Happy Day to you and welcome to my three table-setting picks that I believe everyone should have in their home. Now that sounds down right bossy doesn’t it? I think I should reword this and say how about saving money while decorating your table! Don’t you just love decorating even more when you find a super sweet deal!
Before I share my three essentials for your table and mine, I’d like to welcome you to Ten on the Tenth! You will find all of the links to this fantastic group of creative thinkers at the end of this post and trust me you will not want to miss one of them!
This months challenge was finding décor in our home that we actually use, that is actually around ten bucks. Whew, initially I drew a blank.
Just as I was about to throw the sponge in I rediscovered this darling vintage Farmhouse Tablecloth in my antique hutch. Now dear readers this tablecloth is the real deal. This vintage Farmhouse floral tablecloth is the original farmhouse décor from my farming family and is the inspiration and anchor for this post.
Don’t you just love this print! I think my Mom picked out a super cute tablecloth don’t you agree….
Well, on top of loving this tablecloth and feeling so inspired I discovered that I have many items in my home that hover around ten dollars and that I use frequently. Having made that happy discovery I just bet you’ll be amazed at what you have or what you can find to use in decorating your home too!
Tablescape Essential Number One: Creative Vases and Glorious Blooms
Vases filled with gorgeous blooms are just my weakness. Don’t be shy on your choice of vases either. For this tablescape I used three pink vintage vases and a decorative water pitcher. Total price for three chubby pink vases nine dollars.
Where do I shop?
I found these vases at a darling little consignment shop in Destin Florida and snapped them right up as fast as I could!
Live flowers I buy at the super market and then I make mini bunches out of them.
I always buy faux flowers on sale wherever I can find the ones that look the most real and you can never truly go too wrong with roses! These roses cost one buck a piece!
I have a secret to share with you, not all of the flowers in these photos are real…mix and match!
Tablescape Essential Number Two: Fun Plates
Do you love fun plates as much as I do? I am slightly crazy over them. Give me polka dots, stripes, butterflies and gingham! Happy Dance!! Just look at how this gingham plate adds interest and fun!
Where do I shop?
Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Home Goods, Pier One, World Market, Dollar Store, Walmart and I shop the sales.
Cost of each plate at 40% off $3.50 at Michaels.
Tablescape Essential Number Three: Colorful Napkins
I have about 4 dozen white, cream, tan, taupe napkins and I made do, I really did. I dressed them up with cute napkin rings and all was good. But a few years back I broke loose and purchased purple, yellow, orange, blue and naturally pink and it made all the difference in my table décor.
Where do I shop
These pink napkins are a recently purchase from World Market and they were on sale for $7.00.
