Welcome to the 34th Tablescape Thursday!
It is sooo pretty out today…why don’t we have dinner out on the porch?
We’ll just keep our table simple with a little daisy arrangement and a few sweet bunnies.
I’m a little excited today because I have some new china to share in this tablescape and it’s has two of my fave colors in it: pink and green. I’ve always loved hot pink, and paired with green, it really feels like spring!
This happy china (salad plates and chargers) came from Marshalls a couple of weeks ago. The price was way too good to pass up, salads were only $1.99 each and the chargers were $2.99 each. The chargers are amazingly heavy and very substantial.
The white dinner plate and bowl are from “Gollum’s china.” Yep, that’s what we are all calling it here in Blogland. Several of us had to rush off to Big Lots and buy this pretty white china when Michael at the blog, Designs by Gollum told us about her amazing purchase. It’s made by Gibson and it comes with six, 6-piece place settings (includes a dinner plate, salad plate, cereal bowl, fruit bowl and cup/saucer) a platter, a large serving bowl, salt and pepper shakers and 6 white, ceramic napkin rings…all for $35! If you have a basic simple white china like this one, you can create so many different table settings by just changing out the salad plate.
Love the chargers…they really say springtime!
A little change of pace this week…no napkin rings for this tablescape. I came across these cute, clip-on, pink and green flowers a couple of months ago in Hobby Lobby. This was several weeks before I found the flowery chargers and salad plates. They were only around $2 for a package of 6. I used them to clip the edge of the napkin to the plate and they really look like they were made to go with the chargers. This table setting would work well for Easter, too.
I love layering and the white china contrast so nicely with the floral layers in this tablescape. I’m convinced, if you can only afford one set of china, make it white. The possibilities are endless.
You may remember these Napoleon Bee glasses by La Rochere from one of my Easter tablescapes. I think you’ll be seeing a lot of these this summer. They are fast becoming my favorite glasses for everyday use. You can just see one of the cute bees on the glass in this pic.

Looking forward to all the beautiful table settings for this Tablescape Thursday!
