Is it spring yet? No? Oh well.
The temptation to put together a spring like table is strong but I’ll do my best to keep it seasonal for a little while longer. Since blue is a cooler hue it’s very fitting for the weather we’re experiencing right now. These plates caught my eye in the thrift store but I had some reservations about them. At .49 each I don’t know why. When I found out that everything in the store was half off I grabbed four of them. There were at least six in the pile, why oh why oh why didn’t I get all of them! That was three weeks ago. I went back a few days ago and lo and behold they were still there. Now I have six, yay me!!
This is one of those tables where luckily there were other items in my stash that I could use with them. My first instinct was to use a stark white tablecloth, but I wasn’t completely sold on that idea or the baby blue one that was my second choice. The tablescape angels must have had me in their radar when I went into Joann’s last week looking for fabric. The piece I’m using for my tablecloth is perfect. Two yards for $9.00 and it’s silk no less!!!
Remember for my last table I was looking for black chargers and couldn’t find them anywhere? Found tons of them at Hobby Lobby a couple of days ago but not the white ones I wanted for this table. Those tablescape angles must be playing tricks on me. No white ones in sight, so I used silver. I placed a plain white bowl on the plates so that most of the pattern could be seen. Faux mother of pearl flatware, blue napkins and silver beaded napkin rings round out the stack.
Most of the time I only use the blue stemware during the summer. Don’t ask me why. The cut of the glass in the water glass and goblet tied in perfectly with the cloth and add a bit of sparkle.
A couple of my friends gifted me with the white triple bowl server and the lions head dipping cups.
The small bowl of flowers is sitting on a pillar holder that was tucked away on the back of the clearance shelf at TJ Maxx. I do believe someone placed it there so no one would find it while they thought about buying it. Who among us has not done that? More shimmer and shine comes from the pillar and votive holders.
Even though blue is a cool color I think the shades I’ve used are seasonless and looking at this table gives me the warm fuzzies. Our expected high today is a whopping 13°, hurray for the warm fuzzies!!
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
