Last month I went to a big church sale and I bought some old dishes with a yellow rose decal. They were probably a grandmother's Sunday dishes.
Today I used them for the first time.
My inspiration was this fabric.
I was not sure which of these two chargers I would use. After trying both with my 1950's aqua-rimmed Pyrex dishes, I chose the dark brown metal chargers. I knew my Hazel Atlas Capri Dot glasses would go nicely with the tablecloth. I added the rose decal dishes and a covered rose decal dish with small bowls for cut up fruit. Then I went outside and picked 3 tulips (I didn't have any roses or I would have used them) to add to a potted plant for a centerpiece. My breakfast table was complete in about 15 minutes.

This is a spin off blog from my main one where I showcase only the different tablescapes I do.
"Tablescaping" to me just means creatively setting a dinner table or arranging a side table. I especially like to do it in the summer, so I can incorporate my flowers. I collect both dishes and mid-century tablecloths. I have enough of each that I can have a lot of fun playing. I rarely set a table with all the same china, glassware, etc. I like to mix and match (there really is no fun involved in simply setting out an expensive matched set of "good" china, is there?) I love the challenge of designing a unique table with just a little cash and a lot of creativity.
