Wednesday

Tablescape Thursday

Time for our Tablescape Thursday fun day! Thanks for Susan for hosting so we can enjoy playing with our dishes! Go here for lots more inspiration!
Today's tablescape theme is Time for Tea! The inspiration for this tablescape started with these pretty chargers. I bought these chargers at Ross last Christmas for $1.99 each.

I really like the rich mahogany color with the golden roses embossed around the edges.
I shopped the house to find something for the centerpiece. These clocks came from Hobby Lobby, the small one I just found yesterday at 80% off!

I have a real weakness for the cute clocks available these days and sometimes give in when they are marked way down on sale!
I used the pretty butterscotch yellow plates and cups from T.J. Maxx
and the yellow handled flatware my husband bought for me:

This pretty scarf and
deep red roses complete the centerpiece.

Time for Tea tablescape:
The tablecloth is tone on tone yellow with a large check design. I have been looking for a yellow tablecloth and found this one last fall. This is the first time I've used it.

I used two napkins, a yellow and a burgundy doubled.
Faux dried roses are used as napkin rings. I use these roses in a bouquet in our master bedroom, and didn't want to cut them apart.


This tablescape matches the walls in our dining room very well



View from the top:

I hope you enjoyed my Time for Tea tablescape!

A special place for you!

The other guests will arrive soon!

This is an encore presentation, some of you may recognize this tablescape from last year. I'm reposting it since I'm not feeling well today and didn't get a new tablescape done.

I'm also linking to The Style Sisters Centerpiece Wednesday. Go here for more centerpiece inspiration.

Have a great day, and take time for tea!
God Bless.

What a steal on the chargers...they are GORGEOUS! I had to take a double take because they looked a little like etched or cut glass! I love the color scheme and love the clocks on the table! How original!

Hi Katherine,
Beautiful job with your tablescape, those chargers are very pretty and unusual, I really like them just so elegant. I too have a thing for clocks and love yours, and getting one with 80% off makes it even better. Burgundy and cream are absolutely beautiful together. Thank you for sharing.

You do have a flair for this hobby, Katherine! I would have knocked you over to get to those GORGEOUS chargers! LOL They are going to work for you in so many different tablescapes. Oh, the possibilities!

Very creative use of those wonderful clocks, too. I wish I had some unusual ones around here. Mine are blah.

Oh, I miss having a Ross close! I don't even know where the closest one is now that we've moved. Too far, at any rate. Gorgeous setting though. Love the clocks, and the yellow is so pretty. Thanks for sharing!

Those yellow plates and handles on the silverware are so charming. They almost read as a neutral. And that crocheted looking scarf. Just a beautiful tablescape.
