I know I really should
be doing some sort of summer
this one has been rattling around in my
imagination for too long
and it was timeto un-clutter the brain!
I wanted the wood of the
dining table to be shown.
I found the checked placemats
at Burlington Coat Factory, on sale,
at the first of the year.
I then layered my favorite Ikea
oversized plates, black dinner plates
from The Dollar Tree
square salad bowls
that again, I've had forever.
The black flatware is from Family Dollar.
A full set for $3.50!
The black goblets are a recent score
from The Dollar Tree too.
The checked napkins were a thrift store find.
4 for $1.00!
The napkin rings were clearanced
at Home Goods at $3.50 for all four.
For the centerpiece
I used some glass tiles
left by the previous homeowner.
Next came 3 clear vases from Ikea
filled with Christmas fluff from my stash
and black mums from Michael's.
I wrapped some white ribbon around each
vase followed by thin black ribbon.
I purchased the candlesticks
at Goodwill for $1.00 each
several years ago.
Spray painted black
with white candles,
they are perfect for this table!
Now that this table is
I think I may have
some room available in my old noggin now
to put together a summer table...
before it's no longer summer!
I always share my tablescapes with
