FLOWERS EVERYWHERE TABLESCAPE


It's time for another Tablescape Thursday that is hosted by Beyond Naps on the Porch. I love Thursdays so I can go visit and see every ones great tablescapes and pick up hints and ideas that I can use.



Seeing all the wild flowers on my hike was my inspiration for my tablescape today. Flowers, flowers everywhere!


I even got to use my bee napkin ring holders that I got not to long ago. After all, where there are flowers, there must be bees.


I found these great red Poppy plates awhile ago at Ross. They were super cheep as they were on clearance so I couldn't pass them up.


I started with the tablecloth and napkins I got at Kohl's when they were having their 50% off sale. I loved all the bright colors of the different flowers and knew someday I would use it for a floral tablescape.


For the center piece I used a milk glass ice bucket that I was thrilled when I found it at a thrift store a long time ago. I've never seen one before and still have yet to see another one like it.

I put some red geraniums in there and thought it was perfect for this table scape.


The red charger plates came from K-Mart and I've used them before. The red flatware came from Target. They have great prices on flatware. This set of four was only $9.99. It comes in other colors too.

The glasses are from Macy's. I got them free. Well, free to me. I had gone to Laughlin several months ago and entered a drawing for Macy's gift card. I actually won!

The little lady bug dish was a clearance item from Kohl's.


Oh, I also used a white bird as part of the center piece. I got him as a gift a few years back. Normally, in the Spring/Summer months he is found in my living room.


Of course my little white bird salt and pepper shakers were used. So was a pretty red basket/bowl I found at Ross or TJ Maxx. I can't remember.

I think this is a very cheerful tablescape. Bright colorful flowers screams spring to me! Now if only my garden was this pretty...

Such a wonderful tablescape - the lovely bright red makes everything just seem to pop. It's happy and fun and it makes me want to sit right down and join you for lunch?
I also love your bee napkin rings. I have always liked the industrious little bee as a decorative item, They make me smile.
