It is time for Tablescape Thursday, at Between Naps On The Porch. Thanks for hosting my favorite meme, Susan.
My inspiration this week came from my brother-in-law, twin to my husband...he challenged me to a table of plastic only. Of course, I took him up on it.
Before I had thought much about a theme, I found yellow Tupperware plates at the thrift store for 25¢...what to go with them, what to go with them. Oh, oh, I know...a Jayhawk table, as brother-in-law Wade is a graduate of the University of Kansas, better known in these parts, as KU. The school masot, a Jayhawk, is bright blue and red with a little yellow. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!
The placesetting is very simple, consisting of a yellow dinner, blue soup/salad bowl, red tumbler and yellow plastic flatware.
I really wanted to make a tablecloth but the material just wasn't wide enough and not being a seamstress, I had no idea how to go about piecing the material together to make a round one, so I made fringed napkins, instead.
Candle lit table.
My daughter graciously lent me the center scarf, which is just a large handkerchief; the "vase" which is a half gallon drink cooler filled with faux sunflowers...gotta have them, they are Kansas' state flower. She also lent me the tiny snow globe and the little Jayhawk figure. Thanks, Erin!
