Today I have a tablescape for you that is wintery and icy. Different shades of blues, white and silver, tarnished to different degrees. The inspiration for this table came from the least expensive items on the table, these Martha Stewart silver placemats with blue and white snowflakes. I bought these in November at a thrift store for .20 cents each. They still had the tags on them.
I added the winter stemware (.25 cents each at a thrift store) and the beautiful blue tumblers (I also have the matching stemware glasses. I got them clearanced at the Christmas Tree Shops). The pretty blue and white snowflake napkins were a Christmas Tree Shops purchase from last year at the after Christmas clearance for 75% off at CTS ( set of 4).
I decided to just tie the flatware with some pretty silver ribbon.
I used an old tarnished silver dish filled with tumbled glass, they look like beautiful chunks of broken ice. I set on top of a recent thrifted aluminum tray. I really love the design of this little tray. I added one of my vintage etched glass sorbet glasses with a silver votive inside.
Isn’t the stem on this sorbet glass just stunning? So pretty!! Love the way the cobalt glass reflects on the silver placemat. I used this pretty silver dish with some silver meshing inside to hold this cut glass wine bottle bucket and an old blue/green canning jar with a silver votive. I just bought this pretty glass wine bottle bucket last week at a thrift store for .80 cents. It has a nice silver handle. One of my all time favorite thrift finds (years ago) is this blue leaf glass dish. I added a very tarnished creamer and sugar with votive candles inside and filled the dish with more tumbled glass.
Glimmer and shimmer
Well, I hope you enjoyed my Wintery Tablescape today. With the exception of the mercury glass votive holders (bought at Target last Christmas for .99 cents each) and my flatware, everything on this table was thrifted 2nd hand of at clearanced prices. It doesn’t have to cost a lot to create something beautiful!
I hope you all have a wonderful day! And please check out these fun blog parties!
