Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco 1The vibrant colors of Cinco de Mayo brighten this tablescape.  It is my first attempt at Cinco de Mayo and I like how it came out.

Cinco 2

The table settings include bright napkins and plates of different colors to stick with the theme of a fiesta party.

Cinco 3

This whimsical little pinata was so adorable that I had to include it on the table!

Cinco 5

You can’t have a Cinco de Mayo table without a sombrero!  Since the stores were all sold out, I had to make my own!



Fall Tablescape

This sneak peak gives the colors that this tablescape will have to bring us into Fall.


Here is an overview of the table and I love how the fall colors pop!


Here is the place setting with the embroidered napkins which add an elegant touch!


These fun fall water glasses came from the Dollar Store and complete the table setting so well!


Love this close up of the flowers!  They are so beautiful!


Memorial Day

Memorial Day


A bird’s eye view of our patriotic table! Love all of the red, white and blue!


Another view of the full table.  The colors just pop on this white tablecloth which I sewed to fit the table.


The little flags add a nice patriotic touch to the place setting, and the plates remind of picnics out at a park near our house which was a Revolutionary War Park commemorating the soldiers who fought for our freedom


The little ball centerpiece is made of wood shavings and is a cute piece of art to complete the table!

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day 2020

IMG_0648Happy Mother’s Day to my mom!  This table is in honor of her.  She always loved an elegant table.  I went with traditional pink and lace with antique plates and dessert cups.


There is nothing like fresh flowers to make a tablescape beautiful!  These were given to me on Mother’s Day from a special girl whom we have grown to love quite a lot!


The light coming in through the window really made the dishes look bright!


Here is a close up of the plate setting.  The chargers fit with the green depression glass plates and pink depression glass berry bowl and dessert cup.  These were my mother’s and grandmother’s and so they make this Mother’s Day tablescape even better!


The sherbet glasses are depression glass blush pink and the berry bowl is Anchor Hocking with a diamond optic design in the bottom.  The green plates are also Anchor Hocking and the beaded plates are Candlewick.  I loved mixing and matching the dishes for this beautiful look!

Easter, Spring


Happy Easter everyone!

IMG_0510I have been wanting to do a purple tablescape for awhile and Easter seemed the perfect time to try it!  The purple candies add a nice touch in a green carnival glass bowl.


Love the green accents with the purple color!


These beautiful purple flowers were just a dollar and made the table really look like spring even though it was cold and rainy outside!


This picture shows the flaws on this tablescape – which can happen sometimes!  My one green candle is a little bent, but I loved the spring color it brought to the table!  My tablecloth ended up quite wrinkled, but we can call it vintage, right?  Hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday even though we all couldn’t  be together!


Spring has Sprung


This bright and cheery table (minus the spoon askew) reminds me that even though we had snow yesterday, Spring is coming!  The eggs remind of robin’s eggs which will soon hatch, and Easter eggs which is right around the corner!


Love the little touches in this tablescape of flower table scatter and butterflies on the glasses, and, of course, the daisies!  They brighten the whole room!


A close up of the daisies.  I love fresh flowers on a table and these are the finishing touch to this tablescape!


Another view with the sun shining in on the table.  We actually do occasionally have sun around here.  It’s just few and far between, so on the days we have it, I open the shades and let it pour in!

St. Patrick's Day

St Patrick’s Day


Love the greens in this table with the white daisies as an accent!


The plates on top are called Pastoral by Taylor, Smith and Taylor.  Love the farming scenes on them!


The daisies with their green/yellow centers are the perfect compliment to the greens on the table!  And they stayed fresh for so long!


Here is a bird’s eye view of the table – very simple, but very pretty!

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Tablescape

Valentines Day Tablescape

The roses in the center of this tablescape are finishing touch that makes this beautiful tablescape!


Vday Tablescape 3

Here is another centerpiece I love for Valentines Day!  The red candles can set a beautiful atmosphere for dinner.


Vday Tablescape 1

Here is another look at the table with candles as a centerpiece.  But I also love the roses in the napkin rings which add a nice touch.

Vday Tablescape 2

These beautiful red posey plates were my grandmother’s and I love that I can use them in this setting! Although some of the gold edging has worn away, they still look beautiful! They came from Strawbridge & Clothier, a popular Philadelphia department store.  My Philly friends will remember it!
