What, Another Tureen...
Another week and month have flown by...it is time for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Thanks for hosting this inspirational meme week after week, Susan.
You can enlarge any of the pictures just by clicking on them.
My inspiration this week was some red alstromeria that came in a lovely bouquet and a Goodwill tureen with a little red in the pattern. The flowers were starting to fade so I took out all the ones that still looked good, you may see more of them in a future tablescape, who knows.
This rather large tureen with matching ladle was $2.99 and is from the Home Collection at JCPenney. I really had no need for another tureen but at that price who wouldn't have put it in their cart?
I started with a white Damask tablecloth, red napkins, then added an over-sized black dinner plate which I am using as a charger plate, white dinner plate, black salad plate topped with a red soup bowl; all are solid color. The flatware is Oneida Sterling, Afterglow.
I was the lucky recipient of a CSN giveaway that Linda of A la Carte had back in the fall, if you have never visited her blog, you really should...so I used it to get these beautiful red water/iced tea/lemonade stems. It was free shipping, too! Thanks, again, Linda and CSN.
