Welcome to the 207th Tablescape Thursday!
I have a fun table setting to share this week. I ran into the dollar store to look at their Halloween goodies and while there I spotted a collection that immediately sparked an idea for a bridal shower tablescape. I get e-mails from time-to-time from folks asking for ideas for bridal showers.
If you will be giving a bridal shower sometime soon and you’re looking for a fun idea for a table centerpiece, this centerpiece was super easy and very affordable. I’ll do a post sometime soon with details about how it’s assembled. In the meantime, you’ll find plenty of close-up pics in this post to make your own.
Does the table runner look a little familiar?
Remember this tablescape from January 2009? Breakfast in a French Cafe .
I used the placemats from that table setting to create a “runner” for this week’s tablescape.
Currently, Dollar Tree has a whole collection of red and white Betty Crocker cooking utensils and accessories in stock. I grouped them all together in a colander I already had, although you could buy a large white one for just $1.
I used two different kitchen gadgets for napkin rings. I alternated them around the table. This place setting has measuring spoons for the napkin ring. Flatware is available here: Gourmet Settings Treble Clef.
This place setting has measuring cups as the napkin ring. The little ring that holds them all together came in real handy. After the party, the guests could take these home, or they could just add them to the other goodies for the bride.
Paper confetti around the bottom of the colander added a festive feel to the table.
I placed everything atop this Dept. 56 cake stand. You may remember it from these past tablescapes:
You’re Invited to an Un-birthday Party…Alice in Wonderland Style
A Tartan Christmas Table Setting
Here are a few close-up pics of this fun centerpiece. Since each piece was only $1, the cost to create the centerpiece was around $20. Once the bridal shower is over, the bride has a fun shower gift to take home. This would also be an affordable gift to put together to take to a shower, if you happened to be invited to one.
Two bunches of white daisies and yellow mums completed the centerpiece.
Do you like the fancy vases?
Measuring cups worked great as “vases” for this fun table.
I love themed table settings; they are just so much fun to create! I could do a themed tablescape every day of the week and never get tired of them.
