As I’ve said before, if you are a bargain hunter, there’s a good chance that things don’t match – at least at my house! For a family dinner this past weekend, I needed eight place settings. I only had six of one kind of plate, so on each end of the table, I used a different plate. I got those little flower-shaped bowls and plates on sale at Pier One. There were only 6 bowls (two pink and four yellow. There were eight of the little plates (five pink and three yellow). That is the reason I have yellow bowls with pink plates and vice versa!
Metal chargers} Estate Sale; place mats, napkins, and napkin rings} I’ve had them too long to remember. My sister-in-law made that cute tureen and the plate that is under it!
It’s really strange, but about the only thing that I had eight of for this table are the milk glass stemware, and those were purchased at three different estate sales!
Salt and pepper shakers were a purchase at a Hallmark sale last year, and the little Ms. Bunny server was my mother’s.
Since it was our grandson’s birthday, the children’s table was a birthday theme. See that cute fork with the bunny handle? I ordered those from The Lazy Peacock Etsy.
Don’t forget “A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday”. I’ll have MckLinky up at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and I hope you’ll join. To read more about this event, please click here.
