Finally I can Set a Table Outside!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited because I actually had a beautiful day and the time to gather up some pretty tableware and set the table outside! And I get to show you some of my latest thrifty finds! I am so excited!  Can you tell? LOL

TTS

I announced that I am going to start a once a month (first Saturday on each month)  Thrifty Tablescape Party! The first party will be June 4th and I can’t wait! So many of you are great thrifters and find awesome clearanced and 2nd hand tableware that I thought it would be fun to see what kind of tablescapes you can put together from thrift finds! As most of you know, about 95% off all my tablescapes are from thrifted finds. And this table is a good example!

So, let’s head outside to the patio!

I am using these vintage white with little blue rose dishes rimmed in silver. I got 4 dinner plates and 4 salad plates at the thrift store.

  9. Very pretty! I actually do like your old chippy centerpiece very much. I also really like your napkins and tablecloth too. We had our first meal outside just recently too, I love it! But, I didn't set the table, we just had subs and paper plates. LOL! I am going to have to get on the ball now. It's time!

  19. Hi Diann,

    This is such a pretty post! I really love your chippy tiered centerpiece (isn't Home Goods great?) and your napkins and flatware are just beautiful. We have a tulip magnolia tree in our front yard, but I have never tried using the cut blossoms. They really are beautiful. We're in the South so ours bloomed about a month ago and has now fully leafed out. Thanks for sharing your lovely outdoor tablescape. Thrifted finds are always fun, and blue and white is consistently one of my favorite color schemes.

    Hugs,

    Denise

  33. You certainly know how to set a beautiful table - and blue is my favorite color!
    The tree looks a bit like my Star Magnolia, but mine is white with skinnier petals. Yours is pretty in pink!
