Hi all!

I hope you had a great weekend and a great week so far!   We had a great weekend!  Very relaxing and fun!

On today's Tablescape Tuesday, I'm going to be taking another little break from Dining room tables and doing a tea table I set up.   This was not used in a ladies tea, but I wanted to set it up for an idea for a future tea, perhaps.   The inspiration for this tablescape is my "WRAPPING PAPER" table was some wrapping paper from Dollar Tree that I thought would look really cool on a table! 

I'm calling this tablescape...TEA FOR THREE!

I used my long round white tablecloth (pretty standard since this is actually a patio table, and I don't wan't that "outdoor" look to show...AND this is the only long round tablecloth I own...haha!

On top of that, the wrapping paper runner!

The Centerpiece was a tall glass candleholder with a white candle, a silver candleholder with a white candle wrapped with some of that same wrapping paper, and a square glass vase from the Dollar store with blue and white flowers, and turquoise glass pieces.

The plate stack is as follows - Turquoise charger from Michaels, White dinner plate and silver salad plate from Dollar Tree, blue rimmed dessert plate that I've had since I got married, (a LONG time ago..haha) and a silver saucer and teacup from Ross!  The cobalt blue champagne glasses were from Dollar Tree, as were the smaller water glasses.

In the middle is also a cute white teapot and tea set from Ross. 

I thought this turned out pretty cute.  I hate to say I forgot to light the candles before I took the picture...but, oh well. 

I hope you enjoyed this Tablescape Tuesday!  Thanks again for stopping by and I hope to see you soon!

TABLESCAPE TUESDAY - Peonies and Plaid

Hi all!

Welcome to another TABLESCAPE TUESDAY!!!   Sorry I was M.I.A. for a few weeks.  We were on a family vacation and had a wonderful time, but not much time for blogging! 

Today I wanted to share with you a tablescape that I did for a tea a while back with some great friends!  We had such a great time of fellowship and prayer and I am so thankful for such wonderful friends as these!  

I wanted to make the setting special for these special ladies, so this is what I came up with.

I found this awesome wrapping paper at Homegoods not too long ago.  I thought this was so pretty and loved these colors all together.  I also have a bit of a thing for plaid and I just thought this would look great on a tablescape as a table runner!

Under the table runner is my long white round tablecloth that I found on   On top of that is a sheer pink curtain that I got from Goodwill!   It worked great to give the table a little femininity and color.  

For the centerpiece, I used my tall white pillar candleholder from Ikea with a white candle which is wrapped with a "ribbon" of the same wrapping paper I used for the table runner.  Next to that are some pink peonies in a hot pink vase with some hot pink small ornaments to hold them in place.

Here's a plate breakdown for you, in case you're wanting the low-down!  lol

First...the charger is a pretty ruffled 14" plate from Old Time Pottery.

On top of that is actually a ruffled melamine dinner plate in hot pink.

On top of that is a pink salad plate from Goodwill, and a white saucer with a pretty weaved pattern that kind of reminds me of plaid..

Then I topped off the ensemble with a lime green bowl from the dollar store.   The white silverware was from Goodwill...a great find!   The napkin rings are from ebay.

The green stemmed glasses are Pier 1, but I got them at a garage sale for $1 each!  That was a great bargain in my book!  =D  The smaller water glasses were also $1 but I got those at the Dollar store!  =)  I also used my little Pier 1 petal bowls as tealight holders.

The breakfast was wonderful and the ladies seemed to like the the food and the setting...but I think most of all, we all enjoyed sharing our lives with eachother and praying for eachother!

Thanks so much for joining me for another
Tablescape Tuesday!  Hope to see you again soon!!!
