Welcome to my second entry in Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.
Last week, I tried my hand at a tablescape using items I had purchased recently from Kohl's and Marshall's. ( If you missed last week's post, click here to view.) If you will notice, there are still a few items over on the left side of the table that I did not use: red checked napkins and solid red placemats. Since I am away from the icy lake that you see through my windows, I have no fresh flowers for that lovely red glass vase, and I must work with the pictures I already have uploaded on my laptop. So, here goes with another option.
Off to the pantry again for the off-white plate (Lenox~Butler's Pantry), of which I only have one. It is large enough to serve as a charger for my lunch setting, so I will just set that on the new solid red placemat. Add the checked napkin, that goes so well with the pillows on my chairs and loveseat. I bought the placemats and napkins as a set of 4 for $7.99 at Marshall's. They are all cotton and I'm really pleased with the fabric, so I purchased 2 sets. How can you go wrong at $1 per piece?
A green glass salad plate purchased years ago from Pottery Barn.
And the beautiful bowl that matches the mug (222 5th ~ Belize)from Marshall's @ $3.99 each.
I wonder if one of my red goblets (Pottery Barn, several years ago) would look better than the green one from The Christmas Tree Shoppe?
I think I prefer the green one ~ How about you?
OK, Back to my rocking chair to wait for spring and plan my menu.
Thanks for visiting. I love reading your comments.
