Tablescape Thursday ~ Checkers Anyone?

Time for table setting fun. Please click over and visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see lots of great tables around the world.

 

I’ve set the table early in anticipation of my brother and SIL’s visit on Saturday. We will be celebrating my brother’s birthday.

 

I’ve decided on Slow Cooker Pork Shoulder for sandwiches. We’ll have a salad alongside. For dessert we’ll have a choice between both my brother’s favorites…carrot cake or cheesecake.

 

The martini glasses are Target clearance and the cut glass are hand me downs from my aunt.

 

The napkins are Martha Stewart K-mart clearance. The napkin rings are from Pier 1 and were a gift from my kids.

 

The dishes are from the thrift store and are Royal Stafford. The flatware is from Target clearance. The chargers are from Tjmaxx.

The candle holders are from a garage sale.

 

Hope you are all having a good week. I’ve been staying close to home out of the storms that are hitting Southern California one after another…

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Tablescape Thursday ~ Aqua & Red

Welcome to another Tablescape Thursday. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is the hostess for this weekly event. Click on over to see lots of pretty tables around Bloggyworld.

Since most of my tables are very thrifty I’m adding this post to Thrifty Thursday with Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville.

I had my new thrift store aqua blue tablecloth on the table for my scape last week I decided to change it up and throw in some red.

 

The old roosters are from Dear’s mother. The red martini glasses are from Target clearance. I enjoy a martini from time to time but I also like to use these glasses for serving dessert. The red patterned plates are from tj maxx and the top salad/dessert plates (Warren Kimble) are from Goodwill as is the candle holder with red dangling crystals.

 

 

 

The napkins are from a thrift store on Main St. in Ventura and the napkin rings are, too. The napkin rings are pear shaped.
