This week's tablescape has a few things you have seen before and a few that you haven't. Pay close attention, you might recognize something! I started with my pale blue tablecloth from Macy's. I know you've seen it recently, but my dish combination worked so well with it, I used it again.
I'm not usually comfortable mixing busy patterns, but I think this works...what do you think? I love a soft blue and black color combination. The Royal Stafford transferware bowls are from TJ Maxx. I layered them on Living Quarters salad plates, the pattern is Blue Toile. I also used the matching mugs on this table.
The black dinner plates are from Wal-Mart, $1.75 each!
I added TJ Maxx charcoal gray flatware, crystal and
black stemware and delicate white napkins.
I really wanted this table to be a little more formal, so I added some sparkle and silver. The centerpiece is a black and silver tray that we got for a wedding gift. The sterling candlesticks were also a wedding gift. The silver orbs are actually from the holidays, but I have used them at other times during the year. I found them at Crate and Barrel last year. I wove a black sequined scarf through the table setting just to make the blue tablecloth look a little more formal.
This sterling cream and sugar came home
with me from my dad's last month.
Here is a peek at the mug that matches the dessert/salad plates.
If there are mugs on the table, there better be a coffee server.
This one was a found treasure in my in-laws garage!
Of course the table looks best by candlelight.
I also want to show you what came in the mail to me this week. I won this beautiful outdoor thermometer from Lynn @ House and Garden Boutique. Lynn has a beautiful blog that I just recently discovered. Please stop in to say hello to her.
Please remember to sign up for my giveway...
does anything in the picture look familiar.
I couldn't buy something so pretty for myself
and not buy another set to give away, could I?
I'm linking today with Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday. Susan is a wonderful hostess.
Her blog is worth a visit, you will keep going back for more!
