A Thrifty Tablescape!

If you have read my previous post you know that we are in the process of moving! Small prince and I are also out of state visiting family and looking for our new house! So much excitement and fun going on right now and with that said I obviously will not be able to keep up with my tablescapes every week as all those items will soon be packed and in boxes.

However, before leaving home I did some thrift store shopping and with my finds I was able to come up with a very quick and simple yet warm and cozy tablescape.

Set of 4 Home Trends Plates $2.00 each at the Goodwill

Amber Stemware $1.00 each purchased at the same time as the plates at Goodwill.

Tablecloth was a freebie that was going in the trash and Mr. Darling Dear rescued it and brought it home to me.
I have had the brown wood look chargers for several years now, they were purchased at a Thrift Store in Johnson City, Tn. 

Olive saucers were purchased at Goodwill as well and they were a set of 8 for $3.99.

The napkin rings were a Goodwill purchase and there were 4 in a box for $2.00
The napkins were a lawn sale find and were a set of 4 for $2.00 as well. 

The decorative finials came from the Dollar Tree.

I used the Golden Bouquet Flatware.

The iron tealight holder is from Southern Living at Home and was a freebie for me with my hostess credit. This piece is so great and can be used so many different ways, I really love it.

The large amber glass piece came from a Thrift Store and I got it for a whole $1, what a deal!!

Thank You so much for stopping by and I hope your week is Plum Perfect!!
