Tablescape Tuesday


Since I am still in de-clutter mode, I decided to post a very simple tablescape this week. 


It has been a little chilly here in Washington, so sit right down and I will serve you a nice hot bowl of  this cauliflower soup I have been wanting to try!  These bowls are some of my recent Goodwill finds.  They are Bohemia Czechoslovakian.  I just loved the pattern!  The dinner plate is from Fred Meyer and the chargers, tablecloth and table runner are from Goodwill. 

I just realized that there are no napkins on my table 🙂  – I guess I will be serving those with the soup!

Happy Tablescape Tuesday everyone and for more tablescapes (with napkins) head on over to Susan’s!

  15. Hello! It’s nice to meet you! I love Goodwill too. You can find some awesome deals on dishes and tableware there if you stop by often. I love the bowls and the way you layered the cranberry plate and gold charger underneath. It really makes the design in the bowl pop. If you get a chance stop by Carolina Panache. I’ve posted my fourth tablescape today. Nice site. I will visit often.
