Last week we had beautiful Spring weather. This week, not so much. It has turned cold again. One of the things I was doing last week was switching out my dishes. Yes, I switch out dishes all the time! And the set I am about to show you is one of the sets I brought out of winter storage. I love this set. It is so pretty! I had planned on making a new tablescape with it but, it is just too cold outside to play. So, I thought I would revisit this thrifty tablescape from last year.
I will give you the low down on the cost of this table at the end of the post.
So, let’s check out the table.
Another yard sale find. I have several of these sectioned dishes. But, this is my first all white. I really like it and see myself using it a lot.
(Updated note: I totally broke this set last Fall! I dropped it and broke each dish except one. This is one of the reasons I am glad I buy most of my things so cheap!)
I swear, I get the oddest looks from my neighbors when I head outside to do up a table. I keep waiting to hear one of them yell over at me, “Hey Lady, you ever hear of paper plates?” Well, that was my simple pretty outdoor table. Aren’t these dishes just lovely? I was so excited to see them clearanced at the Christmas Tree Shops!
Okay, let’s break down the price:
Tablecloth (yard sale) = .25 cents
White sectioned dish (yard sale) = $1.00
Placemats (gift) = Free
Napkin Rings (gift) = Free
Vintage Napkins (flea market) = $1.00
Silverware (wedding gift) = Free
Glasses = $2.00
Square Plates (CTS) = $4.00
Bowls (CTS) = $4.00
Dipping Bowls (CTS) = $2.00
Flowers = Free
Total = $14.25
Yay! A beautiful table for a lunch outside for under $15.00. With new dishes no less! I love it. I spotted these dishes when they first hit the shelves right before Spring and just knew I wanted them. So, when they went clearanced, I snatched up what I could afford. This set also has large charger plates, serving dishes, mugs, creamer and sugar sets. I only got what you see on this table. I would love to have the rest of the set but, this was already a large splurge for me. I am thrilled with what I bought.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed you visit! Have a wonderful day!
