Tablescape Thursday


Time for Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Click on her name for more inspiration. Thanks for hosting, Susan!
Above is the inspiration for my tablescape today. I found these Vera napkins on sale recently.
I would have never paid $6.99 each for them, but they were half priced, then an extra 15% off on Seniors Day.
They each are signed with her name and little lady bug. I like her big splashy painting style!

This is another simple, inexpensive tablescape that was going to be easy, but I did run into some difficulty!
I didn't get started on it until after 2 p.m., therefore the sun and lighting wasn't as good.
The dark greens don't show up as true. I wanted to use these green chargers (from Target) but they show up much darker than they are.

I tried using the white lace tablecloth (used last week) but it was a little blah. The green one is better (in real life!)

The green retro glasses we actually used daily back in the 70s!
The flatware is from Ross last year.

The plates are from Dollar Tree several years ago.

The centerpiece:
I had a pretty crystal bowl I had planned to use, but it was on the highest shelf in the kitchen cabinets, and I've been given strict orders not to climb onto high things (something I've always done!) I had to use this little cake plate with a smaller dish on it.

Faux holly and berries to match the Vera napkins:




I hope you enjoyed this tablescape with the Vera holly napkins!

Enjoy your Christmas preparations!

God Bless.

I love your holly jolly table, Katherine! It is so beautiful. The napkins are wonderful. I have those glasses in blue, clear and amber but haven't been lucky enough to find the coveted green at any thrift stores. I love them for lemonade. Are your charger plates a dark green or is it my imagination?
