Tablescape Thursday is one of my favorite days! Thanks to Susan for hosting, go here for
Today's tablescape is "The Initial Tablescape," using the initial "A" from our last name!
I saw these initial plates at Hobby Lobby but waited until they went on sale for 50% off before buying them. I had to go to two different HLs to get all of them. I also bought a "K" and a "J" since I could only get four "A's"
I found the monogrammed "A" napkins at Home Goods a few months ago. I was so happy to find the A as they are pretty popular and sometimes hard to find.
The centerpiece came together easily. I had bought two of these little metal votive holders at Dollar Tree, then went back and bought two more because I knew I would someday use them together as a centerpiece. Actually I thought I bought five, but couldn't find the fifth one!
I had planned to use red votives in them with this tablescape, but my husband went to Walmart today and came back with a dozen red roses for me! (He usually brings yellow roses.) I wish I had taken a picture before I cut the long stems off.
I had to find small containers to put water in for the fresh roses, so I used these little black and white polka dot tea cups! Perfect!
I just remembered I forgot to put out some crystal stemware! Dang! I just loaded all the pictures and I'm not going to do them again!
I hope you like my initial tablescape!
Have a happy day!
