Love pretty tables set on a budget? Please join me over in my Facebook Group, Thrifty Tablescapers, and let’s share tablescaping ideas!
Life threw me some curves this past year, including a broken ankle and a job loss, so although I wasn’t as consistent as I wanted to be in setting pretty tables, I did manage to do quite a few that I absolutely loved! Just for fun, here’s a round-up of all the tables I did this year.
January: Blue & White Currier & Ives – the china from my childhood that was given to me by my grandmother!
February: Ice Princess table using “Lisa” by Royal Doulton.
March: Pastel Spring table for two, using the cutest “chunky pottery” bunny plates and featuring a rather amazing spray of tulips!
April: Spring Birds table featuring salad plate set from Pier 1.
July: Summer Garden table featuring hand-painted plates from Bavaria, “Hostess” by Edwin Knowles, and “Formalities – Bernadotte” by Baum Brothers.
September: Faded Summer Early Fall table featuring hand-painted Haviland Limoges – one of many small sets that I own!
September: Secret Bonus Table! I can’t believe I never blogged about this one, but I promise to do the full post in January! My Provence-inspired table uses “Blueberries” by Royal Doulton, the prettiest light blue dinner plates by Fire King, and a set of white chargers with a stitching pattern around the edge. (Update: Here is the link to the Provence-inspired table!)
December: Thanksgiving Table with Old Country Roses by Royal Albert – my all-time favorite pattern.
December: Elegant deep purple table featuring “Windsor Fruit” by Johnson Brothers.
December: Red and Green Transferware luncheon table featuring antique English “Roxbury” by Meakin and “Shannondale” by Ridgways.
December: Woodsy table using “Woodland Santa” by Sakura, a coordinated set that features the artwork of Debbie Mumm.
