Third Tablescape~Ladybugs

It's time once again for Tablescape Thursday. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is our wonderful host. Please visit her blog for more lovely tablescapes.



My table this week has gone to the bugs, ladybugs! They are my favorite. My house is decorated with them right now.



Here are the ladybug place mats I ordered from Snappy Turtle. They are so cute and bright!My flatware is my everyday from Oneida and was given to us at our wedding. I do not remember the name of the pattern. And after seventeen years it's looking a little beat.Here are our everyday glasses, a wedding gift.

My plates are from Walmart. I purchased them right after the holidays. The box was marked $5 for a set of four. They had dinner plates, salad plates and bowls. When I got the the cashier they were marked down to $2.50 a box! So I purchased 3 of each and now have a service for 12.I was searching for ladybug plates and couldn't find any that were just ladybugs. I settled for these bug bowls from Hobby Lobby. Here is the bee.And the butterfly.And my favorite the ladybug. The set include one of each and a tray to serve them on. I picked up two sets to have 6 bowls and used my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby which made them under $20 each.The centerpiece container also came from Hobby Lobby. I am not crazy about the flowers. I went to my local supermarket and they had nothing that I thought would match or go with my tablescape this week so ended up going to Michael's and picking up some faux flowers. They don't exactly match, oh well!Two cute ladybug tea light holders from Hobby Lobby.



With the lights off and no flash.

Our ladybug table!And I always forget to put my glasses on the table when I take a picture of the whole view. I realized after I had blown out the candles and was emptying the dishwasher!

Just perfect for our fast approaching summer months! I like "bugs" (the glass kind) too! Love the colors!

Great and fun job!

Hi Cynthia! This is adorable. I love the ladybug theme, it is so cute. We do not have a Hobby Lobby here in Calif. I'm so bummed about that especially when I see such cute things like your tablescape. What a wonderful job you did with this post. Have a blessed day!

$2.50 a box for those plates is a wonderful lottery winning at the check out counter. I love the placemats and it all comes together and is so HAPPY! Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend.
