I've admired others' tablescapes for some time now and decided to give one a try myself. It was a lot of fun combining a few new acquisitions with my own vintage pieces.
The blue salad plates and soup bowls are from Home Goods as are the napkins. All the other pieces are from around our home. The larger white plates were from Old Time Pottery about 20 years ago and the crystal goblets are from our wedding 25 years ago. (We should use these more....we aren't getting any younger!) The small white plates and the blue and white pitcher holding the flowers is from my mother-in-law.
She was also with me when I bought the dessert dishes and berry bowls at a local estate auction. Those blue stemmed wine glasses I recently bought at a resale shop when Wonderful Hubby and I were on a weekend get-away.
Can I make confession? The napkin rings are Dollar General shower curtain rings. Is that cheating?
Those are my hydrangeas! I'll show you the bush in a bit. The daisies and baby's breath were part of the table decorations for our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebration. I reused them for this display.
The flatware is from my great aunt and uncle. They had their monogram engraved on them. Their last name was Clark.
My hydrangeas all grew on the same bush! I'm not sure why they ranged from periwinkle blue to pink but we certainly have enjoyed them!!
Well, I have to admit that was fun! When I asked how to go about this tablescaping thing, several suggested I 'shop my house' to see what I could put together. It turned out to be a stroll down memory lane. I may have to try it again soon. Thanks for stopping by!
