It time to join Cuisine Kathleen for her second week of Let's Dish! You can enlarge any picture by clicking on it.
The other day I found a gorgeous tablecloth, $3.99, that is the inspiration for this week's very simple tablescape. It reminded me of spring, lots of greens, reds, pinks, blues and a little yellow.
I wasn't sure what dishes I would be using until I saw these dinner plates at Goodwill today...I want to thank a lady named Estelle for making them back in 1964. Again, I have found someone's ceramic project to showcase on my table! Being Senior Discount day, the cost was 74¢ per plate. They have blue, pink, red, green, purple and yellow on a creamy background. When I first saw them out of the corner of my eye, I thought they were Blue Ridge Pottery when I saw the large flowers and fruits in bold colors!
The background of the dishes is a deep cream, the only chargers I had that would go well with them are these octagonal ones.
I wanted the tablecloth and plates to be the stars, therefore I elected to use no other dishes.
The glassware is some you have seen before...they match the tablecloth so well.
The flatware is Oneida Afterglow.
The napkins are from Savers $1.99 for 4 and the fun bee napkin rings are from Pier 1 Imports, $3.95 each.
I have something to confess...this is actually a Thanksgiving tablecloth, complete with turkeys! I have never seen a tablecloth in these spring colors depict Thanksgiving. It is huge so I am going to see if a local seamstress can cut the turkeys off without ruining the whole thing. If it can't be done, I'll use it as I am today!
Thank you for visiting today, I really appreciate your comments and try to do the same for you.
