Welcome to the 32nd Tablescape Thursday!
Here in north Georgia, the leaves are beginning to pop out on many of the smaller trees. But the really big ones…like those in my backyard, are a little slower to rise from their long winter’s nap and don their spring-green wardrobe. Leaves or no leaves, the warmer temps have me craving dinner out on the porch.
Oh, look! One of the birds has flown over and perched right on our napkins! 🙂 I don’t often have an opportunity to use these gold napkins, but they worked perfectly with the gold trim around the edge of the salad plates.
The faux bamboo flatware was a great find at Big Lots last year. I’m always amazed at how often I use it in tablescapes. I found it on sale for $12, for 20 pieces (four, 5-pc place settings.) They had another box, but it was missing the large serving spoon and meat fork. Since I already had those pieces in the first set, I didn’t hesitate to buy it…and, they let me have it for only $8. So eight, 5-pc place settings for around $20…Yea, Big Lots! 🙂
Have you ever seen more beautiful plates? These lovely plates were a gift from my dear friend, Jan….you may remember her as jjlmnaz on RMS.
The dinner plate china is from Home Goods…I didn’t see a pattern name. I purchased this china just a few weeks ago, so it’s probably still in some of the stores. You’ll be seeing it again in some upcoming tablescapes. 🙂
These hand-painted glasses came from Old Time Pottery a few months ago. I was thrilled to find these at only $10 for a set of 4. At that price, I bought a dozen…who could resist at only 2.50 a stem! 🙂
