TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" is just so thrilled to have these ideas!) Throw out all the rules of table setting and just have fun with it! Set the table however you want with the pieces you want to use! As long as it's usable, find a way to incorporate it and enjoy your wild and funky tablescape!
I didn't have time to come up with a theme or set of dishes that caught my fancy so I grabbed the first set of items accessible!
"A Single Lovely Moment"
My IVV Italian green glass plate and bowl
The bowl, I got for $2.00; originally $7
The bottoms are ridged and just plain beautiful.
See the platter turned charger? That's a Bordallo "Pineapple"!
Also from TM for only $6.00! Originally $20.00
The placemat, from Kohl's for 59 cents; originally $5.99
The napkin, Kohl's for 39 cents; originally $3.99
and the flatware, my Farberware "Cameo" since 2000
the glass, a 25 cent (original $1.50) find at Fry's in AZ back in 2005!
See how lovely my table is? I so love it!
Here's another angle of my "table for one".
I wanted to show off the greens with the subtle yellow from the candle, napkin and glaze on the pot. See the band of the placemat? That is deep purple complimenting the mauves on the pot glaze as well. An aerial view; how do you like it?
Here's a closer look at the glass ridged plate
Bordallo "Pineapple" and Tabletop Galleries "Merida Multi" placemat. The placemat is upside down, the right side is very festive and fun!
Here's the napkin.
I tucked it in like a pocket and folded up the napkin to hug the plate.
I'll be using these napkins for my 9-year old's birthday party.
Even this striped "pregnant" bromeliad is a steal at $2.24!
