It's time for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch!
I'm going a little outside of the box with this table, as it's not traditional spring colors, but I centered it around the custom made (for someone else) valance that I found at the Humane Society thrift store. I couldn't pass it up for $5 when I had nothing on my breakfast nook window. I don't think it will be a permanent fixture as I can't see it fitting in year round, but I like it for now. It's dramatic black background with spring flowers in toile pots seems perfect for right now.
With this table, I decided to use my favorite dishes that I've had for a few years. The dinner plates and salt/pepper shakers and mugs are Tracy Porter for Target "Octavia Hill" pattern.
Aren't they pretty?
They are sitting atop some great Pier One chargers that I bought off Ebay for $6/4. The chargers are a black leather like material with gold etchings. (Sorry for the bad photo, I couldn't seem to get a good one of the chargers.)
The salad plates are Better Homes and Garden from Walmart.
You've seen the green goblets before, in my first tablescape. They came from Target and I love them.
The napkins and napkin rings are from Kohl's.
I wanted to keep this table simple, so I used a green Goodwill vase with some clippings from my shrubs and yard as the centerpiece.
You'll see a few of my Georgia plates hanging on the wall next to one of the things I've had the longest in my house, a lamp that I've had so long that I don't even remember where I bought it.
I've got a plant stand sitting next to the lamp with my favorite Pewter pitcher and a new glass jar from GW. Underneath, a green houseplant that I've had for a while sitting on a white plate.
We only need one fork and a butter knife, remember I'm keeping it simple! Flatware from Belk's.
Tablecloth is Fieldstone Luxury from Target, bottom one from GW.
I hope that you like my simple Tablescape and my great window treatment!
