Today I thought I would share our little New Years Eve table. We had a very quiet evening. And the late dinner was mainly little appetizers and treats. But, I did set a table for Troy and I.
I started with a white thrifted tablecloth (bought years ago at a flea market). It has small silver threads running through it. And some thrifted black and white placemats.
I used simple stainless steel chargers that I bought last year from a vendor at the flea market. They had the original price tags from Bed, Bath and Beyond for $5.99 each. I paid $1.00 for both.
I then used black octagon plates that I bought at a yard sale this past summer. I saw the black plates under a stack of odds and ends plates on the table and asked the woman how much for the black plates. She said $1.00. I started taking out the black plates and she said, “No, take ALL of those dishes for $1.00”. So, I walked out with 15 dinner plates and 4 saucers for $1.00. Most of the other plates I really didn’t want so, I donated them.
Everyday silverware and simple white napkins with silver beaded napkin rings. This set was bought at TJ Maxx last year after Christmas. It was way after Christmas when I bought these. I think someone might have returned them so, they were clearanced very low and I got lucky!
Some of my centerpiece things:
Mercury glass apothecary jar~clearanced a few years ago at the Home Goods store. 2 crystal candlesticks~TJ Maxx free from sponsor gift card. Black and white ceramic orbs~free with Pier 1 coupon. 2 round mercury glass candleholders~The Christmas Tree Shops clearanced at .50 cents each. Larger mercury glass pillar holder~clearanced at Home Goods store. Thrifted coffee carafe. Glass chunks~Dollar Tree (years ago). Piece of silver mesh scarf ribbon~thrift store (years ago).
I hope you enjoyed it! Now, let’s see your thrifty tablescape!
