It's Thursday...Tablescape & Vintage Thingie!

Thursday, February 11, 2010
I'm sharing at both Tablescape Thursday @ BNOTP and Coloradolady's Vintage Thingie Thursday. Thank you ladies for hosting these lovely events each week!

I wanted to share my RED tablescape from a dinner party for 8 last week. Although it isn’t very Valentine-ish, it is my favorite….RED. The tablecloth came from K-mart. I spied it on their site when someone was showing off some napkin rings from there on their blog (sorry, I don’t remember what blog that was), the dishes are a mix of 2 different sets from TJMaxx manufactured by Queen. I bought a set for 8 of each but really like the look of mixing them together. The flatware is my everyday stuff. The big tall glasses came from Dollar Tree. The votives are from my catering goodies. The vintage goodies in the middle of the table (oil lamp, Bakelite topped S&P’s and nesting hens) are all from various sources…mostly junking. The lamp was my Great-Grandmother Jessie Eavenson’s. I’ll post my menu for Foodie Friday!
