We took the job on Saturday and by Sunday our house was on the market! We have an open house this coming Sunday and are moving along with our things to do list. I am overwhelmed but happy! PRAISE GOD who is always sooo good!
With all that said.....
WELCOME it's Tablescape Thursday!!!!!!!!
Hosted by Susan from BNOTP. Thank you so much for Hosting!
A little background....
my neighbor, Shelly, knowing I do tablescapes and have only a few sets of dishes gave, Yes, GAVE me these pretty American Cafe dishes! Her house is very modern and me....Early Attic Late Cellar, so this was quite a challenge.This is very simple. I still am not 100% pleased...but until I can hunt for new things...it will have to do!
We are in my family room on my round oak table, looking outside towards our pond.
The red and gold vase is from Kirkland's. I should have taken a closer picture of the vase..it is very pretty! The gold charger is from Wegman's a grocery store here in Western New York.
The dishes say "SANGO Cafe Americana 98" on the back.
I used my everyday utensils...Paul Revere.
The glasses I bought at Tuesday morning. They have a gold rim and a cut
glass design. I love the red tablecloth..it picks up the red in the dishes.
This is a wine bottle that my cousin, Lela made for me. My daughter made them for her friends for Christmas. She used battery operated lights! I will share how to make this in another post.
I changed the centerpiece....I like this one better! I bought the hurricane candle at The Christmas Tree Shop, years ago. The red charger is from Hobby Lobby. The wine colored string of dazzle is from Vidler's Five & Dime in East Aurora, NY.
I wanted you to see how it would look at night so I closed the blinds. We will eat our dinner here tonight!
I decided since I do all these pretty tablescapes...we better use them!
