Tablescape Thursday ~ Apple Blossoms!

If it’s Wednesday that means it’s time to get ready for Thursday and the world of Tablescapes. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is the hostess with the mostess for this event. Click on over to see a lovely array of styles, shapes, and colors!

This week I brought my Apple Blossoms inside as the inspiration for my table.

When I was at Goodwill earlier this week I found these great apple and apple blossom napkins, 10 for $4.99. I don’t think they’ve been used at all. The napkin rings are part of an apple with the stem and leaves.

I only have 4 of the apple blossom dessert plates so I set the table for 4. The plates are “Blossom Time”, Made in Staffordshire, England with a 22KT. Gold Decoration. I bought the goblets from Goodwill last year and they have a gold/yellow tint to them. The pink depression glass items are from Dear’s Great, great aunt.

I started with one of the napkins on the center of the table but thought again and took it off.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my Apple Blossom Table.

Psalm 17:8 ~ Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings.

Proverbs 7:2 ~ Keep my commands and you will live;
guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.

Proverbs 25:11 ~ A word aptly spoken
is like apples of gold in settings of silver.

Enjoy your day!

Tablescape Thursday ~ Rose Colored Garden

When I’m at my home in Washington I usually change the tablecloth on our only dining table every couple weeks. Because our stay here is winding down and we have no more big events I took out a couple leaves from the table and found a shorter tablecloth. Having my new inspiration for Tablescape Thursday it was time to search high and low for what to add to the tablecloth.

 

I started with the hydrangea in one of my depression glass containers and candlesticks.

 

Some fun layering of plates. The smaller salad/dessert plate is Royal Swan, Blossomtime, Staffordshire, England. The larger floral edged plate is Nikko tableware.

 

The tea cups and saucers are Churchill. The gold tassel napkin rings were Target Christmas clearance. The tablecloth and napkins are from Goodwill.

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.

Thrifty Treasures!

Visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality to see some amazing Thrify Treasures! Here are some of mine…

 

I’m back in Washington State and spent some time visiting some Goodwill stores in the Puget Sound area this last week. The platter and 3 cups and saucers cost me $12.99 for all 7 pieces. It is the Melody Pattern by Franciscan Staffordshire, England. The other cup and saucer is Myott Finlandia Stafforshire England and it cost me $2.99. Pink tags were half price this past Thursday-Sunday so the sweet detailed pitcher cost me $1.98.

 

I got 8 of these salad/dessert plates for $6.99. They are Floral Garden ~ Tomson Pottery.

Looking forward to seeing these new treasures on a tablescape in the future. Now I’m off to see what treasures you found!

Blessings on your new week…
