"Once Upon a Springtime" Tablescape

"Once Upon a Springtime" Tablescape

I just LOVE this checked and polka dot tablecloth, I purchased it at a Thrift Store for $1.00 and it was new in the package from Stein Mart.

I used a lot of colors in this tablescape and I just love how it turned out.

I purchased these napkins and rings at a Peddlers Mall here in Louisville for $5.00 and when I got them home I found a sticker on the back of one of the napkins for $4.99 each from Kohls.  

I adore these little egg cups that I found at a Sale in Indiana and best of all they were .10 each!! SCORE!

Spring Stemware purchased at Goodwill for $1.00 each.

Love the fragrance of this Spring Meadows Yankee Candle. 

I'm thinking this cute little guy may be a soap dish but I used him for some robin egg candy. He was $1.75 at the Goodwill.

I found these carrot trees at a Thrift Store in Jacksonville, AR for $2.00 each.

This beautiful picture was a part of my gift from a Easter Gift Swap that I participated in. You can go here Easter Gift Swap to see all the details! This picture is the inspiration for my tablescape.

Thank You so much for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed week!

This week I am partying with the following blog parties:
Tablescape Thursday
Potpourri Friday



  1. Very festive table! I love the mix of polka dots and stripes. I like most of the Yankee candle scents...have you ever been to their store...smells wonderful!
    I think you could give Cuisine Kathleen a run for her money on your bargains!
    Have a great week, Aledia!

  2. Aledia,

    Your table is amazing! Love all the goodies you have on display. That tablecloth is wonderful!

    Have a great week!

  3. Your table is beautiful! I think these are the cheeriest colors. I think people are happier in spring than any other time of year. So glad you let me know you came by!

  4. Aledia your table is gorgeous!!! :) I have been to the peddlers mall in Clarksville, Indiana...right outside of Louisville...is that the one you went to? We had a bloggers day out and went to some of the Goodwills, thrift stores and Peddlers Malls in and around the Louisville area. We had a wonderful time! :) We are SO close to each other...yet so far! lol Louisville is a little over an hour from me...so if you're ever in the Lexington area you are really close to me! Anyway, beautiful table!
    Oh, and yes God does work in mysterious ways...I thought that was SO cool! My hubby used the towel in his message that night as a visual aid...it worked out great and I smiled the whole way through the sermon! :)
    We did have a wonderful Easter...both mine and my hubbies parents came to eat with us and all three of our kids were here, so it was really nice. (and my brother too!) I had a house full, but it was wonderful.
    Have a wonderful "rest of the week"!

  5. I love your table, Aledia. It is very cheerful and colorful and most of all, love your bargain finds!...Christine

  6. Great Goodwill finds! Thanks for recommending Picasa. I've downloaded it but not really played around with it yet. Your table is so fun and full of color!

  7. Aledia, I like this colorful table too. You did a beautiful job creating a fun, springtime table. Plum Perfect, indeed! Nice to meet you. ~ Sarah

  8. You have some great finds there and I love all the color! I wish our thrift stores out here had such deals, tablecloths out here go for $4 and up, with stains:(

  9. You really scored some great bargains for this table. I love polka dots and all of the pink and white pieces are so much fun. Beautiful job!!

  10. What a pretty spring table! Love the eggs! And I adore your colors!

  11. Get outta town!!! I thought the table linen was actually TWO linens and thought, "Wow...really great thinking on her part!" Then I saw that they were all built into one! Great thinking on your part to pick up this jewel!!!! I love checks and polks dots together! And new in the package at that price...it doesn't get any better than that!!!!

  12. What amazing treasures you have found! You are obviously a smart shopper. I love all the colors and whimsical elements!

  13. I wish I could just give you a $20.00 and send you out to shop for me:) I never have much luck, probably because I don't go very often, I really don't like to shop. You had an adorable Easter table. I love all you great finds, and how you used them on this special day!

  14. Oh goodness pretty Aledia, you really found treasures!! You're so clever, I think I'll send you shopping for me, wow! I have to put purple dishes in my "wish list", I really like yours and I have NO PURPLE ANYTHING!! Your Easter table was amazing, I just love it all! Enjoy your weekend.

  15. I really like the "spring" look to your tablescape. I need to check out the Goodwill store near me more often.

  16. Wow you sure get good deals from Goodwill. Those shell plates were a real buy! And this Easter table is adorable. I love every detail!
