Tablescape Thursday

It's time for another Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Be sure to visit, you'll be inspired by all the creative and beautiful tables.

The tablescape I'm sharing today was put together with a current find at Marshalls. I found these salad plates for $1.99 each. I loved the colors - especially the pinks and greens. I have promised myself that if I love it and can find a set of 6, it's a done deal (well, and the price has to be right too!)

I thought the little plates would look pretty with a few vintage pieces that I have from my great aunt's collection. It's not a perfect match, but I think the colors blend nicely.

The plates were layered. A charger from Hobby Lobby, white Lenox dinner plate, and the new salad plates. The silverware was a purchase from eBay. The stemware was a wedding present - Lenox. I had only four striped napkins, so I used two solid green napkins for the end settings. It worked!

Thrown into the mixture was a small green depression glass sherbet dish. This was given to me by my mother.

For the main centerpieces, I used a ceramic "boot" and an anniversary clock. I wanted a little bit of height, so I raised the clock with two books. They just happen to be two volumes of "Who's Who".

The finials are part of a set purchased at Stein Mart several years ago.

To close this post, I wanted to include a great shot of a candle holder on my buffet. It was taken by my son, who enjoys photography. Thanks Jake!
