Thursday's Tablescape


Welcome to Tablescape Thursday. Hosted by the lovely Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Susan's participants keep steadily growing and growing and growing and it's so much fun! Susan's tablescapes are always so very beautiful so please stop by her blog to browse.


My tablescape started with this bowl. I'd been shopping around after Christmas and had become quite fond of Ross department store. So while in there, I spotted this bowl. It was so beautiful to me that I just had to have it.


Then I spotted the sugar bowl and creamer. Wow! The bowl was only 6.99 and I was thrilled to find that the sugar bowl and creamer were only 3.49 each. I later found another set (the sugar bowl and creamer) (different day) so now I have two sets like the one above.


Just two weeks ago I was browsing at Ross and stumble upon four cups that match. Well they were 3.99 each but I thought 12.00 is not bad when I have other things to go with it.


While shopping in Marshall's right after Christmas I found this. I had purchased some glasses that mimicked this shape so I had to have it. It was only 6.99. Then I found another one at T.J. Maxx for the exact same price so now I have two.


I coupled it with the bowl and added a little greenery and I think it's turned out to be a very nice centerpiece.


OH MY GOSH! Just yesterday I found these pieces. They are different though. The first pieces that I found were stoneware and these are China. The bowls and pitchers were 8.99 each but the sugar dish and cream were 3.49 each. If you want to know why I bought them all, I will have to say just GREEDY! LOL!!


This picture shows the difference. The one on the left if dressier than the one on the right.


When I found my first pieces, I didn't have a clue as to what type of dishes I would use but, I remembered that I'd seen these red plates in The Dollar Store. I think they work just fine.


The napkins are just paper napkins by Vanity Fair, and the flatware is from Marshall's. I got it at 60% off when they had a moving sale.


I found this coffee pot at TJ Maxx for 19.99, not exactly a steal but, I've seen them other places for a lot more.



This is just a better picture to show off the pitcher. I really love all of these pieces.

Thank you all for stopping by this week to see my tablescape, it was so much fun as always. I look forward to stopping by to see yours and share in your creativity. Thanks again to Susan for hosting all of this fun! Deb

I love the dishes! So pretty. I've never been to a Ross, but I've heard of them. I don't think we have any, near our neck of the woods.

Very creatively clever, putting the hurricane in the bowl. Gorgeous!!

I love your new dishes! They are very pretty! How clever to pair them with the red dishes-your whole table looks very elegant. I love what you did with the bowl and how you made that into a centerpiece. Everything turned out great!
