Thrifty Finds and alittle BLING~ Tablescape Thursday

I am joining the hostess with the mostess, Susan from Between Naps on the Porch, for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to check out all the other stunning creations from the talented tablescapers. We love playing with our dishes.
I am sooo lovin this centerpiece, and I have been enjoying it for about 2 months now. Pewter cake plate was a Christmas gift 2 years ago. It is hand-blown Italian glass with pewter accents. Good thing it was a gift because it is too rich for my blood. :) Layered it with glass dish from thrifty finds posting, covered candy dish from wedding shower, and small cloche from Rachael as a thank you gift. Added a little BLING BLING by dangling sliver Christmas garland and pearl strands.

Made a little nest from pearls from my little feathered friend....who could ask for a better nest than one made from pearls!!!

Bird's eye view of cake plate....stunning

Reflections of the past.....goblets from wedding shower, famous blogland Gibson dishes from Big Lots, thrifty find saucer, crystal bell belonged to my MeMaw Smith's crystal collection....rings crystal clear.

Reflections of sunset has faded and a new day has begun......

I adore my thrifty find yellow crocheted napkins. So springy....fresh.....and inviting! Don't you agree? Tablerunner was made from my curtain material. Mr. Hubby gave me the runner as a Valentine gift many years ago.

Don't you just LOVE the napkins.....don't be too jealous?
Green juice glass was a great find from Target last Spring. Love the vintage look! Totally plastic, but I don't care one bit. It is all about the beauty.

Another angle of the centerpiece. Floral wreath was a thrifty find this past Spring from Wal-Mart....only $3.50.....what a steal! The orante candlestick is another piece from my MeMaw Smith's crystal collection. Do you know the pattern? We always thought is was Rose Point, but I am not sure.

Even the salt shaker got a little BLING BLING....had an extra pearl napkin ring, so I thought...why not! I only have three of the napkin hoo!

Closing with an overview of the tablescape! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Hi Tonya...very pretty, I have to say the simplest thing I adored was the napkins trimmed with lace. Your centerpiece is pretty neat too!~~

  2. You have so many beautiful pieces. I especially love those green glasses. If you hadn't mentioned they were plast, I never would have known. Love those napkins too!

  3. In my previous comment, I meant to say "plastic" not "plast" I sometimes type quicker than I think!

    Also, as I was looking through other tablescapes tonight, I came across one with what I think is the same 3-armed candle holder as you have shown tonight. She says it's fostoria, and the pattern is Baroque. Here's her link:

  4. So many pretties! That centerpiece is a real show stopper :0)

  5. A very pretty table and the centerpiece is stunning!

  14. That's a stunning centerpiece - uber gorgeous! Those green and white plates are darling. I like the tablerunner. I tried to get a closer look to check out the scene, but I could not see it all.


  15. Tonya, your table is very elegant and I love all the details. The centerpiece is impressive and looks great. I really adore your napkins, truly work of love. And the plates matches so nice with the glasses, cant believe, that they are not glass? Your photos show so nice the different views. Lovely.
