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!
