Tablescape Thursday

It's Thursday and it's time for Tablescape Thursdays hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I am having so much fun decorating my table. Be sure and visit Susan and see all the lovely tables for this week.


My simple table for the week.Very casual!Two very "tweet" friends will be joining us.Centerpiece are two small potted silk mums from Walmart. They were $5.00 eachThe dinner plates are from Marshall's. Love the blues, yellows and creams!My first set of Spode plates. I was shocked at how inexpensive they were.A small cream salad plate nestled in the center. The small plates are from Walmart after Christmas clearance.The flatware is from our wedding. Napkins are from Walmart. Tablecloth is from Ross.

Ready for our weeknight meal.

Wow, what a bargain those dishes were. The colors in the rims are gorgeous and the napkin is so autumn.
