Vintage Tablescape

I was motivated by these gorgeous plates that I l-o-ve for so many reasons...chiefly...their price tag of $1 each!!Blog 139
They are gorgeous standing alone, but I've never had quite the right base for these fabulous vintage salad plates that I picked up years ago at an auction for $10 for the set of 6... Blog 141Blog 140
I have always wanted to pull in these vintage glasses with these plates...

Let the Games Begin!
  Blog 143I had extra plates, so I wanted to use those as elevated serving dishes...I flipped some plain bowls upside down and made a little wreath to go around the base with a pink and white berry garland. Blog 144
Then I shopped the house for  these little bowls that I thought I was going to collect after I picked up the vintage plates...Blog 145 Blog 149
The carrots are for some-bunny who might drop by this weekend…
 Blog 147
The tablecloth is double sided and I picked it up at Goodwill.  I can't really remember where I got the quilted piece in the middle, but I liked the tie of frilly and vintage it provided on the scene.
Under each glass is a vintage crochet coaster (and I'm actually selling this set of 8 in my etsy store).
In each glass is a little stir stick...each one is different so it helps keep glasses straight when mingling...
The napkins are vintage linen with a bit of fancy work cut out on each.

  I often don't set the end of our long table to keep the setting more intimate and to allow space for taller decor that would otherwise block conversation across the table...Blog 150

I kind of like the way this little bird is peeking out to drop off a hyacinth and remind us of spring's arrival!!!

Thank you for the inspiring post. I bought a set of new white "good dishes" with the plan to add another colour on top but I got discouraged looking for just the right set.
You've inspired to try out my local flea markets!

Thanks for your kind comments everyone!!

I have to admit Linda...a little bit of the lazies late at night stopped me from telling more about what I have and from where...

The white plates I picked up at TJMaxx...they are simply stamped with a B inside a fleur de lis...

The transfer plates are stamped Taylor, Smith, Taylor and numbered on the back...does anyone know about these?

Amy said...

I'm behind...but this is gorgeous! Beats the white plates and dollar tree bunny napkins my family got this year!
