One of the first things I go look at when I hit up the thrift stores are the dishes, glasses, and table decor.
I'm always looking for fun items for a tablescape somewhere down the line. I've also found that by doing so, I've come across some great bargains.
This is my latest thrift store hall. I think it is the start to a great Patriotic tablescape.
I found some great plates that are white with blue trim. Toss in some red and you are ready to sing God Bless America!
I got four of these plates for 50 cents each! I also got this little blue star bowl for 25 cents but I really think I want to get red stars or if I get red salad plates then a white star would be nice.
I could use the blue star for other items on the table.
I also got five little flags for 50 cents for the whole group. That's only 10 cents each. Not bad!
Then the four gold star napkin rings were $2.00 or 50 cents each. I'm thinking I may spray paint these. I think white stars with some pretty red and white striped napkins would be nice and look more like a flag.
What do you think? Spray paint them or leave them gold?
So, for, $4.75 I got enough for four place settings. I can't wait to put it all together. I'm thinking Memorial Day is coming up, so maybe then?
While this isn't really a tablescape, I'm still linking up to Between Naps on the Porch. I think it's a good reminder for us all to hit up those thrift stores as there are some great items for putting together pretty yet inexpensive tablescapes.
