Welcome to Tablescape Thursday with our hostess Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch. Join her and the rest of the participants for tables galore! I am also joining Leigh for Thrifty Thursday please check our her beautiful blog. A couple things I learned this past week. Don't try to wash your braided rugs in the washing machine, don't argue with a sick teenager- it's like tangling with a skunk and don't try to finish your tablescape on the day you spend time in the emergency room with previously mentioned sick teenager and then open a case with a new family, (I am an outreach worker and I work with families who children have been removed from the home and it can be very emotionally draining) enough said. So without any further excuses I give you my Harvest Table.
Tom Turkey is centerstage! He was purchased at T.J. Maxx and I loved him because of his creamy white color. My plates are Royal Stafford ( Hay Ride) also from T.J. Maxx. I found these last winter for only $3 a plate and I have not been able to find the bowls yet but I will keep a lookin. I made the napkins and runner last week-end and what I was so happy about was that the runner has a very similar print as the plates.
I used red placemats from the dollar tree for a dash of color, and the tablecloth is white battenberg lace from K-Mart marked down to $5. YOOHOO! It had been $27 but for $5 it was mine. The napkin ring holders were also a thrift store find and they are so cute! There's a chicken, pig, rabbit and duck!
A closer look at the edge. I love that lacy look!
The little dessert plates are a lenox pattern and they were brand new and only $1.99 for all four. I love the lacey delicate look.
A closer look of my centerpiece! Red chunky candles, Mr. Turkey on a silver platter (also a thrift store find) and some Autumn decor to round it out.
Another view. Thanks for coming by and I am starting to really get excited about the upcoming holidays~! But then I kind of get that anxious feeling about all the things that need to get done. Happy Thursday, Cindy
