I love double posts! It's just like multi-tasking, which is pretty much what I do everyday. Thank you to Chandy@ What Now Tablescapes for hosting this week's Thrifty Thursday and to Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for another Tablescape Thursday. Please be sure to visit these lovely ladies to view their posts and see more participants.
Today's tablescape theme is a spring ladies brunch which was done mostly with vintage thrift shop, estate sale, and garage sale finds.
This was one of my most challenging posts because almost all the tableware is made of clear glass, which I found most difficult to photograph.
Now, I know you must have seen a lot of these glass luncheon plates at antique shops and thrift shops. They must have been very popular at one time, because they're everywhere. I have about 24 of these plates which I've picked up at an estate sale and thrift shops. I didn't pay more than $8 for all of them. They're cheaper than paper plates!
The lotus flower bowls and the quilt were Goodwill finds.
The napkin ring is made of very delicate capiz shell from the Philippines.
I hope you're able to see these next pictures okay. I have a number of these etched plates that I found during my thrift shop jaunts for roughly 50 cents each. This one is my favorite with the Victorian lady etching.
I got this white footed dish at a yard sale for $5. I know, it doesn't sound like much of a deal, but I've seen them at antique dealers for about $26. I'm not really sure what it is. It's shaped like a taco. I'm guessing it's a fruit bowl.
Last is my little cow creamer that I picked up from a discount home store for a couple of bucks.
Thanks for dropping by today! Be sure to check back in tomorrow for Foodie Friday when I'll have this tablescape plated for a delicious spring brunch. See you tomorrow!
