Wednesday

Turn your brights on!

 It's been a while since I have done a tablescape. I'll be joining Kathleen's Let's Dish and Susan's Tablescape Thursday. Click on their names for lots more inspiration.

Several months ago I found this pretty flatware at Home Goods:
 The price was right!
 And look how pretty they are!

 I found these lime green plates at Dollar Tree a while back. Not bad for a dollar each, huh?


These bright yellow plates came from TJ Maxx this past year. (This photo shows the true colors better than the others.)

 You've seen the yellow polka dot place mats and the spring green tablecloth before, and they seem to blend nicely with the colors I'm using.


The centerpiece is a metal Mary Englebreit watering can filled with silk flowers
 

 and a cute little red bird. I found that cutie at Michael's a short time ago. 

Love it!

 
 All these nice colors came together pretty good and made a bright, cheery tablescape:

 The red napkins give a great pop!

 I bought all of these items at different times, having no particular plans for any of them.

 It is so much fun to "shop" the house and find things that go together!


I didn't want to go out and purchase more things, so I was delighted when it all came together!


 I hope you like this cheery tablescape!

Hi Karherine, I DO love your cheery table! Everything seems to blend together so well. The red napkins really do add such a pop of color. Love those Dollar Tree plates! You'll have fun with the flatware to mix and match with other choices.

I couldn't agree more about shopping the house. Technically, I have three houses to shop. too. I love the bright, festive feeling that this table has, and the flatware was the perfect inspiration for it all. The flatware was my favorite part, but a very close second is the centerpiece.

And it's great to see a table from you! I need to get on the stick.

I'm crazy about sprinkler cans so its always fun to see how others use them. I was at TJ Maxx the other day looking for some fume new flatware but found nothing of the kind. I'd have snapped yours right up!

Hey there, Katherine! The colorful flatware was a great jumping off point for your tablescape!!! I have seen that flatware and admired it! One of the greatest things about it is that you probably wouldn't (as you said and did) have to go out and buy things to go with it because it has enough colors to be able to create something terrific with what you already have! The colorful watering can is absolutely perfect!!!!!

Say hi to Joe, and have a terrific weekend!

The Mary E. centerpiece caught my eye immediately, but I do love the flatware!

I love your happy table, Katherine! Your utensils were the perfect inspiration. I love all the colors on them. I can see them in a lot of tablescapes! The watering can centerpiece is so cute too! Not to mention your sweet red birdie! Great job!
