I apologize for not visiting much of you yesterday, but though I tried, I was just too exhausted from our Easter celebration.
For today's Three or More Tuesday, I decided to give many of you an exclusive opportunity (a VIP showing if you will... LOL) of my Bordallo Pinheiro Cabbage collection pieces and other Easter goodies before they get boxed up to make room for the next set of holidays. They will be stored away in our storage far from our home, but in an accessible manner as I am always thinking of ways to incorporate all of my pieces into a tablescape. I found all of them between last February and March.
This beautiful serving dish is deep enough to hold pastas or a mountain of mashed potatoes! I got her from Marshall's for 45% off.
I don't know why the pictures are on its end, but the top one is my three-bowl condiment or candy dish from Marshall's for also 45% off.
This platter is from Ross for 50% off. DH gave me that "What Now?" look and convinced me to get this one over the egg platter in the Bunny Bordallo collection. (In my best new Texan accent) "Y'all seen a peek at my first St. Pat's Day tablescape." Isn't she beautiful?Here they are, all together for one great shot to bid you adieu for now or until I use them for another tablescape, lol!
Here are my three "mini bunny-in-the flower" candy bowls. I had to go to three different Ross stores for each as each Ross only had one! I also got each one for 50% off.
And of course, the greens of the bunch! I found "Mama St. Pat's /Easter Bunny" at Ross for 50% off and the mushrooms at Tuesday morning for 60% off.
TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" loves these memes, totally beefs up her idea bank!) For specialty pieces such as themed and colored Bordallo pieces or fine china that have a decided theme on it, mix and match them according to between seasons. For example, In March, we have St. Pat's, in April, we have Easter, in May, we have Mother's Day and Cinco de Mayo. Find a way to use these specialty plates according to the season, not the holiday. That way, your dishes are being used more than once and you have once again, achieved a unique tablescape.
Tam, thank you very much for hosting another great meme today. I'm off to join all of you now to see what you've got lined up for my eyes to feast on today!
