Susan at Between Naps on the Porch host the most incredible Tablescape Thursdays. I have been drooling over the ladies incredible designs and finally decided to participate. I have always loved dishes and have a different set to use every month. Slowly I have been adding more sets and designs. I am learning to mix things up and not be so matchy matchy. The ladies that share their tablescapes have helped me see things in a different light and to try new things.
As I mentioned earlier I have the dishes but that is about it. I started looking through drawers, closets and boxes looking for flatware, linens and glassware and its sad to say I have very little or almost none except what I use for the main holidays. Because of this I have been on a shopping spree for items for the table. My family thinks I am crazy and wonders how long this will last!So please stay and have a look at my weeknight table. I have packed up most of the Easter items but a few bunnies keep hopping out of the boxes. I absolutely love this tablecloth and would use it everyday if I could. It has a border on both sides of rabbits in a beautiful garden and flowers sprinkled all over the middle.The centerpiece is very simple here. A milk glass vase filled with flowers from the grocery store. These flowers are very hardy and have been here for almost two weeks! I found this rabbit at Hobby Lobby in the after Easter sale marked down to 66% off and he just jumped right into my basket.
On the other side of the flowers are two rabbits having fun. These rabbits were given to my when I was young. They were holding Easter eggs but they have been gobbled up!My dishes are plastic and purchased from Avon many years ago. They have a raised bubble edge. They came in four colors but only three worked with my tablecloth.The napkins are new. I ran out to Walmart and purchased white cloth napkins. We usually have paper napkins but they would not do for this photo shot. The flatware was a wedding gift and its our everyday. My sweet boy set out the utensils.Oops, I just noticed that there are no glasses on the table. They are are over near the refrigerator waiting to be filled!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I appreciate your comments about my tablescape.
