Sister Act II-Elaine

It's time for Sister Act II! My sister, Robin, and I used the same animal print placemats as inspiration for this week's tablescape. How similar and how different will they be? Let's find out!

I hope you enjoy!

There was no doubt I would set this table in my kitchen. Even though the day was overcast, the skylight always provides good lighting!

I borrowed this wall sconce from my living room, and replaced the aqua glass with clear glass.

The animal print dishes came from Ross, and the square Pottery Barn plates came from Goodwill.

I found this pair of candleholders at Goodwill and knew they would be perfect. I did give the masks a few coats of gold paint.

I decided to do ivory on ivory with my napkins and rings, because there is already so much pattern and contrast going on. The rings were on clearance at Tuesday Morning.

The centerpiece and the goblets also came from Goodwill.

I couldn't wait to light the candles!

Thank you so much for visiting! I know my sister and I have a lot of fun doing these Sister Acts, and I'm sure there will be more in the future!

So beautifully exotic! The dishes and the Goodwill candle holders are perfect! The color of the table and the wall are just icing on the cake. I am afraid to go visit your sister's because I am in love with yours ♥

Hi Elaine!
I love what you did! I'm always attracted to animal prints! I'm surprised I don't own a lot of it!
I like that stemware a lot too- it has a nice body on it! Woohoo!! LOL
I like your center arrangement it goes perfectly with this theme and the masks are cool on the candleholders! I guess I better check your sister's out too!

Robin said...

Those dishes look great on the placemats and great buys at the GW especially those glasses (so pretty!). I would say our tables are pretty similiar. Thanks again for giving me the placemats. I know I will use them in real life too!

I seriously wish I could find great buys like you do at Goodwill! That stemware is absolutely gorgeous, and the candle holders are perfect for this tablescape...especially with your gold treatment! Most everything in the thrift stores I go to is trash. I hit several kinds of thrift stores in lots of different areas in an effort to find good stuff, but to no avail. I think I have hit the jackpot only 3 times. :-( This is a really cool looking table, and it's perfect for this warm weather! I'm off to visit your sis!

Great tablescape you have created from the placemats. Love the animal print and the goblets. Good finds at GW too. OK, I've going over to Robins to see her version. Cute idea for the Sister Act.

Debbie said...

I just came from your sister's place. I can't believe how similar your tastes are yet how unique each table it. Let me say again how much I love this cute idea!

As for your table, I love it. My favorite part is the candlestick with the mask. Who would have thought you could find something so perfect at GW!

Your candle holders are so perfect for this theme, Elaine. I love the animal prints and you did a great job putting it all together.....Christine

Linda @ A La Carte said...

What fun the Sister Act is! Love your table setting. I saw Robins already and I too am amazed at how similar but still how you each put your own spin on the tables. Love your dishes! Fun and I hope you will do it again! Hugs, Linda

Kathleen said...

I am not a fan of animal prints, but this is wonderful! I love all your finds! The goblets are great and will go with so many Fall scapes! You put it all together beautifully, and the centerpiece is perfect for this table. I can't wait to see Robin's , but I have to go in order or I will get mixed up!
Great job and thanks for linking to Let's Dish!

You've created a beautiful, sophisticated tables cape. You found some amazing things at Good Will. Every time that I go to ours, it's absolutely hideous. Your town must have a better brand of donation contributors! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

I love to see how different tablescapers use the same pieces. So much fun and I adore animal prints, so I especially love this setting. Beautiful job and great photos!

Chubby Chieque said...

This is absolutely beautiful. I love all elements you use in this settings. The earthy tones and the natural elements make the whole table so warm and welcoming.

Great job, Lady.

Happy TS,

What a fun table! Each element just adds another dimension to the theme. Love that you and your sister do this together. Great job!

(((LOVE IT)))Every detail is perfect and I'm REALLY "In Love" with the WALL Illumination! The color on your wall with that gorgeous candlelight scone adds perfection to the finishing touch(((LOVE IT)))
Have a wonderful weekend,


What a fabulous and expectacular table!! I adore animal print, everything, specially your dishes and place mats. My daughter has place mats in animal print too and I love them. Everything along with the candles is just perfect for this great table, Elaine. Hugs,

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said... does look so pretty all lit up! And I can't believe so much of it was done from Goodwill. :) Wonderful!

This is such a great tablescape. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I have followed you back :)

Dianne said...

This is an exciting table. Makes me want to sit down and look at every detail. You are a great Goodwill shopper. Dianne

Sister Act. How fun. I think you should do this as often as you can. I enjoyed viewing you and your sisters tables using the animal print. I love animal print anything and have some leopard print in my decor. I thought it was particularly interesting that you both have the same Terra cotta colored rooms for your setting. I can tell you are truly sisters when you have the same paint colors in your homes. Ha
