Revisit 2012 Spring Tablescape

Hi everyone!

This is a tablescape from last Spring.
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.

Pretty Floral Lunch 001-tileI started with this pink and white checked round tablecloth. I picked it up at a yard sale recently. Some one made it. They added the little lace around the edges.

Pretty Floral Lunch 003Pretty Floral Lunch 004Another 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!)

Pretty Floral Lunch 005Pretty Floral Lunch 006I have had these beautiful placemats for years and years. My mom bought the set for me for Christmas one year.

Pretty Floral Lunch 007Pretty Floral Lunch 009Love these pretty dishes! The set came with the two different colors.

Pretty Floral Lunch 010Add the little matching dipping dishes.

Pretty Floral Lunch 013Pretty Floral Lunch 014My mom had also bought the matching ceramic napkin rings to go with the placemats. They are so pretty. I also used my vintage pink linen napkins.

I keep waiting to hear one of them yell over at me, “Hey Lady, you ever hear of paper plates?”Pretty Floral Lunch 029 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!
