Farewell to Winter!

This is the third and last installment of my "think warm and end the winter doldrums" series of tablescapes! Next week, I don't care if we have a blizzard, I am doing something more spring-like!

Join me now as the morning sunlight
danced across my table!

I got the rooster plates and bowls years ago at Ross.
I found the large square plates, which still had the
Pottery Barn price tag of $12 per plate, at my local
 Goodwill store for $12 for all four plates!

The chargers were on clearance at Z Gallerie.

I did add a little bit of spring with
these pretty white blossoms!

I tied the napkins from World Market
 with some simple raffia.

These glasses are from Dollar Tree.

I love all the different shades of brown in these chargers.

I've been tablescaping now for six months, and enjoy it more and more each week. I'm so glad I listened to my sister and decided to join her. Thank you for letting me come into your home!

I will be joining:

Winter Thaw!

Still have snow, still have cold temperatures, so I am staying with my warm-up theme! I try to alternate between my kitchen and my dining room, but I knew my kitchen would continue to be the best backdrop for this dinner tablescape (it became a dinner tablescape when it kept getting later and later before I could get it put together!)

I hope you enjoy!

These colorful plates were the inspiration for this tablescape!

I've had this silk plant for years. I love the little feet
on the container. I tucked in a few berries to brighten
 it up, and some sparkly picks to repeat the sparkle in
the napkins, placemats, and fruit.

The glasses, napkins, sparkly fruit, and
both plates are from Goodwill!

The bowls, placemats, and flatware are from Ross! I consider Ross my home away from home. If you call me, there is a 50% chance I will be in a Ross store!

I received some very beautiful roses
from Mr. Wonderful this week!

Thanks for letting me share with you!

Winter Warm Up!

Last week I created an icy tablescape, completely void of color. Well, after getting two and a half feet of snow in the last week, I am ready to warm things up with color! I decided to set a lunch table for some steaming hot soup and salad. 

First, here is what the great outdoors looks
like in my neck of the woods!

Now, are you ready to see some color?

See, I wasn't kidding!

Are you warming up?

A simple glass bowl of fruit repeats the colors.

I hope these dishes purchased from
Goodwill don't make you dizzy!

I decided to alternate striped bowls and solid ones,
and green napkins and gold ones.

I found some colorful salt & pepper shakers, too!

Is it spring yet?

Thank you for visiting and I hope you stay warm!
