Happy TABLESCAPE TUESDAY!!!
I hope you are having a great week so far! For today's Tablescape Tuesday, I'd like to share the tablescape for our latest "Sunday Family Dinner"! This was a special one because we had some special guests...My father and his girlfriend came to join us for dinner. They had just gotten back from a cruise on a Royal Caribbean ship, so I decided to name this tablescape "THE ROYAL TREATMENT" in honor of having them as our honored guests, and the fact that they were on a Royal Caribbean cruise!
For this, I wanted my main colors to be Purple and Gold (of course with a touch of black and white.
I decided to use my black tablecloths, and some new purple and gold ribbon I got from Walmart on clearance after Christmas! I really like how it turned out! Next time I will use some double-sided tape to hold the ribbon down. It did kind of pop up a little here and there, most likely due to the wires in the ribbon, and I had to smooth it back down several times.
You might recognize the gold pillar candle bases from my New Years Eve Tablescape here. The candleholders on top of the gold pillar bases were part of my awesome Big Lots clearance finds after the Holidays. $2.50 for two of them! To see that post, you can click here.
I used my gold chargers, my dollar store white plates and bowls, and for the dessert/salad plate, I actually used some purple plastic plates from the Dollar store. I have not found a set of purple plates that I like yet, so these had to do in a pinch. I really need to buy some new flatware. I'd love to get a pretty matching silver set and a pretty matching gold set. Of course, I'm looking for ECONOMICAL, yet lovely! haha!
The purple wine glasses were a great goodwill find..and I had just enough... 6 of them!
Here is the table all lit up at night (we had more of a luncheon than a dinner, so these pics were from the night before)
The Centerpiece is a gold basket with a tall candleholder I found at Ross. Also in the basket, I added some smaller purple sparkly candle holders...also part of that Big Lots Bargain craze, along with some glass tealight holders, some gold tinsel garland and a gold sparkle leafy thing that was on the gold pillar candle bases, but looked a little too Christmas-y for keeping on them.
Here is the "royal spread"! I will be posting the recipe for the Crock Pot Lasagna in tomorrow's "Whadda We Eatin' Wednesday". It was REALLY delicious and super easy...my favorite combination!!!
Here's the buffet table all lit up at night! Those tall candles toward the back are from the bases of those cupcake domes I found at Ross last week as part of my "Ross Shopping Haul". Everything else on this buffet table is from thrift stores or the Dollar Tree.
