By 9AM today, we're on our way to the airport and onto Phoenix... But I wanted to share with you one more thrifty tablescape!
Yesterday, I hosted a Post-Mother's Day Brunch but out of the original five other ladies I invited last week, four said yes, then by 9AM, only one was able to join me. Truly, a mother's job is never done... I did have a great time with my next door neighbor and friend, Annette, so it was all worth it!
"I Love Me Some Herbs!"
Walmart "Herb Garden" Kitchen Towel
When I found these kitchen towel multi-set (1 mitt, 2 hotpot, 2 dish towel, 3 kitchen towels) at Walmart a few months back, I truly didn't know what to do with the dish towels as I don't normally use them. Then I got the idea to throw a Pre-Mother's Day Brunch on May 5th that got postponed to Tuesday morning, the 12th, now Post-Mother's Day Brunch. I was having a hard time coming up with a tablescape idea for a wonderful group of women, though most of them didn't make it.
I used only the dinner plates as it is a casual brunch and the seagrass round placemats were used as chargers. I needed another brown element to bring out the browns on the design.
He may be small, but he is quite dense! Loved him at first sight. (So much so that I gave up a very cute 3-piece Easter dinnerware placesettings for 6! Now that's love, right?)
First there were to be 6 of us, then down to 4, hence the final tablescape look, but by 9AM, only two of us gathered... I used white mums to bring the white and green up and keep the eyes on the focal point.
