Thrifty Tablescape Party

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the March Thrifty Tablescape party! Can you believe it, March already! Woohoo, that means Spring is on it’s way!

A couple of week’s ago the Princess asked if the next tablescape I do could be one we sit down and eat at. Sometimes we use them for dinner that night and sometimes they are just “for fun” tablescapes. But, I promised the next one I did we could sit down and have dinner at it.

So, tonight’s tablescape is set for the three of us with the Princess in mind. And since it is March, a St. Patrick’s day table was in order!

I usually set a different size setting for the Princess and I just went ahead and did that on this table so y’all can see real life here.

I like to mix and match (Really Diann ? LOL) and I also think it is fun to mix real dishes with paper products and/or real napkins with paper. there are just so many fun designs out there for different paper products. So, don’t forget to have some fun with all the inexpensive paper products for your table.



IMG_0814All the paper products and silly St. Paddy’s Day decorations I am using on today’s table came from the dollar store.


When the Princess saw the table she was so excited and said, “Wowee Mama! We are having a Patrick party!” Yup, that is why I go overboard on the fun and silly little things on a table like this. That excitement is worth it!


You can see that the Princess’s setting is a smaller version of ours. She has a salad plate for her dinner plate.



I used a woven round white placemat from CTS (.99 cents each). the green chargers I got at Walmart after Christmas clearance (.50 cents each). The white Gibson plates were free to me. The package of dessert size paper plates ($1.00) and the little white ramekins were a wedding gift to us.


Set of 8 paper cups from the dollar store. The “on the rocks” green glasses from the dollar store. And the green stemmed glasses were 6 for $1.00 at a thrift store years ago.



The gold silverware came from an auction about a year ago. It is not a complete set but, there was enough settings that were complete in the wood box that I bid $5.00 for it and won.


White Johnson Bros ironstone saucer (set of 4 for $1.00 at an antique store), cut glass bowl (set of 4 at a yard sale for .50 cents) and the fun green with white shamrock plastic shot glasses were bought at the dollar store (6 in a package). I just thought they would be fun to hold tealights in.







Note to self: When blowing out the candles, remember the table is scattered with confetti! Yes, I will be vacuuming up bits of St. Patrick’s Day for awhile!

So, there you have it, my thrifty St. Patrick’s Day tablescape. Now it’s your turn to show your fun thrifty tablescape!
