First I want to thank Bill, Affordable Accoutrements for his help on my last tablescape. I had ask if anyone knew the name of my crystal that is 50 years old. Bill worked his magic and found the name of it! I had even forgotten what make the crystal is, as well as the name of it! If you would like to see this crystal click here.
Inspiration for this tablescape is from these placemats and napkins. A good friend of mine made them for me and gave them to me for a Christmas gift. Aren't they beautiful!
I didn't think I had things to do a tablescape with them, but when I started putting it together, it was easy! I was surprised I didn't have to buy a thing to make this pretty tablescape! I used things around the house I already had!
The dinner plates are from Dollar Tree. The salad plates were less than $6, from Ross.
The green glasses and sherbets are what we used back in the 70s!
The centerpiece is a basket I haven't been using, it is filled with faux ivy. I don't have any cardinal birds because I've given all of them to my daughter who has cardinals in her Hunter Green guest bathroom. I used this pretty little red glittered bird left over from Christmas.
The black handled flatware is from Ross and cost only $3.99!
It all started with this, a set of four:
This is the opposite side of the placemats, I like this side as well!I think it makes a very nice winter tablescape with the wood grain showing on the table.
Would you like to sit here?
Or you may choose your place!

I hope you enjoyed seeing the cardinal tablescape. Thanks to my friend, Jan, for providing the pretty placemats and napkins!
Thanks to Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday so we can play with our dishes!
