Tablescape Thursday - dots that are Thrifty!




Dots and stripes began the whole idea, and it expanded from there.


The cups, pitcher, tray and candle are from Dollar General, and were---a DOLLAR each!


The red plates are from Pier I, clearance, and the silverware also from Dollar General---4/$1.00!

The silverware have dots on the handles!


The napkin rings were found at the antique store in Colby, Kansas, and have DOTS on them!!


The tablecloth has all the same colors as the dots, but is one of my vintage collection that I use and enjoy!

The napkins are some that I use a lot, because of their color, and the small blue dishes are some I've had forever, but provide the 3rd color I needed.


I hope you all have a wonderful Tablescape Thursday, and please leave a comment, or join my followers. Thanks especially to my mentor, Susan from http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ she's always so gracious and kind to invite us into her home, twice a week.

  15. This is such a fun tablescape. The dots, stripes and colors make me think of carnivals and clowns. I think we'll have corn dogs and cotton candy for dinner! Hmm...now where do I find cotton candy when there's no carnival in town?!
