Please join the party at Tablescape Thursday. to see many more wonderful tablescapes.
Tonight Hubby and I will be alone, so I thought I'd set a casual table for two.
The idea came from the thrifted salad plates. I snagged a set of 8. Something just drew me to them-kind of retro vintage. Found out the pattern is Homer Laughlin-Desert Lily. I thought they kind of looked tropical. The chargers were also thrifted-I only have 2, so I'll be on the lookout for something similar. Green plates-Good Will.
Wooden plates I've had for ages-I got them at a garage sale.
The flatware is Bakelite. I bid on a silent auction years ago at my local thrift store and won these.
The day I bought the Homer Laughlin plates I saw this. I'm not sure what it is-if anybody knows, please let me know. I thought the colors went perfect with the plates. It opens and there is a small accent piece on the other side of the flowers. I cut some oleander because I think it kind of ties in with the look.
Later I found this plate at a thrift store. I've seen the pattern out there, but don't know what it's called. I just got the one bowl.
The pineapple was made by my Aunt Ruth. I think it's a fun addition and will use it for our salad tonight. I made the placemats and napkins-fabric from Hancock Fabrics. Wooden napkin rings-thrift store found yesterday.
Thanks for all the bloggy love last week on my first scape. You guys are awesome! My goal is to use mostly what I have and supplement things from GW or thrift stores. So far so good.
Have a great weekend!
