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!

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!)
