Tablescape Thursday

Tablescape Thursday, time to get out the dishes and create a pretty tablescape! Thanks to Susan for hosting so we can enjoy this fun hobby! Go here for lots more inspiration!

I had no idea what I would do for a tablescape today! I started looking and found these little plates I've had for years, but have never used them, they were still in the box, a friend gave them to me.
Each plate has different colored lilies.

Even though I had five colors, plus the white to work with I couldn't decide what the main color scheme would be, and couldn't decide which tablecloth to use. I placed a plate on top of one of the white plates from Dollar Tree, then tried to decide on a tablecloth.

It needed something else, so I looked for a charger, or place mat. I bought these round yellow polka dot placemats at TJ Maxx a few months ago. I was surprised that they look remarkably good with these plates, don't you think so?
The "crystal" is from Dollar Tree. The flatware from Ross.

Next the centerpiece gave me a problem, but finally decided on this vase full of bright yellow daffodils!
The little figurine is one I bought when I was a young girl, about ten! I collected figurines even then!

View from the top:
Recently I have been organizing my stash of decorating goodies I use for tablescapes and tabletops. I found this box of candleholders that were bought back in the 70s, look at the price!
I only had two white tapers, so I decided to use them without candles. Each one is a different color, seems to be a pattern with all the items in this tablescape today!



The napkin rings are ceramic with 3-D flowers and the ribbons on each are each a different color.









A place for you
Or do you prefer one of the other colors?

I, of course, prefer the yellow!
I hope you enjoyed this Spring floral tablescape!

Have a happy day!

God Bless.

Katherine
