I have a confession to make. I am a grown woman and I still like the occasional freezer pop. Yes, freezer pops. Those artificially colored and flavored treats we all ate as kids and probably fed to our kids, too. What can I say? It's hot here in Florida and they are really refreshing. I'm sure I look really sophisticated eating one. Those bright color tubes of frozen ice inspired this week's tablescape (along with a very inexpensive tablecloth from Marshall's!).
The polka dot appetizer plate came in a set of 4 at Marshall's. I think appetizer plates are a budget conscious tablescaper's best friends. They are inexpensive and come in lots of cute designs and colors. The next layer is from my everyday white dishes from Burlington Coat Factory. I think paper plates would have cost more! The dinner plate is stoneware from Dollar Tree. But my best buy is the rattan and wooden chargers.
I think you can see why. Sometimes Goodwill really delivers. There were five of them, of course, because GW always seems to have odd numbers of things! The napkins are from Ross and I made the napkin rings from felt flowers on wire (Michael's 80% off bin) and some plain white rings I had.
The clear acrylic flatware is from Ross. It's works with any casual setting.
I assembled the cloche from pieces from GW. The ceramic vase is also a GW purchase and the faux (fake!) flowers are from Dollar Tree and Walmart. The turquoise glass piece is from Ross (to be honest, I have no idea what it is, it has a plug on the bottom though).
I left the ties on the candles to match the brown in the chargers. The glass marbles are from Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree has sand, too. Why pay more at craft stores?
The goblets are from Marshall's and the pretty wine glasses were a wedding gift.
Even though this seems like a "daytime" table I still like to use candles and light them when it starts to get dark. Trying hard to capture that "blue hour".
No, that isn't smoke you see, just me playing with effects on Picnik!
This was a fun table to put together with most items coming from Dollar Tree and GW. Did I get you in the mood for a freezer pop?
Thank you for stopping by and viewing my tablescape for this week. I would love for you to leave me a comment or even better, become a follower.
