Maude my Target birdy S&P shakers. I had a heck of a time remembering where I had put them last year. I thought they had flown the coop.
The white vase came from Restoration Hardware about 15 years ago. A girlfriend gave me $100 gift card for Christmas one year & this was one of the items I bought. I love that store, but it is way over my budget. So it is thrilling when someone gives me a gift card so I can shop there. OK, so it has only been once, but it was still thrilling. I actually broke the vase a few months back but hubby glued it back together. He has many talents. You can only tell on the backside that it was ever broken.
The green flowers (I have not a clue what they are) came from Michael's a few weeks back on clearance.
The hurricane vases came from Walmart about 4 years ago. They were like $5.00 each. I used them for my wedding. I still have 6 of them left. For this tablescape I filled 2 of them with small rocks and moss from the Dollar Tree. Placed a cheap candle on top & surrounded the candle with grapevine I picked up at my local thrift store for 25 cents.
The glasses are my Walmart Libby goblets. Four for $5.00. Cheap!! I've had them for years.
I hope that you have enjoyed my spring tablescape. Now if only I can keep the clutter off the table for a week, I will be happy.
Any maybe I can get my hubby to use one of his many talents & refinish my table top this weekend. But I'm not holding my breath. As he will probably want me to clean the garage in exchange, and I really don't want to do that. I'd rather play with my dishes.
