Tablescape Thursday

tablescape Thanks for joining us for our third Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to visit our good friend Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for links to all of the other tablescapes this week.

Again, I would like to thank one of our dealers, Patricia (VON), for pulling together this awesome table. She started with a basic wooden table with 6 chairs and then "shopped" the booths and pulled together treasures from all over the store. Here's what she created:

ts3-1 As you can see, this is a most casual setting, working off shades of blues and green with a pop of white.
Table and 4 chairs: $199 or with 6 chairs: $269 (JO)

The inspiration for this setting came from an old stand-by, Ocean Breeze by Pfaltzgraff.

This was then topped by an old unmarked plate featuring blue daisies.ts3-5White scalloped bowls and soda glasses on vintage hankies complete the place setting.ts3-4

Pfaltzgraff Ocean Breeze Dinner Plates: $3.95 ea (GRE)
Vintage Blue Daisy Plates: $9.99 ea (PHL)
White Scalloped Bowls (part of set): $14 / 22 pc set (VON)
Soda Glasses: $3.95 ea (CRIS)
Vintage Hankies (used as napkins): $1.99 ea (JCCA)

You know from last week’s post that Patricia leans toward creating a centerpiece montage as opposed to just a single point of interest. She didn’t disappoint this week, either. Mixing all types of nature (beach, birds, and flowers) there is as much to satisfy the eyes as there will be food to satisfy the body! And, guess what she is using for the table runner…ts3-3 Silk Daisies in Glass Vase: $12.95 (B)
Starfish on Stand: $7.99 (TONY)
”Friends” Wooden Sign: $15 (BJS)
Bird Nest “Hope, Peace, Joy”: $5.95 (K9)
Wooden Bird on Stand: $10 (BEL)
Vase with Blue Hydrangeas: Sale $4! (MLP)
6” Sea Shell: $4 (SHEL)
10” Sea Shell: $7 (SHEL)
Green Bunny Dish w/Lid in Metal Caddy: $4.95 (B)

To add a little height (and whimsy) she took a mounted shell and placed a vintage hat on top!ts3-2 Vintage Green Hat: $9.95 (ALLI)
Shell with Stand (used as a hat stand): $6 (TONY)

And did you guess the table runner?
Floral Window Valance: $11.95 (GRE)

  1. Again the tablescape is just gorgeous. Such lovely pieces and so well put together. I especially love the centerpiece vignette. Very creative. Hugs, Marty

  2. Oh, Most Classy Flea! This is a lovely table! Love all of the dishes and how they look together! The centerpiece vignette is marvelous! I've found myself enlarging your photos to see a little more closely! Now that little lidded green bunny bowl is calling my name. Can you hear it? :)
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  3. I love these kinds of stores where you can find lots of things that you can pull together to make a great tablescape. Great job!

  4. Patricia did a great job! I especially love the hat up on the stand...beautiful, whisical table! :-) Susan

  5. Love the small plate with the blue daisy. The best stuff is always unmarked!

  6. Oh this is a fabulous job of combining dishes, linens and glassware to make a very pleasing setting.. I like it...

  7. This is lovely, but I think that dining room table might be offended at being called a "basic wooden table" :)

  8. Good job on this great looking table! Love the valance idea for a runner!

  9. What a lovely table! I'm taking away some great ideas!

  10. What a great idea to showcase some of the fabulous finds in your store. I wished I lived closer (I'm in California) as I would totally shop at your place. Great tablescape. And no, I did not guess that the runner was a window valance. I'll have to steal that idea.

  11. Very PRETTY table... I like the use of a hat... FUN!

  12. a lovely tablescape....
    Hope your weekend has been beautiful
