As I am setting this table I am laughing and saying oh dear! This is so not me..............or is it?
I dress in bright colors but my home furnishings and everything else is more traditional.
Quiet. Not bold in color at all.......
I tend to like glitzy, pretty and soft colors on my tables. I always struggle when I have to set a different table.
I am struggling my way through this but decided I need a few bold colored accessories and two tall candlesticks that match!
I feel a day thrift day in the air!!!!!!! lol
My inspiration for this table was the blanket I found at the Thrift Store a few weeks ago.
Of course, Sweet Pea is supervising!
In fact, she is usually right behind me so that I am stepping on her!
I couldn't decide which salad plate I liked best so I used both of them.
The striped plate is "Set Sail" by DEMDACO. I use them almost everyday!
The green salad plate is "Home Essentials," Pisa Collection
The heart bowls are from Michael's a while back.
This is what the blue & gold one looks like...........this was taken as I was setting the table.
Like a picture was going to help me decide which plate looked better! lol
It is "Mesa Alegre" from Pier 1 imports.
Isn't that what setting tables is all about, FUN!!!!
If you can't have fun doing why do you do it!
Of course, my favorite drink since I have a pool and live in Texas is a frosty Margarita!!!
The tall blue glasses are at least 30 years old.
I bought them in Bradley's Department store in my home town.
The Margarita glasses are from Marshal's.
I did change my centerpiece as I was writing this post..........
I think I like the sunflowers much better!
Which one do you like? I find if you play around enough it does get better. I really like to take a few days to set a table. It always comes out much better, when I am using colors that are different or new to me.
Well there you have it, a Mexican kind of table set by a New Yorker at heart! I may never be a Texan but I do love the weather, food and people! Come visit Texas! Everything is bigger in Texas!
See you by the pool!
Thanks for visiting!
