I grabbed my old antique Ball jar, filled it with water ( I know you are laughing because I used FAKE or lets be fancy FAUX flowers – hey I  got them at Michaels for $2.50..)

The ever popular Target birds - $4.99. My china is Mikasa and I got it at Linen and Things when they were going out of business .

As I stated in an earlier post…I realize I don’t own much in table linens..so I stole from my quilting stash for the “napkins” Please don’t look closely as the silverware (I didn’t polish….) This was a quick setting. I had to work quick as our dining room table is the only “eating” table in the house..remember Small House….anyway my hubby says…”oh no, you’re doing it again” that is setting the table pretty and not including any food….well maybe one day I will !

Thanks for looking ! Hugs ~ Kammy

Hi Kammy...

What a beautifully set table! I love blue and white together! I also love your white Mikasa dishes...I'm looking for some white dishes like that...so nice that you got a deal on them! Okay my friend...I think your flowers are beautiful...faux or not! They make the perfect centerpiece for your tablescape!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

A blue and white theme is always a winner!

Your table has a warm, cozy, country feel to it! It is wonderful!

It looks very pretty and inviting.The last tablescape I participated in had no napkins at all! We use paper ones for ourselves, and only being in the house for four months, I forgot where I put them! It's lovely Kammy!

Chandy said...

Kammy, you are a hoot! Love the table and its colors. I don't mind faux flora. You can definitely do more for longer, lol!

Just doing a quick round of visits before I bury my head into my final essays again...

Hi Kammy,
Thank you for your kind comment.

Chargers are so ridiculously priced. I had no choice but to buy them when I saw they were $2.99, you are right, they are usually $9 or higher. I was even more surprised that they had eight of them.

Isn't Tablescape Thursday tons of fun?

What a treat to find your blog. I have loved several posts that I've read. Wonder sense of humor. Love the tablescape. I'm just now trying to find some linens that I like and can afford too, plus I have a small home also and storage is a huge problem. I look forward to more of your posts. Hugs, Marty
